    I have a progam I used to rip my blue rays and dvds for the iPad2. Now that the new ipad has a better resolution has this process changed at all. Please send a link with any helpful info. I tried to do my own research, but failed. I ordered the 64 gig and gave 12 movies that I watch often and would like to have them in the best formate possible. That you for your help.

    I'd doubt the format has changed. Keep in mind people watch the movies on ipads, iphones and ipods. The only thing you may wish to do is increase the resolution of the ripped movies. This will of course make for a larger file, but the 64 gigs should allow for plenty of room for that.

    The largest ripped movie I have in my collection is Avatar, and that's ripped to 1080p and is a very long movie... I think it's somewhere near 4 gigs. There are very good rips of the same movie that are smaller too, I just haven't bothered to get one.

    If you're using a separate app for movies, you can just leave them as they are. If you want the Movies app to play the movies you have, the format can be done as 1920x1080 @ h.264 mp4.

    Yeah the only thing you would need to change is the resolution. Now the iPad can handle full 1080P so as mentioned above 1920X1080 should look great on it.
