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.

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.

Click “Load ISO/IFO” or “Load from folder”.

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.

The answer is "No". Don't worry about this. This guide will show you two ways to import and edit World Cup XAVC recordings in FCP X on Mac.

Sony has introduced XAVC Apple FCP X plugin for FCP X along with the Sony utility. This plugin allows you to use the log and transfer fuction to edit 4K, 2K and HD videos captured with XAVC camcorders. Start editing 2014 FIFA World Cup XAVC video immediately upon import into Final Cut Pro X, without converting!

Sony Plugin for XAVC in Final Cut Pro X (FCP-X) 

Note: This plug-in requires:- Final Cut Pro X 10.0.8 or higher for XAVC format

If your Final Cut Pro version is lower than 10.0.8, you will can't use this plugin. Install, run, log, transfer... This is a long and painful process. And you can't edit World Cup XAVC files in FCP natively. I think this way isn't good for you.

To accomplish your goal, here is an easier way to convert XAVC to prores codec—the most compatible video codec for FCP using Pavtube iMedia Converter for Mac, which is a great World Cup Video Converter for Mac. It can not only convert World Cup XAVC footage to Apple ProRes codec, but also guarantee smooth editing. Compatible OS: Mac OS X like Tiger, Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion 10.8 and Mavericks 10.9. 

Now get it installed and let's work it out.

Step 1: Click  "Add Video" icon to load your XAVC video to World Cup Video Converter for Mac.

Step 2: Choose Apple ProRes 422 codec for Final Cut Pro 6/7/X. 

Click the "Format" option, and move mouse cursor to Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422(*.mov) as output format. 


To get 1080 videos, we need to click the "Settings" button and choose 1920*1080 as output video resolution.

The Fédération Internationale de Football Association’s (FIFA) World Cup is a football (soccer) tournament held every 4 years with teams competing from all over the world. The 2014 World Cup is scheduled from June 12 through July 13, 2014 and will be located in twelve cities across Brazil.

If you plan to travel to Brazil for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, follow the recommendations below to help you stay safe and healthy.What can travelers do to protect themselves?Before your trip:

Schedule a health appointment at least 4–6 weeks before you depart on your trip. Talk to your doctor or nurse about vaccines and medicines recommended for Brazil. See the Find a Clinic webpage for help in finding a travel medicine clinic near you.

CDC recommends all travelers be up-to-date on routine vaccines, including measles-mumps-rubella (MMR), diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis, varicella (chickenpox), polio, and flu.
Other recommended vaccines may include hepatitis A, typhoid, hepatitis B, yellow fever, and rabies.

Medicine for malaria and travelers’ diarrhea may be recommended.

Consider purchasing travel health and medical evacuation insurance.

Pack a travel health kit.

Monitor travel warnings and alerts and read travel tips from the US Department of State.

Enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP).

Leave a copy of your itinerary, contact information, credit cards, and passport with someone at home.

During your trip:

Follow security and safety guidelines. US travelers may be targets for criminals during mass gatherings.

If possible, don't travel at night, avoid questionable areas, and travel with a companion.

If you drink alcohol, do it in moderation. Drunk people are more likely to hurt themselves or other people, engage in risky sex, or get arrested.

Carry a photocopy of your passport and entry stamp; leave the actual passport securely in your hotel.

Carry the contact information for the nearest US embassy or consulate in Brazil, and local emergency service numbers: 190 (police), 192 (ambulance), and 193 (fire department). Note that these local emergency phone numbers are available in Portuguese only.

Follow all local laws and social customs.

Do not wear expensive clothing or jewelry.

Always keep hotel doors locked, and store valuables in secure areas.

If possible, choose hotel rooms on the 2nd through the 6th floors. A room on the 1st floor of a hotel may provide easier access for criminals. Rooms on the 7th floor and above may be difficult to escape in the event of a fire.

Follow food and water safety guidelines: Eating contaminated food and drinking contaminated water can cause illnesses such as hepatitis A, typhoid fever, and travelers’ diarrhea. Read about how to prevent these diseases by visiting the Safe Food and Waterpage. Beware of food from street vendors, ice in drinks, and other foods and drinks that may be contaminated and cause travelers’ diarrhea.

Prevent mosquito bites and use insect repellent: Diseases spread by mosquitoes, such as malaria, dengue, and yellow fever are common throughout Brazil. Read more about ways to prevent bug bites by visiting the Avoid Bug Bites page. You may also need to take prescription medicine to protect against malaria or get a vaccine against yellow fever. Talk to your doctor or nurse about prevention steps that are right for you.

Follow guidelines for hot climates: Dehydration and heat-related illnesses are common during sporting events. Drink plenty of (bottled!) water, keep cool, and wear sunscreen. Read more about how to prevent these conditions by visiting the Travel to Hot Climates and Sun Exposure pages.

Avoid swimming in fresh water—lakes and rivers. Schistosomiasis is a parasitic infection that can be spread in fresh water that may cause serious health problems.

Reduce your risk of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs): While celebrating, people may encourage travelers to engage in risky sex, especially if alcohol or drugs are involved. Carry condoms that were purchased from a reliable source. Read more about how to prevent these conditions by visiting the Traveler STD page.

Choose safe transportation: Motor vehicle crashes are the #1 killer of healthy US citizens in foreign countries. 
Reduce your exposure to germs: Wash your hands often, and avoid contact with people who are sick.

If you feel sick during your trip—

Talk to a doctor or nurse if you feel seriously ill, especially if you have a fever.

For more information about medical care abroad, see Getting Health Care Abroad and a list of International Joint Commission-accredited facilities.

If you don't speak Portuguese and require assistance with a health issue, see our list of common Portuguese health terms and phrases.

Avoid contact with other people while you are sick.

After your trip:

If you are not feeling well after your trip, you may need to see a doctor. If you need help finding a travel medicine specialist, see Find a Clinic. Be sure to tell your doctor about your travel, including where you went and what you did on your trip. Also tell your doctor if you were bitten or scratched by an animal while traveling.

If your doctor prescribed antimalarial medicine for your trip, keep taking the rest of your pills after you return home. If you stop taking your medicine too soon, you could still get sick.
Malaria is always a serious disease and may be deadly.
If you become ill with a fever either while traveling in a malaria-risk area or after you return home (for up to 1 year), you should seek immediate medical attention and should tell the doctor about your travel history.

Five Highest Grossing Movies of 2014, Enjoy a Wonderful Movie Summer

The summer season is always an exciting one at the box office, as a whole host of blockbusters will to battle to reign supreme. However, which of summer 2014's blockbusters is set to be the most successful?

Now start to enjoy a Wonderful Movie Summer! You can just image you was found on the ground by the fountain about a fields of a summer stride, lying in the sun, while someone you love was found on the ground beside you, laying by a fountain filled by the summer asleep, in front of you is golden sunshine, summer breeze dabbing you face, you two are immersed in the newest 2013 summer movie, sweet, relax, warm as well as tranquility.

- The Amazing Spider Man 2 (out now)

The Amazing Spider Man 2 has been on general release for a couple of weeks, and while it received a mix response from the critics, it has been bringing in the dough.

In the U.S., the film took a whopping $92 million in its opening weekend: which is $30 million more that the first movie back in 2012.

Not surprisingly, it claimed the #1 spot at the U.S. and UK box office: it took just over £9 million in its opening weekend.

So far, the movie has grossed in excess of $637 million, and is the second highest grossing film of 2014 so far: Captain America: The Winter Soldier is leading the way with $704 million.

At the moment, The Amazing Spider Man 2 is in a great position to come out on top by the end of the summer.

- Godzilla (out now)

Godzilla is another film that we have already been treated to at the beginning of this blockbusters season: and it is a film that is already performing well.

Godzilla posted an impressive opening weekend gross, as it took $93.2 million in the U.S.

It outperformed The Amazing Spider 2 in its first weekend, but failed to surpass the $96.2 opening weekend total posted by Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

In a week, Godzilla has topped the U.S. and UK box office and grossed in excess of $216 million. It is already the tenth highest grossing movie of 2014.

It really is not hard to see why a sequel is already being planned.

- X-Men: Days of Future Past (out now)

X-Men: Days of Future Past is one of the most anticipated films of 2014, and it has hit the big screen this week.

The film opening in the UK at midnight on Wednesday (21st) and in the U.S yesterday (23rd).

The critics are already raving about the film - which sees Bryan Singer return to the director's chair.

It could be the first film of the summer to break the $100 million barrier for an opening weekend in the U.S.

X-Men: The Last Stand broke Memorial Day weekend records when it was released back in 2006, as it took over $102 million.

X-Men: First Class opening with $55 million in 2011. If these two totals combined, it could take a massive amount of money this weekend.

- Maleficent (released 28th May)

Over the last couple of years, we have seen female fronted films/franchises perform well at the box office: Gravity, The Hunger Games, Prometheus & The Heat were all huge successes.

This summer we see Angelina Jolie return to the big screen as she takes on the title role in the new Disney film.

It has been a little hit and miss for Disney's live action films in recent years: John Carter was a bit of a disaster, while the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film performed very well.

Maleficent has a reported budget of $180 million, and Disney has really pushed this film in recent weeks.

While it is unlikely that Maleficent will post huge opening weekend totals, it is going to be interesting to see how this film performs.


- How To Train Your Dragon 2 (released 27th June)

No summer is complete without an animation movie, and How To Train Your Dragon 2 is the film not to miss in 2014.

How To Train Your Dragon 2 is the latest offering from DreamWorks, and comes four years after the success of the first.

How To Train Your Dragon grossed over $494 million by the end of its theatrical run: it ended 2010 as the tenth highest grossing movie the year.

I expect How To Train Your Dragon 2 is perform even better. Can it beat it's predecessor's opening weekend haul of $43.7 million?

Other movies to watch out for include Guardians of the Galaxy, Edge of Tomorrow, The Expendables 3 & Jupiter Ascending.

However, I am going to nail my colours to the mask and say X-Men:Days of Future Past will be the highest grossing movie of the summer!!
