Why can't all DVDs be ripped?

Post by ACastro » Tue Mar 26, 2019 10:43 am

Hello,
I'm having a problem ripping Terminator 3, can anyone tell me why ALL DVDs can't be ripped? If they can, then please let me know what to do.

Thanks, Abel.

People rip DVDs regularly with MakeMKV. Without some idea of what errors you're receiving, we can't even guess at why YOUR DVDs are failing to rip.

Thanks again for your reply Woodman. I'm not getting any notices, all I get is a .mkv with 0 mb. Odd.

If MakeMKV cannot read and write a full, error-free MKV file, it will delete it. Your description says it tried to create the file (file name was added to the directory), then could not write the data, and was refused permission to delete the file name.

These issues should have generated errors. Do you have debug logging turned on? The link in my signature explains how to do that, and where to find the log.

You state that the file is showing 0mb. I had this happen last week and the problem was that all I had to do was refresh the page and the correct file size showed up and I was able to view the files. Check that and see what happens. That would explain why no error messages were being displayed. Might not be the problem but is a very easy thing to check and it did work for me. I am now refreshing my pages just to make sure. Good Luck.
