I have many vacation videos on DVDs. I would like to convert them to a format (wmv, flv, etc) in order to back them up on a USB flash memory stick or transfer to an iPad. How can I do this?
My tool of the trade has always been Handbrake. It's free, fast, and has easy options to convert videos to iDevices friendly format. Do check-out our articles about Handbrake via this link: //www.makeuseof.com/tags/handbrake/Also take a peek on several articles about DVD ripping://www.makeuseof.com/tag/5-simple-steps-rip-entire-dvd-hard-drive/And the answer to this question://www.makeuseof.com/answers/dvd-iphone-4-software-mac/Hope those links could help.
