If I convert ISO to iTunes format, which is best? MP4 or MOV? Also, would I still have the interactive menu options like special features etc as inserting the actual DVD?

Hi. If you are using Aimersoft DVD Ripper, please check the preference settings, here\'s the way: Click \"Tools\" > \"Preference\" and tick \"Add Files to iTunes Library after conversion\". If it still don\'t work, you can open iTunes to sync the files from the output folder.

Ok, I just purchased DVD Ripper for Mac. I\'m running OS 10.8.5. When I try and launch the program, I do NOT get the window described in the tutorial. I get a gray looking window with the instructions to load a file, or drag one \"here.\" When I try and drag something there, nothing sticks. What I want to access is the window shown in the tutorial ... Help!

Yes,there is a \"Subtitle\" setting in the main window of the program.
