    The resolution of the droid is no better than DVD so not sure what the benefit would be... Or are you talking about trying to get the digital copy that's included on some blu-rays for your mobile device?

    You would need to rip and convert the blu-ray and save the file to your computer using any application that could rip a blu-ray disc. Also, you would need a blu-ray optical drive that can rip blu-ray discs.

    not sure how to, you also run into the issue of file size. 'In very general terms most commercial BD-ROM disks with just the MOVIE ONLY are approximately 17gb to 27gb' -not my quote but probably accurate. and with only 16gigs to play with until they bring out the 32gig cards don't see it happening. you may be able to convert the file type or compress it somehow but i have no idea how to.

    Reading it doesn't necessarily mean it can rip the disc. You need a blu-ray optical drive that just doesn't read it. Also, you need to search for an application that can rip/convert blu-ray discs. You can probably just google to find such an application.

    He'll be able to put the ripped files in his computer if he has the storage capacity and once he converts it into an mp4 file, he'll be able to transfer it to his Droid, but it will still be a larger file.

    I imagine you could, but that just seems more complicated than just simply ripping the blu-ray disc, converting it to mp4, and transferring it to your Droid.
