    Did you search the forum? I didn't have time to search it for you but I know someone just posted about a program to convert from DVD just the other day. Try and search before asking... chances are it was already answered. Welcome.

    DonnieDarko, Welcome to PinStack.

    That's more of a basic PC question than specific to BlackBerry or the Pearl. I haven't done any ripping of DVDs to my harddrive yet, but there should be software available that will allow you to do it. Here are two threads that discuss ripping DVDs. The Original: Video encoding for the 8100 and "BlackBerry Video Creator" - $15 - Recommend Use the Search this Thread feature when you open the Thread and search for ripping DVD to find the exact posts referencing this.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.

    they are usually even more than that and blu-ray movies are over 20 gigs. but you can use a program that will convert them to an AVI file, and also convert the size way down so that it only takes a couple hundred megs of space. one of the bad things about doing this though is you lose picture quality. i would rather have more movies and music on my media card so i just deal with it. lol

    Okay... Just let me run you through it. Download the following: DVD43 and handbrake. Not see programs and you can google them. Install both, and reboot the computer as necessary.

    Now when you boot up, DVD43 should start. If it doesn't, run it and let it minimize. Pop in the DVD you want and wait for about 20 seconds for DVD43 to to read it. Start up handbrake, and wait for that to read it. Now go to "browse: go to your computer, select the DVD drive, and go to the VIDEO_TS folder and open it. Hit enter. Go to the chapter select "drop-down" menu and find the longest one; that's your movie. Not go to destination, and choose where you want to save it, as well as the format. Select one of the presets in the right-hand pane, and then hit start. I use the "broke" preset.... Hope this helped...
