    Handbrake works fine just learn how to use it. Been using for my iPhone and Touch for almost a year, and have had zero problems.

    Check the latest version of handbrake and it allows you to setup the conversion for many different screen sizes, this has been available since many versions ago.

    What are the exact settings that are being used? I've ripped over 100 DVD's without a single problem, they all work fine on my iPhone, Touch, and MacBook Pro.

    On that website, it says "Mac users take note: this release is only compatible with Mac OS X Leopard, 10.5." I have a PC and I use Windows XP. Should I download that version?

    Yes, I Google a lot, but I was under the impression that there were different versions and numerous different download sites. I was just asking nicely what website you guys use. Thanks. :)

    That is the website, click on downloads and there is a Windows version waiting for you.
    Remember that you are in macrumors not in pcrumors.
