Question

Burning 3D Blu-Ray Movies

Mar 22, 2013 5:48AM PDT

Hi, I got a question I need some help with. I will give you my set-up first. I have a HD TV and a 3D Blu-Ray player in my home theater system. I also have a computer with windows 7 and a DVD burner with all the software. My friend bought over a 3D movie and I am trying to burn a copy of it. My question is do I need a blu-ray burner and a Blu-ray DVD to make a copy of it or can I use my DVD burner and a regular burnable DVD and then play the movie in my 3D blu-ray player and watch it on my TV.

There are a few issues with this.

All 3D Blu-Ray movies I see are copy protected and since we are on a CBS hosted site you can rest assured that no one can discuss cracking that or making a copy of that BD media.

So the answer is that you'll have to go buy your own copy.

Think about it. If it was so easy, wouldn't that be the end of the industry as we know it?

What about if it was just general pictures or documents

Ok, what if it was just regular pictures or documents that was on a Blu-ray DVD. Would I be able to copy the stuff that was on it with a DVD burner and a regular DVD or would I need a Blu-ray burner and a Blu-ray DVD in order to make a copy?

To copy the stuff (to a USB stick or your hard disk) a Blu-ray reader suffices.
To copy the disk to another disk, you need a Blu-ray writer/burner.

Thanks, that is what I thought. Do you have any recommendations on what is the best blu-ray writer\burner to get?

FACT CHECK

That is EXACTLY what was said when Beta and VHS tape Recording was introduced.

The result was a 10 FOLD increase in revenues for Hollywood in just a few short years.

Hollywood today earns more money than EVER before out pacing the increases in the consumer price index since its inception in 1984 by OVER 6 Times from box office sales ALONE.

This does take into account all the VHS,DVD, Blu Ray sales, NOT to mention brand NEW revenue streams like Digital Copies, Digital Rentals, Library Rentals to streaming companies like Netflix, Hulu, and MANY others yet to come. Hollywood is the USAs #1 Export, the US Exports more Mickey Mouse than ANYTHING else (and YES, Including iPhones).

I do Agree COMPLETELY that Pirating is an ABSOLUTE NO-NO, and it is NO different than stealing and should be punished accordingly.

I also understand that this issue may have some type of personal attachment to you judging by your comments, but I also take it VERY personal as demonstrated here when my intelligence is offended.

Infringing on ANYONES intellectual property should be punished accordingly and completely discouraged, so should offending others intelligence.

The Motion Picture Association (MPA) has NEVER been healthier.
