So, you have the responsibility to select a good storage option for all your media! If you are having less amount of movies, you can opt to go with a USB drive – up to around 64GB.
On the other hand, if you are having that much DVDs with you, with most of them included Blu-ray category, you should choose an external Hard Drive so that you can store as many as possible.

If you would like to get the full movie in a seamless manner, you will have to use a DVD ripper so that you can get the whole movie or video in a single media format file. We hope this thing is very useful when you have less time to spend.
On other hand, when it comes to audio CD’s, you will have to rip those CD’s and keep your tracks neatly; the process is even easier than you guess. Nevertheless, in both these methods, you have ways for copying your content without any corruption in data and without losing quality and that is a big deal, indeed.
In addition, you will have to make use of an additional software for copying and ripping Blu-ray DVDs with you so that it will be having its own quality and features when compared to normal forms of media.

If you are concerned about the security of your information, you might be interested in backing up your information so that you would not miss any of your media files unless the storage provider compromises with their way of keep your data. Obviously, this thing might sound quite useful if you are really passionate about movies and music.
