How to Copy Blu-ray Discs with
Step1) Download BackupBluray
Note: If the above link does not work, you might try
searching via Google for “BackupBluRayv021.zip”.
Step2) Extract the files
from the zip package. You will then see two new directories,
a “run” directory and a “src”
Step3) Download and Install
the Java untime Environment. Java runtime is needed
in order for BackupBluray to function.
Step4) Find the CPS Unit
Key for the Blu-ray movie that you would like to backup.
CPS Unit keys can be found at Doom9:
or at other locations around the net.
You can also find the CPS Unit Key yourself if the movie
that you wish to backup does not have its’ key
listed online, but I will not delve into the key discovery
process at this time.
Step5) Navigate to the
recently extracted “run” directory for BackupBluray.
The run directory should contain the following files:
BackupBluRay.cmd, BackupBluRay.jar, CPSKey.cfg.
You will need to copy “java.exe” into the
BackupBluray run directory if you have not modified
the Windows PATH variable to include the original location
of this executable.
Step6) Open the file CPSKey.cfg
using a text editor (such as Notepad) and add the CPS
Unit Key for the Blu-ray movie that you wish to backup
into this file. Save the file.
Step7) Insert your Blu-ray
movie disk into your PC BD-ROM or Blu-ray Burner drive
and close the drive tray.
Step8) Open a Command
window and navigate to the BackupBluray run directory.
To accomplish this more easily, you might want to try
Command Window Here” WindowsXP PowerToy.
Step9) Run BackupBluray
from the command line using the CMD file with the following
backupbluray.cmd SOURCE DESTINATION
Step10) Check the destination
directory with Windows explorer to verify that the files
Step11) Playback the M2TS
files using software such as VideoLan, Nero Showtime
3 or Power DVD 6 BD.
Optional Step12) Burn
your backup files to a BD-R or BD-RE disc! Create a
directory on your Harddrive named “BDMV”.
Copy all of the files out of the original BDMV directory
on the BD-ROM Disc except for the “stream”
directory. Afterwards create a new subdirectory inside
of the BDMV directory on your harddrive and name it
“stream”. Place your decrypted M2TS files
inside of this new stream directory. Burn your entire,
newly completed “BDMV” directory to a blank
BD-R or BD-RE disc using the newest version of Nero
or any other software capable of burning Blu-ray Recordable
media. You should then be able to playback the disc
using a Blu-ray Software player such as WinDVD Blu-ray
edition. Reports on Doom9 also indicate that the PS3
won’t be able to playback BD-R movies with a “BDMV”
structure yet. Thanks to mrazzido
on Doom9 for explaining this method.
Additional information about the BackupBluray utility
can be found on the Doom9 forums. BackupBluray does
not support discs protected with BD+. Thanks to Doom9,
