    I am able to upload my cd's to itunes but am unable to upload dvd's i own to itunes. I want to upload some movies so i can download to my iphone 3g. I was told on the apple site it was because they were copy protected. If this is so then that means i have too purchase the movies again through itunes. That does not sound right. Does anyone Know? Thanks

    Use Handbrake or MacTheRipper to convert your DVDs to .m4v format, then import those to iTunes.

    I tried Handbrake on my windows laptop, and found it didn't work too well. The mac version is probably better, but I would use MacTheRipper. It is free, and I have heard great things about it. I would recommend searching YouTube for some tutorials, they have some good videos on there.

    The DMCA along with the DRM on DVDs prevents you from making legal backups in iTunes. Handbrake or MacTheRipper will do what is needed. The Former will even encode them to the correct settings for your particular iPod/iPhone and import them into iTunes.

    iSquint or VisualHub are also good options for what the OP is trying to accomplish.

    For Windows, AnyDVD HD is pimp, but it's not free, but it rips Bluray and HD-DVD.
