Close encounters of the third kind 40th anniversary UHD

Post by dcleys » Thu Mar 28, 2019 2:46 pm

Hi all, I have been looking for answers all over the forum for this, but can't find anything really helpful. I am trying to rip Close encounters of the third kind 4K 40th anniversary disc, but the disc just keeps spinning and never opens in MakeMKV 1.14.3 for Mac (or previous versions) on a MacBook Pro. I also tried on a Windows 10 PC with the latest version of MakeMKV, but it won't read either.

I have the Asus BW-16D1HT with LibreDrive enabled firmware MK 3.10.

Any suggestions please? Would this just be a bad disc, or do I have to downgrade the firmware again in order to be able to read this.

Thanks for your time!

Sounds like a bad disc potentially. I'd clean it with a microfiber and see if that helps. Yes, I'm sure it "looks" pristine but these discs sometimes ship with a small coating of oil that the BW-16D1HT really doesn't like. I got from center of the disc straight out to the edge and repeat all the way around the disc with a microfiber cloth and that's always worked for me.

+1 on this disc for me as well. Apologies if I should have started a new thread but I have pretty much the same deal with my LibreDrive-enabled WH14NS40 LG drive. It sounds lie a jet engine attempting to take off and then stutters as it tries.

Has anyone been able to rip this yet? I did spelunk the forums for any info.

Just purchased an Asus BW-16D1HT with LibreDrive enabled 3.10 and was able to successfully rip my first UHD (Mission:Impossible Fallout), but the second disc was Close Encounters 4K (not the 40th anniversary but I'm sure the disc is the same) and it fails to even mount. Just spins and makes a terrible racket in the process.

Is it the drive, the disc, the firmware, or a combo?

I've ripped nearly 400 DVDs and Blu-rays with a previous non-UHD drive, which worked flawlessly. Really was looking forward to moving up to 4K.

Many thanks

I backed up the disc with no trouble with the same drive, firmware and version of MakeMKV (albeit on Windows).

Interesting. I'll see if I have any better luck using Windows, I've a Mac laptop with Boot Camp installed I could try it on.

Anyone had any luck with this movie ripped on a Mac? Is that the issue?

Thanks

I just bought the disk today, my Asus BW-16D1HT with LibreDrive enabled firmware MK 3.10 won't read it. Anyone have luck yet? maybe another firmware?

Telling us what error messages you're getting would help a lot.

No error messages at all. It try's to read it for about a minute or two and then just says "no disc inserted"

Same here, no errors. It then simply ejects the disc.

I'm going to try installing MakeMKV on a Mac running Windows tomorrow to see if that works, if not I'm rating the disc to Amazon. Perhaps it's the disc - I'll try again in a year.

Tried tonight to mount the disc using Windows, albeit via Boot Camp on a MacBook, still no joy. Sending the disc back and will try again later in the year.

Two out of my first three UHD discs ripped ok. Will be ordering Die Hard tomorrow and trying that.

"No disk inserted" means that the drive OR the operating system (usually the drive) cannot detect a compatible format on the disk.
