It is rather easy to convert a DVD, or just about any movie file, to run on your iPod. Downloads: 1) In a search engine like Google, search "download DVD Decrypter", download it and install it 2) Also search, download "RipIt4Me", and install it. 3) My favorite iPod video converter is PQ DVD to IPod, search "PQ DVD Ipod". You need to pay for it (about $40 US). Conversion: 1) Put your DVD into your computer's DVD drive. 2) Launch RipIt4Me. Rip your DVD to your hard drive. 3) Launch PQ DVD to IPod Converter. Load the DVD files from your hard drive. 4) Once the video is converted, launch iTunes, then select File -> Add File to Library. Select the file you created in step #3 above.
