I can back up my dvd movies and 360 games and ps2 blah blah blah... but just new into the bluray arena. Ive got my burner,25bg disks, anydvd hd/blu-ray but not sure where to go from here. any help would be great and appreciated. Thanks

    well thanks for all the help ive received Ive managed to back up my Twilight blu ray disk to a bd-r 25gb. using anydvdhd,bdrebuilder and imgburn and many, many hrs later I was able to get Just the Movie. No extras. Trying my luck on my Transformers revenge of the Fallen now. I have a ETA of 13hrs left of the bdrebuilder part then try to burn with imgburn.

    DVDFAB HD will re-size to a 25gb BD-R in very little time. It takes about an hour or two.

    Problem is that you have to have Any-DVDHD do the decoding work, since the DVDFAB guys are not able to push out current updates to the decoder very fast or reliably.

    AnyDVD HD to decode > DVDFab HD to shrink > ImageBurn to burn. About 4 hours work per Blu-Ray.

    If you desire to use BD-Rebuilder...change two setting...one to movie only and the other to 25GB. The application will do the rest. Personally I like to use MeGUI and TSMuxer

    Sorry, I wish I could help you with MAC. Hopefully another MAC user can chime in.

    yea, its hard out here for us Mac users burning Blu Rays. i can extract them, rip, convert, etc, etc, but it is a lot of work.

    i am very satisfied with using my girlfriends PC. i use AnyDVD HD to rip the BD to my desktop or wherever you want, after that i go in and find which .m2ts file i need. i just remember it, or write which one it is on some paper or whatever, then i take IMGburn. from there i choose to create image from file or folder. i go in and hit browse file/folders and find the certain .m2ts file i need then choose it, then obviously give it a destination such as your desktop or wherever again. i use desktop because it is easy to find and delete when finished. after i do this i convert it (.m2ts file) to an image (.iso). after you have successfully created your image file of your .m2ts file i reopen IMGburn, then choose to write image (.iso) to disc, and there you have it! PC style of course.

    i own a LG blu ray burner and it works great! i always unplug it and plug it back in just before i write the image to disc (burn the blu ray). it seems to help me, i had trouble with it before, but this fixed it for me. i don't know?

    my method does not include any special features or menus or anything, just the movie itself. they usually run in the 16-21gb zone. just right for a 25gb blu ray disc.

    Another recommendation would be to try using BD-Rebuilder which is basically a one-click application once you set the settings to "movie only" and "BD25" The result will be a MDMV and CERTIFICATE folders which you then burn with IMGBURN.

    There is only one problem that I have found when using for instance DVDFab 7 to shrink a blu-ray movie down small enough to fit on a 25gb single layer blu-ray blank and that is:

    When I owned an older Sony Blu-ray player a BDP-S300 shrunk movies would play just fine on it. However; now that I have traded up to a Sony BDP-S560 movies that I used DVDFab 6 or 7 to shrink will not play in the BDP-S560. I get a message something like, unable to play this disk.

    Having said that, I now rip blu-ray disc's using AnyDVD (HD) to an .iso file which saves everything on the disc. I then use the CyberLink BD Suite that came with my Plextor PX-B940SA to burn the .iso file to disc. This however; means that if a blu-ray contains more than 25GB's of Data then I have no choice but to use a 50GB blank.

    I only use: TDK Blu-ray Disc 50GB 4X BD-R - Printable [Japanese Import] and
    TDK Blu-ray Disc 20 Count Spindle - 25GB 4X BD-R - Printable [Japanese Import].

    The 25GB disc's run about $5.00 each and the 50GB disc's run around $10.00 each.

    PS: I only burn at 2X. That is half the rated burn speed for the blanks. Eventually when 6X or 8X blanks are available from TDK then I will increase the burn speed.

    I have burned more than 200 blu-rays, and haven't had a coaster yet.

    Eric
