The WSVGA(1,024 x 600) Internal display resolution makes it perfect for watching movies and videos. The following guide is going to show you how to convert DVD to Galaxy Tab video format using Clone2Go DVD Ripper for Mac, so that you can transfer DVD movies to Galaxy Tab and enjoy DVD movies on the go.

Step 4. Transfer Output to Galaxy Tab

After the whole conversion, you can get the output files by clicking the Output Directory button in the interface of the program. Then you can transfer the output files to your Galaxy Tab.

Transfer iTunes music to Galaxy Tab

As you know, the music tracks purchased from iTunes store are protected by DRM. You can only play them on Apple iPod, iPad and iPhone and are limited to play on five Apple devices only. So if you want to play iTunes music with your Galaxy Tab, you need to remove iTunes DRM and convert iTunes music to (DRM free) audio files first.

The easiest way is to burn the music to an audio CD in iTunes and then rip it back as mp3 files.

Or you just get TuneClone to help you, which works great for converting a great number of music tracks, needs no CD discs and preserves the ID3 tags well. Here is the full step-by-step guide:
