Handbrake is by far the easiest way to get DVDs onto an apple device.

Totally agree with Graham. I wouldn't have suggested anything different. But just to add on that, the latest versions of Handbrake don't include a way to crack the DVD protection on commercial DVDs (this is so they can stay legal). To solve this problem - also make sure you download VLC and just put it in the same place as Handbrake. VLC has the info Handbrake needs to crack the copy protection. You can download that here: http://www.videolan.org/

In the same directory, so if you put Handbrake in /Application/Multimedia then you should put VLC in that folder too.

You should read the HandBrake documentation - for example this bit - and if you don't understand anything try the HandBrake forums which you can reach via the "Community" link.
