How to convert DVD to PSP, 3GP, iPod, MP4, WMV, DivX, XviD, AVI, MP3, etc. Step by Step

1. Download the latest all-in-one DVD to Video tool at and install to your computer.

2. Load your DVD movie from targeted drive by clicking on the 'Add DVD Folder...' option of the 'File' menu or the 'DVD' button of the main interface.

All files from DVD disc are uploaded as the following picture:

Tips: a. The button allows us to edit listed titles/chapters like renaming, removing, checking, etc, which is the same as the 'Edit' menu.
b. By clicking on the button, let the software show or hide Chapters.
c. Two main modes to convert DVD
One is title mode (converting the whole DVD to one file), the other is chapter mode. After loading the DVD to the dvd Converter software, you can click the quadrate button which is between the red button and the "Title" button. This button helps you switch the display between titles and chapters. If you convert in chapter mode, you will get a file for every chapter. When the list box displays the titles not chapters you can convert the whole DVD into one file.
d. The button is to start converting.
e. The button provides us with more converting choice like converting selected, converting ALL checked, etc.

3. Now we may select the output format from the 'Profile:' drop list box. The DVD to Video Platinum is the most powerful DVD Converting tool I had ever seen. It can convert DVD to all popular video and audio formats, such as DVD to AVI, DVD to MPEG, DVD to DivX, DVD to 3GP, DVD to MP4, DVD to WMV, DVD to iPod, DVD to PSP, DVD to MP3, DVD to WMA.
To show its strong functionality, here I select different output format for each chapter such as MP3, iPod video, PSP video, AAC, MPEG, MOV, Mobile video/audio, etc.

4. (Optional) The settings of output format are adjustable, which may be found on the right string. Converting clip, video size, Bit Rate, Frame Rate, and Sample Rate may be all set according to special needs.

Tip: There is an information window in the middle of the string, further explaining specified term.

5. In 'Zoom' section, there are four options. 'Letterbox', 'medium', and 'pan scan' will convert 16:9 format to 4:3 format. The Full option does not correct the aspect ratio. If you have a 4:3 DVD, use the Full option.

6. In the 'Split' drop list box, we may select the size of the volumes that we would like to generate.
Tips: a. 'Infinite' refers to generate one file.
b. 'Custom Size' and 'Custom time' allow you to enter the specified size by clicking on the 'Configure' button.

7. Click on the 'Browse' button to select the output folder or directly enter the output folder.
ALL settings have been completed, clicking on the button to start converting.


Advanced Tips:
a. The 'Open' button may browse generated files directly.
b. Clicking on the button may save certain profile as your favorite name. Now I enter Nokia as my favorite name for 3GP which has been listed on 'Profile' drop list box.

c. In the 'Tools' menu, select 'PSP Video Manager' to upload generated PSP video files to your PSP with ease.
d. In the 'Preferences' window of the Settings menu, there are many settings to be adjustable.

* Save your DVD drive:
Create a temporary buffer to avoid having the DVD drive being switched on/off too frequently. If you use a RAM buffer you can also disable virtual memory to obtain an even faster converting speed. The file will be written in your Windows temporary directory (TMP environment variable).
* Luminance filter:
Adjusts the brightness level.
The Y plane is the luminance plane (in YUV format). Applies the formula: Gain*Y + Offset on the Y plane. Gain is an 8.8 fixed point value. (0 = 0.0 ; 128 = 1.0 ; 256 = 2.0 ). Therefore, (using an offset value of 0) a luminance filter value of 128 does not change the brightness level; whereas a value of 256 will double the brightness level. A value less than 128 darkens the movie.
* Volume:
Gain of the audio output.
No normalization is performed; so, if the value is set too high, clipping of the audio signal may occur. A value of 1 can not generate distortion (crackling), but the output sound may be very low. The default value produces a good volume for most DVDs. You can make a few clips of the movie where you know the volume is high, and adjust this value in order to get a satisfactory volume.


Transfer and sync iPod video to your iPod

Set 'iPod 30G' or 'iPod 60G' as output format: Before converting DVD to iPod MP4 video format, please make sure the 'Profile' is 'iPod(30G)' or 'iPod(60G).
Playback the iPod video files: After converting video files to MP4, find the .mp4 file and drag it into your iTunes library, or select 'Add File to Library' from the 'File' menu and select the encoded movies. You can watch it with iTunes (Free) or Quicktime Player (Free) on your PC.
Sync to iPod: Click 'File -> Update iPod'.

Tip: You can download iTunes + Quicktime Player package from


Transfer and sync PSP video to your PSP

Playback the PSP video files: The PSP video files converted can be played with Quicktime Player (freeware).
Transfer to your PSP: Connect PSP to your computer using a USB cable. In your PSP, press "USB Connectivity" menu. If you use a memory card reader to transfer the video file, please connect your memory card reader to the computer.

In your PSP, Create a folder called "MP_ROOT" and inside that folder create another folder named "100MNV01".

Solution1: Transfer automatically
In DVD to Video Platinum, click "Tools -> PSP Video Manager " menu. You will see an explorer window that lists MP4 (video) files and THM (video thumbnail) files on your PC. You can transfer files by moving them to "MP_ROOT100MNV01".

Solution2: Transfer manually
Connect your PSP with PC, and copy those two files into "H:MP_ROOT100MNV01" (where "H" is the drive letter of your PSP).
Re-name your files in PSP. You must re-name them to "M4Vxxxxx.MP4". "M" and "V" should be capital. There would be five random numbers followed "M4V". The numbers must be same for the two files. This is quite important, or your file can not be played on PSP.
