I am completely new to the digital world. I don't have a digital camera (use a Hasselblad and Nikon F6, black and white only). I am tired of carrying my computer on the plane for movies and music. (I don't have a iPod or any type of portable music player). I want to watch my own DVD movies and listen to my own CDs using the iPod touch if possible. Can I download my own DVDs and CDs onto an iPod touch or do I have to pay via iTunes for music and movies. I heard of ripping DVDs which are encrypted. Would I need such a program to load my movies and music onto the Touch and what program(s) would you recommend. What kind of software is included with the iPod touch? I probably wouldn't buy music/movies over the internet but would want to load my own DVDs and CDs. Thanks in advance.
