I want to rip my DVD's and play them from an external hard drive vs. looking through my DVD's to find the movie I am looking for.

I have a Vizio Smart TV (Model #E43-C2) and a Seagate 4TB External Hard Drive (Model #SRD00F2).

I orginally tried hooking it up through the USB port on my TV and it would not read. I then hooked it up through my DVD player which is a Samsung (Model #DVD-1080P9). The DVD was able to pick ip the external hard drive, but it states it's empty, which it is not.

I did some research on the DVD player and it says that it can only recognize a .mpeg file but I have a .mpg file, an .avi file and an .mp4 file and none are coming up. What am I doing wrong?
