    What do you mean by "my own DVD's"?

    Are they DVDs that you created (say family or vacation video)? or are they DVDs that you purchased at the store etc?

    If they are the former, then yes and I will explain how once you reply. If they are the latter then discussing it would violate forum rules.

    DVD on to iPad 2
    I want to transfer my own family DVD,s. Is it possible to put shop bought films on to iPad or do you have to download from iTunes.

    Your family DVDs that you made are unprotected and not copyrighted material, so yes, you can copy them to your iPad or anywhere else for that matter. However, purchased or commercial DVDs are protected by DRM and by US law can not be copied or ripped.

    Please read our Sticky notice at the head of this forum about DVD ripping or copying.

    To answer your question: Yes, it is most definitely possible.

    Can we, on this forum, tell you how? no.

    can the almighty Google tell you how? probably.

    [of course, chscag is absolutely right in what he says. Breaking DVD copy protection is illegal.]

    If your own family DVD, you can find such tool in Mac Software in Apple store, I remember there is an software which named Leawo DVD Magic. It can only rip the DVD without copyright-protection.

    Look into Handbrake.
    CameraTime - Time lapse photography for novice and advanced users.

    When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

    Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.

    You can use Handbrake - a free tool that will convert your Home made DVD to an M4V file that you can drag into iTunes and sync to your iPad

    But thanks for your input.

    As to the original question in this thread.... asked and answered, so we're done here.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
