Harmy's DEED SW Pause Problem

Author
Time

Seems like a good idea to ask the experts here first:

Does anyone know why my burn has about a 1 second pause when Solo asks the troopers at the bottom of the gangplank if they can give us a hand with the scanning equipment. Is the laser changing layers (because it’s a very clean pause)? Bad Burn? Bad source file? The rest of the disc seems perfect. Suggestions on how to fix this?

I used solkap’s instructions for the burn, a Verbatim BD-R DL (50GB), lowest burn speed with Verify on, used ImageBurn, an Alienware 17 i9 laptop with 16 GB, ASUS 16X Writer USB 3.0.

Thanks in advance!

I’d say it’s a bad source file. There are a lot of re-encodes of DeEd out there, mostly to reduce the file size. If you verify your checksums for your original download in the DeEd thread, that would rule that problem out. The only other option would be a bad burn, media problem, or something like that. Layer change transitions should be irrelevant in the Blu-ray world. Also don’t try to load up your Blu-ray with too many optional tracks – Blu-ray does have limits, and there are enough audio and subtitle tracks out there that it’s possible to go over them.

I’m fairly computer literate but I’ve never done a checksum before. Can you provide a link or some guidance on this? Cheers!

Well, you’d need to know what you were comparing against first. Typically there’s an MD5 or an SHA-1 checksum of the download either in the first post, or you can ask about it in the thread. Then, depending on what type of checksum it is, you’d download some appropriate tool and it would tell you the checksum of the file you downloaded. If it’s a match, the file is correct.

Looks like SW DeEd 2.5’s checksums are here:

File Name: Star.Wars.Despecialized.Edition.v2.5.mkv
CRC32: 42A67CC6
MD5: E52CC005E48931EF3DF336361DD1A142
SHA-1: 6CA73976E347CD6791DC31B4FCC758F0E5AD265E
SHA-256: 31C4BA98D4A14A71B6DA13830F1C3C508CBF93C89A348D382F76070A23588D6B

And 2.7 is here:

File Name: Star.Wars.Despecialized.Edition.v2.7.mkv
CRC-32: 86C303FB
MD5: 5D26CD805E0E6AAAA3E031A9712E5E2B
SHA-1: F7DAF6EB6292F867D18DBFB1C55C19A13450C696

You didn’t say which version you had, but I’d recommend 2.7.

This tool lets you verify file checksums on Windows (haven’t used it personally):

Ok, first I’ve got the 2.7 version and when I extract the .rar files (such as “Star Wars Despecialized 2.7 BD50.part001”) I get the single .iso file “Star Wars Despecialized 2.7 BD50”

When running the checksum utility on it, I get these values:
MD5: FE7CDEF0D9028661CFE41F6529074762
SHA-1:217177D9982CD6B023F302C83F1DB4188AB1A3DB
SHA-256: 715F5D323A4B6A71D3F5A570C0218C85A4049B39FA2E2E616053BD5DF329AEED
SHA-512: DEC798A9B61F6B243C4C6059060836BFF012CED2C1A9EA197907149B5B14AB36E1E4F1A9CA79032428D9D90808658304799CFF355B637C472F25818DE29794C7

I don’t see a Matroska file in my downloads. To be more precise, the only file found in the folder “Star Wars Despecialized 2.7 MKV” are the “Subtitles Project Threepio v9.1”

(There was an AVCHD .rar compressed version that I couldn’t find the extraction password to and therefore couldn’t open.)

Thank you so much for your help with this. I’m really looking forward to a flawless copy!
