Two Quick ways to rip and sync movie DVDs to iTunes losslessly...

You must be wondering why you are not allowedto convert and import DVDs to iTunes as it seems not such a bigchallenge which Apple could not resolve. And once you rip DVD toiTunes, the DVD movies could be available within the whole Apple-lineproducts: Windows and Mac iTunes library, Apple TV, iPod, iPhone, andeven iPad(How to: DVD to iPad).
Soundslike it is possible to make the best of both worlds, however, Apple isnot likely to say yes, at least for the following three points:
1:The entertainment giant will kill every product that hurt theircopyright protection, even if their position isn't legally tenable,they could try to tie down Apple in expensive litigation.
2:Convert DVD to iTunes would not add up Apple's financial interest, butonly shrink the demand for its online iTunes Store. Apple could earnfrom $3 to $15 per click, depending if you rent or buy. So why not staywith the profits?
3: Because there are already so many freeware/shareware can do ripping DVD to iTunes.

Itunes drivers for importing and burning CDs/DVDs missing where can i get them? Bill

It seems that some users installing iTunes 8 on Windows systems are encountering an error message:

“ERROR: The registry settings used by the iTunes drivers for importing and burning cds and dvds are missing… Please re-install iTunes”

iTunes uses GEAR software drivers for importing and burning CD’s & DVD’s. Re-installing (or installing the latest GEAR drivers seems to fix this problem. No reboot required for this install.

You can get the current GEAR drivers here: http://www.gearsoftware.com/support/drivers.cfm

If this does not fix your problem download a fresh installer for iTunes here: http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

Uninstall iTunes, reboot, & then do a fresh install of iTunes.

Hope This Help You
