Why I hate Free DVD to ipod converters…

December 16, 2009

The reason I hate free dvd to ipod converters is because when I wanted to convert a dvd to play on my ipod the first thing I read was about a free converter.  This converter claimed is was made by a group of programmers who have a reputation for building software like this and that they strongly believe their software is the very best for this type of conversion.

Well… It’s not!

2 hours later after a tedious install and a nightmarish user experience I was finally set up to convert my first dvd.

Than… it said my DVD was encrypted and it cannot convert this dvd!   Well.. All dvds are encrypted!  All

except the ones that no one wants to watch that is!   What do they think, I’m going to sit down and enjoy watching my fathers 3rd wedding!!!  Of course not.  But that was the only non sense that this self pro claimed “high class” dvd to ipod converter was able to convert!

All other dvds with real movies on them have encryption.  And this company wasted their time building one that can’t convert those types of movies.  And.. to make it worse, they than preached about how their converter was the best… How dare them!

Ok, enough ranting.  That is why I hate free dvd to ipod converts.  They claimed everything. Even that they are better than dvd converters that work.  Once you actually try to use them, they are nothing but a 2 hour disappointment.

Do yourself a favor and stay away from those.


Questions about converting DVD to Play on Ipods?

The most popular question…

How do I convert DVDs to play on the Ipod?

You can not convert dvds with Hollywood movies on them to play on your ipod with free software.   I recommend you read real user reviews of dvd to ipod converters (click that link) to find the software that is proven to convert any dvd to play on ipods.

Is DVD to ipod converter software easy to use?

If you get the right kind it is.   With the right software the process is extremely simple.  They basically guide you through each step in the conversion process and make sure do not mess it up alone the way.  I’m pretty sure a 5 year old can do this.

On the other hand, free software is not so easy.  I tried to convert one dvd to play on my ipod – without paying for good software.  It took me an hour to figure out how to use it, than finally it told it is in capable of converting this dvd because of the encryption- I was bummed.  Do yourself a favor and go with a quality dvd to ipod converter the first time.  You won’t be disappointed.

What DVDs can you Convert to play on your ipod?

You can convert everything.  If you have quality software, like Cucusoft (The one I use.) you can convert the kitchen sink to paly on your ipod – well, not literally, but what every dvd you want to paly on your ipod, you can.

That includes downloaded vides, Dvd that have been encrypted so there not able to be copied – which includes most movies on dvds.  These all can be converter with Good software.
