Leawo seems to play the movie and extras fine. The menus seem to work alright and I can play the features. I just can’t skip through the movie as it just stays on the last image displayed but the sound changes to the time I skipped to. Also, the chapters don’t seem to function as the result is as stated above. I’m not sure if this is a Leawo thing or something to do with my ISO. I still kept all of my .rar’s so I can extract it again.

Edit: Well I thought I still had the .rar’s. Apparently Windows doesn’t like it when you have both the .rar files and the ISO in your recycling bin. Now there are like 4 .rars left. Still have ISO though.

If you have 7zip installed on Windows, you can right-click on any file and obtain various checksums. For the “Star Wars Despecialized 2.7 BD50.iso” file, I have the following details:

File size - 49,773,346,816 bytes
SHA-1 checksum - 2171 77D9 982C D6B0 23F3 02C8 3F1D B418 8AB1 A3DB

I “forced-checked” my file against the Spleen torrent with no errors, so the above figures should be correct. If your checksum matches mine, then you can rest assured that your iso has been downloaded and extracted correctly.

I actually have this issue too. I also figured it had something to do with Leawo. My hunch is it has something to do with differences between burned media and commercial discs. That opinion, however, isn’t based on much actual knowledge or evidence.

For me, though, I’m calling it good. The discs seem to work fine in blu-ray players, and the mounted ISO works fine on computers.

But if anyone has any ideas on what might be causing the ability to play the discs but not navigate around in them on computers.

I think it could be the Leawo Player - my ‘Cyberlink PowerDVD 16’ player plays and navigates/skips through the films (.iso files located on the computer) - just fine.

I find that answer vague and unconvincing. Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

I compared our file sizes and it appears that they are the same. I didn’t have 7zip, so I installed it and ran the checksum for SHA1 (took about 7min) and it said:

217 177 9982 CD6 B023 F302 C83 F1 DB4 188 AB1 A3DB (Spaces for ease of reading there weren’t any on the actual thing)

So it also looks like our files are the same also (hoping that I typed it right)

And also, while burning my dual layer blu-rays, I did make sure that I selected “Write Image File to Disk” for all of the attempts.

Yes, it is the same. Checksums are very cleverly designed so that even the tiniest difference between files will result in large differences in checksums i.e. you can tell they are different at a glance. There is a remote chance that two different files would have precisely the same SHA-1 checksum (about 1 in 16^40 for files of this size).

7 minutes for that checksum is pretty good compared to my PC! It took about half an hour on mine, but my PC is 5 years old now.

Try testing your disc with a program such as that recommended by oojason above. If you use vlc (which is free and available as portable software - don’t know about other programs), then be aware that you may not get the main movie on njvc’s Blurays to play on your PC. But all extras and menus should work fine with vlc. My disc works fine in all respects in my standalone Sony Bluray player from about 2008.

Alright, I put my burnt blu-ray back into my burner and tried playing it with both vlc and leawo. What suprised me was that it actually played just like my iso file. Made me wonder whether or not it was the discs, or some sort of DRM problem on the PS4 and my old panasonic player. I was thinking this because I remember both being able to play the raw AVCHD video file that was like 8gb from HARMY that I burned into other discs.

It also looks like my Panasonic DMP BD60 doesn’t have the proper firmware support to play iso image files either. I’ll try figuring out if it needs an update or not.

Update: YES THATS WHAT THE PROBLEM WAS. I NEEDED TO UPDATE THE FIRMWARE ON MY PANASONIC. Kind of a pain in the ass though because I had to lug the fucker from the living room into my room with the router and then hook it up to my TV.

Yay, I no longer need to buy new discs. They work perfectly fine thank you guys so much for helping me out. 😃

This has me concerned about your method. Are you saying that your disc has an ISO file on it? Like you put the disc in and then mount the ISO and play that in VLC? You need to burn the image to disc.

See my post on the previous page for more info - this is what I thought might be happening. It’s not a DRM/player issue, it’s the burning method (I think).

Sorry, I think I may have written that wrong. For the vlc thing, I did in fact burn the disc in the burner. Later, I put the same disc back in the burner and had it try reading it through both vlc and leawo.

Okay. It’s the idea that your blu-ray players don’t have ISO support that’s confusing me. They don’t need to play an ISO, they just need to play a disc. An ISO is an image of a disc, but when you burn it as an ISO, it just puts the whole layout of the original disc onto the new one. You should not have an .ISO file on the disc.

When you put the disc in your computer and browse the files, do you see a BDMV file on the root of the disc?

Yes, and a certificate folder. I finally managed to get it to play on my panasonic by updating it. Problem now is I don’t know if my panasonic can play dual layer discs, because up to the 1:05:32 mark, it is on the first layer, but after that, it acts like it is trying to get the second layer but then just goes back to the main menu.

I still don’t understand why it needed new firmware. You burned the image with a program like imgburn and not just windows explorer right?

i am gonna guess it was 100 years old and just couldn’t handle a non-commercial disk (one without encryption) correctly. or whatever. don’t need to figure out how he fixed it.

Ps4 should definitely work without issue. If it is now working on a panasonic, it must be a media quality issue for ps4.

Thank you for sharing this fantastic collection - I am downloading the whole set as fast as I can!

Can anyone help me locate links to download DVD copies of the fanedit movies that are referenced on the blu-ray inserts? They are Star Wars Revisited, Pulp Empire and War Of The Stars Pts 1 & 2

You’re welcome!

As far as those fan edits go, you’ll probably have better luck looking around in a few different spots on this site. I set this thread up to help with the NJVC sets, but there are other discussions devoted to Star Wars Revisited, Pulp Empire and War Of The Stars. You can use use a custom google search of this site. Enter your search as shown below and that should help to get you pointed in the right direction:

Revisited is on fanedit.info, I put it there a few months ago. Not sure about the other two but they might also be there.

Thanks for your help, it’s much appreciated. I’ve been able to find Star Wars Revisited at the SWRevisited blog page, and a DVD-5 version of War Of The Stars at fanedit.info - so just Pulp Empire left to go!

Hello all. I’m checking in on this thread to make sure everything is going smoothly. I’ve had at least 60 people access my post on pro-boards, so everything looks like it’s going slowly, but smoothly.

Just to let everyone know, I have an hefty work & school load coming up over the next eight weeks, so posting from me might be sparse.

But I’ll check in when I can. Keep posting here if anyone runs into any issues with the links.

Is this only NJVC’s 50GB version? I’m totally fine with downloading that one (making a gift set for my father-in-law) but I had initially planned to go with the smaller sized version.

Downloaded and burned ANH and ESB. One more to go, and all is well! Thank you so much for uploading this! As per the previous discussion with Boxmonkey’s issues, I used the exact same Blu Ray pack “Smart Buy 10 Pack Bd-r Dl Printable White Inkjet 50gb 6x Blu-ray Double Layer Recordable Disc Blank Data Video Media 10-discs Spindle” and played it in my PS4 just fine. I did end up with one coaster trying to burn at 1x, but when I realized ImgBurn said the disk supported 2,4,and6x I changed it to 2x and it worked fine. The only difference in setup is the burner, as mine is an LG Slim. Thanks again!!!
