Re: Need recommendation for new drive.

Hello all I've currently got an asus bc-12b1st bd-rom drive. It's done well for the last couple years (have ripped well over 200+ titles) but lately has been giving me trouble. I last used it a couple months ago to rip some blu ray copies of the god father trilogy and it worked fine. Today I attemp...

If you're talking about UHD Blu-ray's then the drive must have a service code of NS50 (SVC NS50)

Re: AACS 2.0 on a normal bluray?

Thinking about it though, if they did this, then all the stand-alone Blu-ray players would need to be updated and this may not be possible when it comes to AACS 2.0. There is no way that AACS2.0 can be applied to Blu-ray players. Support for older players is basically non-existent. You can count on...

Re: AACS 2.0 on a normal bluray?

I think you have to follow these instructions, if you haven't already done so. I've seen version 57 on AACS 1.0, but I wouldn't put the powers that be to implement the new AACS 2.0 on standard Blu-ray's. That would certainly put a wrench into things. Thinking about it though, if they did this, then ...

Re: Seeking hardware recommendation: External USB Blu-Ray Pl

Without a doubt this is the best drive you can get IMO: http://www.amazon.com/LG-Electronics-Su ... lg+blu+ray There is no rip-lock and it it's incredibly reliable. Also worth noting that a new version of this (not advertised by LG, but it is a slight upgrade) that will supposedly play more friendl...

Re: Seeking hardware recommendation: *internal* Blu-Ray driv

To expand Woodstock's answer, not all BDXL drives will read UHD Blu-ray's So far the only ones that I know that can are the LG BH16NS55 (a European model) and the LG WH16NS40, with a service code of N50. The problem with the LG WH16NS40 is that if you order one, you may end up with one with a servic...

Re: UHD Blu-ray

Log file of the attempted backups. There sure isn't much on that log file, did you follow the instructions in this tutorial ? /faq/item/8 According to the tutorial, I did it correctly. I agree that it's short. We'll give it a few days then, I'm sure it will be quite simple to deal with and they'll ...

Re: ripping uhd 4k the martian

I'm really sensitive to 24 fps judder _ it hurts my eyes and eventually I'll get a headache. I suspect that your eyes do not have an issue, but your brain does. :mrgreen: Does this mean you can't watch TV shows either, as all are produced at either 23.976 fps or 25 fps? but it looks like Hollywood ...

I don't think it does either, James over at SlySoft was quite adamant at times about that.

Re: SlySoft DEAD

Any decryption program for movies can and will be targeted. The more interesting part of this discussion is how Slysoft shutting down affects MakeMKV. If MakeMKV relies on the AnyDVD HD online database in any manner (the program itself or the developers), then that resource may not be around for mu...

Re: SlySoft DEAD

Hey Jeffr, contrary to your idiotic legal "theories", I actually did add something intelligent to this discussion: as has been clearly demonstrated, ANY tool that circumvents copy protections on BDs will be targeted sooner or later, irrespective of the jurisdiction the manufacturer is based in.

Re: ripping uhd 4k the martian

Rather then start a new thread, I'll post here to keep things together. A guy over at AVS got an LG BDXL drive marked with the date of March 2015, and it didn't see the UHD disc. He's reordering a new drive from Amazon.com, where so far all the drives from there can read the file from the UHD discs....

Re: SlySoft DEAD

I'll take a stab at this and if I'm wrong, one the of the moderators or someone may correct me. It could be because we are not actually making a 1 to 1 copy, but putting things in a MKV file which is open source and free. Although I think there is an option to create a full back up and I am assuming...
