Hi Guys there is a foreign film which I am about to buy from Germany on blu-ray which has not English subtitles so I need to rip it and add them. Yes, this is totally an obsessive thing to do, but we are geeks so hopefully you guys will understand.

If I buy the disc I was wondering if either someone might be able to do a full rip for me using AnyDVD HD + other software or lend me their blu-ray drive? It would be easier if it was an external drive but I can hook up an internal one to my PC... I have absolutely no need for one in my PC, I don't even have a DVD drive on my rig, and yes I have checked there is no other way of getting this via the dark portals and corners of the internet - the only way is to buy this german edition on blu-ray, rip the disc, then rip the english subtitles from the DVD copy I already own. <--- this is the film.

This sounds weird but it's just one of those films which I have been waiting years to come out on blu-ray but it remains an exclusive... in the last year the price for the disc has more than halved which finally covers the cost of shipping which is why I have hesitated in the past.

Little help for a clearly mental fan? Anyone?
