    I'm getting an iPod soon and I have been trying to copy my DVDs to iTunes so I can put them on my iPod. I have tried running it through MacTheRipper but whenever I try to open it the movie is still encrypted. I really need some help on this because I don't know what I'm really doing and I really don't want to buy a program because I'm low on money because of the iPod, I also have tried other programs and they could not even read the DVD. Please help.

    If you're trying to rip for an iPod, I recommend either Instant Handbrake (if you can still find it), or iSquint.

    Would depend on which iPod you have. I think they're up to 640x480 now....but if that doesn't work, search around the net. I only have a 20GB 4G iPod, so, no movies for me :(

    I've been having trouble getting my movies to the right size. I have been able to get them on iTunes but I don't think its is the right size for my iPod. I'm getting a 30G video iPod so if anyone knows the size for movies using that screen it would really help.

    In the newest version of Handbrake/Mediafork you can encode straight from a DVD to h.264 iPod compatible files. Handbrake/Mediafork
