    Is there an easy way to take a DVD Movie you own at home and put it on your iPad?

    If YES, how?

    Thanks!

    Use handbrake to rip it, add to iTunes, then sync.

    Doesn't work with all DVD's though.

    I tried this with 3 DVD's and it didn't work with any of them.

    Any other "better" programs for this?

    Handbrake is the most popular. Are you using Windows or a Mac? Can you explain the problems you experienced?

    I'm using Windows. When I choose the source, it tries reading (did it to all 3 DVD's, Patriot, Bolt and Spies Like Us) and it takes several minutes then in the activities section, it shows error messages and says something like Handbrake has exited, or something like that.

    DVD Shrink is another highly respected DVD ripper. It is free and worked for me when Handbrake would not. You may still need Handbreak to convert the format.

    Nah, seriously! :confused: I used Windows 7 and it worked fine. Can't do it on Mac since the 2011 mini has no optical drive. :(

    It might be because of the copy protection on the DVDs. As someone else said, Slysoft's programs are great. In conjunction with Handbrake, it'll do what you want. There's also DVDFab (the free version).

    All should help you accomplish putting DVDs onto the iPad.
