    Hi! I looked all over the web and I couldn't find a good answer to my question.
    My question: How can I put an ISO file (1 dvd movie) to my flash disk in order to my dvd player (witch has an USB input) to play the movie as if it's a genuine movie DVD?

    I just copied Audio_TS and Video_TS onto flash drive but the DVD player doesn't recognize as movie DVD.

    eddie5659, does it really matter? Maybe next time you can ask me some good questions or come up with a solution 4 this.
    P.S. I'm a tech guy myself but I just don't know how to do this or if it's even possible.

    Well, yes it does matter where it comes from as if it comes from torrent/p2p sites, we cannot help on these as the rules state:

    We tend to ask the question, just to make sure that no rules are broken. If its from a home movie etc, then I'll grab someone who may have the solution.

    You can't. Most USB ports look for MP3 and JPEG, sometimes AVI and WMV -- that's it. Not ISO.
    Burn a disc.

    I think i solved this issue: a flash drive has FAT 32 file system and a DVD has UDF file system. Right now I think there is no software that does this conversion between file systems like those.

    Some media players understand .ISO and will play it...has to be a device which is compatible like that, and that's going to be hit and miss, I would think mostly miss because who is putting together DVD ISOs any more?...Well, besides you.:D

    Most things are going to be streamed from the Internet or from local video file recordings.

    That is not possible. The file system is irrelevant, anyway, to the problem.

    If it is a copyrighted DVD, we can not help you.

    I think how about uncompress your iso file with WinRAR to your flash driver, maybe your DVD Player can recognize it.

    No.
    There's nothing to "convert" here -- it's just difference in how the data is stored to disk/disc.
    Read this quick primer on ISO: Why ISO?
    It covers the file system differences, and a number of other things.

    Ok...thanks all for answering. The story is this: I have created a movie show of some personal pics with certain software. I chose to save as DVD. I made an .iso image of that movie on my HDD. Some other friend of mine wants a copy of my DVD but he doesn't know computers as you guys do. Well...he asked me if he can give me his thumb drive so I can put the movie inside and he is going to watch at home on his DVD player.
    I was wondering if there is any way of making a copy of the DVD without burning a DVD (more like "burning a thumb drive" - if you get my point = like burning the .iso image on a DVD -> the DVD Player will recognize as normal DVD movie ).

    ...until now nobody gave me a straight answer...but thank you anyway :confused:

    Yes it would work if your friends DVDPlayer had a USB input AND recognized .ISO files on that USB input channel. I have a media player that does just that but my USB DVD/DIVX player is more limited.

    That actually depends on your DVD player. Most players does not recognize .iso files on your flashdisk. You may have to rip it first with DVD ripping tools. But if your player can recognize .iso files, yes you can play it. I guess it would be better for you to rip your files and make more copies of it. You can fine DVD ripping tools here: http://www.easydvdburning.com/software/pc-dvd-ripping/
    They are quite expensive but they provide quality.
