    [HOW TO] Play your DVDs using samsung SE-218 on your transformer

    I just bought the samsung dvd writer SE-218 from amazon at the following link.

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o01_s00_i00

    It works wonderfully. I've have not found a dvd in my collection I could not play. That said, you have to do the following steps to make it work. Samsung is terrible at giving instructions.

    When I first got it and plugged it in, I could not for the life of me get it to work. I tried plugging it into my tf101, prime, sl101, and infinity. None would work. I searched the entire internet to find some kind of info on this and nothing. Can you believe that? Absolutely nada. Not a single soul out there have figured out how to make this baby work. I was like "what the hell?" So, after tinkering with it for about 20 minutes, here's how I got it to work.

    (1) Install mxvideo player on your tablet.

    (2) Plug your dvd writer SE-218 into your tablet via usb.

    (3) Press the eject button to eject the tray.

    (4) While the tray is open, press and hold the eject button until the green light on the tray stays lit. Then release. This brings your dvd drive into av mode.

    (5) Close the tray.

    (6) Now, eject and open the tray and put in a dvd.

    (7) Your tablet will now recognize your dvd as a usb device. Your tablet will appear to be frozen for about 10 seconds. Don't panic! It's just reading the dvd disc. Just leave it alone until it's read it.

    (8) Using a file manager, navigate into the usb device and find a vob file that is big, like a couple gigs or so. Play it with your mxplayer.

    VOILA! You can now play dvd's on-the-go. Please spread the word. Amazon is only selling this puppy for 34 bucks. Well worth it!

    Edit.

    I forgot to mention. You will have to eject the tray and long press the button for 3 seconds after every time you plug in the usb. The default mode is pc drive. In order for it to work with android, it will have to be in av mode.

    Oh gosh, I can already foresee all the whiners whining about how long pressing the button for 3 seconds after each time they plug the usb cord in is too much trouble. Good god, you people should go get the ipad so that you won't have to worry about playing dvd on your tablet at all.

    I think the idea of this DVD player was so it had appropriate drivers for android, I remember reading about it a few months back

    Found this at PCWorld uk, Ziboo 33951 Zipad Netbook Docking kit - With DVD-RW and 160gb Hdd with two Sata 2.0 usb ports. I don`t know if this would work with the TF range but if it does i will be getting one... Oh the price i hear you ask! 49.97 reduced from 80 pounds...

    requires 2 USB ports and the DVD drive most likely wouldnt work, I believe Samsung built the drivers themselves to allow it to work on android

    Sounds to me like holding the eject button puts the drive into some sort of mass storage mode, hence the need to play the VOB files directly rather than running the DVD menus. Too bad the mode switch isn't a persistent toggle.
