Re: WH16NS40 Hash Check Errors

I guess I will see if I can send the drive back. the disc is brand new with no marks of any kind. I also tried a couple other discs and same problem. Thanks! Assuming your drive is connected externally to your iMac via USB, try double checking the USB port or the USB cable if the communication betw...

Re: DVD Drives Compatible with Mac?

So far the DVD writers I've used with the specs for Windows OS only have all worked in Mac OSX. Even when the writer manual states for Windows, the drive worked in Mac OSX I would also read the customer reviews like in Amazon to check if anyone has used the dvd drive in a Mac. Or ask the seller if h...

Re: Can't rip (or even read) "The Hunger Games: Catching fire"

SamuriHL is right, the 4K disc quality is poor. Had a 4K UHD Coco movie, the disc would not rip after the first and second cleaning of the disc. Then after the third cleaning, finally the 4K disc ripped successfully. I guess certain 4K discs are unpredictable and “sensitive”.

Re: Ultra Venom Failed to open

A month ago was able to save Venom 4K UHD successfully. Using MakeMKV v1.14.3 on an Asus drive, Mac OSX. Try cleaning the disc.

Re: Just purchased a key...

I'm a longtime beta user who decided to buy a key. Registration was flawless and easy. Activation was fast and perfect. No issues. No complaints. Carry on... Been using MakeMKV for many years and it’s worth the investment. It’s a good, reliable app. It can also detect 11+ old blu-ray and dvd drives.

Re: X-Men Apocalypse won't rip

@Recordplay. Please post the error messages that are appearing so the other expert members can check and comment. Sometimes it may be a hardware issue. It's also advisable to have 2 different brands of 4K friendly drives. Some movies may not work on a specific drive but works fine in another brand.

Re: usb to sata adapters?

That doesn't look like mine. The link you provided is for the Y-1099. Perhaps this is a newer model? Mine look like this: https://www.msy.com.au/vic/geelong/pc-accessories/16507--unitek-y-1034-usb-30-to-sata3-converter-cable.html It seems to be getting harder and harder to get.

Re: usb to sata adapters?

Does the WEme do the firmware flash ok? Lots of complaints for the Unitek on amazon. Hmm... I have 2 x Unitek Y-1034 and have flashed a heck of a lot of drives with them and have had absolutely no issues at all. Hi MartyMcNuts. To clarify, the Unitek Y-1034 USB 3.0 to Sata is the same model in this...

Re: Video quality when backing up to blu-ray discs is reduced

@PaulineSinclair. MakeMKV does not downsample the quality of the blu-ray or 4K UHD movie from my experience. Picture and Audio quality has the exact same quality compared to the disc. I’ve compared a direct playback from the blu-ray disc and a playback from a MKV file. Another way to tell is compari...

@RonJones. Maybe post the error messages you’re getting like what MartyMcNuts suggested. The experts here may be able to suggest options. PC Optical drives are different in hardware technology compared to home theatre blu-ray players. If the movie plays fine in HT blu-ray players, it does not always...

Re: Mission: Impossible Fallout UHD - Fails to decrypt

I'm new to ripping UHD BDs and just recently installed a Asus BD burner and flashed the firmware to make it UHD BD friendly. I'm using the latest beta of MakeMKV and have successuflly ripped about 10 of my UHD Blu-rays while the only one that failed to rip so far is MI: Fallout. I don't recall if I...
