This tutorial will also give you step-by-step guide on copying and converting Blu-ray movies on external hard drive for watching on mobie devices with AC3 5.1 surround sound. 

Do you want to backup Blu-ray to external hard drive for enjoyment anytime anywhere? You may ask me why I need to do that, here I will give my situation:

As a matter of fact, l have a daughter with a disability who damages the Blu-ray's biting them, then I think if I backup my blu-ray to external hard drive as soon as I bought it, I can freely play them repeatedly. In that case, I have a question now, is there any easy way to copy my entire bluray collection fast with surround sound?

After searching and testing, I find some answers, and I think the best solution I recommend is to use Pavtube BDMagic to convert my Blu-ray to playable format for full HD enjoyment. I've found the quality to be excellent, and see no difference when compared to playing the discs themselves. The sound can be kept with the original Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound. Mac version is Pavtube BDMagic for Mac.
