I bought my SMP last Friday. I am ok with computers however my husband is “challenged”. :smiley: My goal is to have a simple device that even he can use without a ton of instructions.
We have a lot of DVDs and Blu-ray discs, movies and TV series. I have purchased a 3TB external hard drive which I will connect to the SMP via USB.
My first project is to convert my DVD library to digital and save to the new hard drive. I’ve begun the process using DVDFab and I’m saving the movies as .ISO files.
I’ve done a lot of reading here – trying to find the right direction to move in. I’ve seen a lot of posts on Themes, Thumbgen, Moviesheets, Linksheets, Tricklesheets etc. They all make my head spin.
After I ripped 3 movies I plugged the HDD into the SMP to make sure that it was recognized and if I could “see” the movies. It worked!
I guess what I want to know is:
1) My hard drive has the following folders on it: .wd_tv and FullDisc. Where do I save the .iso files? Is it in one of those folders or should I be making a new one called “movies”?
2) Is .iso the best way to save TV shows?
- What folder should I save TV shows in?
4) Do I need a theme or is that more to “make it pretty”?
Any help is greatly appreciated!!
