Well, after about 4 years of service from my original iPod mini, it was time to upgrade to something bigger, so I bought the 80GB Classic. I love it! Absolutely love it! I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to rip or put DVD's onto my iPod? I am using handbreak right now, but it the whole process seems time consuming. Does anyone know of a quicker way to do it?

Re-encoding DVDs is one of the very few remaining operations where processors as fast as the current ones can actually still make a major difference. If it takes a long time, a faster CPU or lower quality settings for the destination format could help.
Just one other thing: Since your iPod uses a mechanical harddisk, please make sure to handle it very carefully. Jogging or other intense activities should never be done while using any harddisk-based device. That's what flash players are for!
