Help burning/copying DVD to computer

by princessalkane / March 10, 2008 3:45 PM PDT

I have a lot of DVD movies that I would like to transfer to my iPod video so I can watch while traveling. I know a DVD is like 4Gig's but my iPod has room.

Can someone recommend how to do this? I only know how to copy DVD to Dvd but not to the computer itself.
Thanks in advance.

I don't actually know. I really have a Sansa, not an iPod--it's just that no one has heard of it, so I mentioned the "popular" mp3/video gizmo.

That should be better yet.

I see the e-260 play almost every format under the sun. So I am pretty sure there are lots of software can do the job. I would suggest "ivideotogo".

(NT) Doesn't HANDBRAKE do this?

I'll look into both software's. It appears handbrake works for a week only.

Why a week only?

I thought it's freeware.

That's what the reviewers said about it. It works for a week, then nothing.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
