Free Download and Install the App

Insert your DVD disc into your computer’s DVD-Rom, start up Run DVD to Surface Converter and Click the “Load DVD” button to choose and import DVD movies.

You can also convert DVD without the disc, using ISO files, or DVD Folder. After the DVD files are loaded, you can preview them on the right viewing window and take snapshots of your favorite movie scene.

Step 2. Highlight the movie title you want to rip, and then you can click the dropdown menu after “Subtitles” and “Audio” respectively to select your wanted subs and audio track to be preserved in the resulted MP4 files.

Step 3. Select best output format for your Surface RT.

Move to “Format” menu, there are numerous profiles for different devices. To select an appropriate profile for Microsoft Surface, you can follow “Windows > Microsoft Surface Windows RT H.264 Video (*.mp4)”. The output videos is encoded in 16:9, which fits Surface RT tablet just right.

Step 4. You can click “Settings” button to set advanced settings before conversion starts. Once you click the button, the Settings window shows up, where you are allowed to adjust video and audio parameters in your own ways, include codec name, aspect ratio, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate, and audio channel. The recommended video settings for Microsoft Surface RT:

1. Microsoft Surface play 1080p movie

Codec: h264
Size (pix):1920*1080
Frame Rate (fps): original (Set frame rate at “original” to avoid audio and video out of sync issues)

Sample Rate (hz):48000
Channels: Stereo

Frame Rate(fps): original (Set frame rate at “original” to avoid audio and video out of sync issues)

Do remember to click “OK” button to confirm your selection before you start converting DVDs to Microsoft Surface.

Step 5. Click “Convert” button to start converting DVD movies to MP4 for moving to Microsoft Surface playback.

When finished, click “Open” button to get the resulted mp4 video. Then connect Surface RT to your computer using USB cable and transfer converted movies to the Windows 8 tablet for viewing.

“I have confirmed that all my videos are Surface supported like .mp4, but I don’t know how to transfer them into our Surface, call me newbie. Really need some help.”

You can easily add music, pictures, videos, and documents to your Surface using one of the following methods:
