So I'm a PC user. The iPad will be my very first Apple product. I will definitely be getting the iPad. In preparation for it's arrival, I wanted to rip some DVDs and encode them so that I cna sync them with the iPad the day I get it and just enjoy them instead of mess with converters all day. Which brings me to my questions. 1. What file type should I either try to rip to or convert to? 2. Is there a suggested program I should try? Free would be better 3. Is there any special advice for a first timer? Resolution? Any tips? Thanks guys.
