See the FAQ:


MakeMKV is my tool of choice these days. It's fast, cross-platform, and quality is the same as the original because it simply copies without recompression. No disc menus, though.

If I connect via USB instead, should ISO work?
Yes. You'll need a USB mass storage device with MBR partitioning. That limits you to 2TB maximum.

Don't know if this was just saying YES to the 95 reading USB hard drives, or to it reading/playing ISO files. ?????

I am trying to find a solution to getting my own DVDs onto a hard drive in a format that will:

a) be played by the 95 from a usb-attached hard drive
b) have the same quality as the original DVD
c) be one single file (I have succesfully played direct bit-for-bit DVD copies - ie folders of VOB and TS files, but with some concert DVDs this causes a pause in the middle of a song presumably as the 95 switches from one vob file to the next.

I own DVDFab 9, and VideoRedo Suite 4 so would obviously prefer a solution using these packages, but I have been told on other forums to get makemv and make a single mkv file.

Tried a join process on VideoRedo to simply "join" the vob files into one, but it didn't like the LPCM sound tracks (apparently wants only PCM tracks)

Tried the Merge function on DVDFab to see if it would "merge" the VOB files but after an hour, no result. Can either of these two pieces of software create a single mkv file that the Oppo 95 could play? Remux from VOB to M2TS???

Rentention of menu functions would be good, but not a deal-breaker. Main objective is a single file providing the original quality audio and video.

Comments, suggestions etc.
The best way is to convert the DVD to MKV format. You can use MakeMKV to do this. Note that it will only convert the file to MKV and not reduce the file size, so a 7GB DVD will be a 7GB MKV file. You can use Handbrake to reduce the size to about 2GB (or smaller but with noticeable compression artifacts). MakeMKV is worth the cost. It will convert a DVD in 10-15 minutes and retain your chapters. Blu-Rays take a LOT longer, about 60-80 minutes.

If you have a wifi network, you can rip all the movies to a "cloud" drive and access them across wifi to your player or TV. Note that for this to work via wifi, you need a high speed router and the signal strength over wifi must be >90% or else you will have buffering issues.

I was having dropouts, hangs and slow response on my Oppo and Sony BDP player, I thought that my files were too big but it was caused by poor wifi. Once I got the speed >90%, all my issues disappeared.

If it's not a BIG screen, it's not a theater...

Yes!!
This was the problem...
thanks, Bill!
