If you are not sure then, insert the DVD into your Mac, then right click (control + click) on the cd icon on the desktop and choose "Open".

Can you see two folders names " Audio TS" and "Video TS" ?

Expert:  Ashik replied 7 years ago.
All i want to know whether it is a DVD-video disk or DVD data disk. If it played automatically, then it should the DVD-video disk.

So, Lets Start !

You can convert DVD videos with a software named Handbrake(free). First download it...
Download Handbrake

Mount and Install the *.dmg file that you downloaded i.e the Handbrake application. Then insert the DVD video disk into your Mac's drive and open HandBrake. It will bring the source window. Select the DVD drive icon and click Open
Now, you can see a message box with 3 options, from it click on the "Attempt Scan Anyway", then the video file will be add into Handbreak

Further settings are shown in the image below !
Then Audio Settings, see picture below !

--Now, picture settings --

In Picture settings window--
After the conversion completed, you can see your video in the desktop (or in the destination provided)

Transferring files
Connect your iPhone and start iTunes. Find the file you made above i.e from desktop and drag it onto your iPhone or import it into iPhone.

Thank you for your patience ! (Detailed Instructions with Video)
