    I haven't done this for a long time but if you use a program like Mac the Ripper to rip the film and then I believe it's something like Handbrake to convert it into the appropriate file format.

    If you haven't already I would recommend searching the forums because I'm pretty sure this has been discussed a few times before and you should be able to find a definite answer

    All you need is handbrake...or um, I think it's called something else now. Anyhoo, handbrake or whatever it's called does the job. A DVD in a nice quality iPod format is about 1GB so you can't have that many on the iPhone.

    The latest version of Handbrake is what you need. There is a specific Profile in there for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

    I ripped my copy of Die Hard 4.0 and it was absolutely perfect. Kept all the chapters of the film in there too.

    Only problem was that it took about 8 hours to convert on my Mac Mini 1.42 Ghz Power PC. I did it overnight so no big deal.

    just head over to http://handbrake.m0k.org and download handbrake. Has an iPhone setting in it which works really well.

    *bumping*

    I am having NO luck trying to rip Hairspray. When I try with MtR (3R14), I get error warnings:
    And finally,
    When I try just Handbreak (0.9.1), it scans 46 titles, and then I get only titles 29-31-33-35-36-37-38-39-40-41-42-43-44-45, adding up to around an 1:45, but broken into 14 separate titles.

    Am I SOL?

    I don't think you can rip Hairspray. I've tried with Handbreak and it doesn't work. Most other movies it works fine with though. Sad.
