# Step 1: Rip DVD to iTunes compatible digital format

The first thing is to convert DVD disc movie into a digital video/audio format for iTunes - MP4, MOV, M4V, and select a reliable DVD ripper.

Import DVD by clicking "DVD Disc" -> Choose "iTunes (MPEG4 or H264)" at "to iTunes Video" under Apple Device category -> (Selectively) Execute personal settings like selecting/adding subtitles, cropping/trimming video, adjusting the video parameters and define the output video saving folder -> Hit "RUN" to start DVD ripping.
