Quick Tips for Ripping Blu-ray and DVD Disc

Fun fact about Blu-ray discs and DVD discs’ copy protection is — it is becoming increasingly strict with the developing copy protection technology, such as CSS (Content Scramble System – used on DVD) and Cinavia (for Blu-ray). For someone who wants to rip the content in Blu-ray or DVD optical disc, they may run into problems.

In these cases, I tested several Blu-ray/DVD rippers and evaluated VideoSolo BD-DVD Ripper as the best tool for readers in need. It can import all the Blu-ray and DVD discs, which have strict protection such as region code and Disney 99 title copy protection. This is the most important first step when you are going to rip the discs. The rippers should encode the copy-protected commercial disc and import the disc successfully into the program.

Tips1: Click on “Load Disc” on the main interface to import BD/DVD disc, ISO file, or disc folder.
