    I may get flamed for this post, but either way I'm just frustrated and looking for help.

    I have tried about 3 or 4 different ways to successfully take DVD's, and load them onto my droid. Using different programs, and different audio and visual settings, I ALWAYS get out of sync audio or low quality video.

    Can anyone create or provide me with 100% foolproof steps to get video on my droid, starting with popping in a DVD (Arrested Development in this case) into my computer, and ending with me enjoying the show?

    If you don't want to help, no problem, but please don't call me lazy or tell me I didn't search. I have tried numberous methods found on these forums but none of the settings worked. Thanks.

    Il try ...

    I used avs4u,
    AVS Video Converter - a universal AVI to MPEG Converter, AVI to DVD Converter.

    I had the movie(DVD) in my laptop and ran that program

    Now I dont remember exactly but I think I connected the phone to laptop, and put the converted file in my video folder on the phone or if avs4u did .. anyways, you will get a watermark over the free version, I know alot of people use catalyst and I may try that next, I only did this once so far and if you cant tell I suck at explaining things..

    Then I used astrofile manager on my phone to go to the file(movie) on my phone and clicked it..

    dotheweb.net

    Someone suggested Dvd to Droid found on dotheweb.net

    Tried it a few times, and it works great. no settings, no fuss, just accurate transfers. Try it if you haven't.

    Could you post what you've tried so we don't suggest what hasn't worked for you?

    Have you tried DVD Catalyst? It's very easy and I've never had problems with videos that it has converted.
