The 32 GB, Android 3.2 Honeycomb, Nvidia Tegra 2 processor (1GHz) powered tablet – Toshiba Thrive 7’’ is put on sale today for $ 429.99. The 16 GB will be started at $ 379.99. The Thrive has a gorgeous LED-backlit, 1280x800, multi-touch screen which makes it be a solid video playing device. In this article, I will explain how to put DVD movies to Toshiba Thrive tablet (Thrive 7’’ and Thrive 10’’ included) so that you can watch your DVD‘s on your Thrive on the go.



To use your Toshiba Thrive to watch a DVD, you need a DVD ripper/converter software to rip it, convert it to the Thrive playable video format (.mp4) and then transfer the MP4s to Thrive for viewing. There are a number of DVD ripper/converter software out there (5 best dvd ripper). Here I recommend the Aiseesoft Blu-ray ripper to accomplish for this. This program supports all the AACS protected Blu-ray and CSS protected DVD with fast ripping speed while making the highest quality. I have ever used it to rip a 2 hour DVD to my Toshiba Thrive 10’’, it cost about 1 hour. This is a very impressive ripping speed. Check out a full Aiseesoft Blu ray ripper review, or

A brief guide to rip/convert a DVD to Toshiba Thrive with Aiseesoft Blu-ray ripper:

Step 1 Load source files  


Open Aiseesoft Blu-ray ripper, insert a DVD to your computer drive, and then click the icon “Load DVD” to add the titles/chapters from DVD-Rom to this program. Additionally, if you want to rip a Blu-ray to Toshiba Thrive, just click the icon “Load Blu-ray” to load files after inserting a Blu-ray to your computer BD drive.



Step 2 Set output format


Click drop-down list of “Profile” to select “General video->HD MPEG-4(*mp4)” as output format. You’re allowed to reset the output parameters like video encoder, resolution, video bitrate, frame rate etc. to personalize the output video quality.


Step 3 Edit videos (Optional)


Click the icon “Edit” to open the editing panel where you can trim the move’s length, crop the movie’s black edges, change the video aspect ratios so that you can play DVD on your Toshiba Thrive in full screen and so on.



Step 4 Start the conversion


Click the “Convert” button to let the program start ripping/converting a DVD or Blu-ray to MP4s for your Thrive. After the conversion, click the “Open Folders” button to find the ripped DVD files and drag & drop them to Toshiba Thrive. That’s it.
