I put a movie DVD in my computers DVD drive.
I clicked on "Load from disc" then it showed me the word "none".
For some reason it does not recognize my DVD drives on my computer.
I tried both DVD drives (one was a blu-ray drive).

Did anyone else have this problem?

Brian, same issue here. Won't do DVDs. The good news is that you can get good DVD rippers for free. Trying doing a search for Winx DVD Ripper Platinum giveaway. I put a link to them yesterday and my comment (along with MANY others, was removed.

Running Windows 10 Pro Insiders Preview on computer with 32 GB of RAM and i7 processor. Program loaded and registered with no problems. Selected "Load From Disc" > "[N:\] EMPIRE_STRIKES_BACK". Then selected "All Movies" since some rippers do not properly recognize the correct movie among the various files on the disc. Received error "Unable to read this disc". I then watched the blu-ray movie to ensure that it was readable. After that, I reloaded the movie with the option "Main Movie" selected and received the same error. Restarted the process with Return of the Jedi, option selected: Main Movie. "Return of the Jedi_Title 1" appears in the Conversion window. Conversion finished. Opened movie in VLC. Movie played. All audio tracks were present and English, English with movie description (for people who can't see the movie), and English with comments about the movie all worked. I assume that the other languages will work since the three English tracks work.

Excellent ripper, compared to Dimo BD mate, it rips commercial Blu-ray about twice as fast, and the quality is better (MKV lossless) the registration is easy, just read the readme file.

Downloaded program & ripped a one of the Star Wars bluerays. It seemed fine except for one thing: the text intro (galaxy far far away) was in Spanish (even though the audio was in English). I couldn't find any setting that would address this. Anybody else have this issue?

Reply   |   Comment by Rick  –  16 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+7)

Rick,

When you first ripped the movie, if "Main Movie" was selected in the "Load Modes" pop up, select "All Movies".
You should see some check boxes with default boxes checked. Select a different choice that has a similar running time. This should select a different video track to rip.
(My Return of the Jedi automatically selects "Title 1" (which happens to be English titles). There is also "Title 2" which has a similar running time and a "Title 3" that has a very short running time.)

I was quite pleased when I first saw this program today, as I've been looking for a replacement blu-ray ripper for some time. It installed okay on Win 7 64-bit, and I was able to rip the first blu-ray to MP4 without any problems. The second blu-ray I tried, crashed the program repeatedly when I tried to rip to MP4. I did manage to rip it to MKV, but there was no audio and the start of the ripped video was running too fast. I did notice whilst it was ripping the second Blu-ray, that it suddenly went from 1% completed to 67% - which wasn't encouraging. The third blu-ray that I've tried to rip also has no sound, is running far too fast, and isn't the full movie. I'll probably keep this program for a while in case I can get it to work on other blu-rays, but I'm very disappointed, and this program will probably end up being deleted.

This program was easy to install and register in WIN 8.1 ( I never have problems).
I tested it with an older BluRay movie, it ripped it and told me it was done. I tried to play the movie with several video players, they could not play it. I used MediaInfo and VideoInspector to examine the movie, it had NO video codecs! Uninstalled.

Reply   |   Comment by GregF  –  16 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+10)

GregF,

If it had no video codecs, you need to download the codecs. Codecs are files that are used with video players and recorders. They are not part of any converted movies.

william, I know what codecs are, I have all I need. The original disc I copied played in my PC's blu-ray player, so codecs are on my PC. I own a paid copy of Leawo Blu-Ray Copy and I wanted a backup copier-Thundersoft was not good enough.

If it helps...

The Rippers we've seen on GOTD all reencode the video on a DVD, or more rarely a Blu-ray disc, while the copy apps do just that, copy the files to a hard drive after dealing with [removing] DRM. ThunderSoft Blu-ray Ripper is more along the lines of the MakeMKV app [free while in beta, which seems to be always], copying the contents on a Blu-ray disc, but instead of storing those files in the same folder structure as on the Blu-ray disc, puts them in an MKV container. That way you don't need a specialized player that understands the Blu-ray folder structure & files. And when Thundersoft calls it lossless MKV, they mean that the Blu-ray content is not reencoded -- not that the MKV itself is lossless, because the content on the Blu-ray itself is not lossless... the original lossless 1080p video would take up several hundred GB. One benefit of putting the Blu-ray video into an MKV file is that you only have one file -- the video can be split into many .m2ts files on a Blu-ray as part of the DRM [the free tsMuxeR app will copy a Blu-ray video without DRM, merging those separate .m2ts files into one large file].

Because ThunderSoft Blu-ray Ripper does not reencode the video, you're probably looking at [very] roughly 1/2 an hour to get the new MKV file written on your hard drive, and you're looking at 20 - 50 GB -- it varies depending on the video bit rate, and thus the size of the files on the Blu-ray. Whether it's better to have the video in a MKV file rather than an original .m2ts file is up to you -- IMHO more players understand .m2ts than MKV, but could be wrong. Do note that not every player that works with MKV will play the subtitles or understand the chapters, and the same can be said for players that work with .m2ts. I've found that VLC, including mobile versions, does work with subs & chapters in a regular Blu-ray folder layout. The free SubtitleEdit can OCR subs to an .srt file that can be displayed in more players.

As noted in the ad copy, the audio & video on a Blu-ray disc can be edited &/or re-encoded. It doesn't take long if you're reducing the frame size to DVD dimensions, but 1080p at a reduced bit rate to cut down the file size does take a long time, & even 720p is not quick. AVC/H.264 [or H.265] encoding is CPU intensive, unless you use a GPU encoder, which will reduce quality, though mpg2 encoding is a Much less demanding, included in the Blu-ray specs, and while not as efficient at storing the video, can still look quite good. More importantly, it won't take nearly as long on a lower powered PC/laptop.

There is no such thing as 'lossless' compression to MKV and MP4. If the file size is smaller, something has been thrown away.

At best, a claim of 'visually lossless' might be true, depending on the display device and its size, and the users' visual acuity.

But to say "I'm going to take this Blu-Ray content which has been encoded at 25-35 Mbits, and Cuisinart it down to 10 (or even lower) Mbits and you can't see the difference because the process is lossless" is just nonsense.

Reply   |   Comment by DD  –  16 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

DD, it could mean losslessly rip the content ie copying the video and audio streams without decoding and re-encoding them, just repackaging them according to the chosen container format MKV or MP4. Thus no file size reduction assuming one keeps all the streams like multiple sound tracks and subtitile data stream and so on. I cannot test this understanding as the program will not run on the only machine I am prepared to install it on.

Doesn't work for me - does it have to be a blu-ray player? I downloaded, registered fine, and then input a DVD into my laptop's DVD player. However, when I try to use this software, it will not load the DVD (but my computer sees it fine, so I know it is there). The software is supposed to be able to "rip any Blu-ray/DVD". Is there some reason it will not load discs from a DVD player, does it have to be a Blu-ray player?

Mary, nothing written here makes it "evident" that to convert a DVD you need to use a Blu-ray player. That is, until phoe commented that he had tried it both with a Blu-ray and DVD and found that it does indeed (for some reason) need to be a Blu-ray player even to convert a DVD. And oh, let me add this, since you did ...!!!!! (No need to be nasty when you obviously did not understand the real question).

Reply   |   Comment by spacecon  –  16 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

spacecon, Obviously as the name implies "ThunderSoft Blu-ray Ripper" is a BLU-RAY ripper. not a DVD ripper. The program looks for the Blu-ray format of the dick. A DVD player will not read a Blu-ray disk, and the program will not see a DVD. Should be very obvious. I agree with Mary. ( you shouldn't be nasty as you obviously didn't understand the real use of a correctly labeled program. She just seem to think as do I you asked a dumb question.

spacecon, I retract the above comment as I was dumb and didn't fully read the description Though it does make sense to me that the program requires a Blu-ray. Sorry for my comments.

spacecon, sorry my comment was unclear. What I meant was that when I tried to rip a DVD disk, it was not recognized. Should go without saying that one needs a blu-ray player to rip a blu-ray disk. There are plenty of free DVD rippers out there that work fine.

Reply   |   Comment by phoe monroe  –  15 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

phoe monroe, thanks for the updated comment. Yes, I am aware of the many DVD rippers. I am interested in one that does good mkv conversion. I use makemkv a lot and it is a very good program.
I was interested in this software because it claims to make lossless mkv from any DVD, and that is also what the developer website states. I wanted to have a backup plan for makemkv because once in a while I run into problems with it. I have tried several other programs that claim to convert to mkv, but I have had many issues with most, including a loss of quality, audio problems, and failure to even work at all.

My thoughts now are that you still need a physical copy. I too blelieved the cloud was the very best way to watch your movies but with the closing of Ultraviolet, I am ot so sure anymore. I did some searching and found that the other services (Vudu, Movies Anywhere, etc...) are losing a lot of money streaming. It takes a lot of data to stream a movie and I now fear that the cloud movie idea may be changing a lot soon. We may start to see ads along with our movies or they may start to charge us fees in order to pay for the high costs that they are incurring. I may be wrong, but a physical copy would sure be nice "just in case".

Derek, same here under Vista SP2+ It's one of the most useless Error alert boxes I've seen... how much work would it have taken the developer to name the DLL that it failed to load and give a reason why it failed... like procedure not found in such and such DLL ...

Uninstalld here too.

Installed & registered fine. Looks fairly basic with only MKV (lossless) & MP4 (lossless) as the available outputs. It doesn't not look like you can edit the file in any way (you cannot just convert a clip as with most rippers). Took about 45 minutes to rip one film, with an output file of 16.8GB (MP4).

Reply   |   Comment by Mark  –  16 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+7)

Mark, agreed, very basic ripper, hence the low price. Took around 20 minutes to rip 'The Other Woman', a 24 GB movie (pretty quick to me). If all you want is a basic blu-ray ripper, this can't be beat. For a lifetime deal of $9.99 not bad, IMHO.

phoe, should have added that one's GPU determines the speed of the rip, especially if you're ripping using the HEVC (H.265) codes.

Does it overcome copy protection techniques?

Reply   |   Comment by tester  –  17 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

tester, Since no one has alerted us that its an expiring license I'd wager it does not try to circumvent DRM on commercial Blu-ray discs since that usually requires regular access to an online server to get the latest DRM cracking algorithms and that would require ongoing technical and server commitments by the vendor.

A few comments that have survived moderation so far seem to report missing sound tracks or missing video tracks in the ripped content so it is likely those specific streams may have been DRM protected so were not included in the ripped content. Of course I could be wrong in my reasoning :-)
