    i am looking to get a blu ray burner for ripping and burning blu-ray and regular dvds. i use anydvd and have anydvd hd as well. i read something about a new technology or issue to be concerned with for 2012 but totally forget where i read it. i believe it was something that would prevent you from copying and ripping. was it bitlock maybe??? anyway, can someone help me and recommend a blu ray burner for this year maybe even with lightscribe that will do what i want without problems?

    thanks in advance

    I haven't bought one yet but I am looking at lg and lite ons. right now leaning towards the LG. I thought I saw one that has the light scribe feature. One person says it does another person says it doesn't. Don't know who to believe. I was going to call the manufacturer tomorrow and ask them. I basically want to take my Blu-ray DVDs and rip them into files on my hard drive. It's a lot easier for me to watch my videos that way. I'm a quadriplegic so it's a little more difficult for me to put DVDs in. Anyone have any recommendations on computers for ripping and encoding? I was looking at this
    Because I want something for a few games I have and for ripping and for my Windows media Center with my TV tuner. I have the ceton infinitv4 it's really nice. As of right now I'm using it on an HP m9040n. But its super slow. I believe I found a brand-new one on HP website with a few more specs for 20 bucks more. I'll probably just get the one site the site. i want a slot for a graphics card, tv tuner, and extra hard drives.

    wait. i thought you can just use a program like clonedvd or handbrake and rip the bluray and make it into an mp4 file.

    HP's come with the lightscribe feature. You can just get an HP with a Bluray reader/burner.I think you can use DVDFab HD decrypter.They have a free version.

    If you plan on converting the blu-ray discs into, say, an mkv or m4v file, then processor ability is important (and I recommend looking into StaxRip for conversions).
    If you want to just put them in storage on your HDD, then any computer equipped with a bluray drive should get the job done. Expect anywhere from 14-50 GB of storage to be used up per bluray.
