Re: Star Wars 4Ks

Good to know it worked for you. I finally managed to get 7 out of 9 discs successfully ripped. I had to folder rip every single one (except for Return of the Jedi, which worked completely normally straight out of the case) and then extract the main title to mkv from there. I also gave them all a nic...

Re: LG WH16NS60 or ASUS BW-16D1HT

Fair enough. The reliability is definitely a plus. I don't want a usb version, however. I don't want all the external wiring and whatnot. Got my server setup and running very well in a nice clean desktop tower (corsair 760t). I assume I could probably get 5.25" slim bay adapter for mounting in my ca...

Re: Star Wars 4Ks

I honestly believe the packaging is to blame. I very rarely have trouble with Hub mount cases, but these cardboard sleeve collector types are a pain. Not only are they impossible to get out of the sleeve without fingerprints, they add another source for scratches and defects. I could not agree more...

LG WH16NS60 or ASUS BW-16D1HT

Trying to decide between these two drives. I've currently got two LG WH16NS40's (F/W 1.00 and 1.02) that I've ripped hundreds of UHD with (at least until I got the latest Star Wars 9 disc set... ugh) I run one drive on a Win 10 pro PC and the other on an unRAID server via linux docker (my primary ri...

Re: Star Wars 4Ks

How are you cleaning them? I've seen some people use isopropyl alcohol with a microfiber cloth. Usually i just microfiber them and that's enough. If they piss me off too much I end up using dawn dish detergent and cold filter water. Always cleaning inside to outside edge. Sent from my SM-G975U usin...

Re: Star Wars 4Ks

Wow... These have been the absolute worst discs I've ever tried to rip. Nothing but read error after read error! So far I've tried episodes 1, 2, 3, and 9 with no luck at all! they all get about anywhere from 1/3 to 2/3 done and error out. I've tried cleaning them, reloading makemkv, rebooting compu...

Re: Star Wars Alien Subtitles

All UHD's, period, have hardcoded Forced subtitles. At least all of the 170+ I own do. :wink: edit: Ok, so all of the English/US title tracks (like playlist 800 on Disney Movies) have burned in forced subtitles. Still, I always have MakeMKV select all English forced tracks and it always reports back...

Re: Thor 1 / 2

Sent mine in for Thor yesterday as well. US Target Cinematic Universe Edition. As of 5 minutes ago I've got it decrypting. :D

(Endgame US Target Cinematic Universe Edition is working for me now as well!)

Re: Choppy Framerate from HD-DVD in MKV at 29.97fps

Just going to throw out my method of making HD-DVD MKV's work the same as Bluray's. It all comes down to the fact that HD-DVD's are 24fps HD files that are encoded with pulldown to make them appear as 29.97fps (this has to do with the fact that not all TV's back then were capable of 24fps progressiv...

Re: Ripping Dolby Atmos into MKV

It could be a player issue (though if it is it's hard to say when, if ever, a fix is found and implemented) or it could be a makemkv issue causing it. I'm leaning towards Makemkv just based on the fact that playing direct from the disc works perfectly. When Makemkv extracts the movie to the mkv cont...

Re: Ripping Dolby Atmos into MKV

Good question I'm not sure what they used. Alternatively those who kept the ATMOS extensions and play it on a receiver incapable of handling ATMOS also noticed no issues. It's kind of weird. Not everybody... I just upgraded to an atmos avr in the last couple weeks. Prior to that I was still getting...

Re: Ripping Dolby Atmos into MKV

Can that be done from within makemkv somehow or does it require using eac3to and a remux? I'd settle for just a basic True HD track on these problem discs.

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

that's correct. once you rip the full valerian disc contents (not mkv) go into its dir and put the largest .m2ts file from \bdmv\streams\ into its own folder. then run my app and point it to that folder and click install. wait about 1h15m ish. that's it. you'll be able to play the new mp4 directly ...
