Bluray Ripping Advice

71 posts in this topic

Disney discs are the most trickiest - even on dvds they put in zero tracks, infinite tracks etc. The only program that seems to rip the dvds is Ripit4me - which is freeware and uses a couple of other free programs in its arsenal.

I imagine the safest way is to do a BR is a 50GB clone - @$4 it is cheap insurance in case your little one has an accident...

Thanks for the tips mjr. I was going to try using my macbook as that's compatible with my bd as well. So have just used my work Sony netbook. But thinking about it. I think your on the money this is a Disney disc thing.

Appreciate the tips will try out and post back how things go !

Yes that is my concern, my little daughter is very carefull ! But accidents do happen she is just young. And the jungle book DVD for instance you'd be lucky to even be able to buy as gone back in the Disney vault and out of circulation. So very important I get this ripped :)

Anyone who uses DVDFab able to make a bluray rip into an XVID AVI keeping the 5.1 (or HD) audio track?

I like the 720p BR rips (as they play on the PS3 with no issue) and I wanted to make my own, and I can get DVDFab to do it no worries, but it wants to convert the audio to 2-channel when you select XVID as the codec. However, when doing a DVD rip, you can have AC-3 audio with the XVID file.. so confused

MKV allows you to keep the HD audio - so I can convert to MKV and then probably from there to XVID, but it seems like a convoluted process with too much quality loss

interesting, I dont think it did eject cwt. but it said all was done. mine is a panasonic external drive.

as a matter of fact by default img burn did run to start with and came back with the disc being copy protected or copy righted or something, so anyways I moved across to dvdfab which I use normally anyways.

will check mediainfo - where is that to check ? I'll check the dvdfab version. the whole process took about 2 hours ! so not sure what the go was. I suspect something with disney discs. I tried ripping the disney jungle book DVD again some time earlier for my daughter and dvdfab said could not rip the entire disc as normally do. So did a custom and selected parts of it. Didnt rip properly, next time will try just the movie see if that works ! might try just the movie on the lady & tramp blu-ray as well. seems such a waste of time overall !

I only paid for the bd ripper Al so just use the free fab hd decrypter to make the bd folder then Ive rigged it to make an iso from it with imgburn automatically . The external plextor just pops its lid when the 1st bd folder part is done.

Sounds like you have an auto action programmed if it opens imgburn when you put a disc in .Ive fixed my windows7 laptop the same to do various programs depending on cd/dvd etc ;cd's go straight to db poweramp to make flacs for the oppo . Some types ive selected 'no action' because of drm as you struck :pirate: Try doing a full disc bd folder then use m'info ;http://mediainfo.sourceforge.net/en/Download

to make sure you have what you need before using imgburn or similar .

It sounds like you have the full bd copy subset so if you havent tried it and want to 1/2 the file size; go into the general settings and tick bd25 instead of 50; I did this to the green hornet3d bd and the epson made its iso look as good as the 43gb full iso :wub: Ive read of problems at the fab forum with dvd ripper ;straight decrypting without reencoding is much more reliable and a lot quicker ;my dual core 2.3ghz laptop can take 6hrs with dxva encoding to shrink and convert say a vc1 to an avc file .. If the disc is put in my disc drive I point mediainfo at it and its size determines whether I use passthrough for speed or shrink the file with audiocopy .

...Might seem like a strange answer but have you considered adding more storage?

Not a strange answer at all, and it's exactly what I do. I've just upgraded my storage to 8TB and I'm at 85% capacity. I keep all my content stored uncompressed, bit-for-bit to the original.

hi cwt, no imgbrn seems to have mind of its own. anyways I think have disabled its autoload as was getting irritating. I checked another non disney blu-ray to make sure blu-ray ripping still working which is still the case. I must say gave it a shot to play the iso via the cambridge 751 and that works very nicely too.

so definitely this seems a disney disc thing. I'll have to try mjrs suggestions when get a chance next. just have dvdcopy and blu-ray copy cwt, which have been using to go straight to iso via dvdfab.

for whatever reason imgbrn always comes up with disc is copy righted if try an do an iso with it. perhaps the freebie version doesnt work and have to pay for it or register it or something.

ImgBurn is freeware it just doesn't have a decryptor built in so you can't just make an iso of an un-decrypted iso - they wouldn't make it that easy! :)

I prefer to use it for any isos (after decryption) and for making AVCHDs and have never made a coaster (so far)... For Disney discs I would open DVDFab and clone the result to a 50GB disc which will remove the copy protection. That resultant ISO would burn with imgburn BTW...

imgburn has done that to me ; gave dvdfab administrator rights with windows 7 and everything asks permission before running now ;if connected at all ? windows help assures me its more security :D As mjr says once dvdfab strips/ loses the drm bd live crap imgburn shouldnt say copyright issues. Hd decrypter is a few months behind the latest cinavia rubbish but you have bd copy which is up to date so if the disney disc doesnt work Ide report it at the dvdfab forum and give them your internal logs so fengtao can fix it http://forum.dvdfab.com/

Anyone who uses DVDFab able to make a bluray rip into an XVID AVI keeping the 5.1 (or HD) audio track?

Cant help much Dansdans but when I trialed the xvid with bdripper the lossless codecs couldnt be done ;only lossy .. Have you tried all the profiles like audiocopy if its on the edit page when you use the converter ?
