To start, I'm pretty much a novice at this. Many of my DVDs are going bad with scratches so I wanted to copy them on my computer and put them on new DVDs. I tried Handbrake, but didn't work well. Then I got Mac the Ripper, which has been great for making a direct copy of my DVDs in the Audio/Video TC folders and playing them via DVD Player. Awesome, I've already done a bunch! Here's what I want to do:
As I found out, DVD-Rs are only 4GB and most movies are much more than that. Is there a program that will somehow strip off all the extra junk and just leave the movie in it's full audio/video quality? Can I convert the files already on the computer, or do I need to use the DVD again?
I also want to convert them to play in iTunes/iPod/iPhone. What program will let me do that fairly easily? I've seen the programs on other threads, but will they work with the files I already have on my computer? I don't want to lose the DVD-quality files either.
Basically, I want to use Mac the Ripper to get the full DVD copy, make a strip down copy from that that can be put on DVD-R, then make a converted copy of that which will work in iTunes.
Easy? Too much? Thanks for you help!"Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others"
