A buddy of mine has a external 1TB hard drive linked up to his playstation 3. When he loads the PS3 he is able to access all of his films from his hard drive and play them through the PS3. I want to do the same but not with a PS3. Can anyone recommend any good solutions for backing up all of my 400 DVD's in an electronic format and playing them through my DVD/BluRay Player. I don't want to have to convert all my DVD's to AVI or MPEG files etc... I'd like to keep the DVD's in the native file format. I have seen media players and things but I am not too sure how they work, I have read up on them and some reviews but I am still unsure if they are what I need for what I want to acheive. I would really appreciate some sound advice. Many THanks, Brett.
