You need to convert to mp4, m4v, or mov.

There are a variety converters--what operating system do you use--MAC, Windows or Linux?

There is also another called AVS. It does MANY formats.. not a FREE solution but it is pretty awesome and it can rip a DVD and put it into a file for watching on your Ipad or iphone/ ipod.

I cant remember if the demo lets you have a few free converts or if it stops after a certain time length.

You need to convert to mp4, m4v, or mov. The Mpeg4 and Quicktime formats are what apple runs off of.
