Bluray Ripping Challenges

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well, looks like I am having a hard time ripping some of my Blu discs. I have an Samsung BD-ROM drive that I have had for I am thinking almost 2 years....when I first got it I had no trouble ripping my Blu movies (yes, ones I bought new and own).

Now, I can't seem to really rip anything. Using Clown BD I constantly get 'Audio Track is not Clean' messages and the "Source file is damaged......" message. With MakeMKV once it begins the process it gives me errors and eventually fails, claiming the source files are corrupted, which I know are not. I have tried several BD discs, all well cared for and no fingerprints, cracks or scratches on the discs (I'm very anal about taking care of my media collection).

I have a possible feeling.....drive failure? Even with a few DVD's I have tried, it did the same thing (in MakeMKV). The same DVD ripped perfectly in my much older Pioneer DVD drive that I had for over 7 years with no problems. I was surely hoping it was not my discs or else I would've been very pissed! The BD drive itself hasn't been used that often so if it indeed is going bad, what's a good drive that is reliable and will last? I can't even rip the new BD's I recently bought now as I have to put on hold until I get the drive issue solved.

I hate equipment failures! mad.gif

Not sure how to diagnose possible hardware failure other than try just AnyDVDHD with no "extra" software. I bought my Blu-Ray drive I think in 2008 it is a Lite-On IHES106 (obviously now discontinued). I have used it continuously for all those years with zero problems, ripping, playing various movie discs and music discs. Never had a disc it won't play or rip. (not exactly true it is not universal so no SACD or DVD-A not a drive problem just what it is) So that's a recommendation for Lite-On.

Well the thing is, AnyDVD HD does read the disc fine and Clown BD goes through the motions of selecting the playlist, where to save, etc. The problem comes when it actually rips the disc. Even when I had ripped the disc as an ISO, I still have those errors in the programs.

Have you tried ripped straight from the disc with MakeMKV with other programs (AnyDVD) disabled?
Are you able to make an ISO using AnyDVD built in ripper?

If neither of these work than I'd say its either a bad disc or drive, and since its happening on everything its probably the drive.

I have a LG WH14NS40 and have never had any issues ripping a BD/DVD with AnyDVD or MakeMKV, its pretty fast too.

Yes, I tried ripping the disc with MakeMKV with AnyDVD off, and did a rip with AnyDVD to an ISO file, which took a long time but succeeded. But of course when trying to process the ISO in Clown or MakeMKV, the error message still appear.

In trying several BD discs all turned out the same, so I'm sure its the drive. Tested a good DVD in the same BD drive with no success, but in an older HD-DVD drive I have, it worked with no issues.

Its a Samsung BD drive, so looks like they aren't that good. So I will check into either an LG or LiteOn model.
