Best way to use WD HD TV Media Player? - Page 2

post #31 of 44
I read this thread last week while waiting on my WD HD TV arriving in the mail. So I ripped a few of the kids cd's usind dvdshrink to ISO. The player arrived today and when I set it up it is only recognising AVI files not the iso. Anyone had this problem.

I'm having problems too. I ripped some movies using DVD Shrink and any DVD. Some work, some work without sound, and some don't work at all. I tried clone DVD and it works in stereo mode. Is there a way to rip to MP4?

Does it see the .iso but won't play it or it doesn't se .iso files at all? Were the .ISOs made from regular DVD video discs?

It may be that DVDShrink did not defeat the copyright on the DVD itself when it ripped it. You may want to try DVDFab or one of the other rippers and see if that works.

I've watched at least a dozen ISOs created with DVD Shrink.

Note: make sure that the name of their folder does not start with "."
For example
.Flicks
will be ignored, whereas IOSs in
Flicks
will show up

I've been using the WD HD Tunner for 4 days now and here are my findings.

After latest firmware upgrade 1.02.07:

To add cover art, take your favorite .jpg of the movie's cover, and drop it inside the folder where the .mvk or whichever file format file is. Name that EXACTLY the same as your video file. Ex, death_race_HD_movie.mvk death_race_HD_movie.jpg. The image must be in .jpg format. The folder in which the video file recides, along with the icon of the video file itself will also display the image file. This only works for thumbnail view.

You can add an image even to other folders by adding your favorite image (in my case I have a Blu-Ray and a DVD folder, I added the blu-ray logo to the blu-ray folder. Just drop inside the folder the .jpg file and name it FOLDER. That simple.

If you rip to .mvk (I use MakeMVK), it will keep all your surround (DB5.1 and DTS) and image quality true to original in one file. So you don't end up with a bunch of little files to sort through. I rip only the main movie, the audio tracks and the subtitles.

ISO's do play, but are buggy specially with Blu-rays. Audio cuts off, audio track defaults to some foreign language and they are huge! None of these problems are present when ripped to .mvk.

I cannot get subtitles to work for some reason.

On the new firmware, you can select different chapters as you play the blu-ray which is very nice.

Hope this helps.

To make your ISO files display cover art all you have to do is put a jpg file in the same folder as your ISO with the same EXACT name as your ISO. This is how I get it to display cover art for my DVD ISO files anyway

I use Imageburn to make an ISO out of my DVDS and put them on external hard drives. The menus, surround sound, et al are preserved in the ISO. Then I just plug my hard drive into the USB port on the WE HD TV Media Player. I've done several hundred dvds this way and they all play perfectly. In fact you don't have the digital effects you sometimes get playing the dvds directly on a dvd player. Hope this helps

dvdshrink does not remove the copy protection. if you have anydvd running in the background (not free) then that will do the trick...

Forgot to mention I use anydvd in conjunction with ImageBurn when I am copying a dvd

WDTV doesn't support ISOs.

If you are talking about the Western Digital WD TV Live Plus Unit, I play ISOs on it all the time. I use Imageburn to burn the ISOs and so far have had no trouble playing them. I did have to get a firmware upgrade though for it although that was a long time ago.
