It’s becoming very common these days for people to “back up” their Blu-rays onto some portable hard drive. This despite the fact that the exact legality for making backups is murky at best. But my own personal opinion is that “if you own it, you can do what you want with it”. Moreover, migrating movies on physical Blu-ray disc to portable hard drive is simple convenience of bring them with you so that you can enjoy the Blu-ray moves on Samsung audio video unit whenever via USB port instead of heavy Blu-ray player.

Then, how do you copy Blu-ray movies to portable hard drive for your Samsung audio video unit? Which programs are the best at ripping those disks? The following is the best tool to consider.

I will show my love for Pavtube BDMagic. This is a intuitive cross-platform tool to rip Blu-rays. It is simply a case of entering the disk, and then point and click. Choose whether you want subtitles or not. Choose your language. Deselect everything you don’t need. Then let Pavtube BDMagic do its work. There are some tips you must know:

> It automatically detect the main title of the Blu-ray movies to copy, you don’t need to check the chapter by yourself.
> You should determine the output format on your own in “Format” drop-down list. It provides hundreds of video/audio formats, like H.265, M3U8, MP4, MKV, MOV, M4V, etc.
> Please note every icon on the interface, like “Subtitle” under the chapter list, the “Settings” next to the “Format”, and “Forced Subtitle” choice near the “Subtitle”. All of them can give your surprise in Blu-ray to portable hard drive conversion.
> If your ultimate playback device is Samsung video audio unit, you should note the “TVS” profile where offers you the optimized preset for Samsung TV.

Quick to learn Forced Subtitle: Forced subtitle is the subtitle appearing on screen when the characters speak a foreign or alien language, or there is a sign, location, or other text in a scene which needs to be explained but cannot be translated in the localization or dubbing.
