Can't watch the vids on the 2nd disc :?

#1 Post by Mackasfour » 03 Aug 2010 10:47

I can't even see them when I view the files on the disc. Anyone else have this?

Nope. Do you get any errors? Of not, could you make a prtsqrn of the cd in Explorer? Perhaps I may be of assistance.

Nah, no errors. Just not there. It's being read as an Audio CD, and my dvd player did the same too :?

What happens if you go to My Computer > rightclick on your cd-rom drive, explore (second option)?

Please forgive me if the wordings aren't entirely right, I'm doing this from memory.

I got such problems some years ago have you tried to open it with a burning tool (i suggest the freeware Imgburn it shows all tracks available on the disc)?

If you just see the audio tracks there should be a 7th track which is the data track.

You can compare it with the info i got from Imgburn about my second disc.
Disc Information:
Status: Complete
Erasable: No
Sessions: 2
Sectors: 311.246
Size: 637.431.808 bytes

-> Track 01 (Audio, 06:49:29, LBA: 0 - 30703)
-> Track 02 (Audio, 08:55:16, LBA: 30704 - 70844)
-> Track 03 (Audio, 03:35:55, LBA: 70845 - 87024)
-> Track 04 (Audio, 05:58:38, LBA: 87025 - 113912)
-> Track 05 (Audio, 04:41:73, LBA: 113913 - 135060)
-> Track 06 (Audio, 05:40:23, LBA: 135061 - 160583)

Session 2... (LBA: 171984 - 311245)
-> Track 07 (Mode 1, LBA: 171984 - 311245)
-> LeadOut (LBA: 311246)

Track Information:
Session 1...
-> Track 01 (LTSA: 0, TS: 30704, LRA: 0)
-> Track 02 (LTSA: 30704, TS: 40141, LRA: 0)
-> Track 03 (LTSA: 70845, TS: 16180, LRA: 0)

-> Track 05 (LTSA: 113913, TS: 21148, LRA: 0)
-> Track 06 (LTSA: 135061, TS: 25523, LRA: 0)
Session 2...
-> Track 07 (LTSA: 171984, TS: 139262, LRA: 0)
EDIT: Do you have other multi session CDs (audio and data session) and are they working?

It's strange that NB would release a cd that requires a little-known and specialised program such as ImgBurn.

Oh well. Could you try your setting? In Explorer, choose 'tools', second tab, and see if there's something checked that should't be checked.

You need to use the code that you get with your digipack and activate it on the NB site, there will be tabs with the stuff you can download. Thats where you download the videos. I read it yesterday in the topic about the online activation site that supposedly gives you "Exclusive material"

EDIT:
Here is the topic http://www.blind-guardian.com/forum/vie ... =2&t=37774

and here is the quote:

Edit: the 2 Videos from the CD (A Journey Through The Edge Of Time and Sacred Video Clip), Valkyries (Demo), 3 Wallpapers and a Picture Gallery.

Damn, there are no Widescreen Wallpapers but the Sacred video is pretty cool, high quality. 1 Wallpaper is the "At The Edge Of Time" Cover and 2 other Band Wallpapers. The Valkyries Demo is good.

Sorry, no the videos are not on the cd, it's just written on it.

Open Windows Media Player, click "open file" and select the CD .. there should be the two videos... that's at least how I found them.. they did not appear when I clicked "play disc" or opened the disc file itself, either :S

That's just because you linked those files with your winamp program (or better to say winamp does it if you are not changing the settings during installation, but it can be changed afterwards as well. Or windows made some wrong icon links, which happens from time to time ;) )

Hm, I had no problems at all. I found the files immediately (like Arwen said, they appeared as Winamp files), and opened them with DivX.

Windows Media Player + K-lite codec pack Mega FTW. No need for any other software since it can play almost all audio and video files.
