How to Play DVD movies on Surface Pro Windows 8

I want to transfer DVD movie to my Surface Pro tablet for watching, but the discs are protected. Is there a way to watch my DVD movies without converting into compatible format.

How to play DVDs and Blu-ray discs in Surface Pro Windows 8
* First you need to use an external DVD drive. I just tried it with an sony DVD drive via USB and it works great. For listening music, USB CD drive also does the job.
* Windows 8 is lack of built-in DVD support for computer, tablets and ultrabooks. So you have to install a Third-Party DVD Player.
VLC media player:
It is free and also works fine with unencrypted Blu-ray discs. Open the player and click Media from the menu > Open Disc.
Purchase the Windows 8 Media Center Pack:
Windows Media Center includes the ability to DVD playback, watch and record broadcast TV. But after activated, it only allows you to play in Media Center, not Media Player.
