Re: Anna (2019) - Which Playlist?

I just wanted to say how much I appreciate the community of people here who take the time to come and post their findings and help each other figure out which track is the right one. :D

Chick Fight: Another Cursed Redbox Exclusive

I rented "Chick Fight" on Blu-ray today and just like with "Ana", the Redbox disc is unreadable in any of my three DVD drives. One of them is very old which someone said worked for Ana, but no dice here. Anyone else seeing the same issue? I'm going to ask for a refund and try again with another disc...

Re: Ava 2020 - Cant recognize disc

What a strange situation this is! I rented Ava, ripped it, watched it once, then deleted the file as per normal. Then a few weeks later I purchased it from Redbox for a mere $3.99 (love that used disc pricing!) and like many here, couldn't rip it. I have a new Libredrive and an ancient Asus drive, a...

2020 Guide for Java?

Last weekend I wiped my iMac to the bare metal and installed Big Sur. I'm enjoying the clean experience so far, but when I tried to rip the Blu-ray for "Ava", MakeMKV couldn't open the disc at all. I've never seen such odd behaviour from the app in fact - it will try to scan the disc, then eject it ...

Re: Midway 2019 4K (new BD-J protection?)

I watched 504 next to the physical disc playing on an Xbox One X. It matched, chapter beginning to chapter beginning on each player. You are a scholar and a gentleman for doing that. I appreciate people so much that take the time to figure things out when I get a disc and don't know what to rip! :D

Re: The Divergent Series Blu-ray Digital Copy

MakeMKV found the correct play lists for me on its own. If you have Java installed already, there's no need to ask; the correct title will be listed near the top I wish that were true, but I ripped the ones MakeMKV flagged and on Insurgent at least, got the wrong version. Had to watch it off the Bl...

Re: Can't rip John Wick 3 UHD Disc

Well, wouldn't you know it, I tried the same drive and same disc on Windows and it works just fine. Is Windows more tolerant of things that MakeMKV on macOS is not? :?

Re: Can't rip Anna UHD: "Fatal program error occurred"

Hey spl147: for the record, I rip the rental, watch it once, then delete the file. I'm not a content pirate, I'm simply time-shifting the viewing window. :mrgreen:

Can't rip John Wick 3 UHD Disc

I've been using a LibreDrive for a few months, purchased from a seller here, and it's worked quite well at ripping 4K discs. Sadly, I can't get John Wick 3 to rip no matter what I try. I was able to copy the entire ~80 GB disc to a local drive, so despite the hardware error below, I don't think it's...

Can't rip Anna UHD: "Fatal program error occurred"

I'm trying to rip a Redbox copy of Anna in UHD, using a Libre-flashed drive that has been working great for over a month with all 4K discs, but this disc is basically crashing MakeMKV. Here's a screenshot of what I'm seeing (I had to make the URL below "code" so the forum software wouldn't truncate ...

Welcome to the club. Purchased two different copies of Avengers Endgame off of Amazon and both errored.
For the record, I purchased Endgame in 4K from Amazon and it ripped OK. Maybe I dodged a bullet. :shock:

Re: Star Trek: Into Darkness UHD Won't Rip

The second copy of Into Darkness ripped just fine :shock: - so it looks like even though both were brand new, never-been-touched copies of the movie, the first had some sort of disc issue that caused errors with MakeMKV. I tried the step with the first disc of copying the files manually, and it fail...

Re: Star Trek: Into Darkness UHD Won't Rip

OK - I returned the whole package to Amazon and requested a swap. I'm hoping that the next set will rip properly. :?
