Re: Spider-Man 3 (2018, UK Release, 4K)

Did you work this out? I've just ripped the two Angle 1 files because MakeMKV defaulted to not ticking the other two!

I'll let you know if that works out, otherwise I'll rip the Angle 2 films as well.

Stutter on some 4K rips using Apple TV/Infuse

I have been using Apple TV 4K with Infuse as my primary method of streaming for a while now, but have recently noticed that an increasing number of files will only play with fairly extreme judder/stutter. Last night, I tried Secret Life of Pets 2 and it really stuttered. The original disc plays fine...

Re: "automatic sdf downloading is disabled or failed" while decrypting

Apologies in advance for my ignorance, but I can't understand most of the solutions in this thread! Is it just safe to say that something is broken and will be fixed in a future update? No your dns is broken Thanks. I’m up and running on my other machine now, so I’ll have to work out how to fix the...

Re: Black Hawk Down

I eventually managed to get this working. The second copy of the disc wouldn't work on either of my LG drives to start with, but then when I swapped the desktop drive to the laptop it worked fine.

Re: Black Hawk Down

I think I must have a bad copy of this. I have tried ripping both files several times and it gets to about 65% complete and the read speed collapses from 6.0x to about 3.5x and then fails because of a SCSI error. I've tried on my other drive and it won't work at all. Hopefully another copy will sort...

Re: UHD (Official) Friendly Drive - Archgon MD-8107S-U3-UHD (Powered by LG BU40N)

I just wanted to leave a quick note of thanks on this thread foe the original recommendation. This drive is excellent. Since I moved to UHD, I have been using a bulky LG BE16NU50 drive. Thaty has been fine, but this one has quite a lot of advantages: 1. Much smaller. 2. Bus powered, so totally porta...

Depending on your size preference the LG WH16NS60 with original firmware version 1.00 reads (rips) at 8x is currently tied the LG BU40N slim drive (running it's original version 1.00, rips at 6x, and ships in a righteous little enclosure) for THE drive to have right now.

Re: The Happy Prince Lionsgate UK

Thanks, how long did that take?. For those confused by this (as I was) 00983.mpls does not appear to show up on the MKV title list.

When I looked back, it shows that it is skipped because it is the same as 00659.mpls so have ripped that one instead.

BD+ discs no longer work?

I am trying to re-rip a couple of my older BD+ discs (Epic and Percy Jackson UK versions), but they fail without error messages. Is this a problem with the new version?

Re: LG BE16NU50 started ejecting discs without reading them

Has the drive been cleaned recently? It might not be detecting the data flashes that would come from trying to read a disk, and ejecting it as "foreign matter". A blast from an "air duster" can might be all it needs. I have run one of those cleaner discs with the brushes through it, but it didn't h...

Re: LG BE16NU50 started ejecting discs without reading them

What I meant to say was that the first drive ejects all discs without reading them. Swapping in the second drive is fine as it works perfectly, but I’d like to get the first one working as well so I have a backup. I have tried running a cleaner disc through it, but that made no difference. i unders...
