I've tried Handbrake.....and it gives me an error and closes.... I've tried Freemake, which I loved until the video and audio weren't matching after 5 conversions. I've tried Aneesoft, which seems to be working, but won't let me convert the whole file (breaks it up into 23 min sections.). Super Converter....currently testing... So....I strongly prefer this to be a free converter. I am looking to convert some of my dvd's so they can be played on my new ipod touch-4g. I have used the search function, but I would like some more suggestions.....what do you use? Thanks!
