    I just purchased my key, but I am still not seeing the Rip HD option.

    I am using DeamonTools to mount a bdrom.iso file (I tried Virtual CloneDrive but it kept throwing an error), but when I rip it using AnyDVD I dont get enough to be able to play it with PowerDVD.

    I know the ISO is fine cause with AnyDVDHD running I can simply play the mounted version. But with over 25 Blu Rays it is a pain to be constantly mounting and unmounting the iso file. Plus I can't make it integrate with Media Center doing that way.

    What am I doing wrong...

    Any Suggestions would be great...

    Thanks In Advance

    Are you using the Rip Video DVD To Harddisk option? If not...you should be. :)

    Yep. Right-click on the icon in the system tray, select Rip Video to HDD, select your source and destination, wait..

    Once it is done, make an ISO out of this with imgburn or nero. mount, enjoy..

    Wait..you mount bdrom.iso where? You don't have a BD player and the original BD disk? If so, sorry bud, wrong forum.

    If you want an .iso, don't use the AnyDVD ripper. Just use your favorite ISO creation tool right away on the original disc. This is better, as the original UDF file locations will be preserved, if the tool is clever, the layer break position will, too.

    Remember, with AnyDVD you never need to rip in the first place. ;)

    For a lot of us, that's simply not possible. What they're doing, and what I hope to try maybe today for the first time, is ripping an ISO image on their PS3(obviously without AnyDVD), transferring it to a PC, mounting it, and then using AnyDVD to decrypt it into yet another rip. In that case I would think the ripper would be a good thing to use.

    Not really. Just use your favorite ".iso creator" on the mounted image, *if* you want an .iso. If you want to extract the files, use the ripper. AnyDVD will "magically" unprotect it. Isn't AnyDVD a cool tool? ;)
    Especially for Blu-ray it is better to keep the UDF structure intact, as they interleave files on the file system level.

    (Yes, AnyDVD HD is beyond kuel!) I do find that interesting though. So, if I take and mount an ISO ripped from the PS3 which hasn't been decrypted, and then use something like CloneCD or IMGBurn or whatever to make another ISO with AnyDVD HD running, it should deprotect it AND keep the file structure in place? That's freaking sweet!!

    I never tried this myself (I avoid Blu-ray whenever I can), but I see no reason why it shouldn't.
    AnyDVD removes protection on the OS level, so as long as it can deprotect the mounted .iso (it says so in the status window) you can do anything with this image.

    I haven't tried this yet, either, but, it's been reported to work in the Doom9 forums, so, I've been anxious to give it a shot. I gotta get ubuntu installed on my PS3 and try it out.

    You got a PS3? Shame on you! Where is my foam bat?
    (I have one, too, but I have it strictly for scientific purposes. And to play Motorstorm ;) )

    HAHAHA, you missed that post. Excellent. I hid that post well from you. :D Yea, I've had it for a couple weeks now...since the price drop. I figured I'd get a 60 before they disappeared so I can give my PS2 to my daughter and still be able to run all my games on it. Note...I've not bought ONE game for the PS3 yet. My first will likely be Heavenly Sword. However, I badly wanted some Disney movies in HD and it became quite apparent to me that they were never going to be released in HD DVD format. As much as I hate to admit it, it seems that BluRay is so far winning. Screw number of sales...that's irrelevant. It's about studio support. BluRay is only missing one studio whereas HD DVD is missing 5. Content is what will sell a format. And with Sony and Disney locking up BluRay, it doesn't look overly good for HD DVD. In any case, I have both formats now so I can continue to support HD DVD when possible, and snag a few BluRay exclusives when necessary. :)

    But, even I have to admit....begrudgingly...the PS3 hardware is incredible. Truly a remarkable piece of machine.

    Wait and see... ;)

    Yes, but, now I can wait patiently. ;) Having both formats is a good thing, IMO. That way when Cars comes out on BluRay in November and my son begs me to buy it, I can do so.

    James,

    I never had any problems using my routine. I have UDF 2.5 installed on my XP system.

    Now you got me worried though. Please elaborate a bit.

    The UDF structure on the disc is only important, if you want to burn to a BD disc and play it back on a standalone (or the PS3).
    Some BDs heavily use filesystem interleaving (poor man's multi angle?), for example the "Incubus" BD has some titles "perforated" into more than 100 chunks.
    This shouldn't matter if you play from harddisk, it might be a problem when playing from optical media because of slow seek and positioning times.

    Ahh, OK, thanks.

    Since I have nothing BD at the moment I have nothing to worry about.

    HD DVD rules! :D
