Don't worry, the message you were replying to was a spam message, and the spammer is gone now.

Re: Chapter timing too early?

Chapter timing has a lot to do with where the nearest "full frame" occurred in the video. Some players will find that frame, and (quietly) decode to the position of the chapter marker, then start displaying. Others will simply start playing at that point.

Re: VirusTotal reports Sangfor Engine Zero for v1.15.3?

My copy of 1.15.3 didn't trip AVG.

As always, with Virustotal results, submit the executable to your trusted AV vendor's review portal. Most of them have a URL you can upload to for a specific validation.

Re: How to find my license registration for new install

You should find an email from either "avangate.com" or "2co.com", which will have your key in it.

Failing that, send an email to support@makemkv.com with your information, and Mike can look it up for you.

Re: Resident Evil collection

The date on sdf.bin is not critical to UHD, really - the file allows different capabilities, like adding speed controls for some drives, to be transferred. If you've deleted _private_data.tar, the log should show TWO downloads, "Downloading latest SDF to ...", and "Downloading latest HK to ..." If y...

Re: Resident Evil collection

The sdf.bin file that controls a lot of stuff is hosted on the same server as the forum, so it is accessible by your regional cloudflare access point. That is one of the components of _private_data.tar, which should be recreated when you start MakeMKV after deleting it. You can manually download it ...

Re: Resident Evil collection

Often the problem is with your DNS server - some DNS servers will not allow any host in the domain *.fairuse.org to resolve. If you have one of the google DNS servers, 8.8.4.4 or 8.8.8.8, in your list of DNS servers, it will usually work.

Re: Not Seeing All Titles

There is manual DVD mode for when a disk has weird formatting that MakeMKV can't figure out. I'd start out with the information requested in the FAQ link in my signature and sending it to support@makemkv.com for Mike to look at. There shouldn't be a difference between how MakeMKV sees a disk on Wind...

Re: Not Seeing All Titles

What do you have set for your minimum title length? The default is 120 seconds (2 minutes), so you won't see a lot of the small "extras" on disks.

Re: UHD volume key not found 1.15.3

It depends on how "permanent" you want the setting of the shell variable to be. If you simply type it at the command line before executing MakeMKV, it will disappear when that shell is closed. Or, you could add it to /etc/bashrc to set it for all users, or in ~/.bash_profile if you only want it for ...

Re: update mkv writing librarys

The "MKV writing libraries" that come with an operating system aren't going to have things like support for Dolby Vision, which is quite new. Maybe its an issue with obsolete MKV reading libraries?

Re: Which Drive should i buy? Pls Help :(

If your reading brought you to the ASUS BW-16D1H-U PRO, you're reading the wrong places. This drive is not capable of doing BDXL, let alone UHD. It will work well for DVD and BD, though.
