    Please see my comment there about why the title of the guide entry should probably stay as is.

    Why I locked it: To stop people from frakking it up. The instructions are 100% fine as is and do not require editing.

    While the article may be correct, that doesn't mean it's necessarily perfect. As it is there are a number of improvements that could be made, such as formatting, writing style (first person shouldn't be used) etc.

    As for the page title, titles starting with "How to" are discouraged for sorting purposes, so it will need to be renamed at some stage. "Ripping a DVD to a Video iPod" or similar would probably be better.
