    Forgive me if this in the wrong forum.

    I Finally got around to getting a Blu-Ray drive for my PC. Obviously the prospect of grabbing damn high-res images for covers is awesome. However, the capture options in all my software players is grayed out. Anyone got an idea how to screen cap Blu-Rays??

    Any and all help appreciated.

    Nope, Cause the blu-rays are so heavly protected anytime you use capture software or a simple press of the print screen button results in just a black image being saved, not what appears on your screen

    Well, Dagon, did it work? We're dying to know!

    The black image using Print Screen is due to the video being decoded separately and laid over the screen, not copy protection. Even an MPEG-2 file played in WMP shows the same issue.
