Re: broken MOD DVD

MakeMKV cannot do what you're asking for. However, there are other tools, especially if you have access to Linux. The simplest is the "dd" program on Linux, so long as there aren't any actual unreadable spots on the disk. "make dvd iso" plus your operating system will local tools for your machine. W...

Re: Stupid Question: Higest AACS Version

If you're referring to the "highest AACS", that will be found in your MakeMKV data directory (set in Preferences->General), and it will be highest-numbered "MKB_v*" or MKB2_v*" file found there. Delete all the MKB files, and the number will disappear (or is it "go to zero"? I can't remember). But th...

Re: 5.1 Audio from BluRay

By "backup", do you mean MakeMKV's backup button, or are you using the Open/Save as MKV method? If you're saving as MKV, you can extract tracks from the MKV using part of the mkvtoolnix group of programs (search engines can find the official download site). Each audio track is separate within the MK...

Re: Crashes on backup: application dump available

Yes, that would be the fastest way.

Just be aware that Mike has been a bit preoccupied with getting the UHD support expanded to more drives over the last few months.

Re: Are there separate settings for the mkv and mp4 output?

MakeMKV does not produce MP4 files; It will always output MKV files on DVD, and can either do MKV files or "Bluray file structure backup" for BDs. And it doesn't recode the video to make it smaller. Handbrake can do that, along with outputting it as an MP4. However, give the same tracks, an MP4 and ...

Re: MakeMKV - format and audio problems

DVDs are 4:3 aspect ratio by definition. Bluray is 16:9, again, by definition. The tricks to fake other layouts are in the video streams themselves, such as "non-square pixels" (anamorphic) and "letterboxing", with some hints to the player on how to make it work. On DVD, they can be stored in a seco...

Re: Revolution

No version of MakeMKV can deal with a disk that the drive cannot read. By the error messages in your log, at least one of the drives tries so hard to read the disk that it stops responding to the operating system for a while (device i/o errors).

Have you tried cleaning the disk?

Re: MakeMKV offset

First, what version of MakeMKV are you running? There two recent versions that have problems with hash checks.

And usually cleaning will "fix" hash check errors.

Not sure whether the offset is in bytes or sectors; given the file sizes, though, I think it's sectors.

Re: Little help with audio tracks

It can be - depends on how the disk is authored. Is the DTS track a DTS-HD track? Inside of the DTS-HD tracks is a "lossy" DTS track. For compatibility, MakeMKV will separate the lossy track out as its own.

The same happens with "TrueHD"; You will also have an AC3 track available.

Re: Stupid Question: Higest AACS Version

Were there other errors shown before the key error? You are correct that Toy Story should rip with no issue, but sometimes there are errors reading the start of the disk, which is where the key information is stored. The "Highest AACS version" indicates the highest version of AACS that MakeMKV has s...

Re: Problems Backing-up Big

If it's the USB power, plugging into USB2 isn't going to fix the issue. USB2 is more than fast enough to absorb the data coming off the optical disk at the maximum speed of the drive... but the drive takes more power the faster it spins. Depending on the drive, the port(s) you plug into must be able...

Re: Problems Backing-up Big

Two possibilities. Given the errors, you're probably using a USB-powered drive. It is quite common for USB drives to run out of power (not enough power from the port they're plugged into) when the ripping speed gets too fast. The drive shuts down, then the operating system says it can't talk to it, ...

Re: StudioCanal Early Hitchcock Set

For some of us, VLC started to slide into unfavorable territory when 2.x was released. Too many things stopped working that were working in 1.x.

I haven't tried 3.x yet. 2.x does well enough for me to find which audio/subtitle tracks to use in handbrake.
