Very simple solution :)
Format your HDD to NTFS system, cause FAT32 cant support files over 4Gb.

One of the most important yet overlooked elements of PC maintenance is data backup. If you do not perform regular backups, chances are your productivity will eventually suffer from data losses or a failed Windows installation.

All versions of Windows after 3.1 ship with a free backup utility called Microsoft Backup. It is not the best backup program available, but it may be sufficient for your needs. (Backup is better in later versions of Windows. Microsoft recommends Win98/Me users purchase a third-party utility.) If you want more control over your backups, consider purchasing a third-party program.

Backup is part of the System Tools utility. However, Setup does not install it by default in Win98/Me/XP Home. If you cannot locate Backup, visit the Microsoft support site and query for article No. 152561 (Win98), No. 264541 (WinMe), or No. 302894 (WinXP Home).

In Win98/Me, click Start, select Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and click Backup. To create and run a backup, click the Create A New Backup Job radio button and click OK. Follow the prompts to create a full or partial backup. If you want to create a backup set and run it later or run an existing backup set, open Backup and click the Open An Existing Backup Job radio button and click OK. You can now access the main Backup dialog box.

In Win2000/XP, navigate to the System Tools utility and select Backup. Click the Backup Wizard button. If you do not see a Backup Wizard button, click the Welcome tab. In WinXP, the wizard will start automatically if you are in wizard mode. Follow the prompts to create your backup set.

When you reach the last dialog box, Completing The Backup Wizard, you can click the Advanced button to create a backup schedule (this option is not available in Win98/Me). When you reach the When To Back Up dialog box, select the Later radio button and click the Set Schedule button. Perform data backups on a schedule that is appropriate to the importance of your files (once a week is a common timeframe). You should also perform a system backup at least once a month.

If you do not want to use the wizard, or you are working with an existing backup, open Backup and click the Backup tab to access the main Backup dialog box.

How to rip Blu-ray DVD on Mac for Free


Now that Blu-ray players are becoming more common in the living room, so are the Blu-ray DVD movies we watch on them. To rip a Blu-ray disc on Mac, you need an External Blu-ray Writer to enable your Mac read Blu-ray disc, and then downloaded the free MakeMKV beta to extract video and audio files from Blu-ray DVD to your hard drive, preserving the full quality of your Blu-ray DVD movies.

Rip Blu-ray DVD movies to MKV on the Mac

Connect external Blu-ray writer to your Mac and launch MakeMKV, and the software immediately found my USB-connected drive, and let me read the Blu-ray disc inside.

It then will present you with a list of titles, each with a file size next to it. The first title was the main movie—easy to tell because it listed the number of chapters and also displayed the largest file size of the group.

Clicking the disclosure triangle next to that title shows the various audio and subtitle tracks contained in the movie, and let you deselect those you don’t want. Then click the Make MKV button and a MKV file will be on your hard drive when the conversion is done.

Play ripped Blu-ray movies on Mac

MakeMKV basically strips the copy protection from movies and then copies them into an MKV container. The result is a perfect copy of the movie, at its original frame size and data rate, which I was able to play on my Mac Pro using the free VLC media player.

Convert ripped Blu-ray movies to MOV, MP4, AVI, FLV, WMV and more

If you want to edit Blu-ray movies on Mac, share it with your friends, or upload your Blu-ray movies to iPod, iPhone, and more, you can use Mac Video Converter to convert your Blu-ray movies to any format of your choice. This easy to use Mac Video Converter converts ripped Blu-ray DVD movies quickly, and it provides a wide range of useful presets for iMovie, iDVD, iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, PSP and many popular mobile phones.

If you want to directly rip Blu-Ray to various video formats for playback on your Apple TV, Xbox, or mobile digital media devices. Please Use Blu Ray Ripper.

this software in my own experience is not very user friendly. I recommend getting on a torrent site and trying different DVD software instead actually. Unless you purchased a key, then click on help, and there you should be able to enter your key code to activate in the 'About' section or Register.

Video: MPEG1/2/4, WMV9, AVI (MPEG4, Xvid, AVC), H.264, MKV, MOV (MPEG4, H.264), Subtitle SRT (UTF-8)

Step 1
Download, install and run this Blu-ray ripping software

Right below the file list you could find "Subtitle" and "Audio" droplist, where you can set output subtitles and dubbings to the languages you like.

Error message, There is not free space...........


this is nothing to do with the writer, the space it is refering to is your c drive hard drive space. When a dvd burns a video or photos etc, it has to write the image of whatever you are getting it to write it to your hard drive first, then when all the files are checked and encoded it will only then burn to the dvd disc. Your problem is you do not have enough free space on your hard drive for this to happen, that is why an error is reported. A dvd needs atleast 5GB of hard drive space to encode it first then burn it so check in the properties of your C drive to see how much space you have left, a minimum of 10GB is recommended.

Method of reserving TrueHD audio and DTS Master Audio while backup blu-rays on...


Because of their wonderful and excellent acoustical properties, Dolby TrueHD audio and DTS-HD Master Audio can always provide people with amazing high-definition surround sound experience and put you right in the middle of the action. To experience the full potential of Blu-ray discs, people prefer to reserve the two terrific audio tracks while backup Blu-ray movies. The thing is that most Blu-ray programs are not good at recognizing both of the special audio tracks, fortunately, there are also some Blu-ray rippers have successfully added powerful support for Dolby TrueHD audio and DTS-HD Master Audio ,Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper for Mac is one among them. If you are a Mac user, and looking for a program to help you keep TrueHD audio or DTS-HD Master Audio of your Blu-ray movie, as well as let audio and video match well during the process of copying, then this one is a nice choice.
Following contents will take TureHD audio as an example, and show you how to have access to Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper for Mac to reserve your preferred audio track in detail. Hope you can get what you need from it Step 1: Load Blu-ray movies
Click "DVD Folder" or "IFO File" to import Blu-ray files.

Step 2: Select Dolby TrueHD audio, output format and specify save path
Tick off whatever .m2ts streams you want to copy. Generally speaking, select the .m2ts video stream with the longest playing time will be OK, because it is the main movie of the Blu-ray. Of course, if you would like to copy the extras of the Blu-ray movie, you can select several .m2ts files at a time, and check "Merge into one file" to combine them all to be as a single file.
Click the drop-down list of "Audio" option, then a list of audio tracks will be presented, and normally, the first one should be Dolby TrueHD, if in doubt, you can play them one by one to check which one is the proper Dolby TrueHD audio track you want.
Meanwhile, you should select output format from the drop-down list of "Format", here I choose "MKV HD Video (*.mkv) for instance, or if you just need copy Blu-ray movies without any quality loss and changing video format, you can select "Copy" and then "Directly Copy". After that, click "Browse" button to specify where to store the output files, if not, the program will export the output file to the default save path automatically, and these files can be easily found via clicking "Open" button as soon as copying work is completed.

Step 3: Set advanced settings
Click "Settings" button, and then you can adjust audio and video parameters such as video and audio codec, aspect ratio, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate, and audio channels on the interface showing below. To keep Dolby TrueHD audio to full extent, 6 channels is your choice.

Step 4: Start Blu-ray ripping
As soon as the above mentioned settings are finished, now just click "Convert" button to start [url=http://www.pavtube.com/blu-ray-ripper-mac/]Blu-ray ripping[/url], the ripping info including ripping process, time elapse, estimated left time, estimated file size, and generated file size are all shown clearly on the following window. In that way, you can make good control of your disk space as well as your time during the ripping process.
