Default Backing up HD-DVD/BLU-RAY

Has anyone managed to find a way to BACKUP there HD-DVD/BLU-RAY to hard disk or even gone to the expense of buying a very expensive hd/blu ray writer and backed up to HD-R disk ?

I know a way but it isnt very simple !

Suggestions.............

I'd rather just watch my HD DVDs from the disc instead of using up 30GB/movie on my hard drives

Why not just say "pirate" instead of backup? Oh I know I know, you need backups of all your discs because as we all know they constantly fail! I have CD's from the mid 80's and 10 year old DVD's. Combined, about 2000 total discs. Not a single one has ever "failed".

"Pirate" is such an ugly word though

Makes it sound legal even if it isn't...

My reason for wanting to BACKUP my hd-dvd's and blu ray disks is simple.....firstly, my monitor even though i only purchased it 2 months ago IS NOT HDCP compatible.

So for me to watch hd and blu ray on my PC i have to remove the protection.

Nothing cheap about it as i buy the original disk and then back it up.
For now my hard disk will have to do as im not keen on paying almost 600quid for a blu ray writer and seeing as it only takes 5 min to back up then removing the files once i have seen the film i wish to see, is not a problem.

Secondly as everything else here in the UK is alomst twice as expensive as the American product i like to make sure that my 40 quid ($80) for my disk doesnt get scratched etc.

And pirating is actualy making reproductions and then selling them on..not backing up.

TY,UL & WP.
