Tutorial of Passkey for Blu-ray
Passkey for Blu-ray is a Windows-based Blu-ray Decrypter that works on-the-fly to unprotect encrypted Blu-ray movies. It can remove all known AACS and BD+ copy protections, Region Code, BD-Live, UOPs, MKB V18 and newest MKB V19 for Blu-ray. The unprotected Blu-ray discs can be accessed by all backup softwares and Blu-ray software players such as DVDFab Blu-ray Copy, DVDFab Blu-ray Ripper, PowerDVD, TotalMedia theatra 3, WinDVD, etc. It also allows to make a connection with third-party tools, like ImgBurn and Nero Recode.
Step 1) Setup
Please download installer file of Passkey for Blu-ray at http://www.dvdfab.com/passkey-for-blu-ray.htm and our wizard will guide you through the installing process.
Step 2) Start up
Start up DVDFab Passkey, the following welcome screen will appear, choose Blu-ray option, click on "Start DVDFab Passkey" button, DVDFab Passkey will minimize to the system tray.
Insert your Blu-ray movie disc to the Blu-ray optical drive, specify the Blu-ray disc's region code ( you can find it on the back of the box), this will remove Blu-ray region code to allow playback regardless of region setting of the blu-ray player.
Here Passkey is automatically opening and removing protections from this disc. You can trail from the pop-up window with processing bar as below.
You can also check how many protections and which ones Passkey found and removed in Settings/Info window.
Step 3) Play the unprotected blu-ray disc
After done with the decrypting process, you will get the unprotected disc in your drive, which can play with Blu-ray players like PowerDVD, WinDVD, etc.
Step 4) Rip to Hard Drive
There is an easy and quick way to rip this blu-ray to Hard disk drive as Folder or ISO imge file, there will be no compression involved, just 1:1 copy with just several simple clicks.
Note: Please make sure there are enough free spaces at least 50Gb in your save location, if you are ripping one BD50 blu-ray movie and there is only about 30GB free spaces left, there will be a popup message asking you to change another hard drive as the target point.
Here we change to D:\ drive, start the ripping process.
When it's done, you can follow BDMV/STREAMS directory to play the largest .m2ts in VLC or MPC-HC. Since we have set D:\ as the target at the beginning, we will go to D:\DVDFab\AUSTRALIA\BDMV\STREAM to play the .m2ts files.
If you have ripped the blu-ray to ISO image file, then download and install DVDFab Viritual Drive to mount this ISO file and play with your software player like PowerDVD, VLC, MPC-HC, etc. Hope you enjoy!
