There are many softwares which can rip your DVD movies and convert them to be put into your iPod or iPhone. Most of these softwares have to be bought. Why waste money when you can do it for free!:) Here we will be using 3 free softwares to rip, convert and put it into your iPod or iPhone!:)

• MPEG 4 encoder: Videora iPod Converter (free download)

Now,lets say that you want to put your DVD into your iPod, you will have to rip it first to your computer harddrive.
But unlike ripping DVD to PC for which we use File Mode , we use the IFO Mode to rip the DVD for converting it to Mpeg4 supported by iPod and iPhone.
(If you are just converting files already on your hard drive, you can skip the part of ripping the DVD to your HD.)
Rip the DVD using DVD Decrypter
Put the DVD into your DVD-ROM drive and start DVD Decrypter.
Go to Tools > Settings, then select IFO Mode tab.
Click the File Splitting field in the Options section. Set it to None.
Go to the Stream Processing tab and select Enable Stream Processing.
Click the "DVD to Hard Drive" Rip button and wait for it to finish. When you are done you will have one big file ending in ".VOB" wherever "Destination" is set.
Convert the file with Videora iPod Converter
Start Videora iPod Converter.
Select your iPod model.
Next you will be taken to the Convert Section.
Choose the Normal Mode.You will need the internet connection.Normal mode has a step by step wizard guiding you through the conversion . Infact, you do not need a tutorial when you choose the Normal mode option.
The wizard will guide you through all the steps to convert the files.
You are done!
Your files have been converted!:)
Now for the Final Step!
