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
http://forums.techguy.org/multimedia/361172-legal-rip-dvds-i-own.html
and an old bbc item

so closing the post

see the rules here
http://www.techguy.org/rules.html
Circumventing Copy Protection / Copyright Infringement - While we believe it's reasonable to make backup copies of CDs and DVDs that you own, a lot of people break copy protection for the wrong reasons. The law is still vague as to whether or not it's legal to break copy protection in order to make such a backup, even for personal use. (The DMCA, for example, seems to make it illegal). If we can find a nice way to draw the line, we may reconsider this in the future as laws get sorted out. As a result, we do not allow discussion on how to break copy protection or use emulation software at this time.
