"I have a number of DVDs I purchased of old TV series that I want to convert to .avi files to go on a USB drive to play on my Android tablet and TV."
"I found your software by recommendation. My company evaluates used boats and we record the boat by DVD but now we would like to convert the DVD to a USB Flash Drive for our clients."
Ripping DVD to USB flash drive principally is for facilitating DVD content playback and management. Nowadays, a large number of computers come without DVD drives, thus making users fail to play DVD disc directly. It is also one of the reasons why Microsoft drops built-in DVD playback capability in Windows 10. In addition, even if someone owns a computer with a DVD drive, he/she may be still unwilling to carry fragile and space-consuming DVD discs around.
Lifehacker.com suggested investing in a Flash Drive that will likely do a much better job of storing that data for us. Fortunately, a computer is always equipped with several USB ports. If you have already transferred DVD to USB drive, you can play DVD content on a computer without DVD drive or with a damaged one troublelessly. Since USB storage capacities have risen dramatically while prices have dropped sharply, we can easily get a USB flash drive with up to 256GB, 512GB and even 1TB at an affordable price. Hence, we can transfer a great many of DVD movies to solid USB thumb drives, saving a huge amount of cubic room in our house and taking movie collections with us.
Home-made and encrypted DVD movies can be ripped and saved into USB drive using free and cleanWinX DVD Ripper. After the USB is connected to a device, those videos can be played and used.
