    Is it possible to get my DVDs copied to my IPad? In looking online, it seems like I need some sort of conversion program. Do they really work?

    DVD rippers have been around for a while now, just make sure you rip the DVD to mp4, or a format that the video program that you are using will play

    Thank you for your replies. Now I'm going to express my ignorance.... I have an IPad - older model and a PC and am near illiterate to both. I want to put some of my old movies on the IPad. There are a ton of programs out there that you can download.... I want something that is dummy proof - kind of a push a button and it does it for you without a lot of decisions on independent settings that I would need to make. Goals are simply getting the dvd on the IPad, saving space to the extent that is possible and having good video and audio quality on the DVD that I put on the IPad...

    Help???

    Hi,
    I´m using Handbrake, but having problems with brightness. The converted “movie†is to dark.
    Tomorrow I´ll try the iPad Converter Suite
    I´ll tell you if it does a better jobb

    I use Handbrake on both win7 and OSX to convert for the iPad and really rate the program. Especially when you can line up six or seven and just leave it running in the background.
    That said I also stream a lot of videos from my machines to the iPad with on the fly conversion. Since ZumoCast is currently unavailable, AirVideo is a good alternative.
    Sure saves storage on the iPad.

    I have been using Xilisoft for years now, they have really improved their encoding software for all the new i devices thats out. There is a trial version to test before you purchase. The speed and encoding quality is awesome..

    I am a fan of the Slysoft programs ANYDVD and CloneDVDMobile. They are very straightforward and I have fantastic results.

    But they have gotten a bit expensive.

    Like you, I am a real novice. What I need is an idiots guide! I've tried downloading handbrake, but I just don't understand how it works. Any chance of a step by step guide anywhere?
