Re: Problem with external LG WP50NB40

Scroll down on that post until you see the section titled:

only use the recovery steps for older NS40 drives!!:

You might be able to recover.

Re: No Longer Able to Rip after MacOS 13.0.1 Ventura

Have you tried power cycling your optical drive? I'm not running Ventura, so this is just a guess.

Re: DTS Audio / 5.1 audio track to Dolby Digital Audio / 5.1

New TVs do not support DTS Audio. Is it possible to transcode a DTS Audio / 5.1 audio track to Dolby Digital Audio / 5.1 without additional steps? Certainly some new TVs support DTS audio. In any case, MakeMKV has a thing called conversion profiles . A conversion profile can be used to do on-the-fl...

Re: Top Gun: Maverick

Automatic SDF downloading is disabled for failed. ^ That message indicates something is wrong I don't see these on the spreadsheet. Does that mean they aren't ready? I'm using MakeMKV v1.17.2 on a new Mac Studio. What is the process for new movies? Will a new version of MakeMKV be required to proce...

Re: Ripping Issues - Noise and delays

The one thing I NEVER found in them was where they connected to the internet for their fiber network. I would have SERIOUSLY considered starting one of these, especially if I thought I could turn it into a bit of income long term while working on maintaining it. I would LOVE to be able to get somet...

Re: Ripping Issues - Noise and delays

More information! I think this tells us something, but I'm not sure what. I got up and went into my study this morning and the drive was still making that noise. I thought, "It's STILL ripping that one BD?!?" But then when I hit a key and the screeensaver stopped, I saw that MakeMKV had s...

Re: Ripping Issues - Noise and delays

I'm not ripping as much as I used to. With rural internet, I ripped about 8TB of TV shows (ripped and saved at about 1GB/hr - it was a compromise for quality that upscaled easily and space), and then our entire movie collection. Streaming has only lately become a useable option without tracking ban...

Re: Ripping Issues - Noise and delays

I did a search for those. Internal drives - which I really can't stick in an iMac. I see there are USB devices to use internal externally. Any comments on those or recommendations for one to use? My LG and ASUS drives are in OWC Mercury Pro enclosures . My Pioneer is in a Vantec enclosure because i...

Re: Ripping Issues - Noise and delays

Is it possible I put it on a more "cautious" setting that may not be needed and I can try it without that setting or without that setting at a higher level? The previously posted link to speed control would tell you how to set the drive to a slower read mode. That's about as 'cautious' as...

Re: Ripping Issues - Noise and delays

MakeMKV does have some logic in it to slow the reads in some scenarios as part of a strategy to increase the chances of getting a clean rip. The noise you hear is probably the laser head backing up to attempt a second, third, etc. read of a troublesome section of the disc. MakeMKV drive speed contro...

Re: Ripping Issues - Noise and delays

I'm not sure that strategy will work with lsof. The '-p' switch allows one to see all the files held open by a PID (or list of PIDs). For example: lsof -p 15860 Activity Monitor (or your favorite ps command) can show you the PID of MakeMKV (the GUI application) and more importantly, makemkvcon, whic...

Re: New AACS Version Question: Orphan First Kill and 5-25-77

I'm not exactly sure how it works, but I think the 'highest AACS version' line on the Drive Info is just the highest version of AACS that particular drive has encountered. My drive happens to show version 77. What version have you encountered?

Is this title already supported? I have the UHD and MakeMKV 1.17.2 and it cant decrypt.
There might be multiple keys. Submit your key just in case. Also, make sure you can download keys.

Re: MakeMKV Downloads page Windows links go to not found page

The deep link to the .exe worked for me. The link to makemkv.com/download resulted in a 404 for me.
