Ripped Blu Ray ISO cannot play

15 Jul 2014, 01:42

Hi,
I have used AnyToISO to rip to ISO for a few Blu-Ray Titles and they all work fine on my player accept two titles.
These two titles however only work when I play the original Blu Ray disc but the ripped ISO file displays a message that says I need to update my Blu Ray player's firmware before I can play - Avatar 3D & I, Robot 3D. There may be more, I am in the process of ripping my whole library to a HDD.

NOTE: My Blu Ray player can also play videos (ISO files) off a hard disc attached via USB.

Any suggestion or fixes for this?

Can you update your Blu-Ray player's firmware?

The Blu Ray player has already been updated to the latest firmware.
I can play the Original Blu Ray disc on this player.
It only fails when I try to play the ripped ISO on the same Blu Ray player (this player can play ISO files).

So, I tried another software to rip the Blu Ray Discs to ISO for Avatar 3D and I, Robot 3D and apparently it is NOT the Blu Ray player's firmware !!
The rip from this other software works!
I now point my Blu Ray player to the ISO file on the HDD and the player plays the movie as though it were a Blu Ray disc.

Developer: Can this be fixed in the AnyToISO software please?

BTW found another Blu Ray disc that has the same problem, - Prometheus 3D.

Disk to ISO feature will be improved and fixed soon.

Which software did you use that worked fine for these disks?

Maybe these Blue-ray disks are copyright protected and DVDFab is able to bypass protection.

Can you please compare the site (in bytes) of ISO file created by AnyToISO and DVDFab of the same Blu-ray disk. Thanks.

I know for sure the size for Avatar 3D - 50.05GB
This is the exact same size for AnyToISO and DVDFab and another free Blu-Ray to ISO ripper I found.
All don't work accept DVDFab.

I meant this:

AnyToISO -> 1.iso (50.xxx.xxx.xxx bytes)
DVDFab -> 2.iso (50.xxx.xxx.xxx bytes)

Need to know exact number of bytes in each ISO file.

OK that exact info I don't have because I deleted the failed ISOs.
Give me time I will re-rip.

Re-ripped Avatar and the size is exactly the same for both AnyToISO & DVDFab = 50,050,629,632
In OS X, I used "Get Info" for each of the files to get the file size info.

Ok, the size for avatar is the same. Are both ISOs played fine with your player?

No.
The AnyToISO one fails and gives the "Firmware update ..... required for player etc".
The other one plays ok.

Can you create a diff file in Terminal?

diff 1_anytoiso.iso 2_dvdfab.iso > text_diff_for_crystalidea.txt

Hi,
I will need to re-rip Avatar again but using your "Terminal command" to compare two other rips of the same movie - One ripped by AnyToISO (not successfully) and the same file ripped by another ripper (successfully) - Terminal just returns a text file with the message that they "differ" i.e.

Binary files/Volumes/xxx...... and /Volumes/yyy...... differ

Rgds.

There's nothing I can help you with at the moment. Probably
- there's an issue with the way AnyToISO rips Blue-ray in relation with your Blue-ray player
as you can see these ISO are valid and can be mounted in Finder
- or these Blue-ray disks are copyright protected and DVDFab is able to bypass protection, which is not actually legal
- a bug in AnyToISO?... hard to check because we need exact disks and exact model of the player
