Blu-ray is currently the most HD format for video. It brings High Definition to video playback streaming for eye catching visuals in crystal-clear defined and bright image display, and the quality is much better than the normal CDs and DVDs. However, it is important that the Blu-ray disc is protected and original. There may be several problems that might occur when you copy Blu-ray on Windows 8, due to hardware problem, technical connectivity problem or mostly the software problem.
First of all, make sure that an Blu-ray drive is properly connected. Regular DVD drives can not read a Blu-ray disc. Second, if the disk is being read properly then you may check the disk for any fault. However, if the disk is perfect, try disconnecting from the internet as the internet service might disrupt the movie. Last but not least, if none of these methods helps you, then you will have to select a real Windows 8 Blu-ray copy software. Check if it works well with your operating system and has the capacity to support Blu-ray.
Most Blu-ray copy programs are not highly updated and not capable of supporting advanced formats like Blu-ray. Make sure you are using a copier which has the ability to decode Blu-ray protection and backup Blu-ray without any loss in quality. I would recommend you to use Magic Blu-ray Copy, which can be fully compatible with Windows 8. Free download Magic Blu-ray Copy and install it to your PC to have a try.
