    Download Handbrake. It has a preset so pretty much all you have to do is drop in the disc and hit "Start" to rip to a perfect format for the iPod Touch.

    Make sure you selected iPhone/iPod Touch format in the Window on the right.

    Then once its ripped, drag and drop into Movies in iTunes.

    Cheers, I've been using Videora and DVD Decrypter but the video ends up being choppy with an audio delay.

    This program looks good though. I'll try it out in my spare time. :)
