I don't have that particular movie, but often when there's a few 'copies' of the movie on a disc, that means that some stuff has been localized for particular languages. For instance, in Star Wars, the opening text is in a different language.

In the case of Disney movies, for example, it is almost always playlist 800 that is the English one.

You could rip all three movies, see which one is which, and delete the unwanted versions.

You could make a decrypted backup of the movie and then look at the differences. Select the title on the left, and on the right, look for something called "Segment Map". There will be a list of numbers that are the segments of the movie. As you switch between the different titles, you should be figure out which segments in the list are different between the titles. These segment numbers correspond to file names that can be found in the decrypted backup. Go to that backup, look into the BDMV folder, then STREAM. You'll see a bunch of files with .m2ts extensions. These video files can be played with VLC (https://www.videolan.org/vlc/) or MPV (https://mpv.io). Find and play one of the segments that changes between the different files. You should be able to figure out which title you're looking for. Then, you can make a proper MKV from the backup you created.

You could also try using GetMPLS. Search the forum for it. It just might tell you which playlist is the correct one for you.
Cheers :D

Thanks for the kind tips,etc but getmpls seems away beyond my comprehensions maybe later when I am feeling better I will have another go with it but not at the moment.Just now I have Dvdfab doing it's thing and seems to be ok.
The 3 files in question are all the same length (time) and after checking through the streams they look the same,these were done with MakeMkv bought version and I have a feeling there all the same,anyhoo enough for tonight back to bed some more painkillers and try and get a good sleep Thanks

I have never seen this on a disc 3 movie files the exact same length and no way to tell which is the right one or they may all be right. I can't even download getmpls although I wouldn't know what to do with if I could lol. What I am asking is for someone just to tell what is the correct file Thanks

You will either need to provide the full details of each one (expand each title so that all the audio and subtitle tracks show, select it so that the details appear in the right side of the window, and take a screenshot of the full MakeMKV window), or you'll need to wait for someone who has the same disc.
