I know it can be done with a PC, but can this work with a Mac? If so what programs would I need and what are the settings?

Use Handbrake to rip into a QVGA (320x240) .avi file - can't remember exact settings, but play around with it. Dump it on the memory card and use TCPMP as your player - should work fine, if you don't mind the small screen size. I've only watched a little bit, but I thought the quality was more than acceptable.

I used Mac the Ripper and Handbrake, but it file is still large. Or do I just use Handbrake?

I just used Handbrake. For a whole film, it took about 4-500Mb. Not sure if that's what you are getting or expecting, but its why I get decent quality. That's why a 1 or 2Gb miniSD is worthwhile...
