I can't go into too much detail because of the questionable legality of doing this in the United States. You need to do two things: decrypt the DVD (if it is a commercially available dvd that has copy protection) and then copy it into a format playable on your iPod. There are a lot of programs that do this. Some do both. Some use a two program system.

Good luck

And also I believe the governments are trying to pass a bill that every purchased license of CD/DVDs of either video or mp3 were meant for 1 device. So. For your computer = 1 license. Your speakers downstairs = 1 license. It was a while ago though... probably got rejected.

But yeah. You can sync DVDs to your iPod as .mp4 files... considering you actually purchased the DVD.

Support the artists!

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?
