Can a $1000 range Oppo blu-ray player backup blu-ray disc to external Harddisk?

I have a blu-ray that has wedding video and want to back it up. I don't have a computer with a blu-ray player. My family member has a Oppo blu-ray player and should be around $1000 range kind. Does it have a function to create ISO or any kind of format and store it in external harddisk? If this is not an option, any suggestion for me to backup this blu-ray? Thanks.

all you need is a computer with a blu ray burner to back it up. NO stand alone player will do what you want...

Is it that hard for a stand alone player to do that? It seems like it is not hard to do the programming job to do that while there is a blu-ray player and usb plug in the stand alone player....while it is a $1000 player...

Much cheaper to just buy a USB Blu-ray burner and use it with any existing computer you have access to. A Pioneer 6x BDXL drive would run about $130 but I'd wait until they get updated with AACS 2.0, the 4K copy protection standard. If only care about vanilla DVD and BD, then there is a regular drive for $110.

Denon AVR X7200WA, Emotiva XPR-5, Emotiva XPA-7, Sony XBR 75" 850C, Oppo UDP-203, Roku Ultra.
DefTech BP7000SC (L/R), CLR3000 (C), SM55 (FH), UIW BPZ/A (SB), UIW 75 (TM).
JBL L7 (Sur), EoSone RSR 350 (RH).

PC 2.1 setup. Emotiva Stealth 6, SVS SB16-Ultra sub, Emotiva DC-1 DAC.

Spending over $100 to just backup one blu-ray disc seem like....not logical...

Can a blu-ray player just like me make another copy of the blu-ray disc with a blank blu-ray disc?

Players can't record or burn a disc. They are players only. A player that can connect to a computer would allow you to copy the files on the original disc to the computer (assuming they aren't copy protected). There is software out there (at least some of it free) that would enable you to either convert the original content to an .iso or some other file format on a computer that would preserve the image quality. You still wouldn't have another disc though, unless you had a Blu-Ray burner.

I would suggest that you look for a local service that regularly converts film or other content sources to disc. You should be able to find one that could create your backup for you at a reasonable cost without you having to buy any equipment or learn to use any software. Or you might be able to find a computer hobbyist with the right equipment who could also perform the service. If there is a local computer club in your town, try contacting them to find such a person. For a one-time project getting someone to do the job is the way to go.

This is precisely why people buy titles via VoD hosts or utilize digital copy's acquired through registration to download the playable files. Expecting to use a SoC based BD player to back up Blu-rays is not logical either you know.

The problem is licensing. If you want to play Blu-rays you need to acquire a bunch of licenses. You can bet more than one say you cannot be used to rip content.

Best bet is to find someone with a drive on their PC, or use one of the many video services around to make you a backup copy or dump it to a thumb drive. At the very least, you can go back to your videographer and ask for another copy.

Here is three options:

1)
They make 64gb thumb drives. Fairly cheap.
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/emtec-co...&skuId=5461034
That's the problem with bluray, you can only write to the disc once (and you have to have a BD-ROM or BD-RW!)
Where as USB is universal, all computers have it, and most TV's today have USB ports too!

2)
Google Drive also has 15gb storage for free. Backed up on professional grade servers and fiber backbone.
You can register as many accounts as you like, and store a multi-file archive on them, if you had to...

3)
Or you could use filezilla for a direct encrypted private FTP server:

If you need a static sub-domain address, noip will do that for free:

I need to somehow read the blu-ray disc first and then store in to whatever.
