Re: 3 from Hell correct title?

MakeMKV does this already and has for a while.

That thread referenced refers to BluRay DVDs and says it does not work with 'old fashioned'
DVDs.

Re: 3 from Hell correct title?

This response is related to the question of what title to rip when there are multiple titles on the same DVD. The answer may not apply to Blu-Ray DVDs since the number of titles on the media may be in the hundreds. Lions Gate Entertainment has elected to store multiple episodes of the same content o...

Re: Hunter Killer/Anna DVD title?

The Anna DVD was from Summit entertainment. It had six file options for ripping. Had to rip each and test it -- found the correct one. Five of the six were essentially purposeful junk. PITA -- somebody who is familiar should develop a plugin to select the correct title. I would pay for it. Thanks to...

Re: Hunter Killer/Anna DVD title?

I have re-ordered the DVDs. Will take a while. When I have better information, I will post what I found. Hunter Killer is a Lionsgate disk; are you sure you ripped the correct title? Lionsgate will put multiple fake titles on their disks (hundreds on Bluray), assembled out of somewhat random scenes ...

Hunter Killer/Anna DVD title?

Well, I certainly could use some education or pointers.

How to pick the 'right' title has been a mystery to me -- yes I picked the largest size item.

Any help would be useful.

Hunter Killer/Anna DVD title?

Two DVDs – Hunter Killer and Anna Ran through MakeMKV – results were not as expected. For the Hunter Killer content The .mkv file jumps from 4:28 to 6:22 on the time frame when played. Obviously the .mp4 file gets ‘futzed up’ at the 4:28 point as would be expected. For the ANNA content The .mkv file...

Re: American Assassin gets error

Thank you for taking the time to reply -- much appreciated. My disk was a DVD. And I am essentially a newbie with little practical experience at this point. In my case my issues involved two separate media and a new ASUS Blu-Ray disk reader and older ASUS DVD reader. Failures were identical as in yo...

Suggestion regarding firmware update

This is a great forum and there is a wealth of information. The discussion of LibreDrive and 'regular' firmware is fulsome. I found the firmware I needed but then got stumped trying to determine how to update the firmware in the ASUS drive. https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=18933 is the ...

American Assassin gets error

American Assassin cannot be 'opened' by MakeMKV. It keeps getting an error -- see attached screen shot. This is the second disk and the issue happens on two ASUS drives -- one older and one with the most recent LibreDrive firmware. I find it unusual that MakeMKV cannot open the files and I doubt tha...
