Purchased a new 2T hard drive and hoping to put my ever expanding, out of control DVD movies on the external hard drive. Need some ideas/help with the following:
I have about 500+ DVD movies in the DVD format of VIDEO_TS, and AUDIO_TS folders, also a goodly assortment of AVI type file format video. What I would like to do, is move the DVD's to the external hard drive and hopefully come up with a way to play on the Television directly from the external hard drive. It looks like an organizational nightmare. Would I generate folders Alphabetic ( Folder A, B, C, etc. ) and then move each movie DVD into the correct folder, etc.? Is there a better way? How would I print a searchable data file of the contents? My Samsung TV has an external USB port, is there some program, etc. to do all of this. Just have so much space tied up with the DVD's ....time to shrink all of this down.
Welcoming some thoughts, direction, etc. before I begin the task.
