List of DVD/BluRay that haven't worked

Post by Sybock » Mon Jul 20, 2009 8:45 pm

** UPDATED: 2009-08-02 ** With the release of version 1.4.6, the problems with a lot if not all of these movies has been solved. The items left on the list either still don't work in 1.4.6 or are unconfirmed.

I love this program - but it doesn't always work.

When I say "don't work", what I means is that I run MakeMKV on the particular movie and the resulting .mkv plays in any player (VLC, KMPlayer, MPC) but it has no video or audio. It's not a copyright issue because I'll already have ripped/stripped the movie from disc using DVD Shrink, DVD Decrypter or AnyDVDHD. I've been ripping DVDs for almost a decade now so you can assume I know what I'm doing when I say it's not a configuration issue with my media players. I've also spent over $4k building an infallible file server with a RAID 6+0 array to protect this media for all time.

Particularly, the issue I'm talking about has been covered in some depth in this thread: http://www.makemkv.com/forum2/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=347

Here is a list I'm starting for movies that haven't worked for me. If you want to add to it, that'd be great. Maybe it'll help figure out what's wrong. Just post below like I do and I'll copy it into this list.

- The Departed (2006) NTSC DVD AC3 DD5.1 - Failed during creation of .mkv file on version 1.4.6 with no reason given for error. (tried 3 times)
- Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) NTSC DVD AC3 DD5.1 - Failed during creation of .mkv file on version 1.4.6 with no reason given for error. (tried 3 times)
- The Last Samurai, Blu-ray, Region 1, LIBMKV_TRACE: Exception: Error while reading input - (It failed to create the .mkv file)

Thank you for maintaining this list. I'm making this post sticky for now to keep a track. Please post ONLY disc names and description and follow the format - disc name, dvd or blu-ray, region, error description.

The next coming version will have significant changes in mux code and should correct some of these.

Taken, DVD, Region 1

Valkyrie, DVD, Region 1

I'm now 1 for 4 using this program. The Watchmen worked hopefully when I try more they will work as well.

Is that the 2001 or 2009 Fast & Furious?

I must say, the new version 1.4.6 has fixed all known issues with current problematic movies that I have in my library; kudos.
