Step 10:

Now you're stuck with a pretty big file that you need to get onto your Pocket PC. If you did the encoding on a laptop and you have a PCMCIA to CF adapter, than transfer should be really quick. Simply insert your CF card with the adapter into one of the PCMCIA slots and transfer the movie onto your microdrive/CF card. If you did the encoding on a desktop, than you probably don't have the luxury of a PCMCIA slot. You are going to have to transfer it to your Pocket PC via a IRDA, USB, Network, or Serial connection.

Now enjoy watching your favorite DVDs on your pocket PC! ^_^
