"A little help: I’ve just bought my first 3D Blu-ray and I want to backup 3D Blu-ray movies to my PC’s HDD. I typically used some Blu-ray ripper software and converted a normal Blu-ray to the drive with no problems. It keeps all the menus and movie intact. However, I’m not able to do the backup with a 3D Blu-ray. A point in the right direction as to what software to use to rip the 3D disc would be greatly appreciated. I won’t be buying any more 3D discs unless I can figure out how to rip them successfully. Thanks in advance for your help."
