Transferring your DVD movies to play on your iPod, iPhone, Touch, or Nano could be simple, or in some instances, time-consuming and difficult. There are many iPod converters available, but just a few are worth purchasing: some are too costly, some are hard to use, and many aren’t reliable sound and/or picture is messed up by them, or they can not convert new movies). An excellent iPod converter must meet the following conditions:

This program should allow new in addition to higher level an effective experience to users. For novice users, an excellent converter must have a choice for automatically adjusting controls to ultimately achieve the best results. For advanced level users, there must be the capability to by hand adjust a broad number of parameters. A great iPod converter must also allow converting from both NTSC and PAL DVD movies.
Excellent iPod converters is found for around $40.00, and they will do anything, and usually more, than some of the more expensive programs. You can test and get the affordable way, using two or three free programs in combination (Videora, DVD Shrink, Handbrake, etc.), but I came across that the free programs included a large number of measures, produced mixed results, and wouldn’t change many new DVD films (those produced in the last four years). Do not misunderstand me, I’m a thrifty person, and if there is a cheap way to do things, I’m usually on-board, in this case, the hassle just wasn’t worth every penny. The advantages provided by a good changing program far outweighed the trial and error issues I came across using obsolete free programs.
Changing your DVD movies to play on an iPod allows anyone to watch a common movies and T.V. programs while on the bus or subway, on planes or long drives, or if you have a few free moments. DVD conversion software is getting more and more popular, while they facilitate an ideal transition from the ‘big screen’ to the ‘little screen.’
