Okay, now before everyone rips into me and goes off about piracy and theft and all that stuff, lemme explain...

I'm a pilot working toward my instrument rating. I have 18 hours of instructional DVDs -- THAT I PAID FOR WITH GOOD OLE (SOON TO BE WORTHLESS) US DOLLARS -- and I was wanting to rip them into another format and store them on an iPad. The only reason I want an iPad is for the ForeFlight App which is something that countless pilots have migrated to in favor of a paperless cockpit.

My plan was to buy an iPad2 and use it for all of my aviation tasks which would be 1) navigation with the GPS capability, and 2) flight instruction with the training DVDs and website tests.

I'm a long time Apple user, but never owned an iPad. I've read that the iPad can only play certain video formats, and to store DVDs on an iPad you have to "jailbreak" it, whatever that means.

In a nutshell, I just want to know if it's possible for me to store my DVDs on an iPad2. I have about 80GB of DVD video that I would need to compress to fit onto a 32 or 64GB iPad.
