You must be wondering why you are not allowed to convert and import DVDs to iTunes as it seems not such a big challenge which Apple could not resolve. And once you rip DVD to iTunes, the DVD movies could be available within the whole Apple-line products: Windows and Mac iTunes library, Apple TV, iPod, iPhone, and even iPad(How to: DVD to iPad ).

Sounds like it is possible to make the best of both worlds, however, Apple is not likely to say yes, at least for the following three points:

1: The entertainment giant will kill every product that hurt their copyright protection, even if their position isn’t legally tenable, they could try to tie down Apple in expensive litigation.

2: Convert DVD to iTunes would not add up Apple’s financial interest, but only shrink the demand for its online iTunes Store. Apple could earn from $3 to $15 per click, depending if you rent or buy. So why not stay with the profits?

3: Because there are already so many freeware/shareware can do ripping DVD to iTunes.
