    I have now made 2 DVDs with menus. I'd like to sell the second as
    well. Same $5.

    I'm going to hunt down some of the people in it and show it to them.
    But how to show it. My laptop doesn't have a drive and I think this
    leaves me with the Android tablet.

    Is there a way to view a DVD on Android similar to the way you would on
    a PC? You'd see the menus and click?

    Or am I reduced to just loading the files in a viewer? Or making a web page.

    What would I render to out of Sony Vegas 11? A 720P mp4, that they list
    for iPad?

    You could buy or borrow an external dvd drive and plug it into the usb port
    of your laptop.

    You could also make files from all of the videos on the dvd so you would
    not need a menu. Vegas can read the videos from the DVD and create files
    for them. You can use the files without needing to render them. I think
    they are in Mpeg 2 format which should play back on your tablet.
    I suggest putting the files on micro SD card and inserting the card into
    your tablet (depending on the type of tablet you have).

    That got me thinking and I found this:

    Virtual CD-ROM Control Panel


    That will mount a disk image.
    Except, I like the menu, I spent a lot of figuring out how to make them!

    Vegas can read the videos from the DVD and create files
    mp4 works on my KitKat. Looks to be about a third lighter than an mpeg.
