    Hello, I have a bunch of home movies on DVD that I'd like to put on my external drive and play on my Sony GTV. Can anyone recommend the best/easiest ripping tool and best movie format for GTV? I have the movies in a format that I used for my Windows Media Server and Boxee, but those aren't working (can browse to the folders, but video files aren't found). FYI, I'm using a Mac now, so any recommended tools would need to be for a Mac.

    thanks in advance!!

    DVD Decrypter > Handbrake.

    For more info look at the BlackBerry PlayBook forum.

    Just use the default Handbrake settings, but make sure you select 576P.

    I think the files are MP4.
