Why Can’t You Copy DVDs to NAS Normally?

As a DVD collection owner, you will choose to rip DVD movies for more convenient playback. And if you have a NAS device, you probably would like to copy DVD collection to NAS drive to allow you to view via streamers. But How can I copy my DVDs to my NAS server?

Umm, set up samba and mount it is a network mapped drive in whatever OS you use? That's typically what a NAS does.

use a DVD ripper to convert to ISO, and must be copied & stored in any NAS.

I Use DVDFab on my desktopPC, but someone suggest to use handbrake or ffmpeg

I use DVDFab and sometimes now redfox as anydvd is gone and hanbrake on my one desktop-PC
DVDFab is a must with nvidia card as you have to rip to HEVC and want to speed up the process.

What is the difference between DVDFab and Handbrake or ffmpeg?

Extra memory so I can host a couple VMs

it is a generational thing.
DVD players were designed in the computer dark ages,
when it was a struggle to squeeze out that much real time data.
hence the "movie" was broken in to chapters played in sequence
I finally found a [not zone 1] BLUE DISK of my daughters favorite childhood movie
played back with zone agnostic software and captured to a single 4K mpg4 file 6,980,141 KB
32 bit boxes of the day did not handle files that large. thus; as a single file.....
you can not get there from a DVD here! [in a "normal" copy operation]

my ZFS XigmaNAS stores & streams the 6 Gb file just fine and
my i7 computer with win-10 and VLC runs the show just fine as well.

what I am saying above is there is no easy file copy for the whole optical disk
one needs a ripper or high rez capture because of the nature of DVD/Blue disk DATA configuration.

the reverse is also a problem. I had converted [with limited copy right authority from the producer]
a 1982 35mm 3 minute short film to 4K mpeg4 the file. 687,223 Kb and I can put it on a regular CD BUT...
it can NOT be played from the CD as the whole CD format is not designed to handle data at that rate.
One can copy it from the CD to other media [USB stick or HDD] and it will play

the 6Gb feature length movie file won't even fit on a DVD because it was captured
from the Video card HDMI port at a higher resolution & frame rate than the original material [35mm]
I am not sure how big the blue disk files are, but I assume higher rez than the 35mm

in summary
optical drive formats were bleeding edge in their day with expected compromises
blue disks may be under a USD in 50 lots but... still slow.
all obsolete with big/fast/cheap microSD https://www.ebay.com/i/113530850734?chn=ps
easier to snail mail too.
