So I just finished ripping my first blu ray disc and boy did it take a while. I should have probably chosen an easier disc from my collection but instead I went with with Avatar 3D. I unchecked 3D and everything else except for all the english subtitles and audio and the whole thing still came at 30.5GB. It took about an hour and 35 mins to rip the whole thing.
I used MakeMKV and now have my 5TB HDD hooked up to my Oppo 103D and man it looks amazing. It was completely worth it.
Any suggestions on what I can do to rip a movie faster the next time I jump right back in ? I'm using a USB 3.0 Asus external blu ray burner hooked up to my Dell laptop's corresponding USB 3.0 port. My laptop has 8GB of RAM and my toshiba external hard drive is also USB 3.0.
I want to Thank everyone here for all the helpful advice which has been a lot of help especially for someone like me who's not as computer savvy to begin with
