Steps to copy “West Side Story” using DVD-Cloner. Please follow as below:

  • Step 1. Launch DVD-Cloner software, it shows Express interface by default. When the DVD-Cloner recognized the “West Side Story” UHD disc, it will display the following interface. If you cannot see the UHD disc’s volume label, then your drive may not be a valid friendly drive.
  • Step 2. Click on “COPY TO BD50” to start the copy process. DVD-Cloner will copy the UHD to the BD-R DL disc in movie-only mode.

You can also choose “RIP TO MKV” to rip UHD to an MKV file. By default, the ripping process will recompress the video to H.264 (which can be changed to H.265 in “Setup”) and copy all audio tracks and subtitles.

DVD-Cloner will first cache the entire contents of the UHD to the hard disk.

  • Step 3. When caching is finished, DVD-Cloner will re-encode to H.265. This process is very time consuming, we recommend that you enable HST acceleration if available, it will save a lot of time.
  • Step 4. When encoding is finished, you need to insert the prepared BD-R DL blank disc.
  • Step 5. Please insert the BD-R DL disc and click ‘OK’. The burn process will start. Please wait the burning process to complete.
