    Default Copy DVD movie to microSD?

    Is there a way to put a DVD movie onto the microSD card? I feel stupid for asking this question, I should know this.

    Once you've converted it on your computer, transfer to the phones card via USB cable.

    Step 1 Install ISO to AVI converter application for Mac or Windows, like HANDBRAKE.
    Step 2 Insert DVD or open ISO file in converter application.
    Step 3 set up converter application to save completed [converted] file in preferred format, and set destination for the completed file, like the DESKTOP.
    Step 4 copy saved movie file to SDcard.

    Step 1. Import DVD files to the top DVD Ripper for Tablet (HANDBRAKE or PAVTUBE is OK). You can load DVD Discs, DVD folders, ISO files or IFO files respectively.

    Step 2. Choose output profile.

    Step 3. Click "Convert" button to start converting DVD movies for transferring.

    Get converted files on computer and transfer to the microSD card via USB cable.

    Use the File manager to move it from your phone to the SDCard or Kies if you are moving the movie from your PC to your phone's SD Card.

    As in the above posts you need to convert the DVD into a readable file format first if you haven't done so already.

    Try Video Catalyst https://www.tools4movies.com/ for easy conversion to mp4 format, then simply copy to microSD card with a USB cable.

    Except you can't upload files to the SDCard with Airdroid due to the kitkat restriction.

    No you can't, not to the external sd card unless you are rooted and have a card fix loaded in kitkat 4.4.2 onwards

    You can't move apps to the SD card however you can store music, videos abs files on the SD card. I do this on my own S5 and Galaxy tab pro 10.1 which run kit kat. Neither are routed. The SD card is not completely useless. In fact the only thing I cant do is store app data to the SD card. Some apps can be moved but it's pointless as app data doesn't move across.

    mmm well i cant copy anything to the SD card using Airdroid, i have to copy it to the phone then use the file manager to move it to the SD card afterwards. I cant see how it would differentiate between filetypes, it either works or it doesnt.

    That's odd. I can put things straight onto the SD card, without storing on the phone first. However I do know what things can differ. For example on my phone if I want to delete a video file from the SD card I have to use the file manager. On my tab pro which runs the exact same version of kit kat I can delete the file directly in the player pro app. It's all a bit inconsistent.


    Can you download movies and TV shows purchased from the play store directly to your SD card or do you have to download it to the phone first and then transfer it across?

    You can if the app supports being stored on the SD card, same with app data. It's all up to the developers to support that feature. It's not a restriction set forth by Google.

    Not when your phone is hooked up to your PC through a USB connection, Google took away file structure browsing via a USB connection. You have to use a file manager, Samsung includes one with the Galaxy S5. Then you can copy, paste, move, and delete files on the SD card or even on the phone's internal storage. Content downloaded from the Google Play store (like movies and music) can all be stored on an SD card without issues. You just have to setup the Google Music app to store content on the SD card. You have to change the location to the SD card when downloading a movie as well.

    Yes. That's right. I just say you can't because the app data never seems to move across anymore!

    It has for me. Again, it's all app dependent.

    ??? I can copy files to the SDCard over USB just fine using Win7. I cannot do that using AIRDROID, over wifi, i have to copy the files to the phone instead, then move them to the SDCard with the file manager on the phone.

    As you say this is a restriction of the application. Developers cannot code their apps to save to the SDCard because you need root access! Most people dont root, therefore they dont develop for it or they will specifically say you will need root access to use our app.

    Not using the traditional file tree structure. It sees your phone as a media device so you are stuck "syncing" media over to specific folders, not just any folder. I was initially mistaken though, I thought you said Android and not Airdroid.

    Yes they can, apps can save to the SD card all they want. It's whether or not the developers program it this way is another issue. I have all sorts of apps on my phone (which isn't rooted) that can read and write content/files to the SD card. There's tons of them out there that all work with Android 4.4 as-is.

    Ah ok yes agreed.

    Well you say some apps can do it, but i'm yet to find one that used to work under Jellybean and was able to save to the external SD card (quickpic is a good example) which now works under Kitkat, so have you got another example that works on an unrooted device?
  22. #22

    Not with Jellybean but that never came pre-installed on the Galaxy S5, it only ever came with KitKat (4.4.2 is the lowest). The built-in Samsung camera app can save to the SD card, the Google camera app can save content to the SD card, Google Play Music can save to the SD card, the Google Play Movies can be saved to an SD card, I can copy files to and from my SD card using OneDrive, the YouTube downloader app I have can save directly to the SD card, every photo editing app I have can access photos on the SD card and save them there, and I can keep going on and on. Then I have a slew of apps that can actually be moved to the SD card too (American Airlines, eBay, Fly Delta, Google Goggles, Google Sky Map, Groupon, Handy Photo, Imgur, LocalCast, Netflix, Pandora, Papa John's, Perfectly Clear, and far too many others to list).

    Yes i know if you read what i said i was making a comparison of one app when it used to work on Jellybean compared to it not working now under Kitkat.

    Answer me this, for apps that used to work, again i'll use Quickpic as an example, how come the developers haven't updated them so that they can save to the SD Card under Kitkat?

    I swear, I'm not trying to sound sarcastic here so please don't take this negatively. To answer your question: I don't know, I'm not a developer. A lot of apps have been updated to fully support KitKat and we will likely see another round of updates once Android 5.0 becomes more common (plus apps will probably be adopting the flatter design of 5.0). I'm not sure what is wrong with the developers behind Quickpic but you should contact them to see when or even if their app will be updated. It's all dependent on the developers when it comes to features that they want to support along with updating with each release of Android. I wish there was an answer but there really isn't, not unless a developer of that app (or any app for that matter) steps in and makes a comment about updating features in apps.

    It seems like a bunch of developers haven't updated their apps for full 4.4.4 compatibility. Poweramp is one of them as it is extremely buggy under 4.4.4 but was fine with 4.4.3. Why aren't they pushing out an update to fix their multiple issues? I'm not sure.

    No not at all, i hear what you're saying but in Airdroid for example if you navigate to the SD Card it pops up with a specific message saying some functionality will be limited due to the Kitkat 4.4.2 restrictions, i.e. You can't save to it. To me this is saying its more a case that the developers can't do anything about it rather than why they haven't updated it to work. I mean why wouldn't they update it to work, it would be in their benefit to do so.
