Cannot open medium.

    I'm trying to back up one of my Blu-ray movies: "Francofonia" and it doesn't open in my CloneBD. I get the following message: Cannot open medium. Unable to open the selected medium. Could not generate hash.
    I have no problems playing the Blu-ray on my television.

    Another problem I have with CloneBD is that when I insert a movie it opens 9 different boxes of the Blu-ray.
    Only one indicates the drive that has the blu-ray.

    Thanks,

    Montevideano

    Hopefully someone can explain what all this means. What's "couldnt generate Hash". Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    That usually happens with read errors or corrupt sectors on the disc.
    CloneBD tries to generate a hash value to identify the disc, but the data appears to be scrambled or somehow broken.
    An AnyDVD log file might help.

    You possibly opened an ISO or folder with that disc previously - maybe several times from different locations?
    I don't know. But it should go away, if you open CloneBD's settings and click on "clear cache".

    Pete,
    Thank you very much for your response. I did clear the cache and it resolved the issue of showing several blu-ray boxes.
    I have the AnyDVD log file. Hope it help solve the problem, or at least have an understanding of what's going on.
    Thank you very much for your assistance.

    OK, thanks for the log file:

    Code:
     11.48s: read sectors failed, sense 3:11:5      // **** L-EC UNCORRECTABLE ERROR
    
    nothing exciting, it's just a bad disc (or, less likely, drive), you should get a replacement.

    I got this error on a couple disks I'm in the process of re-ripping, but ONLY if I do it directly from the ISO I ripped using AnyDVD-HD. If I open that ISO in CloneBD I get the error.

    However, if I mount the same ISO in VCD first, it opens and rips fine in CloneBD as if I were using the physical disk.

    Is VCD somehow correcting any errors in the ISO? It's bizarre to me.

    Please create a NEW topic (not resurrect a 2.5yr old dead topic) and provide more info, logfile(s)...

    Sorry sir. I actually had a draft created for a new post because I had never seen a thread about this before, but as a hail mary I decided to search for the error and found this one so I canceled my draft.

    I don't have any issue doing what you say, but if it's as simple as "same problem" (which I thought Pete may be able to answer easily) why create a new thread for someone to look at if there's nothing new to see?

    Because this topic has been dead for nearly 3 years, then there's the "issue" that if you don't have the exact same title as the montevideano, then you have a SIMILAR but not the same problem.
