MakeMKV sounds familiar... Might give it a shot... That isn't the one that requires you to use another tool to rip the audio tracks is it?
Not that I know of, but some Sony discs have that weird Cinavia stuff that screws up the audio. I don't think it can handle that, but DVDFab's HD Decrypter definitely could, so maybe you'll have to use some combination of the two.msgeek said:MakeMKV sounds familiar... Might give it a shot...

Awesome! Thanks!Buzz201 said:I can confirm it works with my external optical blu-ray drive (I wasn't 100% sure it was optical, but I googled it).
It's making the right noises with my Region A copy of Kick-Ass on blu-ray, I'll see in a minute if it works (It's been running for almost 3 minutes now)...
Edit: Yup, definitely working fine with my optical drive.
My optical drive is a Samsung drive from the UK.Jatz said:Awesome! Thanks!
By the way, is your optical drive from the UK or did you get it from the US or something?
I don't really know about nor have I used MakeMKV so I could be wrong, but the only audio tracks that may need re-encoding are PCM.msgeek said:MakeMKV sounds familiar... Might give it a shot... That isn't the one that requires you to use another tool to rip the audio tracks is it?
I've been using MakeMKV recently (for entirely legit purposes, I hasten to add) and this rings a bell. Not sure when I'll next get a chance to sit down and tinker with it, but I'll try to remember to check this out and report back on it.Mangaranga said:I don't really know about nor have I used MakeMKV so I could be wrong, but the only audio tracks that may need re-encoding are PCM.
With MKVMerge you can mux an MKV with DTS HD/DTHD tracks but not PCM.
You can buy a BD drive for £20? I'll need to hunt one of those down then.Mangaranga said:Don't knock cheap BD Drives. My sub £20 Liteon BDROM drive is far better built, more reliable and faster when it comes to showing the files on disc than the £60 LG drive I have (which also came with one of the crappy mainstream programs to play discs). I literally use the LG drive just for dumping discs to the HDD since its 2-3x faster.
Funnily enough the LG drive in this case is the only one which has ever damaged a disc - scratching it so that a certain scene would freeze on some players and the PC itself. I think there might have been something on the bottom of the disc which caused it though since it was covered in smudge marks when I checked afterwards. My PS3 did technically strip the plastic off of the side of my HOTD disc years ago too, but it's still functional...HdE said:I bought a Samsung USB Blu Ray drive earlier this year for £55.00. I'd looked at a lot of the cheaper drives, and too many of them came with horror stories of limited lifespans and even, in a few cases, damage to discs for my liking.
Yeah they are. Having previously bought a 2 year sub I actually got a discount on upgrading to a lifetime sub too.Shiroi Hane said:Are they doing them again? I bought a lifetime subscription years ago when they said they would no longer be offering them.
