you mean to create a new disc to put in player?
No. Most modern players have USB inputs to accommodate external hard drives and play the (decrypted) DVDs from there.
Bad advice. Blu-ray players play DVDs, but their built-in media players don't know how to play DVD ISOs or DVD file and folder structures stored on USB sticks or USB hard drives.
Most Blu-ray players media players can play individual VOB files copied from a decrypted DVD, although the VOBs won't play correctly in every case. However the manual for the Philips BDP2200/12 does not mention VOBs as playable files.
The manual for the Philips BDP2200/12 does indicate it plays MKV files containing MPEG2 video and various types of audio. Use MakeMKV to decrypt DVDs and copy the video into a MKV container. DVD audio and video in an MKV file should play from a USB stick, USB hard drive, or even a DVD.
It is also possible to decrypt and copy the DVD files and folders to a PC using a using a DVD decrypter, creating a region-free copy, and then burn the copied files onto a new DVD with ImgBurn or other good burning software.
