    Is it possible to connect a dvd player to a note 8 to read mp3 jpg and mp4 files from a CD or dvd?
    If so what is the process.

    Use an OTG adapter. (The DVD player has to be powered externally. If it's powered through the USB connector, the phone battery won't have enough power to keep it running very long.)

    Are you talking about a DVD player, or an external DVD-RW drive? They are two different animals.

    If the latter, then your DVD-RW drive needs to have a cable with two USB Type A connectors, one for power and one for data. Otherwise it won't work with your OTG.

    I would probably be easier (and quicker) to copy the files from the DVD/CD-R to your computer then from the computer to the phone.

    Update: I have an external Blu-ray RW drive. Its USB cable has two type A connectors, one for data, one for power. I plugged it in to a USB charger and into my OTG adapter. My Note 8 didn't recognize it.
