Microsoft claims its Surface 3 will be available in 26 markets by May 7th. It has come at a perfect juncture in light of Microsoft's recent Windows 10 debut, which has seen the company take the first major step toward merging the OS across all devices. With a larger and satisfying definition screen, Microsoft Surface 3 is also a perfect portable video player for you to enjoy Blu-ray ISO movies.

If you also have collected lots of Blu-ray ISO Image files and want to play them Surface 3 on Windows 10. No worry, the following paragraphs will explain how you can get all Blu-ray ISO media files to play on the Microsoft Surface 3, without having to try different video players or settings. 

Hot Search: iTunes to Surface 3AVI to Surface ProDVD to Surface ProBlu-ray to Surface ProVudu movies to Surface Pro

For getting Blu ray ISO movies onto Surface 3 via Windows 10, a Blu-ray encoding software is necessary. I’ve tried at least there applications but the picture quality was not very good at all, it would pixelate in high motion scenes that is just very annoying to me. I tried the built in profile and even built a couple from scratch and they all came out the same. Well, when I tired Pavtube BDMagic(Read Review), it works perfectly with the excellent picture/image quality. 

The program can be used as a great Blu-ray, DVD Converter for Microsoft Surface 3, In fact, it’s a yet professional Blu-ray to Android/Windows/iOS ripping tool; in other word, it enables you to play Blu-ray on all Android, Windows or iOS based tablets or phones. The output quality is excellent and the encoding speed is very fast. 

If you are a Mac user, please get the Mac BDMagic for ripping Blu-ray, Blu-ray ISO, DVDs, DVD ISO to Surface 3 on Mac OS X (Mavericks and Yosemite included). Now download and follow the below step-by-step guide for you. 

Step 1. Launch the Blu-ray ISO to Surface 3 Converter, and then load your Blu-ray ISO movies to this program. BD, DVD, DVD ISO/IFO are all fully supported. 

Step 2. Now select the output format for playback on Surface 3. You can get optimized videos for Surface tablet under "Windows > Microsoft Surface Windows RT/Pro H.264 Video (*.mp4)". The output videos could fit on Surface 3 perfectly.  

Tip: If you like, you can click "Settings" to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. For watching videos on the Surface 3 tablets, 720p with 1500~2500kbps is just all right. I found the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa. 

Step 3. Finally, click "Convert" button to start ripping Blu-ray files to .mp4, the Windows Surface 3 tablet best video format. Once the conversion completes, you can transfer the result videos to your Surface Tablet.  

In this way, you can play Blu-ray (ISO) movies on Microsoft Surface 3 tablet via Windows 10 and enjoy them on the go.

How to Transfer/Copy Digital Copy movie to Surface RT?

Got an error message when you tried to copy a Digital Copy movie to your Surface RT? Here you will find an effective way to achieve your goal smoothly.

The Microsoft Surface RT is incredibly flexible in terms of media you can put on the device and users have a whole slew of problems when it comes to watching videos on Surface RT. If you've transferred some Digital Copy movies to your PC, you may want to get them ported over to your Surface RT for playback. However, when you tried to open them with xbox video they would not open and continued to give error messages says "can't play". So what if any Digital Copies work on Microsoft Surface RT?  

Basically, film makers use DRM (Digital Right Managemet) to protect their copy-right. This prevent you from watching the movies with an unauthorized media player or portable device. It is a pleasure that the Windows Media Player is one of the authorized media players. However, Microsoft didn't include Windows Media Player or Windows Media Center in Windows RT. This means Digital Copy movies will not even play on Microsoft Surface RT. 

Despite lack of offical support, you can view Digital Copy movies on Surface RT. It just takes a few more steps and only comes with some help from third-party software. But it can be done. Below is how: 

Note: Before conversion you need first to transfer Digital Copy to computer in Windows Media (.wmv) or iTunes video format (.m4v). If you have no idea about how, check my earlier post "Blu-ray/DVD Digital Copy: Transfer, Play and Backup" to learn details. 

Step 1: Download and install ChewTune

When converting protected Digital Copy WMV or M4V files, please make sure you videos play well in Windows Media Player or iTunes (Windows Media Player or iTunes is required for the conversion). Otherwise, the conversion may fail. 

Step 2: Click "Add" button to import your Digital Copy movies or just drag and drop the movies to the software. Batch conversion is supported so that you can add multiple files to convert at a time.

Add iTunes movie

Step 3: Click "Format" bar and move mouse to "Windows" column, you can easily find the profile of "Microsoft Surface Windows RT H.264 Video (*.mp4)". The output videos could fit on Surface RT tablet perfectly. If you like, you can click "Settings" to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. 

iTunes to Android format  

Step 4: Click the big "Convert" button to begin encoding your Digital Copy to Surface RT playable videos. 

Once the encoding task completes, you can transfer the result videos to your SD card for your Surface. There now you know how to get Digital Copy movies onto your Microsoft Surface RT tablet so you can watch them on that gorgeous screen! 

This workaround works with Windows 8, Windows 8.1 as well, of course. 

Additional Tips:

1. About ChewTune - An easy-to-use yet intuitive and stable DRM converter which can help you strip DRM protection from iTunes, Blu-ray/DVD Digital Copy movies Amazon, Zune, BBC iPlayer, Napster, Blockbuster, etc. and convert videos to all popular video formats like MP4, MOV, MKV, WMV, AVI, FLV, etc. for playing and sharing anywhere you like.
