Seeing as how I'm going to be returning to school next week (not happy about that), I'm trying to get some of my TV shows I have on DVD into iTunes and therefore, on my iPod. Unfortunately, I haven't the slightest idea how to. Can anyone who is more tech-savvy then myself help?

I'm not all that great with technology either, but I'm pretty certain there's a converter you can buy for such tasks.

Trying to find out how to watch MTM while in History Class?

Have you tried calling Apple's tech support?

Pretty much, yeah. And select other TV shows, of course.

And I'll check for converters, Dipsy.

Youtube have a number of tutorials for this to show you what to do. I havent done it before so i have no idea. A programme called Handbrake is mentioned often so ive put up two vids one for windows and one for mac

Have never done it before or used Handbrake so dont take this as recommendation thru previous experience.

You have no idea how much shit I got away with last year – if you're getting good grades, your teachers don't give a shit.

 

As for the topic at hand…

meanmistermustard, you are a hero. I'm still having slight issues with getting my TV on DVD to be a watchable quality, but HandBrake has allowed my downloaded TV (Yes Minister) to transfer to my iPod easily. Thanks!! apple01apple01apple01apple01apple01apple01apple01apple01apple01apple01

Anything to help you out in class but it was a simple google search that brought it up.

 

 Would have loved to have had an ipod to take me away from lessons and be able to watch a good comedy.
