'SAFE' caption next to/on read rate

I was using makemkv, to backup terminator (original, released a few years ago on Blu-ray). My archgon player/recorder hit 5.5 times read rate, and it was transferring 24.76 m/s. at this point the word 'safe' appeared next to the read rate. after this the read rate dropped to 5.1 about 17.78 m/s. Nev...

Re: MakeMKV Crash - Windows 11

I have used MakeMKV, on : Windows 10/11/server software, without any issues, and that's the beta that's just gone full. I have had no problems. Probably not what you want to hear, but it should ease your windows 11 worries. Thought about doing a new install?. you didn't stipulate whether your win11 ...

Re: HL-DT-ST BD-RE BU40N USB MODEL MD-8107-U3 ARCHGON

if you need to burn your mkv files to DVD-R (stnd. 4.7 GB), head over to 'freemake'. The only component you need to purchase is the remove branding. Just tried it out, and the disk plays as a DVD!. Great gift to!.

Hope some one finds this interesting?.. :mrgreen:

Re: HL-DT-ST BD-RE BU40N USB MODEL MD-8107-U3 ARCHGON

can I just say, that I am capable of following very complex instructions, that do not need to be a step by step. just a nudge in the right direction is all I am looking for. I will trade you windows network problems of your own, for some support for me on my blu ray player.
