    Is it possible for me to download some DVDs onto my iPad ? I know I will have to burn them onto the computer first then put them on the iPad but I don't know how to do that. I don't have a mac, I have a Sony Vaio (not willing to dish out the $1,500 for a macbook haha) How would I go about doing this?

    Handbrake is very popular and is also free. Windows and Mac versions available.

    Hi,

    I'm a newbie for the Ipad. I'm a pc user and had been using "Freemake Video Converter" to rip DVD. With three weeks exposure to my new Ipad, I learned that the software can export directly ripped videos to Itunes at the same time. Hope you will find this helpful.

    Thank you for your information. I'm going to try it when I get on my PC.

    You can try customizing the preset "IPAD3" by clicking the middle icon as shown in the picture (red arrow). You can select Ipad1, Ipad2, or Ipad3 presets as shown in the blue arrow.

    You might want to give DVD Catalyst 4 a shot. I have a guide for how to use it with the iPad3 here:

    http://www.ipadforums.net/dvd-catalyst/79710-dvd-ipad3-quick-easy.html

    Movies from DVD should end up around 1-2GB in size (depending on the length of the movie) and if you are using a recent computer, it should run at at least 2-3x real time and if you are using a quad-core system, it will be quite a bit faster than that.

    The guide above covers just about everything, so it looks quite long, but here is a brief idea of how it works:
