    Put in a DVD. Open Handbrake. Select the DVD as the source. It will auto-select the feature for you. Open the side drawer and select "iPhone". Then mash go.

    yes its very easy. I haven't used the version that ur using now but there might be a iPhone preset. But if there isn't just rip it using the 1000KB/S bitrate. Then it will rip it to ur desktop and then u can drag it into iTunes.

    Well, I don't have the program handy, so I don't remember what the button says exactly. I'm sure it's something like rip, or encode, or play, I dunno. I'm sure it's obvious.

    In any case, after that, just add the resultant file to your iTunes library, go to the Movies section and Get Info on it to add tags and artwork if you like. Then plug in your iPhone, add it to the list of movies to be synced, and sync.

    If I were you, I would rip DVDs using the AppleTV preset.

    You may get a larger file size, but it will be more like DVD quality and will prevent you from having to back and rerip all your DVDs in the future if you want better quality (or if you get an AppleTV).

    Just put a DVD in, select the source in Finder when it pops up automatically, select the AppleTV preset, then push Start.

    You should then see a file on your Desktop, which you can then name and add artwork. After that, just drag and drop into iTunes.

    Trust me, the AppleTV preset will look much better if you ever plan on watching any of the ripped movies on a screen bigger than the iPhone.

    Remember, it is easier to convert down, not up.
