Re: Random "No disc inserted" error

"No disk" is really an operating system error - most likely originating from the drive, but I've seen it happen when a different application took control of the drive. It essentially means that the drive cannot recognize the format of a disk. Sometimes you can get more information if you have debug ...

Re: Cold Pursuit (U.S.A) PLAYLIST

Place mouse cursor in left window. Open context menu (right-click for Windows).

There is no "toggle all", but there is "select all" and "unselect all". Been there for years.

Re: Into the Spider-Verse

Do you have debug logging turned on? There are a lot of errors that don't display if you don't have debug enabled.

Re: shadow 4k uhd - failed to decrypt

Dump file won't help here - Your drive can't read the part of the disk where the AACS information is kept, so MakeMKV doesn't have any way to decrypt the data.

First step would be to clean the disk, even if it "looks perfect just took it out of the package it can't be the disk".

Re: Backup option greyed out for DVDs but not for blu ray

I've used dd on Linux to create encrypted ISOs. I'm remembering one from years or so ago called "BDLOT" make ISOs on Windows machines, with optional decryption, but it's been unsupported for about a decade.

Re: Splice two MKV files without altering audio?

You can search here for "LORD RINGS", or do a google search for "merging LOTR files". The real issue isn't the sound; it's in the chapters. FWIW, there is a Hobbit+LOTR set out there where they only have the theatrical versions, and each movie is on its own disk, not split. But most people buy the "...

Re: John Wick Chapter 2

When MakeMKV recognizes the proper file (and it did for me on JW2), it moves it to the top of the list.

Re: Forced Subtitle Only Selection Rule

"Burning in" requires something that will re-encode the video. Personal recommendation for that is handbrake . I have MakeMKV rip all audio and subtitle tracks, then use VLC to choose the ones I want, then use handbrake to encode the file to make it smaller AND include the tracks I actually want. I ...

Re: Download and install the previous version

https://makemkv.com/download/old/ Won't fix the problem; the issue is that the current version has a key that expired in March. You have to put the CURRENT beta key in. To do that, you need to set your system DATE back to late March, start MakeMKV, then you can enter the new key. The system date can...

Re: NEW OPTION: 'UHD Friendly' Firmware Downgrade / Cross-Flash Using Official (Modified) ASUS Flasher for ASUS & LG Dri

No. The USB version of the Asus is not the same drive as their internal units with "almost" the same part number. It is NOT UHD capable, and flashing the firmware will not fix that, and may make the drive unusable. The hardware doesn't support reading UHD disks. It's a good drive for regular Bluray ...

Re: Lagg/stuttering after rippning Blu-ray with makeMKV!

Processor speed is not that important when ripping. You can rip BD and UHD on machines that have no hope of smoothly PLAYING them. Playback is where you have to take into account the processor, video hardware, the video drivers, and even the display hardware. If your 4K display is only capable of 30...

Re: Forced subtitles

Subtitles is probably the MOST confusing thing done in disk authoring, because there are "too many" ways to do things. I had to learn about subtitles... 95+% of my video collection is in Japanese, and only half of that has an English dub. :roll:

Re: Is "backup" a complete backup

Backup copies the structure of the BD to disk. "Official, licensed players" like PowerDVD, are supposed to reject it because the copy protection is gone. They may play it if you do an encrypted backup. As for undoing the obfuscation, I've read a lot of different postings on this forum, and it seems ...

Re: Split (Redbox Edition) No Bonus Content!

If the retail version comes on multiple disks, it would be rare for the rental to have bonus content on the movie disk. On Netflix, bonus disks are listed as separate rentals.
