You want AnyDVD HD and Virtual CloneDrive (http://www.slysoft.com/en/virtual-clonedrive.html), IMHO
PowerDVD Ultra, WinDVD Plus BluRay, or TotalMedia Theatre
A BluRay reader or reader/burner
A powerful enough CPU
A powerful enough video card
I'd recommend looking at the minimum & recommended system requirements for the software players I noted about in item 2. That'll give you an idea of what you need.

I prefer the hardware playback instead of the software playback to eliminate ALL THE PROBLEMS associated with software hi def playback.
1. Ripper of your choice
2. BDinfo (to identify what is on the source Blu-ray disk)
3. TSMUXER ( to build the homemake compliant Blu-ray structure any may you want)
4. Imgburn ( to burn the ISO image or the Blu-ray structure to BD-5, BD-9, BD-R, BD-RE
You will need a Blu-ray reader/burner something like an LG GBW-H20L.
LG claims this unit will burn at 6X rate on BD-R when the media comes out.
You will also need a hardware Blu-ray player that will play homemade compliant Blu-ray structures on BD-5, BD-9, BD-R, and BD-RE something like a Sony BDP-S301.

What I find interesting is that my LG-GGW-h20L writes at 6x on my 4x discs in Imgburn

I would credit that speed to LIGHTING UK and the entire beta team for building a lean and mean software program and their expertise.
