How to Rip DVD to iTunes for Free


Want to watch movies from your own DVD library on your iPod? With Instant Handbrake, free software for Mac OSX, you can easily make any DVD into an iTunes-compatible movie.<br /> <a href="http://handbrake.fr/">HandBrake</a> is an open-source program designed to convert MPEG video (including DVD-Video) into an MPEG-4 video file in MPEG-4 Part 14 (.mp4) or Matroska (.mkv) containers. The program is used to convert DVDs into other forms so they can be viewed on iPods, iPhones and with the Mac QuickTime Player.<br /> <a href="http://www.rip-dvd-copy.com/images/how-to/handbrake.png"><img src="handbrake.png" /></a><br /> Step by step guide:<br /> 1: Install Handbrake<br /> Simply download the "Windows GUI" from the Handbrake download page then run the installer. It's that simple. If you get a prompt telling you that you don't have the correct version of .Net framework installed, then you'll need to download this from the Microsoft website.<br /> 2: Select your DVD source.<br /> 3: Insert your DVD. You many need to stop the auto-play.<br /> 4: Hit "Continue" in Instant Handbrake. It will begin to scan your DVD.<br /> 5: Select the file you want to convert. For full-length movies, this will be the file with the longest duration. For DVDs of TV Shows, please refer to the "Tips" section.<br /> 6: Select where you want the converted files to be saved to. It's a good idea to save it to your "Movies" folder in Mac OSX.<br /> 7: For the rest of the options on this screen, select H.264 for the "File Format," and for the "Picture Format" select "Original." This will preserve the picture format (wide or full screen) that's on the DVD.<br /> 8: Hit "Convert." The movie will now be converted and saved to the folder you indicated in step six.<br /> 9: Launch iTunes.<br /> 10: Navigate to the folder your movie is saved in and drag the MP4 file into the iTunes Movie Folder.<br /> 11: Hook up your iPod and sync up - or if you manually transfer from iTunes to your iPod, drag the movie on to your iPod. Now you're ready to enjoy your movie on the go!<br /> Tips & Warnings:<br /> If you have a DVD of TV shows, it's recommended that you export each individual show. DVD's have a "Play All" feature, which is all the episodes jammed into one file, this will be the longest duration in the list of files you get in step 5.<br /> You can also export to PSP format if you've got one of those. H.264 is the best quality format for iPod.<br /> Handbrake is a more robust version of Instant Handbrake. The program offers more options, but the concept is the same. This will work on Windows and Linux as well as Mac OSX<br /> Copy protection may prevent DVDs from being converted to iPod format.<br /> More tag info: <a href="http://www.freedvdripper.org/rip-dvd-to-itunes-free.html">rip dvd to itunes free</a>, <a href="http://www.freedvdripper.org/">dvd ripper</a>, <a href="http://www.freedvdripper.org/dvdvideoguide/how-to-rip-copyrighted-dvd.html">How to rip copyrighted dvd</a>.<br />

Can't install cd disk in mac mini. Won't go in.


Hi Roberta, do you have any small (or not so small for that matter) children?
Normally if a CD won't go in, then there is something else already in there - quite often a foreign object like a credit card, a Mini-CD or a biscuit!
When tyou insert your CD does it come to an abrupt stop or does it come to a soft spongey type stop? Does it make any noise?
If it's the former then there is probably something already in there.
Regardless of what happens I think you are heading towards a service centre to have it looked at.

Lost iphoto back catalog after an import, is there anyway to recover these photos?


the back catalog of your images are not gone. Since the pictures you have uploaded form your camera to iPhoto all those files are still there. All you need to do is re-load the images into the library of iPhoto.
1) Start iPhoto, then in the menu goto File / Add to library..
2) Then a file browsing window will open, all you need to do is locate the folder in which u had specified to iPhoto. (Default location for iPhoto is located at MainHD / Users / Username / Pictures / iPhoto Library
3) Once you have located the folder or folders you wish to add to your library or catalog just press import. And all the images should show in the catalog.
4) if you have more pictures saved in another folder, then repeat steps 1 to 3 again. but in step 2 locate the folder or drive you wish to import from.

Trying to scan a photo from my HP Photosmart 2575 to my Macbook


Hi,
You can't scan directly into iPhoto however the software that came with your HP scanner should have something that can. If you don't have the software you will need to download it from the much easier to navigate HP.com site. Once you have scanned them using HPScan you can transfer them into iPhoto by drag and drop from app to app or Finder to iPhoto.

All the best

Mac makes loud sound when burning cd in itunes


How old is the MacBook? Have you done a lot of CD/DVD use? I would say the drive maybe going. Take it to an Apple store and the Genius bar to confirm.
