Hi Iwant to copy main movie from Blue Ray using dvdfab to external hard drive. Do I copy as iso? I want to play the movie from my hard drive, what software should I use? Thanks,annieb
There are two ways to accomplish this.
First, rip as ISO to harddrive. You will need mounting software to read the ISO such as Daemon Tools. Then once it is mounted you can play the movie with PowerDVD 9, WinDVD 9, ArcSoft TotalMedia Theater 3 and so on.
Another way is, rip to harddrive as folder. Then you can watch the movie with ArcSoft TMT 3 or Nero Showtime. These are the only software that I know of that can play Blu-ray from folder with menu, features etc.
My preference is rip as folder and watch with Arcsoft TMT3.
I did this to test the blu-ray option a few months ago: ripped to a folder and played it with PowerDVD9+. Worked well with a 7200 RPM SATA hard drive.
