For those of us that are running OSX, i have the easy solution for you, a program called Handbrake. Instead of writing out the directions, i found this website that will guide you perfectly. Click here. One thing to note: If you have the new 30gb or 80gb iPods, remember to set your video resolution to 640x480 ! It looks great and after you rip them you simply just drop them into your "movies" library in iTunes. You can rip TV shows or Movies! VERY EASY!
