DVDs to iPOD

Discussion in 'Hardware - PCs, Consoles, Gadgets' started by allyjs, Jan 15, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Anyone know how to get dvds onto itunes and then onto their ipod?

    Want to load my existing DVDs instead of having to pay twice for them by downloading from itunes.
  2. Download Handbrake - it will rip and convert in one. I have only used the Mac version, and that is excellent, but I have no doubt the Windows version will be the same (albeit not as cool).

  3. Will this work 'the other way round' ie iplayer to dvd so l can play films l have purchased legally on my home cinema system?

    If not, does anyone know how this can be done?
  4. Google Red Kawa its simple mate....Any problems gime a shout!
  5. i use dvd fab

    this converts and outputs to ipod psp etc etc

    free trials are available from fengtao software

    its worth every penny as i never have a dvd i cant rip


    you can also make multi discs with it
  6. Is the above comments in response to the original topic or can l convert itunes movies to dvd format using these programs?

    Ive had a browse through the weblinks, but lm a bit of mong at media files so any advice hugely appreciated!
  7. do all of these programs work on windows vista??

  8. I use handbrake, its good as you can change the output to psp, iphone, itouch etc

    re this Handbrake program - every time I've ripped a dvd to play on my psp using other programs, I find the sound very muffled - what are peoples experiences with this software may I ask please?
  10. I've always found Handbrake delivers a perfect rendition of the original in iPod form and would thoroughly recommend it (and it is free).

    I swear by slysofts stuff, http://www.slysoft.com/en/ Their products are spot on. I can play, copy and send to my iphone anything I have ever thrown at it.

    AnyDVD runs in the system tray and intercepts all DVDs and rips out the encryption and region coding on the fly, so your PC always sees an unencrypted DVD.

    CloneDVD copies any DVD I have ever asked it to.

    CloneDVD mobile will rip it and convert it to anyformat for use on a portable device.

    Theres cracked versions out there, but I have been so happy with them I paid for them and get regular updates. I've been using them for several years and there hasn't been a single issue it couldn't handle and very much plug and play.

    As for the other question, turning downloads back into DVDs, theres a few out there. I'm away from home right now and can't check which one I'm using, try a google search, but again theres plug and play ones out there that work like a dream.

    Edited to add, I'm sure slysoft let you trial their stuff for 21 days so give it a go, you will never look back.
  13. just had a look at handbrake for windows. as im a computer mong ive no idea if i need GUI or CLI.
    what are they and whats the difference?
  14. Using HANDBRAKE....its taken 1.5hrs to do 38%......is this normal!?.....MASSIVE BALL ACHE!
