    Is there a software I can use to 'rip' DVD movies into a format I can load onto my iPad? Do the DVD's I purchased have some sort of anti - copy or anti - rip scheme inherent in them making this an iffy proposition for some DVD's? I ask because I understand some DVD publishers resist you making copies of their DVD's as backups & I suppose this would be a similar tech.

    TIA.

    Most of the new DVD's have a digital copy included with them. You can use something like Handbrake to convert them to a format for the iPad.

    Not all are new and in fact few are. I guess I can just try Handbrake to see what I end up with. Thanks.

    If it's legal in your area and you're doing it for personal backup reasons, you can't go wrong with Handbrake. You'll need to install VLC as well since Handbrake doesn't include the decryption elements themselves any more.

    OK, thanks. I have VLC. As far as I know, I'm doing nothing illegal or unethical where I am. After all, if the iPad had a DVD reader attached, it'd be the same thing, but I don't want to buy / carry that reader.

    AnyDVD by SlySoft is also a good DVD decrypter. As Rene said as long as it is not illegal where you are you can use that to decrypt your DVD's.

    No. I'm sure it has to be legal. I own the DVD's. Thanks for the added suggestion.

    You need third party software. The DVDs will be protected but it's nothing to worry about, I've never ran across one that couldn't be ripped.

    Thanks, guys. I did buy a package and it's working fine once I diddled the settings well. Nice to have my library of DVD's available for play in the iPAd.

    Somebody recommended me to use Any DVD Converter Pro. But I didn't purchase it yet.
    I will try download it, to have the free trials first.
    If it helps, you may download the free trial too.

    I'm not aware of the capacities of VLC. I do know that I've had no issues with the Ifunia product, but ai also can't say if my DVD's are copy protected and if so, by what method. I only know that the results have been perfect so far.

    Not sure how well it works in the Windows environment. It works pretty consistently and pretty well in OSX. I know that past versions of HandBrake worked better in OSX than Windows... and I thought that I heard that HandBrake was no longer developing the Windows version, but I can't find any source for that info at this time.

    Also, as far as I know, VLC does NOT 'remove' the copy protection... rather, it is able to decode the movie though the copy protection... and that HandBrake uses VLC to get the past the copy protection. Maybe from where we consumers see it, it's a difference without a distinction, but that's how I understand it.

    Finally, I have discovered a couple of movies that the HandBrake/VLC combination won't work on - one was the grandkid's Yogi Bear movie... so it's not flawless.

    Clueless here. How do you copy the movie using vlc? That's the only problem I'm having. I got one movie I had on my computer and used handbrake fine.

    Are you using a Mac or PC? I don't think the VLC think works the same way on a PC... but I use a Mac, so this may or may not be of any use to a Windows user - the process could be different, internally.

    You don't copy anything with VLC. You just need VLC installed on your Mac. The HandBrake program takes advantage of the VLC link to read/decode copy protection - you can use VLC to simply play copy protected DVDs on your Mac (and probably your PC, too). VLC has the code to be able to read/play the DVD content, despite the copy protection. HandBrake just takes advantage of that piece to be able to read your copy protected DVD.

    DISCLAIMER: I only use this process to rip DVDs that I have legally purchased. Please support the motion picture industry and DO NOT STEAL content/intellectual property. It's wrong, and it's not cool.

    Worked great ! Faster than hand break and removes the encryption ! Has 30 day trail but I'll prob buy once thats up! Just a shame hand break could not so the same even if I had to pay ...

    Hank thanks for the info as well I guess handbreak is just limited and if I end up buying why have two apps that do the same thing so yes handbreak is free but no it can not copy anything
    Also DVD fab does blueray as well

    Thank you for sharing.I think DVD to iPad is great.It allows you to merge, trim, crop and watermark your video. Moreover, you can adjust the video brightness, contrast and saturation to prefect output.

    Handbrake is my go-to application as well but I have noticed thar the audio is very low when viewing on my Apple TV. Have you had this issue?Any solution?
