Follow this article to learn how to copy DVD to SD card so that you can play DVD movies/series on your mobile phone and tablet easily. Before start, please download the necessary DVD ripper on your PC for preparation:

Q: Is it possible to copy and transfer DVD movies (protected and non-protected) to my SD card internally on my computer so that I can place the card in my son's tablet to view the DVD content offline?

A: Nowadays, storage space is no longer an issue because there are many large-capacity SD cards available. As we all know, most portable electronic devices can store and play video and audio files from a Micro SD card, which makes it a good idea to transfer the movie from a DVD to an SD card for playback on mobile devices. With a powerful DVD converter, you can realize that purpose easily. Let’s look at how to put DVD movies onto an SD card.

Must-have Tools for Transferring DVD to SD Card

1. SD Card Reader

An SD card reader can turn your SD card into a pen drive or USB flash drive so that you can transfer files between an SD card and a computer. Some mobile phones and tablets also have a built-in card reader, so you can directly connect devices to a PC using a USB cable. Your computer can recognize an SD card and prompt you to "Open the Folder to View Files".

2. DVD Ripping Software

The key to copying a DVD to a Micro SD card is to rip digital videos from the DVD. Since most DVDs are copy-protected, you need a professional DVD ripper like WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro to remove the copy protection first. Then, you can convert the DVD to digital and transfer the converted videos to an SD card.

With DVD Ripper Pro, you’ll have a lot of options to convert your DVDs, as it supports all mainstream output formats, including MP4, MKV, MPG, AVI, ISO, H264, H265, and more.

How to Rip DVD to Digital for SD Card?

Choose the DVD Drive Letter

Free downloadFree download WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro and install it on your PC.

Step 1. Add DVD Source

Insert a DVD disc into your computer's DVD ROM. Then, open WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro, click "DVD Disc", select the DVD drive letter, and click "OK" to load the DVD source. The software will quickly detect and analyze the DVD and choose the main title.

Choose MP4 under the Video tab

Step 2. Choose MP4 as the Output Format

Click the "Output Format" button on the right, go to the "Video" tab, and choose the "MP4" profile. (MP4 is an industry standard video format supported by almost all hardware and software.)

Tips: You're free to select any video format compatible with your device. There are 300+ configured presets available for your choice without extra settings.

Start the DVD Ripping Process

Step 3. Start Conversion

Click the "three dots" icon at the bottom of the interface to choose an output folder. Finally, press "Run" to begin the conversion. With GPU acceleration enabled, it can convert an entire movie at a super-fast speed.

Tips: You can select the SD card directory as the output folder. However, the conversion process may be slowed down or interrupted due to the extremely slow reading/writing speed of the SD card reader and the SD card itself. For best results, I recommend choosing a local path on your computer as the output folder and then transferring the converted movie to your SD card.

WonderFox doesn't advocate any illegal duplication and distribution. The laws vary in different countries on whether it's legal to rip movies from DVD for backup and personal use, even if you have purchased and owned it. Please refer to the DVD copyright laws in your country before ripping a copy-protected DVD.

How to Put Movies onto an SD Card?

Step 1. Insert the SD card into the card reader.

Step 2. On your computer, open the folder that contains the DVD movies.

Step 3. Select these movie files you want to copy and right-click to choose the “Copy” option. (You can also use hotkeys “Ctrl + C” on Windows or “Command + C” on Mac.)

Step 4. Open the SD card drive (in “My Computer” on Windows or “Finder” on Mac).

Step 5. Right-click inside the SD card drive and choose the “Paste” option. (“Ctrl + V” on Windows or “Command + V” on Mac)

Step 6. Now, you have copied the DVD movies to your SD/microSD card. Safely eject it from your computer. You can insert the SD card into any device you want to watch movies.

At last
