If the PS4 is connected to the Internet, go to the function screen, select "Settings" -> "System Software Update", and update to the latest system software 1.50. In case the PS4 has no Internet connection for the time being, users can also use an external disc or USB storage to update the console system.

Until now, there are many issues of playing Blu-ray/DVD on PS4 from PlayStation4 Support. Maybe do some audio video setting could be on the cards to make BD/DVD playable on the Sony's new game console. But the complexity might be a lot more irritating.

Take note that it will output forced subtitles only if it is checked. And you can choose the desired subtitle and audio tracks in the "Subtitle" and "Audio" drop list.

Step 2. Choose output format for PS4.

Now just copy and dump the converted video to PS4 via USB for convenient playback via PS4.


If you simply want to back up Blu-ray to external hard drive, here are two solutions:

1. Click the "Copy the entire disc" icon on the top to output 1:1 Blu-ray/DVD file exactly the same as original.

2. Select "Copy>Directly Copy" in format list to output an intact m2ts file of the main title.

How to effectively rip & convert DVD ISO/IFO files to Galaxy TabPro 10.1 for playback?

How do I watch DVD ISO/IFO images on Galaxy TabPro 10.1 freely? This article is mainly talking about how to backup DVD ISO/IFO files onto Galaxy TabPro 10.1 for enjoying.

Finally you have this, the Tab Pro 10.1 (irritatingly written as TabPRO offically), which shares the Note's 2,560x1,600 screen and eight-core processor, but takes away the stylus and over £100 from the price. With the new Samsung Galaxy TabPro 10.1 on hand, you may want to put your DVD ISO/IFO files onto this tablet for watching.

Here is the situation:

Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 provides a lovely high-resolution screen, so I plan to buy one this week. As I backed all my DVD collections to local computer in ISO, IFO images already, and I wanna move DVD ISO/IFO from my home computer to Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1. Could you help me out so my kids can watch cartoons and movies when we are away on holiday?

To solve the problem, you have to at first accept the fact that you can't direcly transfer DVD ISO/IFO image file to Galaxy TabPro 10.1. You will see, Galaxy TabPro 10.1 only support some certain file formats, such as MP4. For many other files, say DVD ISO/IFO files, you need to convert them to Galaxy TabPro 10.1 compatible videos. The following is how to make it.

In order to achieve this, you're gonna need the help of a professional program – Pavtube DVDAid, this software is powerful in ripping DVD including commercial DVD with protections like BD+, region code. What’s more, you do not need to worry about the ripping and converting speed. It is excellent for it and it supports CUDA acceleration technology, which will provide you 6 x faster speeds. Apart from it, it will provide the high quality output files for Galaxy TabPro 10.1 and many other videos formats.

Go to get it to convert DVD ISO/IFO to Galaxy TabPro 10.1 supported MP4 format for enjoying. If you are a Mac user, please turn to Pavtube DVDAid for Mac.

Note: If you still have a variety of Blu-ray movies waiting for transferring to Galaxy TabPro 10.1 for playback, you’d better turn to Pavtube BDMagic and BDMagic for Mac. It can rip and convert both DVD and blu-ray disc.

How to convert DVD ISO/IFO files to Galaxy TabPro 10.1?

1. Load DVD ISO/IFO image file.

Click “Load ISO/IFO” or “Load from folder”. It will only take few seconds for ripping and importing DVD ISO/IFO files and you will be kept informed of timely state with a progress dialogue box. When it has been imported successfully, you can preview the whole movie and select the subtitle and audio you want.

Click “Format” menu to find the “Samsung” option in the dropdown list, choose “Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1(*.mp4)” for output which also fits for Galaxy TabPro 10.1 playback.

3. Customize video/audio parameters. (Optional)

Click “Settings” to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. According to my experience, the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa.

4. Convert DVD ISO/IFO image file to Galaxy TabPro 10.1 MP4.

You can “Browse” your computer to choose a new folder for output file before conversion. When everything is ready, click “Convert” button to start converting DVD ISO/IFO image file to MP4 Galaxy TabPro 10.1, then “Open” button will show you the location of output files.
