Anyone here rip movies to a flash drive?  I am wondering how well this works considering many blue ray players have the option of reading media this way.  Just looking to get a few of my favorites onto a smaller source for traveling and such rather than carrying a case of discs around.

What ripping software has worked, and what format have you found to work well?

If you are looking to rip them in 1080p format then the MKV. format has worked well for me. An average rip in 1080p is around 20 GBs so you need a large memory stick but 128 GBs sticks are cheap now. This is the software I use, check it out.

I like it so much that I actually paid for it after using it for several weeks so I could get the updates.

So I tried this one out, and while it seems easy to use, I'm not sure what to do after its converted the movie.  It wants to open in windows movie maker and I have no idea how to proceed.  I even tried the online help and it pretty much didn't go into anything further than where I am.

MakeMKV to rip the files, then Handbrake to re-encode or downsample. I play them on a Western Digital box connected to the TV, but there are a dozen ways to play them as long as you have the right codecs available.
