Re: Soft bricked 1st gen WH14NS40

I made a 32-bit Windows PE bootable 4 gb usb with the Aomei tool and tried booting it just to see if it worked, but only my installed Windows 10 started. I haven't tried booting it with my SATA ports set to IDE, would that be why? You need to set the order of boot devices in the BIOS such that it t...

Hi!
I just upgraded to 1.14.1 using two disc drives and I cannot select a new (second drive) instance. Anybody else having this problem?
Do you have 'Ask for single drive mode' checked on the 'IO' preferences tab?

Hello,
I'm new to MKV, just downloaded a few days ago. Now software is asking for a key. How do I purchase as you mentioned?
From the MakeMKV UI, Help > Purchase

Once you have the key, Help > Register

Re: Heads up - Support for LG UHD drives

I checked my system but no SATA - IDE mode in the BIOS . So the laptop is useless for that task. I'll have to wait until I dig out my old system, determine if it has the IDE mode, figure out a way to connect my laptop drive to it (probably an external adapter?), and go from there. Any instructions ...

Re: Beta key not working

"The current beta key is... valid until end of May 2019." Traditionally, this means 'sometime around the end of ...', which is, well, now. This has happened every ~2 months for 9-10 years. Mike typically updates the key within a week. Patience. https://www.makemkv.com/forum/search.php?st=0&sk=t&sd=d...

Re: Audio extracting

Not with MakeMKV (to the best of my knowledge), but there seem to be any number of options: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=extraction+from+a+vob+file+to+MP3&t=ffcm&ia=web You could extract a specific audio stream from an .mkv with mkvtoolnix & convert that to .mp3.

So, despite an available FW, there's no generally available means to apply it? Go figure...

Re: New LG

Some adapters/enclosures fail in this regard. Any chance of temporarily connecting to an internal SATA port?

Or one of the 'professionals' might be able to recommend some adapter/enclosure options that are better behaved?

Re: WH16NS40 old model bricked - N00b mistake :(

So at this point I will share more details/updates. I think I may have found an old post with the original firmware. I also found the firmware extractor tool and extracted what could be the original firmware. I am unable to flash any of them as they all tell me that " CheckSum is mismatched. Drive ...

Looking for more documentation on the Selection Rules. Does anyone know if/where they might be? Looked for them in the online help and the FAQ to no benefit.
