I am new to this media conversion stuff and have got a WD TV and WD My Cloud. I need to know how best to convert my DVDs onto this NAS in the best quality format so I can put the DVDs into storage. I have had a look around the web, but there just seem to be to many options, what’s the best – can anyone help? Thanks!
What is WD My Cloud?
WD My Cloud is a fast, easy-to-use NAS server for your home that includes an excellent personal cloud function. It has a USB 3.0 port for storage extension or backing up data.
Although WD My Cloud can support a wide range of format like MP4, MOV, AV, due to the reason of lacking BD/DVD drive, WD My Cloud can not meet the demands of put BD/DVD discs online. To achieve this goal, an easy-to-use BD/DVD Converter is the key.
Pavtube ByteCopy is such a wise choice for you to solve the problem.
