So im about to start putting some of my DVDs on my itouch.
I see the method listed here in another thread:
You can't rip DVDs into iTunes. It's illegal. But if you're really
interested in doing it anyway, there are options available. You're
going to need a progam that decrypts the DRM on the DVD so that you can
rip it to your computer. I use DVD43, which is freeware.
In addition, you'll need a DVD transcoder to rip the DVD onto your
computer. The free industry standard is HandBrake, a program that works
well and has many different configuration settings. Again, I use it
whenever I want to rip (legal) DVDs.
Finally, if you want to get it onto your iPod, you'll need a program
that will re-encode the video from an AVI to an iPod- or
iPhone-compatible MP4 h.264 format. I use a free program from
DVDVIDEOSOFT, which is simple but works well.
So have DVD43 running (it's just a tray icon) when ripping using HandBrake, and then convert using DVDVIDEOSOFT.
My question is, will using this method let me get the bonus menus from the DVDs? Or is there some special trick to getting them?
