Extract defined title via shell command for erroneous DVD

Post by Johannes » Tue Nov 14, 2017 6:45 pm

Hello everybody.
By trying to extract an erroneous DVD does not lead anywhere when using the GUI in my special case. Makemkv tries to read the whole disc and failes to open it with the error message:
Fehler 'SCSI-Fehler - HARDWARE ERROR:TRACK FOLLOWING ERROR' trat auf während des Auslesens von '/VIDEO_TS/VTS_01_1.VOB' bei Offset '32768'
The first titles from #1 to #9 seem to work. Title #1 has a length of 2.5 hours - this is the title I want to extract on hard disc.

Apparently, makemkv can not focus on title #1 alone, when there is some error in some other title of the disc.

So I tried to extract only this one title via command line [MakeMKV v1.10.7 linux(x64-release)]:

Code: Select all

makemkvcon mkv --minlength=10 dev:/dev/sr0 1 ~/test
Also with this command makemkv checks for everything else left on the disc and gives out error messages. Luckily title01.mkv will be created - unluckily the file is only a couple of MBytes big and not what I wanted.

When I play the DVD with VLC the movie can be watched without any problems. The disc works (at least the parts that are needed for the movie) - how can access it with makemkv? Is there a way to find out which title is the needed one?

By using:

Code: Select all

makemkvcon mkv --minlength=10 dev:/dev/sr0 all ~/test
makemkv extracts title00.mkv to title07.mkv and then stopps.

I appreciate any help or ideas.
Thanks, regards, Jo.

Hello everybody.
It turns outs that the movie has one broken cell somewhere in the middle. VLC can start the movie and jump to the end so it looks like, everything is fine - in fact it is not.
That explaines, why makemkv cannot work.

Probably some administartor can move this thread out of here?

Sorry for the inconvenience, Jo.

Actually, you might want to submit the information to Mike that is asked for in the FAQ link in my signature - there MAY be something that can be done about it... If Mike thinks it can be worked around, he may ask you for additional information.

This is exactly what manual DVD mode is for, please see https://www.makemkv.com/manualdvd/

You will have to figure the title ID and cell IDs. For example, if title id is 12, first cell id is 1, last cell id is 33 and broken cell id is 22, the title selection string would be:

Code: Select all

12:@1-@21,@23-@33

Hi Mike.

Thanks for the answer.
I used the manual DVD mode and found out, that title 1 cell 17 is broken. I understand, that I can make an mkv file of the movie without cell 17 - so I come up with a movie with some missing minutes somewhere in the middle of it. The whole cell 17 would be missing.

Is it possible to access parts of cell 17? VLC plays the first 2 minutes of cell 17 until it hangs. Probably there is a way to make an mkv file that misses only a fraction of a second? In manual mode I can only access whole titles, right? Or can I break it down to shorter fractions?

Thanks again.
Jo.

/ Perfect Help Here. Using this info I was able to get MKV to rip Title #1 of Kill Bill 2. On regular mode MKV kept skipping [Main] Title #1 [3.3 GB] on multiple tries and post disk cleaning. I figured out how to unlock Manual mode in preferences. See attached pics.

– this was original problem as described above–
MakeMKV v1.12.0 darwin(x64-release) started
Optical drive "DVD+R-DL HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-5160D A302d" opened in OS access mode.
Using direct disc access mode
<–––––––––– Title #1 Missing due to unknown reason
Title #2 was added (1 cell(s), 0:26:02)
Title #3 was added (1 cell(s), 0:11:31)
Title #4 was added (1 cell(s), 0:03:37)
Title #5 has length of 13 seconds which is less than minimum title length of 120 seconds and was therefore skipped
Operation successfully completed

– Then with Manual Mode accessed–
Using direct disc access mode
Open DVD manually : "1:@1-@20" . <–––––––What I entered in Manual Mode [Main Movie]
Title #1 was added (20 cell(s), 2:16:42) <–––––– Main Title Appears
Operation successfully completed
Saving 1 titles into directory /Users/mark/Movies/Movie to MKV
Title 0 skipped
0 titles saved
Saving 1 titles into directory /Users/mark/Movies/Movie to MKV
