With up to 9 hours of battery life, light, portable design and 10″ touch screen, the new Surface Go from Microsoft is perfect for local video playback. For DVD collectors who have just got a new Surface Go, you may come the idea to take all your favorite DVD movies with you when you are out for travelling. The problem is that like other tablets on the market, there is no equipped DVD drive on Surface Go.

Copy/Rip DVD for Surface Go playing
It won’t be difficult for you to find a DVD Ripper application to get the job done, however, since most DVD movies we bought are commercial ones with complicated copy protection, therefore, it would be essential for you to find a powerful DVD Ripper software to get the job completed. After a lot of online testing and comparison, we finally settle on Pavtube ByteCopy. The program can powerfully bypass all DVD copy protection including Region code, RCE, key2Audio, UOP, CSS, Macrovision, FluxDVD, Protect, ARccOS, AACS, BD+, ROM Mark, BD-Live, etc. In addition, it also keeps constant update with perfect importing support for the new copy protection used on many recently released DVD disc. When the protection is removed, you can still use the program to rip or convert the DVD movies to Surface Go tablet playable digital file formats such as MP4, MOV, AVI, WMV, etc according to your own needs.
Edit DVD for optimal playback experience
To get the best playback performance, you can flexibly adjust output profile parameters including video codec, resolution, bit rate, frame rate, audio codec, bit rate, sample rate, channels, etc as you like. What’s more, you can also trim DVD to remove unwanted segments, crop video to get off the unwanted black edges and size area, add video/image/transparent text watermark, apply special rendering effect, insert external subtitle to DVD video, etc.
Adjust output video aspect ratio for Surface Go
The Surface Go uses an aspect ratio of 3:2, while the DVD movies either adopts an aspect ratio of 4:3 or 16:9, when you play the DVD movies with incompatible aspect ratio on Surface Go, there will be black borders around the video frame. The good news is that you can easily fix that by changing output video aspect ratio as 3:2 in the video cropping window.
For Mac users, you can go to download Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac to perform the conversion on macOS High Sierra, macOS Sierra, Mac OS X El Capitan, Mac OS X Yosemite, etc.
