Re: Can't rip (or even read) "The Hunger Games: Catching fire"

Based on what drayla says about the disc, I'm wiling to buy another copy. That's still way cheaper than biting the bullet and getting the "official" LG drive, which may or may not help, if it's a really messed up disc. So far, both discs I tried are actually region B - one from the UK and one from a...

Re: Can't rip (or even read) "The Hunger Games: Catching fire"

Time for the next episode of "I can't catch the fire" ;) I just received my new drive, the LG NS55 and... no luck. Just like the ASUS, the first disc lists a lot of read errors and ends with LIBMKV_TRACE: UDF mount: disc not properly formatted(bad VDS) Similarly, the second disc lists fewer errors (...

Re: Can't rip (or even read) "The Hunger Games: Catching fire"

Yes, but wouldn't this mean that a certain drive may not be able to read ALL triple layer discs? I'm just curious why only some and not all. I mean, if I have 10 discs like that and 9 are read with no issues, but the 10th can't even be mounted - what's so different about it? The others have lots of ...

Re: Can't rip (or even read) "The Hunger Games: Catching fire"

I'm not sure how much knowledge you (or anyone reading this) has about the BD manufacturing process, but in case you know a lot about it, do you have any idea why some triple layer discs are problematic? I'm just asking out of curiosity. Logically, I would think that if a drive has issues with 3-lay...

Re: Can't rip (or even read) "The Hunger Games: Catching fire"

The saga continues. I ordered a new disc on eBay which is an Australian import. Unfortunately, it won't work either, but, it behaves a bit differently. Sometimes it will generate similar error codes to what I've posted originally, but unlike the previous disc, it will only mention 3 sectors it can't...

Re: Can't rip (or even read) "The Hunger Games: Catching fire"

Indeed, it's on Amazon... at almost 4 times the price of ASUS, that's insane. I guess it's 25 GBP for the drive and 200 GBP for the official UHD licensing ;) Honestly, I'm not willing to pay that price, at least not yet. I just tried to crossflash the LG NS60 1.0 FW, but that didn't help either. My ...

Re: Can't rip (or even read) "The Hunger Games: Catching fire"

I finally finished ripping everything. Only had an issue with this one disc. I have now upgraded the firmware to 3.10 MK and... no luck so I'll either need the other drive or it's really just a bad disc. Unfortunately, I don't have a "real" Blu-ray player to verify if the disc is faulty or not. @Sam...

Re: Can't rip (or even read) "The Hunger Games: Catching fire"

I know you're often dealing here with people who truly can't differentiate a clean disc from a dirty one, but I can. Every time someone asked me to borrow them a movie, I'd ask them to bring me one of their cleanest discs to prove that they can handle them and so far everyone failed. I've yet to mee...

Re: Can't rip (or even read) "The Hunger Games: Catching fire"

"I don't care how pristine "it looks" or if it came out of the package brand new and into the drive, it still needs to be cleaned." I looked at the disc, I didn't just put it in and assumed that it's clean, I see that it's clean :) But fine, I get it, there could be some microscopic dirt so I clean...

Can't rip (or even read) "The Hunger Games: Catching fire"

For some reason my drive can't read the 4K disc with "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" and I wonder if anyone here could help me out or knows why. It fails right away during the initial process of identifying the disc so I enter the disc, see the spinning animation in MakeMKV and normally once it re...

Re: NEW OPTION: 'UHD Friendly' Firmware Downgrade / Cross-Flash Using Official (Modified) ASUS Flasher for ASUS & LG Dri

Hi! I'm new here and I only registered to just say THANK YOU for this. I bought the ASUS BW-16D1HT drive today, manufactured in October 2018, it came with firmware 3.03 and couldn't read or even recognize UHD discs. I used this tool to downgrade it to 3.02 and now it reads the UHD disc so again, tha...
