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.

To complete the process, you need at first install a DVD-ripping program such as DVDAid, FormatFactory or Freemake Video Converter.
