    Hey gys,
    Just got my ipod cassic which is awesome and i love it. I was wondering though, how do I import DVDs onto my computer and then convert them to play on the ipod.

    Also, does anyone know of anywhere that sells individual iscocks. I don't want to have to buy a whole box.

    Thanks

    Edit:Ipod socks

    there may be easier ways, but I use the freeware app HandBrake to convert DVD's to mp4 format.

    Is that ap a one step solution eg. you put in the dvd run the program and it coverts it straight to mp4.

    pretty much. there is an iPod preset, or you can choose whatever quality / file size you want

    Yeah, and it's cross-platform, which makes it pretty much the best solution today for DVD to iPod. Just ripped the Star Wars: A New Hope with it the other day, and I can't complain. I love how it even adds chapter markers for you.

    just ripped an episode of seinfeld and it took about 30 mins. Awesome program and it's a one step process which is cool.

    Thanks heaps for the heads up
