Empty File Created (South Park)

Post by atlantaswl » Sat Jan 05, 2019 10:37 pm

I've got this drive:

Drive Information
OS device name: E:
Current profile: DVD-ROM
Manufacturer: ASUS
Product: DRW-24B3ST j
Revision: 1.11
Serial number: J8D0CL025401
Highest AACS version: 62

and MakeMKV reports this in the Disc Info:

Label: SOUTH_PARK_VOLUME_2
Timestamp: 1998-09-28 12:48:38
Data capacity: 4.22 Gb
Disc type: DVD-ROM
Disc size: 120mm
Maximum read rate: 10.08 Mbps [1x]
Number of layers: 1 (PTP)

When ripping begins, MakeMKV creates the title file, but the size is 0 and remains there, while the read spead increases upwards of 3.5X and slowly drops. Nothing is written to the output file.

Any/all help is appreciated.

Fred

Sorry to waste time, but waited about 10 minutes, and makemkv started to write to disk and completed.

MakeMKV may have been writing all along... Both Windows Explorer and MacOS Finder have times when they will acknowledge that a file has been created, but will NOT update its size on a regular basis. Sometimes, Explorer won't even acknowledge that the file has been created, if it's on a network share.
