Just a though, for videos and movies of not very giant size I could probably use a simple flash card, which will not be the fastest, but it’s cheap and easy to carry. People are inevitably in need to rip DVD for storing onto a portable flash drive.

Plus, which format you use for copying to a flash card depends largely on the flash card’s storage capacity. Most feature-length videos can be compressed to MP4s or AVIs to fit on a standard 1GB flash card. MP4 videos are smaller, more compressed files than AVIs, which may be more useful for storing on smaller flash card. Please note that converting video from DVD may result in a loss of audio/video quality, based on compression standards.

To complete the process, you need at first install a DVD-ripping program such as DVDAid, FormatFactory or Freemake Video Converter. Such programs enable you to rip the disk to a variety of popular video formats, including MP4, MPEG, WMV and AVI. After you rip the DVD, use Windows Explorer to transfer the file to a flash drive.

Using Pavtube DVDAid

Step 1: Insert DVD and Add Movie
