Why not just get a portable DVD player? These must be cheap these days. Burn a copy of the DVDs for the kids to get fingerprints all over in the backseat.Since I killed this thread, I'll restart it. I'm considering getting my kids (age 5) a small portable video player to take on long trips. Looking at something small, like a 2" screen, in the $50 range, that can hold 6-8 hours of video. I want to rip some of their copyrighted DVD movies like Cars and Star Wars to WMV or another common format--not sure how that impact my choices, if at all. Choices look like Creative Labs, Sansa, Coby...any suggestions?
