    Frankly, I am not an iPhone fan. But, its 4-inch Retina display with 16:9 aspect ratio and 1136 x 640 resolution, as well as dual-core totally fascinates me.
    What I want to do most with iPhone 5 is watching my DVD collections on it. The question is how to transfer my DVD movies to iPhone 5? Which program do I need?
    Do you have any idea? By the way, my budget is a little bit tight recently after buying iPhone 5, so free program is the best.
    Thank you!

    There are various ways to do it what you want for free but they are always a pain and take a long time. Do yourself a favor and spend $10 for DVD Catalyst 4. I use it and it is great.

    Just go to download.com and get a DVD ripper for free and a free video converter. Pretty easy to do and free.

    For what I know , the most easy way to convert DVD to iPhone 5 is actually convert the DVD to MP4 or MOV format videos, and then add them to iTunes then to sync them to iPhone 5, then it OK.

    Handbrake. Far and away the best encoding software, and its free. For the time being you'll have to put in the need res but they'll have a preset shortly.

    I don't know if this is still is around, but with these two programs my brother and I have managed to back-up our entire DVD collections for use with our iDevices and Apple TV, its amazing. I have also used Mac the Ripper, but recommend these two, they are by far the two best of their respective kinds I have ever used.

    Handbrake and VLC for the win. Handbrake does an excellent job of ripping the movie into myriad formats for iOS devices (and others). VLC handles any required decryption. And there's a patch for using the new VLC 2.x with Handbrake available at:

    Fix HandBrake DVD ripping if you've installed VLC 2.0 | Macworld


    And all of the parts are free...

    I tried Handbrake and Mactheripper, they are good and useful.
    btw, you could also think about MacX iPhone DVD Ripper. Its producer is putting it in the giveaway activity and free iPhone 5 is provided as lucky draw.
    Hurry up, the activity has time limitation, as far as I know.

    I agree with 9thWonder. But I am using Handbrake and Pavtube (they currently have a sale) for all my DVD and ISO ripping. Handbrake is really a great champion freeware fave, however, the rogram can't rip copy-protected DVDs (commercial dvds which have protection) without a third-party add-on. so you'll need to add an intermediate step.
