    I have some exercise DVDs I own & use regularly by playing them in my Apple laptop. I would really like to get them onto my iPad. This would allow me to just prop up my iPad and exercise along with the program without hauling along the laptop and all the discs.

    How would I get these DVDs onto my Ipad?

    Thanks for much for your help.

    Personally, the quick free easy method i use is to rip the dvd to my hard drive first using DVD SHRINK , then convert to ipad format, via about 2 buttons, using HAND BRAKE.

    Those are all good but do require a little effort. I have all of them but I chose to buy Pocket DVD (PQ DVD). It's not free but works every time and is easy to self learn with no fuss. It even works on "locked" DVDs. And will send directly to the iTunes video section for syncing. I first used them for their DVD-to-Palm Treo software. So they have been around for awhile.

    The link I posted is free. Dvd shrink wont bypass current encryption methods on the dvd.

    They don't have the software for iPad, just iPod on their website. What are you actually using?

    You're probably not going to find a faster method.

    A typical movie on DVD is 4-5 + Gig and you're crunching it down to about 1 Gig. That much work while maintaining quality takes time.
