Re: Selling UltraHD Friendly+Official UHD drives,USB,USB C,sleep bug fix,Remote Flashing,Tested no read errors

The "-U" drive is "the wrong drive". It cannot handle BD-XL or UHD.

It's a good "plain" BD drive, though, just won't work for UHD.

Re: MakeMKV not loading DVD

"Not loading" can mean many things. Does MakeMKV say "NO DISK" after the disk stops spinning? That's the operating system saying it could not find a usable file system on the disk. That could be an issue with the drive, or the disk could just be formatted differently. Is the disk one of those "DVD+C...

Re: A single chapter from a .ISO image is not working

MakeMKV does not normally rip by "chapters"; it rips titles.

Re: Right aspect ratio, but zoomed out?

There are ways to "fix" the issue, but it comes down to choices the disk author made. There are two places on a DVD that the aspect ratio can be stored, and they both should match... But "should" doesn't mean "does". MakeMKV chooses to use one of them, which may be incorrect. Someone should pop in i...

Re: Veronica Mars Season 1 Disc 5

Your drive says it can't read parts of the disk. First step is cleaning the disk.

Re: Right aspect ratio, but zoomed out?

Welcome to the world of anamorphic vs. non-anamorphic. DVDs are basically 720x480, and to get 16x9 there are a few choices. Shrink the height and leave the width alone, or leave both alone but tell the player that the pixels are wider than they are high. The former is the way it was originally done,...

If you're asking my opinion, I consider bitcoin and similar "currencies" to be fairy dust. It only works if you believe it works.

Re: Forced Subtitle Only Selection Rule

It is fine to leave both checked - I do it all the time. My selection rule is "all tracks", no language filter (sometimes tracks are mislabeled). The worst thing that will happen is seeing messages about the empty subtitle track being removed. And, if you happen to find a movie that uses forced flag...

Re: Forced Subtitle Only Selection Rule

If you select both, you will almost certainly end up with ONE track, as the "forced only" track will be deleted as empty. This is because use of forced subtitle flags are rare. I know of one movie (Avatar) that does it; I've heard of a couple of others. The usual scheme is that there are two tracks ...

Re: Two macs, and two different results.

"Backup" and "make MKV files" are two separate functions. Which are you trying to accomplish? The big one that looks like a disk drive and "spins" when a disk is loading, will open the disk and give you a list of titles to select for conversion to MKV files. The Backup button will copy the directory...

That depends on what buttons you click on.

The Backup button will copy the directory structure of the disk to a directory on your drive...

Re: Robot Carnival won't rip with Audio

MakeMKV has no specific problem with LPCM audio; I rip disks with both 16- and and 24-bit LCPM regularly (yes, usually anime).

Are you attempting to convert the LPCM to something else during the rip?

Re: Shine A Light

On multiple attempts, does it always fail at the same offset, or "in the area"? When doing a backup, the drive usually isn't sent off to random places, so seeks should go to legal parts of the disk. Breaking at the same offset each time could point to a defect in the disk. Things like this can happe...
