    Oh no. I was saying that either of those 3 would work.

    you can rip it to the hard drive with dvd shrink and then use handbrake to encode it for your itunes/ipod

    I use DVD Decrypter (free) and AnyDVD HD (not free but great). Then I use Handbrake to Encode for AppleTV and iPhone (I encode so that 1 m4v file can be use for both - do a search here for more information).

    Step 1 takes about 15-20 min.

    Step 2 takes about 2 hours or more.

    encoding will always take a long time so there really is no way around that. and the above mentioned rippers are great i personally use DVD Decrypter. its fast and free. the two unbeatable "F's"

    +1 for DVD Decryper (since I mainly rip my DVDs on my PCs.)

    However, AnyDVD is a VERY nice app too.

    AnyDVD HD -- hands down, the best DVD/Bluray ripping utility currently out on the market.
