hello you guys, i came across a good article when i idle about the net,i shall enjoy it with you all,hope it will helpful!
i get it form this link:

HOW TO Rip DVD To iPod Using Free Software
• Download Handbrake.
• Insert a DVD of your choice. If DVD Player opens, quit it.
• Run Handbrake. Select Detected volume, as shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1. Selecting the video source in Handbrake
• Click Open. Handbrake will detect all the titles on the DVD. If you're ripping a movie, just select the longest title in the list. If you're ripping a TV show or something with multiple episodes on one disc, then select the episode you want, as shown in Figure 2.

Figure 2. Selecting a title
• In the Destination section, set File Format to MP4 file, as shown in Figure 3.

Figure 3. Selecting the proper file format
• Set Codecs to MPEG-4 Video / AAC Audio, as shown in Figure 4.

Figure 4. Selecting the proper codec
Note: A previous version of this guide suggested using the "AVC/H.264 Video" codec, but that does not work because the video iPod can not play the H.264 files that Handbrake produces. I have first-hand reports that the MPEG-4 Video codec works correctly. As an added bonus, MPEG-4 encoding is much faster.
• For File, enter the full pathname where you want to save your movie, as shown in Figure 5.

Figure 5. Setting the output filename
• In the Video section, set Quality to Average bitrate and enter 400. This can be as high as 768, but unless you squint you probably won't see much difference. Higher bitrate = higher quality video = larger file size.

Figure 6. Setting the video quality
• Optional - Under Quality, select 2-pass encoding, as shown in Figure 7. This takes twice as long to encode, but it improves the video quality and doesn't make the file any larger.

Figure 7. Enabling 2-pass encoding
• In the Audio section, for Language 1, select the audio track in your preferred language, as shown in Figure 8. Given the choice between MPEG and LPCM, choose MPEG.

Figure 8. Setting the primary language
• The Sample rate is entirely up to you. Higher sample rate = higher quality audio = larger file size. The video iPod is compatible with any of the sample rates supported by Handbrake.

Figure 9. Setting the audio sample rate
• For Bitrate, you can keep the default of 128, or select a rate up to 160. Higher rate = higher audio quality = larger file size.

Figure 10. Setting the audio bitrate
• Click Picture Settings. In the Picture Settings dialog, decrease Width until either it reads 320. Handbrake will auto-adjust the height to match. For a full-screen movie, the height will end up at 240; for wide-screen movies, it will be lower.

Figure 11. Resizing the movie
• Close the Picture Settings dialog and click Rip. Encoding time depends on the speed of your Mac, the length of the movie, and whether you selected 2-pass encoding. Handbrake will display a progress bar, as shown in Figure 12.

Figure 12. Encoding progress
When encoding is finished, quit Handbrake.
• Run iTunes. Find the .mp4 file that Handbrake created and drag it into your iTunes library, or select Add to Library… from the File menu and select the encoded movie.

Normally I close these things right on the spot but it seems as if you avoided any rule violations. You aren't advertising a product as you aren't providing any links to software, just an article. You also aren't linking to executable files nor are you hotlinking to another sites images. You also avoided mentioning DVD decryption which is also a rule violation.
