Re: The program can't find any usable optical drives

Yes. Windows Defender was the offender. Specifically Makemkvcon64.exe was getting blocked. I had a feeling it was local to my machine and some change that took place without my knowing. Thanks for your help. I'm back up and ripping. YAY!!!

Re: The program can't find any usable optical drives

Looks like this one died out a few months ago. I've got the problem now. Tried several of the fixes described: Reinstall and run (nope), reinstall older version (nope), see the drive in explorer (Win 10 (64)) so reinstalled in 64 bit folder (nope). Happened right after the last update for me. Hopefu...

Re: Best External Blu Ray Drive

Thanks brellyn. You make very well be correct. But of the last 4 discs from Netflix, I received 3 difference movies with identical 1/4 inch moon shaped cracks. seriously, they're all identical and this year I have received at least 20. No one else has any trouble with these? I suppose if your setup ...

Re: Best External Blu Ray Drive

I have discovered with Netflix DVD's that the ones that fail for me have a small 1/4 inch crack on the outside edge in the shape of a half moon. I have seen it on countless Blue ray discs now and I can only deduce that it is intentional. The reason I say that is because they are always exactly the s...

Re: Not able to open some new movies

That's all it took. Updated MakeMKV and it works just fine. I'll be more mindful to update more often. Thanks again.

Not able to open some new movies

Re: Little Mermaid BD Diamond SCSI Error

I think they are up to about 50% now. About to terminate. It also crossed my mind that this was a way they could foil rippers. Most of these did work in a standard blue ray player but not in the computer. All the cracks I've seen are virtually identical. 1/4" or so moon shaped crack on the outer edg...

Re: Little Mermaid BD Diamond SCSI Error

Appreciate the help Woodstock. I did shut down and restart a couple times. I also tried several other Blue ray discs from my library which open perfectly. These are from Netflix if that makes a difference. I just received a replacement disc for the one in the initial post and it's doing the same thi...

Little Mermaid BD Diamond SCSI Error

Won't open properly and spends a huge amount of time accessing the files. Finally ended with a scsi error. This disc looks like it's in good shape. Can you make anything of the log? Error 'Scsi error - HARDWARE ERROR:TIMEOUT ON LOGICAL UNIT' occurred while reading 'BD-ROM ASUS BC-12B1ST b 1.00' at o...
