Help with external hard drive and movies
I've got a couple of questions ...
Is it possible to rip movies onto an SD card?
Whether I can rip the movies to an SD card or if I have to use an external hard drive, is there a way to watch those movies on this tablet? Does the media player that comes with this tablet play movies?
Thank you for your help![B][I][FONT="Georgia"][SIZE="3"][COLOR="DarkSlateGray"]~Janet~[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][/I][/B]

Re: Help with external hard drive and movies
As long as your SD card plugs into your computer somehow (either with a USB adapter or directly into a slot) you can rip movies onto an SD card. I generally rip/convert to mp4 on my laptop, then transfer the file to an SD card. I use DVD Catalyst software -- it's inexpensive and dead simple, and it has built in settings for the Excite.
Yes, you can watch movies from an SD card -- try MX Player, it will play pretty much anything you throw at it as long as it's not DRM'd.
