"I want to replace my Blu-ray player with new my Nvidia Shield console tablet as my movie watching device. I try to hook a USB driver and USB Samsung BD player to the tablet to play Blu-ray DVD disc. I could play Blu-ray DVD ISO files, but I don't want do that, I want to watch the disc itself. Perhaps, USB Blu-ray/DVD drive and player is not supported by the tablet, any alternative solutions? I don't want to buy a separate player just for the disc."
