Green Wing (BBC comedy) PAL conversion issues

Post by RobAinscough »

I tried to convert Disc 1 of Season 1 (Episodes 1-3) but sadly only Episode 1 converted correctly. Getting a lot of "is corrupt..." and "UNCORRECTABLE ERROR".

I've attached the log and was hoping for some input. I'm converting thru one of Billy's drives BDR-S13U with firmware update which is not restricted by region. The drive has worked flawlessly in other conversions just these Green Wing DVDs.

I do have a non Region specific 4K external DVD/BD player that has no problem playing these DVDs back on my NTSC based TV so the DVDs are "good" (i.e. not corrupted).

Any suggestions welcome.

Cheers, Rob.

EDIT: it seems this forum will not allow me to attach logs so here is the Log File

The standard advice is to gently clean the disc and try again.

The log you linked to suggests 6 titles were saved from the rip. But perhaps among the 6 titles saved not all 3 episodes made it?

Thanks for the response. The DVD plays fine in my ALL Region DVD/BD player, just makeMKV doesn't seem to like it ... yes, inspected the disc and tried cleaning but sadly no difference.

1 of the 3 episodes comes out fine. Episode 3 is partial (not complete). All the other outputs are smaller files and play in a repeat of what looks like DVD menu in a loop.

I'm guessing this error in the log: "Scsi error - MEDIUM ERROR:L-EC UNCORRECTABLE ERROR" is likely the problem. Perhaps some copy protection trickery?

Cheers, Rob.

Nah that's just a read error from a dirty or scratched disc clean the disc and then try.
Clean it with a damp lint free microfiber and then dry immediately with another to avoid water spots

I'll give it a go ... I used to use mild dishwasher (Dawn) liquid soap and water.

You were correct, tried cleaning but still no go, so I put the disk under my scope and took some pics of the damage:

Weird burn mark?

Many pits

Big scratch

Not sure how the disc got that way, I'm usually VERY care with my DVD/BD collection.
