    With the 128gb micro sd support on this, I am hoping I can dump some dvd files via dvd-shrink onto my sd card and play them on my phone. Any players that can read and play dvd files off a hard drive like powerdvd on my pc? thanks

    Why not convert to mp4 for phone playback?

    Can you keep all of the DVD type options like the menus and screen select etc? Kind of wanted it to feel like a dvd. Since I don't put music on my phone, I figured with that much extra space, it wouldn't matter and I could play them like dvds.

    No, it won't feel like a DVD. You can rip the special features. Everyone has an opinion on file size for mp4. I aim for 1.3 GB. These files will look good on a phone or tablet.

    Ok, tried converting one to an mp4 and putting on my current card. Works fine and that 1.3 gb's takes a while. Going to stay away from the 4gb dvd files, lol. Thanks for the advice! appreciated!!
