Why We Need to Rip DVD to USB Flash Drive (Type C/3.1)

The majority rips DVD to USB flash drive principally 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.

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 a DVD drive or with a damaged one without trouble. USB storage capacities have risen dramatically while prices have dropped sharply. We can easily get a USB flash drive with up to 256GB, and even 512GB and 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.
