    I have been trying to do this for a long time. I am totally lost. I was ready to throw the thing out the window. I am glad that DHL came and picked up my PB to have the screen fixed. I have the dvd ripped to the point of done on Hand Brake, but I can not import it to itunes. How on earth do you do this. Does anyone have a step by step process?????? I try to import the whole dvd, but it takes me to a screen of files that I have no idea what they are.

    use handbrake to load the dvd, then convert it to mpeg 4, this takes a while (about as long as the tv show but depending on how good your mac is, if you have a PowerMac G5 it will be quicker if you have an older mac it will be considerably slower...) and when its done it should have created a file called Movie.mp4 on your desktop... just drag this over the itunes icon in the dock to import it into iTunes.

    Hope this helps.

    I have read that post alot. I have not seen the movie file on my desk top. I think that the file was in my movie folder. I will have to wait until my PB is returned from apple care.
