Blu Ray extras but not the movie

Post by catdeskchaos »

Hi,
I am brand new to this. I am sorry if my problem came up before or if there is an introduction that I missed. I looked around but I couldn't find an answer.
I have copied some Blu Rays but I'm having a problem with others where I will get all the extras but not the movie. The most recent one I have had this problem with is the Criterion Collection Blu Ray of the 39 Steps.
I can see what I think is the movie when it shows me things I can copy, but when I ask it to it tells me 0 titles were copied, and then it bounces me back to the selection.
I've cleaned the discs, and this has happened to some other blu rays as well.
I am using an archgon and my system is windows 10 if that matters.

The bottom half of the MakeMKV window shows a log of what's going. With one of the discs you're having trouble with, copy that log and paste it into this thread so we can see what's going on.

Code: Select all

You can put it in a 'code' block show it shows up like this.

Ok, so I put the disk in, have it scan. The log shows this.

Code: Select all

MakeMKV v1.16.4 win(x64-release) started
Using direct disc access mode
Evaluation version, 22 day(s) out of 30 remaining

I look at the things I can copy. I have all the extras already so I deselect most of them. I'm fairly sure this is the movie so this is the only one I have check marked.

Code: Select all

Tell it to save to my The 39 Steps - Criterion on my external hard drive. Start by clicking the Make MKV button.

I got a new external hard drive with a different format and haven't had this issue since. So I guess if anyone else has this issue use NTFS format.

Ah, that explains it. Older disks are probably formatted with one of the versions of the FAT filesystem which cannot handle files >2GiB in size: the main movie is almost certainly much bigger than that, so writing fails. (You'd usually get a truncated 2GiB file, though, not nothing.)

Disks formatted more recently are probably either NTFS (as noted) or ExFAT, neither of which have this problem.
