I need advice on (hopefully a free) program to rip my DVD's onto iTunes?
If not free is there a good cheap buy somewhere?

Thanks!
Edit - Damn, this looks confusing.
I would rather pay for something where I can pop in the DVD's and have them RIP into my iTunes library.
Is there anything for that? Or is Handbrake simple to use?

HandBrake is simple to use, if you have VLC Player (64-bit) and HandBrake (64-bit) installed.
Just pop in the DVD, select it as source, and apply a preset, and press START. Then add the file to iTunes yourself.

Also know, that ripping via HandBrake might take longer than ripping with a separate application and then transcoding the ripped content via HandBrake, due to the slow optical disk drive (ODD).

Anyway, there are also a lot of answers available via Advanced Search, if you don't like the answers you get here.
