Thanks Fengtao

Thanks Fengtao!

Thank you for the fast fix…

for The Reader and Spinter, it got past initial dialog ‘Open DVD source’ (with and without ‘path Player’) where I could briefly see the files, then - before I could even tell it to do anything it crashed.

Hello Fengtao, thank you for the updates. The open Blu-ray folder in harddrive is fixed and the video preview is cool.

I do have one problem so far: reading Blu-ray ISO files previously ripped by AnyDVD HD with all protection intact, DVDFab crashed. The details are:

  • Narnia blu-ray ISO (AACS v7, no BD+): DVDFab scan fine and showing the titles but after 1 second it crashed and the “Report - Info” window appears where you can input your name, email etc and send the crashdump.dmp, errorlog etc.
  • Madagascar 2 ISO (AACS v12, no BD+): DVDFab scan very quick but nothing shows on the screen.

Is there any plan to “shrink” blu-ray to BD25, BD9 or BD5? Full and movie only? :bow:

thanks

The same with Seven Pounds

Thanks for the update Fengtao and crew

Ok, now for the strange part. If I start DVDfab and than insert the disk and let DVDFab scan full disk then go to Main Movie everything is fine except previewer does not work. I did not view the full movie yet, but on a quick scan it looks fine!

Hi ConfusedNeophyte, ChicKC, please check Preview settings, and make sure “DirectShow” is used.

Thanks Fengtao,

In my case that solved the problem.:flower:

Great News as i haven’t visted the site for a while !

Why don’t we see the latest updates posted under the download section of dvdfab.com anymore, the last update posted is V5.2.3.2 dates January 22nd 2009 ?

Thanks

Thank you Fengtao !! Appreciate your hard work ~ Mike

The Beta releases are [I]never[/I] posted on Fengtao’s homepage, only here on cdf.

Have there been no stable releases since January, have all other releases only gone to Beta ?
If so when will the Beta releases be made available for normal downloads on the site

As was already stated, Beta versions have never been posted on the DVDFab site. Only official versions are posted there. Beta is just what it means and it’s posted here for people to try and to give feedback for any bugs found to get worked out.

Is anybody having trouble with Seven Pounds (R1, US)? It opens just fine, but when I go to copy it, it has a read error at only 4.33 percent into the copy process. I clicked “Ignore All” and it’s not doing anything. (It’s still open and running right now as I type.) Should I send the IFO files? Or does anyone kno of a fix for the movie. I’m running the latest beta, and trying to copy in Full Disc mode…but no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Oh. Crap. Sorry everybody for that last post. You can ignore it. I wasn’t paying attention. I thought I was using the latest beta…but I just realized 5.3.2.1 came out. haha I was still on 5.3.2.0. So I downloaded 5.3.2.1 and Seven Pounds is working fine now. :slight_smile: Again, sorry. lol

Perhaps I have overlooked a response to the question posted by Zaina in post #6 (Is there any plan to “shrink” blu-ray to BD25, BD9 or BD5? Full and movie only?) If so, pls accept my apology.

It seems as though that question or a suggestion for same was mentioned earlier in the initial DVDFab release containing Blu Ray. Again, I could be mistaken, but I thought Fengtao, at that time, made a positive comment concernng same.

I stand to be corrected…
