I need help. I have a disk with movies on it. I want to add those movies to my thunderbolt. When i plug my phone up to the computer it asks me to put a disk in from the manufacturer to install the disk driver. My phone did not come with a disk. When i plug the phone to the computer the phone does not respond. I changed the settings to use thunderbolt as disk drive and it shows up on my computer as a "removeable disk (f:). I tried to drag the movies to it and it says "please insert disk into removeable disk (f:) which is the phone....help it wont go any further.
I'm a little late to reply to this one, but it seems to me that you are not understanding the required process of downloading drivers for new devices and adding videos to the Thunderbolt. It would be hard to tailor directions for you because your computer setup is unknown. If your computer is seeing the Thunderbolt as a disk, then the drivers are already there. Khassy is correct; you need to copy the movie files to your computer, then move them to your phone. Handbrake can do this for you, try and follow the instructions from the OP.
I have a question that I think goes more towards handbrake...
I have used HB on my mac for quite some time and used the steps you suggested for converting to my ipod, but now that I have an Thunderbolt... I figure... why not see if I can make it my 1 stop media viewer/phone/etc... I figured that my work computer is quicker than my apple, so why not just do the conversions at work and let it run that way... Well I got HB running and I am getting a show set up (Had to make a queue because its 7 episodes in the disk) and its now telling me that its going to take upwards of 42 hours to encode... I am going straight from the disk, and maybe thats where the problem lies...
Either way; does this sound normal? The computer is a Core I-7 with 8gb of ram, so I really doubt its the computer... Would going through an alternate program to bring the TS file to my hard drive first save me some time? Right now everything is still running and its encoding, but I just dont want to wait 2 days and come back and its not done correctly, lol.
Edit: ** Update ** Back to the drawing board for me. It seems like Handbrake keeps quitting unexpectedly.... Maybe its the DVD causing this? I will have to give it a shot with something else and see where that gets me. I will also try this DVD with my mac when I get home today and see if I get any different results.
42 hours seems excessive, but it depends on what the computer's CPU is already committed to doing while it encodes; also matters on the settings you chose. Using Handbrake straight from disc does take longer, but most people dont want to save the TS folder to their computer. I, personally, do save the entire TS folder to my hard drive so that I can have the file ready to convert to my other devices on the fly. Having two hard drives is the best thing for speeding along the process. Saved the TS info to one drive, then have the output file save to the other hard drive to cut process time in half!
I have never used the queue function with Handbrake, but I would suggest trying to save the TS info, then convert each episode individually. You can usually find the problem if you follow the process window.
Lastly, I noticed that in my quad core computer, the decoding process uses only one core to its maximum while the other three seem available. I always run my computer with bare bones processess, especially when using Handbrake. Disable or unplug from network, shut down firewall/virus scan to free up resources. From start to finish is 10-20 minutes. It only took 20 minutes for one movie: Dark Knight. Took ten minutes to copy TS and ten to decode. It seriously felt like that disc was resisting the process more than any other I have converted. While copying, the disc was spinning so slow and would record in spurts, no other disc has done this.
