Hi I've got a lot of dvds that take up a lot of room so want to put them all on to an external hard drive. I've watched a couple of you tube vids with no joy and tried drag and drop and it didnt work. I probably haven't given it my full attention but now I just want a simple solution to my problem to get it done.
HELP! Please.

Thank liz

If they're not copy protected ... VLC is freeware

Rip to mp4, then you can watch them from your computer ...
or from a USB flash to a smart TV.

You can also copy the DVD to an iso file ...
Then you can make a new DVD from the iso ... or watch the iso with VLC.
I'd use Imgburn to make the iso

I think quite a few of them are protected. All I want to do is put them on to my external hard drive so I can then watch them on my TV or laptop

I know ... DVDs are obsolete nowadays ... Flash, USB and even YouTube is much better.
Convenience and resolution for the big screen

But it's illegal to copy/convert protected DVDs ...
And we cannot help with illegal activities here at TSG
Sorry
