Re: installing digital copies on to playbook

You can copy it to either a MP4 or AVI file, the problem might be whether the video play app in the PB will read the past the DRM on the file which was on the original DVD. If not then you'll need to remove the DRM, just google it and you'll find both free and paid software to do that. To get it onto your PB just plug into your computer, the PB will show up as drive Z and copy the file to the videos folder. You can also use the Desktop Manager Software.

Re: installing digital copies on to playbook

i tried to google and find DRM removal programs but all I could find were once that cost about 45$. The onle free ones that I could find were all trial versons that left a water mark on the video. Do you know of any that are free?

I tried using amersoft and it worked well, although the "free version" will only convert 1 minute of video. The full verson runs about 40$. Do you know of a easy to use, totally free verson?

Thats the program I use as well, but I dont believe that it removes the DRM so I can only use it for some old DVD. Unless im doing something wrong?
