    Could you provide some specs on your TV (HD?) and USB drive (size?). You didn't really specify if you want a balance of quality and quantity, since the higher quality, the less quantity of movies you can have on a single USB drive.

    For the best loss-less quality, simply burn the TS or VOB folders after you rip the DVD. When you burn these you don't loose any quality. You would use a program such as ImgBurn or Cheetah DVD Burner (I think it can burn to a USB) to burn the VIDEO_TS folder. However, since these can be tricky to burn for the first time, the next best are probably an uncompressed AVI (but it can be huge) and MPEG-2 (nice balance)
