Re: Dealing with poor ASUS BW-16D1HT quality control

Yes good drives have persistent issues and you've mentioned them. Let's stop with the all desktop drives are bad narrative and move on. A really good idea is to NOT buy drives off Amazon, a company known for shipping used and refurbished drives as new, and instead using one of the drive sellers her...

Re: Dealing with poor ASUS BW-16D1HT quality control

I just realized that it doesn't look like my debug log actually got attached to my above post for whatever reason. I will try again with another log exhibiting the problem with the current new drive. This log is after flashing the ASUS-BW-16D1HT-3.10-WM01601-211901041014.bin firmware, which doesn't ...

Dealing with poor ASUS BW-16D1HT quality control

I understand that the whole family of UHD friendly desktop drives have terrible quality control and new drives are often unreliable or unusable out of the box. My question is what exactly are the failure modes and how do I quickly determine if the one I just received from amazon.ca is one of these u...

Re: Question to all: MakeMKV without GUI, console only

I would love to see more functionality for makemkvcon, or even just documentation for the existing functionality like operating as a TCP server. The basic problem with using the GUI is that for each disk it requires several steps: 0) insert disc 1) open makemkv 2) scan the disc (wait a minute or two...

Segment map list truncated after 75 elements

I have a copy of the three disc Blade Runner 30th anniversary collectors edition. On the third disc with special features, 00581.mpls has a lot of entries in the segment map (Segment count: 108). It looks like makemkvcon stops listing them after 75 and instead adds an ellipsis. I see the same behavi...

Re: Broadchurch S2D2 00031.mpls LIBMKV_TRACE: Exception: Error while reading input

Just to close the loop on this, I saw the same behaviour with 1.15.2, but it seems to be fixed in 1.15.3.

Re: Broadchurch S2D2 00031.mpls LIBMKV_TRACE: Exception: Error while reading input

Ah, the problem is only present in the latest version makemkv-bin_1.15.1. If I downgrade to makemkv-bin_1.15.0, I can rip the title without issue. The 1.15.0 debug output is attached.

Re: makemkvcon exit codes

I would ordinarily avoid a pile on post, but this seems to have been forgotten for 9 years and I agree that expected behaviour is to only return 0 when nothing went wrong.

Re: Broadchurch S2D2 00031.mpls LIBMKV_TRACE: Exception: Error while reading input

I'm using the unmodified Default profile.

The GUI info pane says

Code: Select all

Output format: Raw LPCM audio without channel configuration metadata ( Lossless conversion )
Output description: Save as raw LPCM

All but one title on this disc will rip fine. The one that fails is 00031.mpls, segments map 27,28,29,30,31,32. The behaviour is consistent between both my drives BD-RE ATAPI iHBS212 2 53T1 BD-RE ASUS BW-161DHT 3.10 (patched libredrive firmware) I am able to do a full disk decrypted backup without i...

Re: Don't create wget output files

This still happens with the current MakeMKV v1.10.10 linux(x64-release). Most problematically, when using using libmmbd with mpv , which has recently fixed spam from libbluray. This wget output (not to mention the garbage file creation) is the sole remaining eyesore. This seem beyond the control of ...

This has been happening to me with every single update even though I make no modifications to the MakeMKV directory. Steps to reproduce on Windows 7: 1. Open outdated MakeMKV 2. Click the update link, which opens Firefox and downloads the installer 3. Run the installer from Firefox 4. Tell the insta...

Re: Due to a bug in Linux kernel messages

If this really is a kernel bug, then it should be filed at https://bugzilla.kernel.org/ by someone who is experiencing it (i.e., has the most available information) so that the kernel developers at least know there is a problem.

Re: Merging Lord of the Rings Extended Edition Trilogy Set

I take it back. Only The Fellowship of the Ring merged correctly. Both The Two Towers and The Return of the King had different private data in the h264 track.
