On my Mac, they are automatically stored the "MakeMKV data directory" I specified in the MakeMKV preferences window under the "General" tab. I assume the setting for people who do not change this location would be the "Movies" default folder.
/Users/<username>/.MakeMKV is the default, AFAIK.

Hi,

Having an issue with this disc. I am running the Win x86 version of MakeMKV, v1.8.0, registered, on XP. I always allow MakeMKV to connect to the internet to download the latest SVQs. I have included the MKB, LOG and dump files in a RAR that I will be sending to you via sendspace. Please let me know if there's anymore information I can send you to assist with troubleshooting.

Thanks in advance, it's been a great application for me thus far and this is the first version that's caused me any problems whatsoever.

I've emailed you the file via sendspace to svq@makemkv.com. If you didn't receive it, let me know and I will send you the direct link. In the RAR I have included the log, MKB and dump files. One additional note, the disc seems like it opens, as after the decryption process I do see "operation successfully completed" in the log. However from that point the application hangs for about a minute, until I get the "Fatal Error Occured, Program will now Exit" popup, which kills the app.

I have set the memory under IO to the lowest setting instead of auto based on some other feedback I saw on this forum as well.

I resolved this, turns out the issue is a strange one. I was able to get this rip working by connecting to a Citrix Access Gateway. Why would a CAG connection affect how MakeMKV works? I'm stumped. All I can think is that my PC user has a domain associated with Citrix, but I don't understand how that would affect the way a random application works.

I'm wondering if I logged out and logged back in with a second user I set up w/ admin priveleges and a local login (machine name, rather than domain) would get things working without the need of a CAG connection.

Sure enough when I logged in with my local admin account and tried to open the disc, it worked fine. Not sure why that would/should matter, but the issue is resolved.

Does anyone know if 800 or 802 is the correct title?

00800 is usually a safe bet, unless playlist obfuscation is used (but in the latter case 00800 is often unavailable, AFAIK).

I"m sorry if this is an extremely noob question.

I see only two possible options when I open the blu ray. Both have the same amount of chapters, file size, and duration. Only the “Source file name” and “Segment map” are different.

:arrow: Option #1 (Source file name: 00800.mpls) shows a segment mapping of 800, 802, 804
:arrow: Option #2 (Source file name: 00802.mpls) shows a segment mapping of 800, 803, 804

How could I know for sure, other than watching the movie back to back, which is the correct Source file :?: :?: :?:

With a relatively simple playlist like that, you can back up the disc(assuming you have the space), and play the middle file(or which ever one is different) and figure out what's what.

I am also having the same issue with this disk. I'm in the process of backing up both files, but it seems that it'll be difficult to determine which one is the actual movie unless I watch both of them. Does anyone know a better way to determine which title actually gets played by a bluray player?

Ok, just in case anyone cares, I figured out the difference between Title 2 and Title 5. In Title 2, there are burned-in English subtitles around minute 13 (and possibly elsewhere in the movie) that are not present in Title 5. So if you rip the English version of the movie, you should use Title 2.

I can confirm what was said above, the difference is one has forced English subtitles turned on and one doesn't.

Life of Pi

00800.mpls - does not have forced subtitles turned on
00802.mpls - has forced subtitles turned on

Check at minute 13 of the movie for forced subtitles.

I have the same problem, but I do not see the burned in subtitles. Strange. I have the two titles as posted before:
Titelinformationen
Name: Life of Pi (English)
Name der Quelldatei: 00800.mpls
Länge: 2:06:59
Anzahl der Kapitel: 28
Size: 32.5 GB
Segmentanzahl: 3
Segmentkarte: 800,802,804
Name der Ausgabedatei: title_14.mkv
Titelinformationen
Name: Life of Pi (English)
Name der Quelldatei: 00802.mpls
Länge: 2:06:59
Anzahl der Kapitel: 28
Size: 32.5 GB
Segmentanzahl: 3
Segmentkarte: 800,803,804
Name der Ausgabedatei: title_15.mkv
The only difference is 00802.m2ts vs 00803.m2ts. So I created a backup of the Blu-Ray and opend those two files and they are completely the same. I mean they differ in size, but I do not see a difference in the movie itself?!

You said the difference is visible at around minute 13, but as both use the 35:42 minute long file named 00800.m2ts it does not make really sense for me?!

00802/00803.m2ts shows this scene:
