Re: Venom playlist

I had the exact same problem with this disc (Venom BD) on Debian 9 using Java 8. @bmillham, your tip worked great, I didn't notice that Java was crashing it. In my case, I had to rename /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin/java. /usr/bin/java is just a link to /etc/alternatives/java, which is i...

Re: ASUS BW-16D1HT 3.02 and problem reading DVDs

Thanks, I missed that thread somehow. It's funny this UHD drive basically won't read ANY DVD. My Sony BluRay drive usually reads DVDs fine, but read both of the discs I tried today with errors. My red-laser Memorex USB-powered DVD-only drive worked perfectly. Sounds like the long-term solution is to...

Re: ASUS BW-16D1HT 3.02 and problem reading DVDs

I want to add a "me too" to this, sort of.

My BW-16D1HT with 3.02 rips BluRay and UHD just fine, but won't even recognize a DVD.

Does this indicate it's a DVD laser issue?

An older DVD drive rips the same DVDs just fine, so I've got backup plans. Just annoying.

Thoughts?

Re: 100% Firmware Downgrade for ASUS BW-16D1HT and LG BH16NS55

This was fantastic, thanks so much for writing this up. I was able to flash my Asus BW-16D1HT from 3.03 to 3.02 and it is happily reading disks now! I used the DOS method with the Free Hex Editor FRHED. One thing that should be updated, the file to download for the "DOS method" with DOSFLASH is DOSF...

Re: All main episodes show up as one title/file.

It's really interesting, I used BDEdit and it found one playlist (0100) with 7 PlayItems and 29 PlayListMarks.

It looks like that's the only way to play the 7 episodes.

Bummer.

MKVToolnix is working well for this, but it would be nice to have this natively in MakeMKV.

Re: All main episodes show up as one title/file.

@MrVideo,

I'm glad you posted that.

The 7 episodes are in 7 separate .m2ts files of 3 - 3.5 GiB, with 4 chapters each.

MakeMKV reads them as one 21.4GB title with 28 chapters.

The chapter information is stored in separate meta files, though, so how do I keep the chapter info? Or I don't?

Re: All main episodes show up as one title/file.

Thanks Woodstock, I saw that. I'm using mkvtoolnix (aka mkvmerge) to do this with my BluRay rips, and it's as simple as saying "split before chapters 5,9,13,17,21,25,29" It's not terrible, but it is a bit frustrating having to use MakeMKV to rip the title then passing it though mkvtoolnix after that...

Re: All main episodes show up as one title/file.

It's funny, I found this thread looking for a way to rip this exact collection ("Clone Wars"). Thing is, my Season 1 was individual episodes, but Season 2 discs seem to have one big file so far. I'd like to request the ability to rip groups of chapters into individual files directly from MakeMKV. I ...
