I am a registered user of Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate (now called Wondershare UniConverter) and I was under the impression I could copy my Blu-rays with it. I own each of them and I want to put them on a thumb drive for my own use, nothing sinister or nothing being sold. We travel and its easier to carry a 3TB drive with all my Bluray DVD movies.

I insert my Blu-ray discs and start to ripping Blu-ray with Wondershare UniConverter and I get into trouble for the very first step of loading the Bluray disc. I get the error message that reads: “Invalid DVD Folder”.

I think it may be a disc issue and try another one, only to find it comes with the same error message. Also, I have tried my troubleshooting steps on this post but it doesn’t see any IFO files in a Bluray disc. It seems Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate does not support Bluray ripping at all but is there a Wondershare Blu-ray Ripper?

I then contact Wondershare for help and the answer breaks my heart:

We can only support common DVD’s and not Blu-ray due to the fact that there are several layers of digital rights management (DRM) which restricts the usage of the Blu-ray. This is done to prevent the copying of copyrighted content.

So, the answer to the question “Does Wondershare Support Bluray Ripping?” is a big short NO.

What do you need a Blu-ray Ripper do for you?

Wondershare always gives me great results in DVD ripping, video converting, video editing and YouTube downloading (especially for FIFA World Cup 2018 videos in Russia) and I keep recommending Wondershare to everyone. However, it is really a pity that Wondershare does not support Blu-ray ripping.

I see there are quite a lot Bluray rippers in the market but which one is able to fulfill my needs? Generally, a Bluray ripper must do the following things for me:

  1. Support protected Bluray
  2. Rip Blu-ray discs to MP4 for iPhone/iPad/Apple TV or other possible formats for smart TVs

Best Bluray Rippers to Fulfil Your Needs of Ripping Blu-ray disc

I have tested a couple of Bluray rippers, however, I found some of them just don’t work on protected Bluray discs like Xilisoft and Sothink Blu-ray Ripper. You may have to use third-party plugins so as to rip protected Blu-rays. Here I’d like to recommend you THREE for protected Blu-ray ripping, including removing Blu-ray region code.

Leawo Blu-ray Ripper is the top Blu-ray Ripper for both Windows and macOS users and it is able to handle the latest Blu-ray protection of AACS, BD+, and MKB and Leawo keeps updating it so users won’t worry about the latest protections.

Leawo Blu-ray Ripper provides a wide range of output formats as well as devices to meet different users’ needs. It is even able to rip 4K and 3D Blu-rays to normal MP4, AVI, M4V, WMV, MKV for playback or editing on HDD or playback on devices like Apple TV, iPad/iPhone, smart TVs, Android phones, etc.

The Edit function of Leawo Blu-ray Ripper is basic but works well. The built-in Blu-ray player is a bonus and it supports 2D to 3D Blu-ray ripping for your VR headsets.

AnyMP4 Blu-ray Ripper is an all-in-one Blu-ray ripping solution that is able to rip and convert protected Bluray discs to a number of output video formats like Mp4, MKV, AVI and audio formats like Mp3, AAC, etc. Also, it decrypts and compresses Blu-ray discs to your portable devices like iPhone/iPad, Gear VR, etc.

AnyMP4 Blu-ray Ripper also works on both PC and Mac and it features the various 3D settings. And it is believed by me the true 3D Bluray Ripper.

DVDFab is really powerful in Bluray ripping and it is always the first to decrypt the latest Bluray copy protections and it supports the latest Bluray protection of AACS and BD+ and Blu-ray discs from region A, B and C. It only takes about a day or so for DVDFab to update itself to keep up with the latest protection.

Bluray Passthrough is one of the unique features in DVDFab, with which you are able to remux Bluray to MP4/MKV/M2TS without converting, meaning what you will get keeps the original Bluray video quality! 3D MKV is also supported as you can see below:

Passthrough Profiles

Besides, DVDFab supports different video and audio formats and devices and it is rich in options like custom file names.

The three programs work to rip protected Blu-rays. AnyMP4 and DVDFab are a bit expensive and it only rips Blu-ray but the 3D ripping feature impresses me. Leawo Blu-ray Ripper also works for DVDs and it provides good results as well. They are recommended and my final recommendation is you try the programs first before you make up your own decision.
