DVD to iPOD conversions

I’m using handbrake on a mac and I successfully convert dvd files or VIDEO_TS files into Mpeg-4 for use on an ipod. But movies in widescreen produce a zoomed in image (or anamorphic) on the ipod. is it possible to keep the aspect ratio of the movie on the ipod AND see it in widescreen (black bars and all) so as to have the most of the original picture on the screen?

If you want to get a full version, please set “Zoom” to “Full”. To keep the wide screen video output, please use “16:9” for “Aspect Ratio”. You should first highlight the chapter/title before modifying anything to get the settings into effect.
