Backup Blu-ray Discs With BD-RB

Blu-ray Rebuilder (BD-RB) is a relatively new program for making backups of commercial Blu-ray (BDMV) releases. It is something of a successor to the very successful DVD Rebuilder (DVD-RB), which has a reputation as one of the best DVD backup programs available. Like that earlier program, BD-RB uses a number of existing tools, along with custom written code, to make very high quality backups a reality for the average user while requiring little understanding of the underlying technology.

Beta Software Warning
BD-RB is currently in the early beta testing stage, which means there are still some bugs to be worked out. Problems backing up some Blu-ray discs are to be expected. If this is a big problem for you perhaps you should wait until a release (stable) version of BD-RB comes out before you try it.

This guide will walk you through the basic steps for installing, configuring and using BD-RB and various third party tools required to make it work. Each section covers a different aspect of using BD-RB, starting with installation and finishing with either a Full Disc or Movie-Only backup.

Considering BD-RB's beta status it's likely parts of this guide will be updated gradually as the program matures.
