    I have installed a film on my N7 (for when I,m on a flight etc.)..I put a DVD into my laptops DVD drive and copied it onto the HDD. I then connected the laptop to the N7 with a USB cable and copied the film to the N7.

    Does that work Ronald with a commercial DVD? I thought the DRM prevented that.

    chewbacole, I use DVDFab to rip my DVD's to .mp4 on my PC. They then copy over and play fine in MX Player on my N7.

    Freemake makes a video downloader and a video converter. It's easy to download YouTube videos with them.

    Hello "Mickey1",
    The DVD I was using was one I had recorded a few years ago on my DVD recorder. It had no protection on it. However; to get a conversion to MP4 I had to use a program called "Handbrake". I think you need a more elaborate convertor to deal with DVDs with Copy Protection on them.

    Good Evening "Micky1",
    The DVD I copied was one I had recorded from the TV onto a DVD recorder. Thus there was no protection on it. However; I did have to use "Handbrake" to convert to MP4.
