    I've got a number of DVD movies I'd like to load onto my iPad but can't see how to get them in. iTunes doesn't seem to be setup for that (yet) but you can load in audio CDs and tracks. Any thoughts?

    iTunes won't rip a DVD like it does a CD because there is copy protection on most DVDs. What you need to do is remove the copy protection and then encode the dvd in an iPad friendly format. It is a lot easier than it sounds ;).

    I use a Mac and use a program called Mac the Ripper to remove the copy protection. I then use Handbrake to encode. I use the AppleTV preset since they both the iPad and the AppleTv support max 720p video. I am assuming that if it plays on an AppleTV, it will play on an iPad.

    For PC, I used to use DVD Decrypter to remove the copy protection. It's been over 3 years since I had a PC so there may be better programs out now. Handbrake has a PC version so that should take care of the encode.

    All the software I mention is free. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the reply, I hadn't even thought about these things being encrypted, duh... I'll give it a try, will this enable the movies to load into iTunes for syncing with the iPad? I guess since we don't have them yet, we can't be sure. Thanks again for the reply.

    I've been using Handbrake as well and am very happy with it.

    I'm not going to attempt to circumvent copyright protection on any media. It's not a political statement; I just don't think that it's right.
