Copy and paste is not what you want to do. You want Anydvd to copy the disk to the hard drive.

If you completed the install of Anydvd, you should see it in your system tray.

You may be able to copy to the disk on the router but I suspect it will take a long time.

Hook your usb drive to your computer, have Anydvd copy to your hard drive and them move the hard drive to the router usb port.

I’ve done that. I move the usb HDD back and forth between the pc and the router. What’s so frustrating is that the first disk of the ones that would not work with MakeMKV worked when I copied it using AnyDVD. So I copied the next six using Copy/Paste in WE, just like the first, and in the first test they don’t show up. Somehow VLC on the Shield doesn’t see them in the path in the router. It sees the first six that were done under MakeMKV and the first one done under AnyDVD. But not the last four. A.a.ar.g.h.!

I am confused.

I think if you use makemkv, you don't need Anydvd.

I think your best bet is to use Anydvd using "rip video disk to hard disk" option. VLC should then see the files within the folder you are pointing to as a disk and play the movie.

I thought you were using Kodi as your video player. You seem to be jumping all over the place.

You are right. That’s because I don’t know what I’m doing. This stuff I’m trying to do is for a computer specialist, which I’m not. When you are me things happen that aren’t supposed to. Like AnyDVD loading but not automatically putting the ripping tool in the system trey. When I drag it there from the AnyDVD folder it says it is AnyDVDtray.exe but doesn’t have the rip function in it and says it is AnyDVD.exe. Those are the things that happen when you are at the wrong skill level.

The same problem exist with Kodi. I could not find any function in it that would identify the router and the usb HDD. It may be there but I couldn’t find it.

I believe the problem is in one or two places. One is that the copied files don’t have the right file paths defined or secondly, their labels aren’t right. Maybe it’s because I’m trying to run the playback on a Shield and and not a pc. In any case, I don’t want to take any more of your time. Thanks for your help. I think I will eventually conquer it through continued trial and error.
