Normally DVD’s are protected from being transferred into an iPOD. But, there are ways to solve this problem. Some DVD ripping software tools are available that could be used for this purpose. There is a software WinX DVD ripper that could be used. This is developed by Digiarty Software. This has to be installed into the PC if you have to use it.
This is a software program that helps you to copy the content of a DVD to a hard disk drive. This device is helpful in transferring a DVD to some portable devices like iPODS and even mobile phones. The DVD Ripper Platinum is user-friendly and is suitable both for professionals and even beginners. You need to load a DVD movie into WinX DVD Ripper Platinum and select the title that has to be ripped. An appropriate format has to be then chosen for ripping the DVD. You should customize the video settings according to what you want and click on the big ‘START’ button. That is all!
DVD Ripper Platinum bypasses many other copy protection technologies. It supports most popular portable devices. By using this you can play on the iPod, iPhone, PSP,Zune and even Mobile Phones.

All kinds of parameters are adjustable and users can easily optimize their video quality like resolution, output video size and video frame rate. You must know that there are certain requirements for using WinX DVD Ripper. You need to have Windows 98, NT, 2000, 2003, XP, Vista (32 & 64 bit) or Windows 7 (32 & 64 bit)
The operating system that you use is very important. The end goal is to rip the DVD and install it into your iPod. You could rip it to an MP4 (mpeg4) video file at 320 x 240 solution and it can be played both on the iPod and iPhone. You must know that iPods will not accept video at resolutions that are higher than 320 x 240. A typical DVD movie will take up about 500 to 700 megs when converted. If you are using any new ‘DVD ripper’ you need to blow out any existing ones you have already installed.
Some of the conversion methods are very simple. You can use just a common 2 step process. (1) You have to covert the DVD from its format to avi files and (2) convert the avi files to mov files. Later, you can upload the videos onto your iPod via iTunes. This may seem rather long and complicated. It requires thorough knowledge and patience.
You must make sure that the software is user friendly.
