"Backup" no longer working?

Post by jeff98 » Sat Nov 17, 2018 1:27 pm


I'm usually creating a backup of my 3D BRs. So far this worked without issues.
But starting with 1.12.3 I'm no longer able to backup a disk - when selecting "backup" makemkv takes about 5 seconds and then gives a message "backup failed".
Opening the disk and storing just parts of it however works - so makemkv seems to be able to read the disk.
I've now tried also the latest 1.14.1 - but same behavior (tested with Solo - A star wars story).
Reinstallig 1.12.2 - and "backup" works.

Did I miss a change in makemkv? Is there a new prerequisite to backup a disk now?

Backup definitely works in 1.12.x and 1.14.x...

Do you have debug logging turned on? What does the log show for the attempt?

Of course "O:" is writeable and has enough free space (1.12.2 can backup the same disk to this drive without issues).
I'm also pretty sure that it is not related to the disk - as actually none can be backuped anymore.

This is a bug in 1.14.x - backup fails for some 3D discs. Opening the disc should work.

I haven't really tried 3D discs so I wouldn't know.Regular backup Appears to me to work slow but still good given the fact I throw plenty of discs at it.Just out of of being curious does anyone seem to have a difference backing up 4K bluerays vs regularf blurays and DVDs? ive only done backups on a few UHD disks before so I would be curious to know :?:
