    Is there anyone who can help me put dvds on to a external hard drive or a usb flash card so as i can watch them on a tv.
    Ideally id like to put them on a large hard drive and have some sort of library holding 500 plus movies, without losing the picture quality.
    i have a dvd player with a standard usb input.
    Just need a step by step guide on how to do this from start to finish.
    Many thanks in advance

    most films are copyrighted protected and you cannot rip them onto a harddrive
    as you will be breaking the copyright protection on the DVD
    and varies from country to country - however, in UK I do not think this is legal to break the copyright protection

    a few discussions are here

    and an old bbc item

    so closing the post
