BD R Software
I appreciate all of your help.
I just bought the LG Blu-Ray Burner. I have been using Anydvd and Clonedvd for many years.
What software do I need now? I have the Anydvd what else do I need?
What steps should I follow?
Thanks a lot
Upgrade and then it's up to you
Until we get our BD burning product on the market you can still process BluRay discs. First you have to upgrade your AnyDVD to "HD".
Then see this info about using AnyDVD for BluRay discs.
Regarding AnyDVD HD's capabilities, take a look here:
This means, you can rip the movie to your hard drive, but it cannot be burned
or transcoded with CloneDVD.
In order to rip the BD to your hard drive, right-click the fox icon in the
tasktray and choose "Rip Video DVD to HardDisk..."

And there is a full disc backup method (provided the BD source fits onto a
Download and install ImgBurn (http://www.imgburn.com - it's a free tool).
Activate AnyDVD HD (the fox is red). Then insert a BD and let it scan with
Then open ImgBurn. Select read mode to "create image on hard drive". ImgBurn
will create an image of the BD on the hard drive (in most cases). Then insert
a blank disc. Then select the write mode "write image to blank disc".
To fit to a 25GB blank, see this:
You can play mounted ISOs with PowerDVD with the studio terror removed also:
The Cyberlink team erased PowerDVD Ultra's capability to play hard drive images some time ago - we assume they were threatened by the entertainment industry.
Please create an image of the BD ("Rip to image"). Then mount this image with
the Virtual CloneDrive and play that virtual drive with PowerDVD Ultra.
In case you haven't used the Virtual CloneDrive yet:
The Virtual CloneDrive can be found here:
You can use the Virtual CloneDrive to emulate a CD/DVD/HD DVD/BD drive out of
the image file stored on your hard drive, for example use the Virtual Drive to
preview optical media before burning them to a blank.
To insert a .dvd file into the Virtual Drive, just go to the Virtual Drive
drive letter in the Explorer, right click onto it and choose "Virtual Clone
Drive / Load image file". Then choose the location of the .dvd file and press
OK. Now the drive letter with the Virtual Drive just behaves like a normal
CD/DVD/HD DVD/BD drive.
Once installed, you'll find a documentation at Start-All Programs-Elaborate
In addition to this: Once the image is mounted on the Virtual CloneDrive and a
drive letter with the BD visible on the Windows file explorer, you can copy
the (full) BD to a blank with ImgBurn, a free tool:
ImgBurn will "see" the Virtual CloneDrive letter as a BD drive and is able to
burn this BD to another BD-R/RE with a Blu-ray writer.
