I have lot of CD/DVD movie's. And i want to watch those in my Android so i bought one USB CD-DVD ROM.

But my Transformer, does not have USB input, how can i use it?

According to the specs, the Eee Transformer has USB ports. Android 3.1 added USB host support. The problem(s) with what you want to do is that there is no support for DVD navigation (and probably the udf and cd9660 filesystems, as well) in Android. You'd be better off ripping the DVDs onto your computer and using a USB hard drive (or the Transformer's internal storage) to play them on the tablet.

There's probably no support for CD or DVD drives either :P – Matthew Read Nov 28 '11 at 23:24
The Transformer only has USB ports on the keyboard dock. – staticsan Dec 21 '11 at 0:26

Can't say for the tablet itself, but the Eee Station comes with USB ports, and Samsung introduced recently (Apr 2012) the world's thinnest optical drive designed for tablets.

The SE-2188BB supports Android Honeycomb version 3.1 or later and can handle a variety of media at high speeds including 24X CD-ROM, 24X CD-RW, 8X DVD±R recording, 5X DVD-RAM recording, 6X DVD+R Dual Layer recording, 6X DVD-R Dual Layer recording, 8X DVD+RW recording and 6X DVD-RW recording


It's safe to assume that this is the type of solution you were after.
