“I really think I should make a replica for my Blu-ray discs. Me and my wife have invested too much money on it. And my 2-year-old son is really, extremely naughty and is wild about throwing everything he can reach. he has destroyed one of my Blu-ray discs and it made me get heartache. I know I can copy Blu-ray to other popular format to store, but I just want disc. I want to backup several favorite Blu-ray movies from disc to disc. I love tangible and physical disc, no other formats. Who can give me a specified tutorial? Thanks in advance!”
It seems that many people who want to make Blu-ray disc replica are forced by their naughty boys or girls. Copying Blu-ray is actually easy due to various Blu-ray rippers on the market. But backing up Blu-ray movies from disc to disc maybe is not easy as the former because there is no video program can realize Blu-ray ripping and writing simultaneously. Generally, people will use two apps – Blu-ray ripper and Blu-ray writer to get the job done.
For Blu-ray ripper, I recommend Pavtube BDMagic which can fulfill Blu-ray full disc copy with original quality. It has Windows version and Mac version, both of which can support the newest system like Windows 10 and Mac OS X El Capitan. This Blu-ray ripper can rip the latest copy-protected Blu-ray disc and offer 1:1 Blu-ray movie backup without any quality loss. Considering backing up Blu-ray is a time-consuming job, it apply NVIDIA CUDA technology based on Windows system which can immensely reduce Blu-ray ripping time. Of course, as a Blu-ray ripping tool, it has the essential function that is to rip Blu-ray to other video format like H.265, M3U8, MP4, AVI, MKV, MOV, etc to adapt to various portable device, game console, servers and Cloud storage.
Note: BDMagic is free in trial version but its output movie will take a small watermark in the middle of the screen. And full disc copy is allowed to use three times for trial only. To enjoy the movie without restriction, please purchase the retail version.
