Lord of the Rings fails to copy

Post by Intruder » Fri Sep 10, 2010 8:00 pm

Hi,

I've been trying out MakeMKV and I've had a great experience with it (love the simplicity!) until last night when I attempted to rip Lord of the Rings. Fellowship of the Ring failed so I tried The Two Towers, but it failed the same way. I successfully ripped 5-6 other titles before that and I successfully ripped another movie after the two LOTR titles failed.

I am using the latest version of MakeMKV and the debug log is attached. These are original Blu-Ray discs.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks!

You're saving a big MKV file to an external drive formatted as FAT, that can't handle files bigger than 4 GB.

Is this what the error means?

I'm saving the MKV to a Windows Home Server share, and I did not have a problem saving 5 other MKVs in the range of 20-30GB each. Even the DVD rips are >4GB and saved without a problem.

Yes, either out of space or file limit.

I think you're right even though there is plenty of free space in the storage pool and there is no file limit.

I googled "WHS file size limit" and found an interesting article describing a problem similar to mine. It looks to be a bug (or a feature) of WHS where even though I have plenty of space left in the storage pool, it seems I've ran out of space on the OS drive. WHS seems to be copying the files to the OS drive and then shifting them around offline. I think this is stupid.

Just a suggestion for one of your next releases - MakeMKV could say "insufficient space on target drive" in a non-cryptic way when a disk runs out of space.

It normally does, but your WHS lies over amount of free space. Firstly it reports "enough" and then throws an error.
