Exactly, I have transferred my TREK DVD's to blu ray disc just in case i upgrade to blu ray. Yet I am thinking about making a SD card player for my TV and putting all my movies on SD ?cards since they are by far the most stable media available today.

Why did you do that? ?DVDs not only play on all Blu Ray players, they actually look better than when played on a DVD player due to the upscale feature which uses more of the data that is available on DVDs, but not used by DVD players.

Well I have a Blu-Ray/DVD/ CD ?disk duplicator, so all I have to do is copy every thing over to my hard drive on PC ?and then I can burn professional quality BR,DVD or CD's. It's the same type equipment the DVD/BR ?companies use just on a smaller scale.

There is NO ?quality loss.

Even with no degredation it seems a waste of effort, why not just use the original DVD's. Is it so you can safely store them while using the copies? I suppose there would be less discs to handle because you'll get more episodes on to the Blu-Ray disk.

Yes, its about preserving the originals. Even the DVD's I watch now are copies. I figure why risk having to replace something over a scratch.

On  a side note I just bought my friends HD-DVD player plus all of his equipment for burning HD-DVD's for 200 bucks. He gave me like 100  blank HD-DVD's so that's my video upgrade for the time being.

He's nice enough but he follows the new tech is better tech mentality.

How can a 480p dvd (even if upscaled) have a higher quality than the much finer, much more detailed 1080p blu ray?

Well if the DVD itself is of a higher quality than the Blu Ray disc then you can get better visuals that way.

NOT all DVD's are 420 dpi, IF they are recorded with the latest software you can get 720 dpi on a DVD.

In  short it's not about  its about the software, IF I were to use data compression software I could get 1080 dpi on a DVD.

DVD's are just a medium to record to, they dont define the quality.
