Now that Blu-ray movies are building up in my collection i’d like to copy some of the more expensive titles for the kids to be able to use whenever they want. What program do you guys use and what kind of blanks? Really just want the main movie so would there be different disc size or dual layer you guys would use? Do you compress the movie size to get it to fit? And last what kind of burner do you use? I have PC and Mac so whatever help would be great. Also if this topic is a no no mods please delete i understand coy issues but i see nothing wrong with back ups.

“How to back-up” conversations are fine, Mike.

DVDFab is a program that includes Blu-Ray capabilities. I’ve never used it but I believe it has a main movie setting so if you want just the movie and not all the extras … that should be possible. My children have damaged some of the DVDs we bought them so I can understand wanting to make back-ups. I guess I’m not giving a tons of assistance but I’d recommend looking into DVDFab.

I don’t know what most blu-ray movies come out on: single layer or dual layer. If it’s single layer, I would back-up the entire thing. Anything else would just be a hassle and waste of time.

Based on my (still rather limited) experience dealing with blu-ray disks, I think we’re at that stage where DVD-Rs were around ten years ago — where there were a lot of “bugs” that cropped up between the brand of disk, authoring program, burning program, burner, blu-ray player, etc., so that without the latest firmware update or using the latest version of an authoring program or using a certain brand of blu-ray disk – you could easily run into a problem – but given the exact same circumstances – your buddy might not have any problems at all because he uses different brand disks or has a different brand/model of blu-ray player.

I’m sure the situation will gradually iron itself out – just like it did for the DVD-Rs.

Something I noticed here – seems like everyone who burns on Verbatims has been successful.

THanks Randy this was just what i was thinking as far as the BUGS go. Having searched around for GB size of movies it looks to be in the range of 15gb to 35 GB so that’s quite a range. Then you start taking out the various things out that you don’t want to get the movie to fit on the disc and that doesn’t seem like it will work without bad burns. Thanks for the feedback.

Verbatim seemed to be what worked good with dual layers, so that’s why I stuck with them for blu-rays
