Hi all

So I took up study and read about all the good ripping sites and apps to use and I finally decided on Handbrake which started off great, basically I:
>ripped bought DVD to handbrake on my MacBook pro
>clicked and dragged movie into iTunes
>clicked and dragged into 'movies' folder on iPad
>once downloaded disconnected iPad from mac and started to watch movie
>movie came out fuzzy and pixelated*

So my question is
1. Does this happen to every bought DVD if you are ripping it?
2. how can I stop the downloaded movie becoming pixelated and fuzzy?
3.will I get into trouble for ripping a bought DVD?
4. Finally would it be due to me having the laptop on my lap while downloading the movie to handbrake and me slightly moving around (only say that as I have burnt CDs before and if laptop moves while burning they come up dodgy)?

Hi

I'm a little iPad illiterate at the moment so reading the manual will definitely help.

Thanks you :)

The manuals are a great place to start and the tips and tricks thread will teach you lots of shortcuts that will make your experience with the iPad so much better. You can rip DVDs you've bought yourself but not ones that you just rent. I've included a link below which should help you, look for some links a member has included in his post. Hope this helps you.
