    I have lost count of the number of threads asking this.

    Please use the search box.

    But yes, Handbrake + VLC is good.

    Handbrake can't get past all copy protection, so RipIt is a great program for getting movies onto your computer, which you can then encode with Handbrake.

    I asked before

    When the iPad first came out I asked these kinda question so be it old news I have to help out.
    Download handbreak
    Use the Apple Tv settings
    Rip
    Then go into iTunes and make the movie for iPad settings

    Your looking at about 1.5GB on avg.

    Some external cheap DVD drives also have no region lock.

    I didn't think it was about region lock? I thought it was about encryption / copy protection.

    Yes, it works for Windows.

    I agree, it is getting annoying. DVD43 gets past the copy protection, that way you don't have to run two processes just to get one file :)

    Well, Handbrake may be the easiest one and free to use, if you do not need any extra options.

    However, I am stilling looking for the best way to add softtitle into m4v for iPad viewing......

    What is the best way to save the subtitles of a DVD into .srt format on Mac?

    Handbrake plus Subler has some problem when playing (not smooth if I turn on the subtitle). Any ideas?

    Actually, besides Handbrake, the second option to you is using Leawo DVD to iPad Converter — powerful and easy to use.:D But it's not free and not so expensive also.:( Whatever...

    Why on earth would you encode things twice? This is not the correct way IMHO.

    Faster processors will convert quicker.
    2.5h seems a bit long, either it's a slow processor or you had other stuff running in the background.

    Shucks. I read the thread headline and thought "now this sounds like a way to afford an iPad". (It's early)

    1. Check the data side the DVD. Clean if needed.
    2. Are you trying to rip a BluRay on a DVD only drive?
    3. Is the DVD upside down?
