Re: Grainy Blu Ray Rips

I suspect this is in fact an issue with MakeMKV for Mac as I have found references in several other forums to this exact behavior for MakeMKV for Mac, which always get written off as "it's supposed to look grainy". I have ripped hundreds of movies on my Mac using MakeMKV -- and they all look identi...

Re: Wreck-It Ralph - which .mpls?

Folks, I am not seeing a difference with signage with the two versions. can you reference a comparison of time into the movie where the signage is different? Also, be careful, I heard that they can re-arrange the order of scenes in the mutliple version MPLS file. Can someone conform this for me? I ...

Re: Wreck-It Ralph - which .mpls?

I don't recall which one I picked, but if this disc is like other recent Disney releases, the only difference between the two is that one has signage (within the movie) in English, and the other in a different language (most likely Spanish).

Re: Rip Speed never exceeds 2.0X - trial limitation?

This certainly has nothing to do with trial vs. paid. Others have noticed this as well, and it seems to happen most often with Pioneer drives that are capable of ripping much faster than 2.0X. IIRC, it's some kind of weird issue between MakeMKV and certain Pioneer drives. Windows users reported the ...

Re: Problem with all Blu rays.

Also, what are some recommended (under $100) internal drives I should be looking at, in case I want to go there? Maybe I should be looking at something OEM, that doesn't need added software. You may be interested in the discussion on this thread. It starts out about the Pioneer 206, but talks about...

Re: Pioneer BDR-206DBK Optical Drive - Anyone else use it?

I have since taken the Pioneer out of service and it now resides in a storage closet. A total waste of close to $300.00! Probably needs a firmware update, but there is no way to do this with a Mac. It's unlikely to need a firmware update. Far more likely is that it's malfunctioning, and requires re...

Re: skipping/jumping chapters. please help

so basically find the title with the right running time and that's it? Not necessarily. It is possible for a title to have the correct running time but still be the wrong title. Look for the correct title number and then confirm the running time matches. In the example linked above (for the U.S. re...

Re: Problem with all Blu rays.

Tried it again, after 20 minutes of rip, then all halted for 4 hours. :?: The delays I was referring to are on the order of 10 seconds up to a couple minutes at most. Seems like this might be a hardware problem, given that you haven't been able to rip a single blu-ray. If you have access to another...

Re: skipping/jumping chapters. please help

Liam,

Don't know if you noticed, but my post with guidance on doing this and a link to the AVS forum has shown up finally. (Scroll up to find it.) Also, it looks like Smithcraft had a post show up as well covering the same topic.

Good luck,

Re: "Scsi error - MEDIUM ERROR" for Pirates of the Caribbean

Thanks for your answer. As i said above: The discs looks fine and plays perfectly as well... Only makeMKV has problems with it Playing well in a regular blu-ray player does not mean the disc isn't dirty, scratched or defective. A regular blu-ray player can 'ignore' minor defects in the disc and con...

Re: "Scsi error - MEDIUM ERROR" for Pirates of the Caribbean

[Answer copied/pasted from another recent thread.] These are all possible explanations: 1. Dirty disc. Clean carefully and try again. 2. Scratched/damaged/defective disc. Exchange for a new disc. 3. Dirty, damaged or misaligned blu-ray drive. Try a different drive. NOTE: Due to the index of refracti...

Re: Problem with all Blu rays.

I don't know if this is what's happening to you, but it's a possibility. When blu-rays use seamless branching, the speed of the rip will vary during the rip. It will start at a particular speed, then ramp up. When it hits a branch point, it will slow down considerably and (in some cases) drop to 0x....

Liam,

I posted some guidance on the other thread, but the post is (once again) being held until a moderator can approve it, because it contains a link. Eventually you'll see my reply on your skipping/jumping chapters thread.
