This is just a quick guide to help out those who would like to back up the protected commercial Blu-ray movies to Blu-ray ISO image files on the hard drive and want them to work in PowerDVD or WinDVD. The Software i use: Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper and ImgBurn or directly use all in one tool: UFUSoft Blu-ray Copy(Enable Copy Blu-ray disc to another blank Blu-ray disc, Blu-ray folder and ISO files. It supports BD-R, BD-RE, BD-R DL and BD-RE DL. Blu-ray Copy can also copy 3D Blu-ray movies with the original video effect 1:1 to another Blu-ray disc, Blu-ray folder and ISO files and support Full Disc Copy and Main Movie Copy). .


Step 1. Import Blu-ray Disc to Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper. Run Blu-ray Ripper and click “BD/DVD ROM”,"BD/DVD Folder" to import Blu-ray.

Step 2. Decrypt and backup Blu-ray contents to hard drive. To make a quick and full copy of the Blu-ray movie, you can click ‘Full Disk Copy’ buttonmake Blu-ray iso image file. In this way all contents of the Blu-ray disc will be copied to your hard drive, including the menus, titles, ads, etc. With the Blu-ray and DVD structure, you do not have to create new menu when burning the Blu-ray movie to blank Blu-ray disc for backup. Once it's finished ripping check the folder structure by adding in the following folders (even if they are empty)

  1. BDMV

Step 3. Load BDMV and CERTIFICATE Folder to Imgburn. Once that's done then using Imgburn choose 'Create Image from Files & Folders', drag in the BDMV and CERTIFICATE Folder along with any extra files that in your root folder outside of those two folders.

Step 4. Create Blu-ray ISO image file using the source Blu-ray contents. In Imgburn on the 'Options' tab set to UDF and 2.5. On the 'Labels' tab type the name of the film in the UDF box. Then choose the destination where you want it to build the ISO and set it going.

So far using this method all my Images play back perfectly in PowerDVD using Virtual Clone Drive to mount them with.


Load BD to Pavtube. By default the files are listed in Title Mode, all the chapters are in numerical sequence for you to check individually.
