i use ultra video converter. http://www.funadvice.com/photos/put_dvd_movie_computer_burn_ipod_touch
but if you dont want to pay for the converter then nchsoftware.com do a pretty good one called prism video converter.
If you need to convert AVI to MP4, this free program can work for you: http://funadvice.com/r/15f7nfnlfio
