Re: Game of Thrones

Well not bad. All failed discs but one worked after rotary sander + car polish polishing! I'm going more aggressive on the one failed disc and see what happens. What a nightmare ripping this series has been. Anyway - add this to the list of options to clean a disc; in this case I tried all the usual...

Re: Game of Thrones

So... I kid you not on this: I took an orbital sander, a lambs wool disc, and Maguires 205 car polish that I had and polished the hell out of one of the discs. It read perfectly. Going to do another one and see what happens. Mind you this is a disc that failed every single time across 5 drives; popp...

Re: Game of Thrones

thanks. seems the copy (not rip) using Windows is also now stuck - i didn't watch the entire disc in the Oppo and it's entirely possible it won't play without issue either. Amazing this set - after some searching around, it seems a lot of folks are having issues. Maybe I'll try the other LG drive yo...

Game of Thrones

Has anyone had success ripping this series? Of the 8 seasons, season 2: Disc 1 and 3 fail; tried 5 different drives and two different pieces of software season 8: Disc 1 fails, two different sets. discs play fine in my Oppo UHD player, and oddly enough it seems I can (so far) copy the encrypted file...

Re: TENET UHD RB - Failed to open disk

The QC on UHD is terrible. Tenent was one of the worst for me; I just returned for an exchange the Lord of the Rings 4K set because one of the discs refused to rip at a certain point. I’ve had easily 20 UHD discs fail to backup with at least one well past the return/exchange date so I actually bough...

Closing the loop - new (exchanged) set arrived today from Amazon.

Backing up fine.

Re: TENET UHD RB - Failed to open disk

Amazon (US) version "64DA" still not working.

Bummer.

EDIT:

The disc won't even back up properly without decryption (makemkv says it backed up but one file failed hash check; however the disc never fully backs up - odd behavior) - no amount of cleaning helped, so exchanging it.

Re: TENET UHD RB - Failed to open disk

It should download the latest set of keys.

Interesting that there are so many variants - though does the different filename mean different volume key?

My "amazon" copy produced a different filename than others.

Re: TENET UHD RB - Failed to open disk

Not ripping for me - says volume key is unknown. DeUHD can also not read it - getting 0.37 MB/s, and the rip starts with errors right off the back which I can "Ignore All", but I'm not waiting 76 hours to rip this disc.... Either the discs are largely "bad", or perhaps some new s...

Full disk backup - makemkv M2TS folder?

For some full disk backups, I've noticed that in the resulting backup which has an MAKEMKV folder there appears an M2TS folder that sometimes has a file or two in it which are also files in the STREAM folder.

Why are these here and what does it represent?

Re: Once upon a time in Hollywood

yup read that. was more curious why one drive failed to even mount this disc while an older “friendly” drive had no issues.

Re: Once upon a time in Hollywood

Interesting! Once Upon a Time In Hollywood will not load on my official UHD drive - LG WH16NS60 firmware 1.00. MakeMKV can’t find the disc On an older “friendly drive”, it works. But it also reports AACS as “AACS 2.0/C v68”, which I don’t recall ever seeing the “/C” before. Being this is a Sony titl...

Re: MakeMKV Skipping Files?

I've asked the same question. When backing up Weird Science, it skipped a PDF in the root of the disc. The PDF is an unencrypted full script of the movie. I'd expect the entire disc to be backed up; not sure why files are skipped... Going to check one of the other popular programs and see if it too ...
