Ok, I'm not going to be trying to copy bought films! We have a pile of dvd's from the last 15 years of children growing up and holidays etc.

What I would like to do is store them on a hard drive and have them "accessible" to our smart TV. This has a USB port, spare hdmi and a network connection.

Not sure how to do this so suggestions please.

Thanks

Maybe copy them to disc as an exact image, possibly a .iso file I think.
Try it and see, unless someone comes up with a definitive answer.

A brief update:

So I've concluded that the DVD we have "creates" files with a .VOB extension

I have shareware that claims to convert .VOB files to .MP4 files

I have an external USB drive which I can plug into the Sony TV

The Sony TV information claims it can "play" .MP4 files from a USB drive


so my next step is to convert a file to MP4, load it onto my external drive and plug it into the TV and see what happens next.

Thanks for the imput so far, its appreciated!
