How to Create ISO image from Blu-ray Disc to Hard Drive

I am going on a long trip next week, and would like to watch Blu-rays of full episodes of The Big Bang Theory on my laptop for my trip. I bought genuine discs of all seasons for I love this sitcome so much. I like Sheldon and his "May I add, Muahaha". But it is so troublesome to bring so many discs and I want to watch them with media video player software. How can I choose the right Blu-ray to Hard Drive Copy Software? Is it easy to use? How long does it take to convert Blu-ray to hard drive?

Creating an ISO image file from a Blu-ray disc for Hard Drive is easy but could take anywhere from a few minutes to over an hour, depending on the size of the disc and the speed of your computer.

You will need to copy Blu-ray contents from protected BDs and then make Blu-ray ISO with these source contents. In order to copy Blu-ray to hard drive, you need to prepare Blu-ray copy software first. And please to make sure the software you choose can support all Blu-ray discs, including the latest encrypted Blu-ray. Actually, you can try Brorsoft Blu-ray Ripper, which is able to remove all Blu-ray copy protections and encryptions such as AACS, BD-Live and BD+ and decrypt and copy Blu-ray with whole structure for future use. If you are on Mac, please get Brosroft Blu-ray copying software for Mac.

[Part I] Backup Blu-ray to Hard Drive with Original Structures

Step 1. Load Blu-ray Movie

Launch the Blu-ray Ripper and click disc button to load original Blu-ray disc. You need a Blu-ray Disc drive (either external or internal) to read Blu-ray Disc.

Step 2. Decrypt and copy Blu-ray contents to hard drive

Click the quick button "Copy the entire disc" to start copying the Blu-ray disc to hard drive, including the menus, titles, ads, etc. Full disc copy means to help users to backup the whole contents(menus, titles, ads, etc) of a Blu-ray disc remaining the original structures.

As soon as the copying task finished, you can click "Open" button to locate the Blu-ray directory. And in usual, the BDMV directory is contained by default. To create those Blu-ray backups to ISO image files, you need to add the CERTIFICATE folder in most cases.

[Part II] Create an ISO File with ImgBurn

1. Get an ISO compiler

The most widely used tool for compiling files into ISO is the ImgBurn utility, which is also free. Download and install the software.

2. Load BDMV and CERTIFICATE folder to ImgBurn

Open ImgBurn; start compiling feature by double clicking on the "Create image file from files/folders" and navigate to the title folder, double-click it, then select the BDMV and Certificate folders along with any extra.

3. Start creating a Blu-ray ISO-File from folder

Select the destination for your image file(.iso) -> Configure the options for your .iso file(Tap Option bar and set File System, and UDF Revision)- > Finally click on Build button.

Now you can enjoy your BD movies not using physical drive anytime and it will not have limiting of number.
