Well I just got my 30g ipod today. Anyhow I know how to transfer shows from a dvd on to my computer and put it on my ipod. Anyhow I want to know how I would go about getting rid of the pauses in the dvd. Like if I put a movie on there the movie will come out in 3 parts. Also is there another program that gets rid of commercials? (I have this old tape that I just burned to a dvd and it has commercials on it). By the way i'm using windows. Thanks for any help!
