I think that can play a BR ISO.

OKAY, THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME KNOW ABOUT THE ISO FILE!....
Since you don't have the BluRay drive you can't convert it either. This is just one of the reasons I own about 5 BR titles. Too closed a system for my taste.
Thanks for the clarification Bob
RE: R PROFFITT
I WAS LOOKING A PROGRAM CALLED "MAKEMVK", AND THE CLAIMS TO IT, IS THAT IT COULD SCAN AND CONVERT A BLU-RAY DISC, EVEN IF THE PLAYER THAT YOU HAVE, ISN'T A BLU-RAY PLAYER..... BUT OKAY..... THANK YOU FOR YOUR REPLY!!...
SCAN AND CONVERT
The term they use sound like a scam to me.
Scam. Or they were just unclear.
Without a BluRay drive you can't read the BluRay disc for conversion. Either it's a scam or they weren't clear on the requirements.
I take back what I said.
I download the beta and it seems to work with DVD. I have not try it with BR yet.
DVD drives don't have a Blue laser.
Surprise. That's why the Blu in BluRay.
http://www.blu-ray.com/info/ covers this in detail. The DVD drive uses a red laser and can not read a BluRay disc. So now way can it read the BluRay media in a DVD drive.
Ok, My report.
The program is legit. It works with BR as well. It's re-encode to .mkv but not sure what inside, all I see is a video file . I played it with VLC. So it does work as advertise.
What about the claim or question about
re-encode from a BluRay disc without a BluRay drive?
Obviously that's not possible.
Little more info on this. It will not transcode HDdvd disc. but it does transcode 3D BR disc, however it took a long long time as compare to 2D BR disc. I didn't play it in 3D mode, I am not sure if vlc can do that. My monitor is not a 3D display anyway. I was not able to convert the .mkv to BR disc because the link they provided for the "tool" was not working. for 50 bucks, it doesn't seem too bad if it doesn't have any time limit.
Here's something I found interesting;
Maybe this is just this computer but VLC will not play commercial BR disc because it's encrypted. Ok with dvd...but I thought they are also encrypted. I am talking about just playing it, not copying it.
The OP doesn't have the needed hardware.
Software can't enable a DVD drive to read BluRay.
