Create ISO Backups

Post by g0ren »

Hello, I like to make full disc backups of all my Blu-rays and DVD's. MakeMKV makes DVD's into ISO files, but Blu-ray's into BDMV folders, which I then have to use something like Keka to turn into an ISO file. ISO's are a bit more convenient for my use and I'd like to skip the conversion step, so I'm wondering if there's a setting in MakeMKV to make Blu-ray's into ISO's directly? I couldn't find anything poking around in the settings.

You're correct. ISOs for DVDs and BDMV folders for blu-rays and UHDs. There's no setting to let MakeMKV create ISOs for blu-rays; you have to use another program to convert.

Is there a way to request the feature for a possible future version, or have the devs already explained why they won't implement it?

Posting on the forum is probably the best way to request the feature be added. If Mike has explained himself on this topic, I'm not aware of it (but there are a lot of posts on this forum that I've never read).
