Re: Just to Confirm...

No, for this particular drive. The ASUS BW-16D1X-U. I don't have one of these drives, so I don't have firsthand experience. Can you post a screenshot of what MakeMKV says about your drive? It seems that the actual innards of that drive might any number of things, some of which might work and some w...

Re: Just to Confirm...

4K ripping depends on the manufacturing date of the drive, correct? Anything pre-2020 will not work, correct? I looked at the date underneath and it's November 2017. Are you asking in general or about a specific drive? The Ultimate UHD Drives Flashing Guide Updated 2022 says 2015 or later, platform...

With some films like z.Bsp. Jupiter Ascending, Nobody etc.,
I'm curious what film is z.Bsp.?

Almost always playback problems like you describe are a limitation of whatever your playback system is. Try a different player and see if it helps.

Re: failed to open disc

Ah, I misunderstood. I thought you tried to remove Java from your system. I didn't realize you reinstalled it. Hence my confusion from seeing the log info about MakeMKV using Java. You're correct, you don't don't need Java for MakeMKV to work. I still speculate that Java might be silently crashing. ...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

https://www.rtings.com/tv/learn/hdr-vs-sdr As a short summary, most HDR capable TVs also support a wider color gamut than a SDR TV. Most formats that can bring you HDR video can also bring you wider color gamut video. So, most of the time, the tone mapping between HDR and SDR is more than just brig...

Re: Ripping speed

The MakeMKV drive speed control thread talks about the the options. As I understand it, the most recent versions of MakeMKV try slowing down the ripping process if the drive is having trouble correctly reading the disc to improve the chances of a successful rip. That could be what's happening in you...

Re: A Clockwork Orange UHD issue

Whenever I have to clean a disc, I use plenty of warm water and liquid dish soap. I lightly use the tip of my finger to go from the center to the edge of the disc and back again. I slowly work my way around the surface of the disc. The water is effectively a lubricant and the soap will clean off any...

Re: A Clockwork Orange UHD issue

The UHD FAQ has an entry on this topic in the Problems section. Without seeing your actual error or log information (feel free to post it), we can only talk in generalities. However, very likely the optical drive is not correctly reading the optical disc. The standard advice is to gently clean your ...

Re: MKV

MakeMKV goes to great lengths to make an exact 1:1 copy of the disc. It verifies the hash codes included on the disc to make sure it is making an exact copy. There are lots of threads on this forum talking about the various ripping errors people see. A collection of those errors can be found in the ...

Re: Issues with newer UHD discs not mounting

I have ripped both No Time to Die (2021) and The Matrix Resurrections (2021) so they're not inherently unripable.

Re: m2TS

MakeMKV doesn't really operate at the .m2ts file level. As Woodstock suggested, there are lots of movies where the single movie is composed of several individual .m2ts files. With blu-rays and UHDs, MakeMKV has a backup function that copies all the contents of the blu-ray (minus the encryption) into...

Re: What player should I use for UHD playback (straight from disc)?

Traditionally people use VLC with MakeMKV to do playback of UHDs on their computer. Install VLC and it should appear in the Integration tab on MakeMKV. libmmbd - MakeMKV decryption API as LGPL library I think you might have to have the paid version of MakeMKV for this to work. I also think you might...

Re: The Magic Flute (Bergman) fake playlist

I don't have that particular movie, so I can't help you find the right answer. It sounds like this title has playlist obfuscation or fake playlists. The MakeMKV FAQ has an entry about this. There are also various threads around the forum where people discuss methods one can use for finding the right...
