Supposedly it's not legal but I take up issues with this. Your not trying to redistrbute it or profite from it so I don't see why it should be illegal to view the DVD on a different device than your TV.

Have a look at Handbrake. It's a conversion software that has presets tailored to idevices. It may not work though if the disc is copy protected but it's free and worth a try.

I've used Handbrake on the Mac for over a year for exactly this purpose and it works great. In fact you can set the compression levels higher for use on an iPod nano and get 4 or 5 movies onto a 4G iPod and still have room for a little music, which is what I do for our kids for long trips in the car.

I use it all the time as well, works great for converting TIVO files into usable video for my iPad.

Hey kunmerpark, have you ever tried converting a copy protected DVD? Just wondering if you ran into any issues, I haven't tried it yet.
