I seem to be having an issue with some DVD ISOs playing back just fine while others don’t; the end result is the dreaded, “Unable to play the selected file” message. This is rather annoying as all of the ISOs are able to play back in VLC without issue.
The ISOs have been made from original DVDs that I own, and have not been altered (conversion from DVD9 to DVD5, RCE removal, etc.) in any way; they are straight backups of the discs that I have purchased over the years. The ISOs were created using 4Media DVD Copy under OSX 10.6.2. Transport to the player is via an SMB share from the NAS (FreeNAS 0.7.1).
I should point out that the failure rate on this is hovering at around 80% right now, and that the problem seems to be affecting both Region 1 and Region 2 DVD ISOs equally. This is making me a very unhappy customer; I’m getting close to making the 80-mile round-trip to return this thing to Best Buy and just getting a region-free DVD player.
Does anyone have any idea what the issue may be? I’m not interested in using a file format other than .ISO to back up my DVDs, so need to stick with that.
