How to get my DVDs on to my iPad & iPhone

Summary: The guide shows you an easy way to rip and convert DVDs to Apple Device playable MP4 format for watching on iPad and iPhone.

I have bought some DVD's which I would like to transfer them to the iPad & iPhone so I can watch my favorites on my iPad & iPhone while travelling. Now I'm looking for ways to get the DVD movies onto iTunes, and then sync to my iPad & iPhone.

It is really great to enjoy favorite DVD movies on  iPad & iPhone. However, it is reported that DVD image files can't be played on iPad or iPhone directly due to the disc protection and format problems. So I search this question by googling, then I was suggested to get this best DVD to iPhone/iPad Converter to remove thing protection, then things become more easy.

After many trials, we select this DVD Ripper from Pavtube and it work great with removing DVD protection quickly (a few minutes during the importing) and smoothly converting them to MP4 which is preferred by IOS devices without any quality and sync issues. Very easy to use.  So I purchased the software.
