JD, are you on Windows, or Mac?
here's a link for converting commercial DVDs to a file you can imort to iTunes and xfer to the iPod:

Commercial DVDs are copy protected, so you will need the programs listed in those article to copy them. Nice of the companies to make you jump through hoops to use the product you bought from them legally, huh? While it does nothing to stop real pirates anyway. arggggg.
