DVDs to Ipod

My brother gave me his old Ipod Video for Christmas. Because he has a mac and I have a PC, he had to erase all the Data on it. i was cool with it, because it would've done that anyways. I just wanna know. He had my DVD of Transformers on his ipod, but he told me he used no software to get it on. I'd like to know how to do this on my XP. Also, I'm watching it right now on Windows Media Player. Can that help me?

build a automated dvd machine (for a LOT of dvds)

  I am wanting to be able to line up the dvds something like a carousel but would rather have them in a row so that i can make more rows to add more disc.  I was thinking of using those clear plastic discs that are packed in spinals of discs but i cant even figure out what to call them so i can order bulk of them. If I cut each one in half (the clear plastic disc) then they would be good spacers. and help would be Great. Thank You In Advance.   A robot arm will be doing the retrieval.
