None!

To transfer a file or video PC film download requires no extra software.

Simply copy that file to your USB thumb drive and you are done.


--> HOWEVER very few "standard DVD player"s can play from USB thumbdrives. And those that do require the video to be formatted according to that maker's spec.

The answer is none for both the transfer and which software. It has to be "none" because of the what you asked!

formatting

I understand copying on to the thumbdrive as I do this every day -- then that thumbdrive plays on any another computer but NOT on a DVD player; which is my problem.
This copying process works for pictures and one time for 45 episodes of a series I downloaded but it took an hour for the DVD player to read them each time before it would play.
All I want to do is copy one movie at a time onto a thumbdrive and playit on a DVD player -- but it won't so I need software which will re-format.
It must be available somewhere as I already have one for DVD discs.

Thanks anyway

Not today.

Keep in mind your post left out the make and model of the player so I can't go check what this play supports for playback on USB.

I'm sure such details are available but I can't find it.
