How do I clone a Blu-Ray

Postby GRINCH » Mon Sep 05, 2011 3:17 pm

What's up fellas!!

Let see who can give me a hand with this...

I have a Pioneer Blu-Ray burner 12x and bought 25gb blu-ray discs.

I have used a few programs like DVDFab 8, AnyDVD HD and Blue Cloner with no luck in copying or cloning blu-ray movies.

Has any of you cloned a complete blu-ray movie to a blank disc yet? And if so, would you share with us how it is done.

For Example:

With my DVD's I use AnyDVD to remove the protection and CloneDVD2 to copy or clone the entire DVD. Is there anything like this with Blu-Ray yet?

Your help is highly appreciated. :Grinch

I've never written a Blu-ray disc but I have used DVDFab to rip it to Hard Drive. Then I just watch it from there. Have not tried any other programs.

I have never done this myself, but i know there are alot of programs that can do it, I as you did used to use anydvd and clone dvd2 for dvds, I think anydvd should be ok to rip the films from the original and on to your hard drive, i think the problem many people have is burning them in the correct format for the player to understand it properly, i will try to find a guide for you.

Before burning the film onto the disc have you tried playing it on your pc to make sure it is ripped correctly?

Plus you need to make sure you have the latest version of the software you are using to rip them, ie anydvd, as they are always making small changes to the protection.

Yea I saw it, but you have to record the whole movie. So basically you sit and wait for the movie, shit you can watch it too... lol

I don't have time for that.

the trouble, with the br menues, are that the structure is way more complicated, than on a ordinary dvd,if you managed to copy a bluray, you are ahead of the game mate....
the menu thingy, will not be solved for a while....

btw, most people stream their content now, as mediaplayers are becoming cheaper by the hour...

If this isn't too late, you can use ImgBurn to burn BR discs. It is the descendent of the burning utility that used to come with DVD Decrypter, available here . . . http://www.imgburn.com

Just watch which "Download" link you click on as there's many links that download something else. Be sure you are downloading the ImgBurn program. I've used it for years for burning everything and it is superb.

Here you go mate, use img burn, it's a free download http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download
disable anyDVD if you are using it. Insert your disk and select create image file from disc (you want full disc so you get all menus audio etc)
select where to store it and you're done
OR
use anyDVDHD to rip it to your hard drive , I usually do it as files as a full disc
then disable anyDVDHD and use imgburn to create an iso from those files
if your disc is 25 gig or less use imgburn to burn it to a 25 gig disc
if it's over that you can either just burn it to a 50 gig disc
OR
use BD ReBuilder to compress it down to 23 gig and burn it to a 25 gig disc

Personally as I've found some players don't like the compressed blu ray I do anything over 25 gig to a 50 gig disc with no compression.
But if you are playing on a PS3 I think compressed discs play fine, I think they might on most if not all sonys but my Panasonic doesn't like anything compressed to much, they get stuck on the menu.
50gig discs are pretty cheap to buy directly from Japan so I just grab 10 of them every 4 or 5 months.
All to back up my purchased blu ray collection.

Hope this helps.

I haven't done any BR discs but I've done over 800 DVD's. If you disable AnyDVD anytime you're trying to read the disc you'll get an error. AnyDVD makes the disc "look like" it has no copy protection so programs like ImgBurn can read it. Once the disc is ripped or copied you can disable AnyDVD.

you only disable anyDVD when using image burn to make your iso or burn your disc, image burn and anyDVD don't like each other to much.
But if you rip your disc originally using anyDVD you have already removed the protection so it's not needed for making the iso or the burn.
Probably could have been a little clearer before, sorry about that.
