If you’re here to find out how to copy DVD to iPod free, you’re in the right place. Wanting to take advantage of your iPod features to watch the latest DVDs is a not a bad idea. What I’ve found is that it’s not so easy finding a site that provides the necessary software for you to copy DVDs to your iPod for free.
I specifically used the search term ‘copy DVD to iPod free ‘ and I was presented with many options. Thankfully the Internet security software I have on my PC flags up dodgy sites that offer less that above board downloads.
When my search results came back, there were 4 out of 10 questionable sites on the first page alone. If your security program doesn’t rate search results you should be very careful about following instructions on websites with shareware programs. As part of your evaluation, try to get the opinion of anyone that used the site or try to flag anything that looks suspicious.
With that said, the following sites appeared to have a clean bill of health. I suggest you still take precaution with the shareware programs that are promoted. So here goes.
Drive To Mark
The first thing I noticed on this site is that (at time of writing this article) the information was over two years old, so all the instructions may not be compatible with iPod versions released after that date.
You are required to download the Handbrake software and then follow the on screen instructions which are quite straight forward, so a newbie should not have any problems.
The next thing I did was perform a separate search for Handshake DVD software, the warning sign I got was to take caution with this site, which is fair enough, as you would always proceed cautiously with freeware programs anyway. So there were no major adverse warning signs concerning this option.
The Sofotex website got the green light straight away and what I like about it was that it was, at time of writing this article, updated to the current year. What was not so cool though is that you are required to pay a registration fee of $29.95. While you wanted free software, I thought it would be a good idea to give you all the options so you can evaluate the safety of free versus paid software to copy DVDs to your iPod. There are several user reviews, so you can read what experiences others have had before making a final decision.
On this site you have choice after choice of free to try software you can use to copy DVDs to your iPod.
The downside is, to use the full version you have to part with some cash. I know, I know, you are interested in free versions, but there just aren’t that many out there that do not come with a warning sign and it just won’t be right to list those ones as you may end up paying a lot more that the $40 if some dodgy software wipes out your computer hard drive or captures and abuses your personal details.
You can try the free versions of the software and see how much you can do with it. Unfortunately the site does not say what restrictions (if any) apply to the free to try version, so you might actually be able to copy your DVDs to your iPod without purchasing the full version.
Final Option For Copy DVD To iPod Free…
This is the last option I will present. Again it is a free trial version program and I could not find any warnings about the software. To use the full version you have to pay $34.95. There are various options to choose from, so depending on your intent you’ll have to evaluate each software option.
It seems that there are not many truly safe and free options for Copy DVD To iPod Free. If you are risk averse, feel free to try some of the other free software found in any search engine, but I just could not recommend them in this article knowing they have red flags next to them.
Whichever option you choose, I hope you get your desired result in a safe manner.
Enjoy watching your DVDs on your iPod.
Just a reminder note:
The legality of DVD ripping will vary based on your country of residence and Gizmoactive does not endorse violation of the valid rights of copyright holders, and strongly recommends that you consult your country’s copyright and fair use laws before copying any video.
