I'd like to remove any personal information from my video and music

Hi:

I have some DVDs and some CDs (and MP3 files ripped from these CDs) that I would like to put on my iPod Touch. I want to be sure that no personal information or DRM-related material of any kind exists in these files before doing so. Is there any software or process I can use to remove personal info and DRM from their metadata? I plan to use handbrake to rip my DVDs. I use LAME for MP3 encoding. Any assistance would be much appreciated.

Why do you need to remove that stuff if it is for your own device only?

Hi!

In addition to the question posed by "neuron2", I'd ask you the following:

How could there be any "personal info" on any of your original, purchased DVDs and/or CDs?

If you rip the CD to .WAV format, then convert it to .MP3 (or AAC for iPod within iTunes) there will be no copy protection involved. There are also a number of freeware programs that can convert a DVD to an unprotected .VOB, and others that can take that directly to a video file compatible with an iPod, all with no DRM.

Ripping software might put it in the ripped files.

Hi!

Of course what you suggest is possible but, the OP's question was:

Removing the new Generation of robust Watermarks is almost useless if you don't want to lower the content quality substantially (they can survive heavy transcoding), though these stuff is only used for Online content Protection never saw this used on DVDs ok maybe Oscar Jury Screener DVDs :P

DVD-Audio uses watermarks. And if a player recognizes the watermark in the content, but the disc itself is not protected, it will refuse to play...
