Recently, some users left us the message that they have the difficulty to play the Blu-ray disc since they have no proper Blu-ray drive on their computer. But they have heard that PS3 has the capability to load Blu-ray disc and they are not sure about this news. Can PS3 support Blu-ray or can PS3 rip Blu-ray or PS3 copy Blu-ray to the hard drive?

Part 1: Can I Use PS3 to Copy and Backup Blu-ray
PS3 is not only a gaming console for game lovers, but also it can be served as a multimedia player that supports both Blu-ray and DVD discs. PS3 has a built-in Blu-ray drive as well as a hard drive that can be able to store many media contents in the limited sizes. But now if you don’t want to load the Blu-ray disc each time you would like to view the Blu-ray content, instead, you prefer to copy the Blu-ray disc to the hard drive of PS3. Is this possible for PS3 to complete the whole copy process?
Actually, without any conversion tools, PS3 doesn’t have the capability to copy and backup any Blu-ray content. What’s more, not all the Blu-ray contents can be copied since most of them have been protected with the disc encryption which is to prevent them from being copied illegally. On the other hand, PS3 is not a video conversion tool; instead, it can only be used to a player to play the Blu-ray discs. Therefore, it is not possible for PS3 to copy and backup Blu-ray without any video conversion tools.
