I maybe wrong here but I think the reason you can't download is because copy protection issue.
I have purchase a Samsung BD-F8500 Blue Ray HDD player. I have recorded a TV show to the HDD which I want to post on youtube. Samsung have advised that I cannot transfer/copy the show to another device. Apparently there is a way to transfer/copy by connecting a laptop/tablet to the player via USB and use third party software to convert/transfer the file. Samsung says doing this will void the warranty (bought 6 days ago).
1. Is there such software? What is it callled?
2. Can such software do so much damage I should reconsider the loss of warranty?
