So you have got a great DVD collection that you have been building up for years, and a nice shiny new iPod video ~ how do you go about transferring some of those DVDs to the iPod to watch on your flight?
The answer can be found at DVD software. This online store can supply iPod conversion software for straight conversion from DVD disc to iPod format, as well as software for converting other video formats to suit the iPod, so all those downloaded movies on your hard disc can be added to iTunes too The software supports most file formats including DVD, vob, DivX, XviD, MOV, rm, rmvb, MPEG, WMV and AVI. One advanced feature we liked was the ability to convert straight from DVD to iPod (some other converters make you convert to avi format first, resulting in a loss of quality and extra time spent).
DVD software offer these two software packages independent of each other, or you can buy them bundled to save a few dollars. They also carry a large range of other useful DVD related tools, and have a great FAQ section.
