Anyone know how you can put a DVD onto a tablet?

ripoffh8erripoffh8er

Morning everyone. We got our son an Android Tablet for christmas and he also got the New Ice age 4 DVD, Is there a way of putting a copy of the DVD onto the tablet.

I have had a look at DVD shrink and Handbrake but they end up with a group of files and I dont know what to do with them, I was expecting to end up with one file that you then transfer over. Too much to expect I suppose!

I'm sure you'll have gathered that I'm not very techy, any advice or suggestions from others that have acheived dvd transfer successfully would be much appreciated.

I dont mind paying for a program if it works and is easy to use but obviously free would be better!

    There should be a slot on the side ;)

    Use MakeMKV (freeware, can extract the main movie at native file size ~3GB) and then handbrake to reduce the file size should you wish. Use DICE player on Android to play - has never failed for me!

    AutoGK to decode the DVD to a decent filesize .avi then port across.

    Download a torrent, transfer it to tablet.Ripping DVDs is about as much fun as plucking your bum hair.

    Does ice age come with the new ultraviolet code so you can watch it on tablets?

    Use handbrake, free software and very fast.

    could it be done using cloud storage? by burning the dvd to a pc, uploading it to the cloud then downloading onto the tablet. just an idea..

    I just downloaded DVD Catalyst 4 to convert movies to play on my sons Innotab 2, you may be able to find something to help you there.

    use a dvd rip program and then move the file from the pc to the tablet.

    Not really a viable one, though - uploading and then downloading 8gb dvd to the cloud and back will take a whole day. Far better just to use dvd shrink and handbrake, but actually follow guide so that it works, and copy from one to the other directly.

    Handbrake should leave you with one file. That is the easiest route, and it is also free.

    Or just torrent the film, keep the receipt and leave it at that lol.

    Makemkv is quick and easy, but does produce pretty big files.

    A DVD through handbrake on normal settings renders around 1-1.5 GB - Not too bad, but it can be reduced.

    If it is copy protected then you need software to bypass that. I don't use DVDs so not sure of the next move. Someone will know in a few mins probably.

    it's the kids Disney DVD's i'm trying so they will be copyrighted, hopefully someone can tell me what software i need to bypass it.

    I am trying MakeMKV at the moment but getting another error about operation failing so i am retrying with a bigger "read retry count" it's new discs so i know they're not damaged
