How to copy Blu-ray movies

As we know, quite a lot of movie lovers enjoy collecting Blu-ray movies. Since Blu-ray movie discs are prone to damage, then how to protect your precious collections? Now I’ll introduce you two software to help you back up Blu-ray movies. Here we go!

1. Copy Blu-ray Movies Using Blue-Cloner

1.1 Preparatory Work

  • Download the latest version of Blue-Cloner installation package (Download Blue-Cloner).
  • A SATA-Interface or USB-port Blu-ray burner. Make sure your Blu-ray burner works properly to avoid wasting the blank discs.
  • Make sure that there is 50GB or more free disk space.
  • Prepare a blank writable disc. Verbatim and Philips BD-Rs are recommended.
  • A Blu-ray player, which is optional to be used to test the copy.

1.2 Install and Start Blue-Cloner

Run the Blue-Cloner installation package and complete the installation according to the wizard. After the installation, run Blue-Cloner.

By default, you’ll see the Express interface. If you cannot see this interface, click the “Switch to express” icon at the top right.

Now, please put your Blu-ray movie into the drive. After Blue-Cloner recognized the Blu-ray disc, you’ll see the movie name and movie size in the scrolling bar.

1.3 Start Copying

Upon detecting the source Blu-ray movie, Blue-Cloner could start copying. Please click the “Start” button and the copy will begin.

After starting the copy, Blue-Cloner will first analyze and decrypt the Blu-ray. It lasts about 1 minute. A network connection is required during this process because decrypting Blu-ray is done on the server. As we all know, Blu-ray encryption is very strict and is automatically upgraded, so we need to constantly update codes on the server to crack Blu-ray protections. Currently Blue-Cloner can remove AACS, BD+, Cinavia and many other protections.

After the analysis and decryption is completed, Blue-Cloner starts reading data.

blue-cloner copy process

During the Blu-ray copy process, Blue-Cloner first compresses the video and then re-encodes it into the Blu-ray format. Re-encoding Blu-ray is time consuming because Blu-ray generally uses the H.264 1080p video format. Blue-Cloner has been optimized for H.264 compression, which greatly increased the compression speed. It also supports NVIDIA CUDA, AMD AMF, Intel QS GPU acceleration. Based on all above, Blue-Cloner can complete the encoding work within 30~60 minutes.

When the reading is completed, you’ll be prompted to insert a blank disc.

You may also use 2 Blu-ray drives, one reader and one burner, which allows you to put a blank disc into the burner before starting the task. Blue-Cloner will automatically detect this burner for burning. After placing a blank BD-R/RE, Blue-Cloner will recognize the disc and automatically close the waiting window to start burning.

It is recommended not to use other programs during the burning process, especially large software such as Photoshop and other resource-intensive software. Because the data transmission must be guaranteed that it will not be interrupted at any time during the burning process. Once it is interrupted, it will fail to burn. This is due to the characteristics of BD-R.

Although Blue-Cloner has used 100M of memory for data cache, the recording speed is generally pretty high. In order to ensure the burning effect, it is highly recommended not to run other programs.

The completion screen will be displayed after the burning is completed.

Congratulations! Now a Blu-ray copy has been made. You may play it on your Blu-ray player/PC to check the quality. If there are other Blu-ray movies that need to be copied, click on the home button to return, and then repeat the above operation.
