Part of the reason for buying Apple’s 3rd generation iPad (called ‘The New iPad’ at Apple’s official website) is to use the device as a portable video player (aka PVPs or portable media players). And The New iPad is truly a solid PVP which has all the PVP must-have features such as, 9.7 inches Retina display shipping 2048x1536 resolution, Built-in 42.5-watt-hour battery, 16GB-64GB storage space etc.
Of course, the purpose of Apple making The New iPad suitable for viewing video is to attract more users to buy or rent movies/TV-shows from iTunes store. However, some The New iPad owners may have a huge DVD/Blu-ray collection that they’ve been building for years. No one want to repurchase all their movies on iTunes store.
In this article we’re going to teach you how to copy DVD’s and Blu-rays to The New iPad for on-the-go viewing. By checking the specs of The New iPad, we know that video files in the MP4, MOV, M4V format can be played on The New iPad. In order to watch a DVD or a Blu-ray on the device, you need to use a DVD/Blu-ray ripping and converting program to ‘rip’ the contents off a DVD or a Blu-ray to local hard disk, and then ‘convert’ the copies to The New iPad playable video formats, finally using iTunes to sync the converted video files to you’re the New iPad.
In fact, there are a lot of DVD/Blu-ray ripping programs on the net.
