    And just to be clear, it's not like she's going to be watching the movies on our whole 16 hours of driving next weekend. We have books on tape, a 3-400 mp3 playlist of kids songs and songs from disney (with a few Beatles, CSNY, CCR, etc. thrown in because I want to raise her with some taste), coloring books, read together books as well. An hour or two of Dora is just one more arrow in the quiver.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

Which, I have finally figured out how to stream amazon prime so we can watch other stuff too if we have wifi.

Many of our kids dvds are old and/or were bought used so don't have the digital download or whatever that many come with today. If ripping is a possibility, that might not be an issue.
    What I am keeping in mind for my next tablet purchase is that it have removable storage in addition to the built-in. So my kids' tablet (really it's a family tablet but somehow they only ever have it) has a 64GB card in it to hold more stuff. But some of the new ones don't have that removable storage.

    This is the program I use to rip dvd's and this is the program I use to convert the ripped file to avi that is easier to play and smaller than just the dvd data.

    DVD decrypter has trouble w/ the security on pixar dvd's though.
