"A little help: I’ve just bought my first 3D Blu-ray and I want to backup it 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 menu’s 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."

Part 2: Copy 3D Blu-ray Disc and Folder

"Can I burn 3D blu-ray's to HDD and still get 3D playback? - I burn all of my blu-rays to my HDD because it's just easier to find and access the one I want/need. Like the title says I'm trying to find out if I can burn my 3D blu-ray's to my HDD and still get 3D playback on them to my TV via my HDMI connection. If so, how exactly would I go about burning them (if there is a certain way), and is there any special software or anything I'll need to play the blu-ray's back through to do this? I use VLC to play them back for the time being, I'm just not sure if that will work in regards to 3D. Thanks for the help."
