Question: I have been trying to connect my DVD player, cable box and Samsung Smart TV. The box and TV are already connected via HDMI cable, but the DVD doesn’t have that output – it’s an old one. My question is, how to make backups of my own DVD movies without quality loss so I can play them via wifi from my hard drive as my TV’s DVD player needs replacing.
Answer: You need a DVD to Smart TV Converter (DVDAid is recommended here, see reasons to choose DVDAid) to backup DVD movies on hard drive first which is a perfect solution to prevent your DVD collection from damaging and being unable to rip and backup to HD, and then stream DVD movies to Samsung Smart TV via WiFi. Here is a brief guide of streaming DVD to Samsung Smart TV wirelessly.
