    Sure, just copy them into your computer using handbrake (free app) then import them into iTunes. Hotsync and you have them in your iPad.

    Then you are going to need to stay with iTunes.

    You were given four options and you chose not to pursue any of them. iTunes is for you.

    Fishplate - I'm sure you saw your HandBrake User's manual which patiently explains exactly how to use it.

    https://trac.handbrake.fr/wiki/HandBrakeGuide

    If you "don't do computers", you probably shouldn't. Either that or be prepared to learn.

    I would think, given most commercial DVDs have encryption for copy protection, that Handbrake would be less than ideal.

    That's right. I don't know how Handbrake manages to retain such a good press. I checked it out last night so I could write some instructions for it. It took over 2 hours to generate a 4Gb file which didn't work. Totally useless, IMO.

    I use WinX DVD Ripper Platinum for my son's DVDs. Just click on the "to iPad & Tab" tab and then copy to your iPad once it's finished.

    Well, run makemkv to get a bit-perfect *.mkv file. Then run handbrake on that. How long it takes depends on the bit-rate you ask for. A 4gb file is pretty large, especially for a DVD. I pack 30gb blu-ray rips down to 1.3 GB. And it takes way less than 4 hours!!!

    Edit: I thought I was replying to Kevin's post, sorry!

    Ps. Makemkv handles the encryption.

    Pps. There are other ways to do this, but these tools are free.

    That would work. I ran the original copy protected disk through handbrake.


    So it might still be useful then.
