Does this happen at a specific time of day?  I haven't noticed any issue from the States.

Ok, so it's just your "users" file.  Once your download completes, you should be able to copy the "USERS" files to your old database location and then open the old database.

Or if your old database location has .xBK (backup files) you could make a copy and rename them to the appropriate file extension for the "USERS" files.  For example, .DBK to .DAT or .IBK to .IDX.

Is the referenced database location and Collection.dat file still there?  Is it possible either the files were deleted or renamed?

Have you tried creating a new database and then manually opening the old database (collection.dat file)?

32 or 64-bit OS?  How much memory does it show that DVDProfiler is running and you get that error?

Or try a backup and restore to a new database.  I need to look at what I did when I moved my database over to a fresh install, it wasn't a backup but a manual move of select files.  It seemed to result in the database loading faster.

How much memory do you have available on your machine and how much is DVDProfiler using?

Well, in this case front and back cover of the existing profile are the front w/o rating. If there is a complete looking profile and only the scans are missing, I keep a DVD sealed as long as possible until I watch it, and scanning the outside always has the logo according to law, only turning around the "Wendecover" shows the version w/o logo.

Don't know if there should be rules.... like we have for "cover of first release" and the later ones aren't allowed so far (if they are modified in any way).


Re-reading your OP, either is correct, but it really comes down to personal preference.  Since you mentioned the profile has the front cover w/o logo twice, I'm assuming it uses the front cover for both the front and back images which means this was likely a placeholder image when this was originally submitted (likely a preorder at the time).  Were you attempting to submit scans of the front and back cover?

What title are you referring to anyway?

Yes, the contribution rules allow it and some releases have used stickers on the wrapping or removable stickers as it seems most do not like the huge ratings logo on the front cover as mandated by some countries.  Personally, I prefer a scan without the logo on the front cover if there is an option.

Here's the excerpt from the contribution rules:

Quote:
The inner sleeve may be used in lieu of the front cover as long as the only difference is the exclusion of sticker(s) or rating overlays.

The screeners are only a part of the equation with the voters being the other part.  The question is why do we have such disparate differences across the voters.  Yes, a piece of it comes down to some no voters having certain titles and not others, but that isn't the full picture.

I really do think some voters have gotten complacent and just vote "yes" most of the time.  What's even more perplexing are some voters that consistently vote on changes to long released titles that they don't even own.  You'll be surprised at those that keep tens of thousands of titles in their ordered or wishlist so they can vote on all changes.  Yes, some changes you can be confirmed by the cover art, but not all thus a lot of those votes for other information are just vote padding.

Create an alternate version for the disc(s).

Yeah, you can do it that way. I'm not a big fan of creating multiple profiles for the same disc. It's bad enough that we have umpteen different versions for different releases of a movie.


This is why cover art shouldn't be stored with a disc ID profile.  Discs get reused across multiple releases and now the database is fragmented with a million disc ID clones of the same disc.  Ok, maybe using a million was too strong.

Probably because the covers do have a UPC number, and it appears you submitted with Disc IDs, although all three have the same UPC.  I would try alternate UPCs since the covers have a UPC on them.

Found this on the MyMovies site and what they apparently did to get around the issue in Win10.  Bottom line, they updated their program to no rely on the Windows calls and manually calculating the disc IDs.

Just double-checking, the cdrom.sys driver that was used before Windows 10 update 1809 worked correctly in identifying the proper disc id?


Yes.

The underlying issue really lies with the faulty Disc IDs.  The reason for using the Disc ID is to avoid having duplicate profiles in the database when a given disc is shared across many releases.

Part of the problem with the way the database is setup however is that non-disc information is store with the Disc ID profiles since they use the same template/layout at the release profile.

Not sure I understand your question, but it seems House of Usher is the original title for Roger Corman's 1960 release which is based off of Edgar Allen Poe's short story "The Fall of the House of Usher".  However, The Fall of the House of Usher is an alternate title for Corman's work and is the title that was used in the UK.  It seems past media releases have used "The Fall of the House of Usher" for their media releases; maybe to also capitalize off of those familiar with Poe's short story.

I've fiound it happening far too often when people are using a Blu-ray as a base Profile for a DVD release and copying ALL the information across including the Blu-ray Disc ID and Audio Tracks.

We really are long overdue an update to the Contribution Rules.


I last heard they were working on an update to the contribution rules 2.5 years ago, but nothing materialized from that to my knowledge.

Who are the mods on this site? Can they explain why they've disappeared too?

Take notice of the disappearing SPAM in the New User Forum. Small but solid evidence of continuing moderation at least at that level.


To an extent, but there is still a lot of leftover spam, some of which I know I rated negatively, so it may be automated and is just dependent on getting so many negative votes.

People are still submitting new Disc IDs under Windows 10 with no tool to correct it. Sigh.


If you have AnyDVD and have it enabled you'll get the correct Disc ID.

Are you wanting to have other profiles (box sets) show with the "+" similar to the Police Academy example you provided?

If so, the profile with the "+" would be considered the Parent profile and the profiles that collapse/expand when the "+" is clicked would be considered the Child profiles.

In order to do that you need to have a Parent, or master profile.  Edit your Parent profile (Ctrl+E), select the Box Set Contents tab on the Edit Profile window, and Assign the selected Child Profiles to that Parent profile.  Once finished, make sure you select the Save & Close button.

In the Filters panel, select the Video tab and within the Dimensions group, check the 3D Blu-ray checkbox.

Note: the General tab is selected by default, the Video tab may be hidden to the right... just click on the right arrow located on the right of the panel to scroll to see the remaining tabs.

You shouldn't have had to pay for the program twice.  Given you mentioned you had to buy another license and you don't have access to your online collection, I'm guessing the issue is that you have an existing (older) account and you didn't sign in with that user name.

If you sign in with your original username you should be able to retrieve your license information by going to the Registration -> My Registration from the menu at the top of the site.

If you still have your original PC (or HDD), open DVDProfiler.  From the file menu, go to Tools -> Registration Information...  Select, View your Unlimited Registration Key and you can view your registration details which could be moved to your new computer.

As far as I know, they read the discs but they do not necessarily fullfil the encryption chain from the disc to the monitor, which is needed to play the discs and get a picture.


LG, for example, released updated firmwares which made reading UHDs disc not possible from Blu-ray BD-XL (UHD friendly) capable drives.  Newer drives came with the updated firmware.  One of my drives had the older firmware and one had the newer firmware (since downgraded).

There is no reason why BD-XL drives can't read them, but some manufacturers restrict it via firmware.  Plus you can't play them by default due to the encryption requirements levied by the BDA.

I have some UHD Friendly (BD-XL) drives that do read the discs.
