Blu-ray is harder and harder to rip for more and more complex encryption mechanism. Even the so-called best available tools for decrypting Blu-ray such as MakeMKV, MeGUI, DVDFab, AnyDVD HD also will get failure in Blu-ray ripping:

“Hi, MakeMKV, MeGUI, DVDFab, AnyDVD HD won’t rip one of my blu-rays. They all get an error somewhere along the ripping process. Every now and again, one of the programs will rip successfully, but the completion bar will say it got to 94% or some arbitrary percentage. Of those programs that does rip it, the video file will have a 5 second chunk of the movie missing. Lame. I’ve ripped a few blu rays before but never have had this problem. Could it be my Blu-Ray is corrupt? Is there another decrypter/ripper I could try? Thanks in advance.”

When you can’t rip a Blu-ray, you should check out your Blu-ray drive and if your Blu-ray disc is broken. If all the conditions are fine, the main reason to prevent you from ripping Blu-rays is perhaps the Blu-ray protection.

So if your Blu-ray drive and Blu-ray disc are fine but you just can’t rip Blu-ray with MakeMKV, MeGUI, DVDFab, AnyDVD HD, it is likely because the Blu-ray protection.

Blu-ray is often protected by these scheme: AACS Encryption, BD+ Protection, Cinavia Protection, UOP, DRM, HDCP, Region codes, and MKB 61. Among all the copy-protection scheme, MKB61 is the newest Blu-ray encryption and many all Blu-ray Rippers haven’t update to decrypt it, except Pavtube ByteCopy.
