Talk to Apple about the problem. The subtitles may be on the video itself and not on a separate track.

 

You didn't replay about a commercial disc question.

 

 

 

yes its commercial......if the subtitles are on the video itself then why are they not on it if I view the DVD normally?

 

Creator 10 sees the seperate audio tracks and I remove the check marks with no avail

So where does this movie come from??? How did you obtain it to copy?

 

I know there are some Movies that include the ability to do what you want right on the disc, but I have never tried it???

 

 

 

I actually own the movie, it's illegal to copy your own movie for personal use if you bought it?

Yes, as gpb says…

 

I was hoping this was one of the newer exception provisions we are seeing these days to accommodate PC or ipod type watching…

 

 

thanks for informing me guys, guess paying $30 dollars for a blu ray entitle you to nothing!

Only to watch the movie in your own house - you can't even bring it to a bar and let anyone else watch it

 

Actually one of the cop shops over here was fined for playing a commercial CD for everybody to listen to.

 

All you got were rights to watch it in your own home - nothing else

Two of the ones that I have purchased, in the past few months, come with an extra disc that put in your drive. It is a free version that you can copy to your hard drive, or copy to your iPod, but you have to go through iTunes, to actually download to your computer.

 

It is free, though.

Stupid question after reading this post.

 

If it's illegal to make a copy for an ipod or PS3, or to place a copy on a media server and store the DVD away so it doesn't get wrecked, why even give the option to remove subtitles....languages, etc.

 

If you don't know the answer to this question, why not just say so?

Because I can make a DVD that has languages, subtitles etc and I might want to delete them :blink:

There are other Legal programs to convert Movies to play on your Computer or iPod. What allows them to work is that they install safeguards on your PC to prevent copying for anything but closely limited personal use.

 

This is a DVD disc that came with my BD STAR TREK movie:

But whatever I try leads to that warning message. Follow the rules and I can have a personal use 'copy'.

 

Perhaps Roxio will add that ability sometime but the studios may not want to distribute too widely. ;)

Duplicating commercial DVDs or removing CSS protection may be illegal in Northern Ireland and the United States, however it isn't currently illegal in Canada, which is where I purchased and use my copy of Creator 2010. The principle is called "fair use", and has been a part of copyright law in most places for a very long time. It's quite useful when, like me, you have small children who beat the crap out of any DVDs they get their hands on. I don't buy the movie, but I do buy a license to view it, which doesn't cease to exist when my three year old drags the disk on the floor.

 

I'm having the same problem as the original poster. When I open the options in the Roxio Video Copy and Convert application in Creator 2010, and deselect the subtitles, select "none" in the subtitles box, deselect "all" in the audio options box, or any combination of the foregoing, my selection doesn't "take" (ie. if I go back into the options after closing out of them, it reselects the subtitles and undoes any other changes I've made). The software then converts a version of the video file with subtitles which cannot be turned off when the video is replayed. I can see no way of changing the default selections. Any suggestions?

Tim, you are dead wrong. It is illegal in Canada to duplicate commercial DVD's. Fair Use does not apply to movie DVDs.

 

Roxio is, or was, a Canada based software company. Perhaps, if you don't believe me, you can ask them.

I have the same problem... I had no such issues with Roxio 2009. But 2009 won't work with Windows 7. I am guessing it is a bug and it will be fixed soon, if not, then it is the last time I will ever purchase a Roxio product. If the makers really wanted to prevent us from ripping commercial dvds, they might make it harder that just leaving the subtitles in.

 

Why even give us the option of removing subtitles if the option doesn't work? Plus.... not all dvd's (training videos, personal videos) are copyrighted and thus we should have the ability to remove subtitles if they exist.

 

This has to be a bug... and it must get fixed....soon I hope.

The only 'bug' is the LAW.

 

It's illegal - unfortunately no software company can fix that

 

Yopu are quite at liberty to try another authoring program if you want to spend the money on it - and then find out that it won't do it either for exactly the same reasons

I have non-copyright material with subtitles - can you tell me how to remove those? I am sorry, but it is only illegal if you want to copy copyrighted material.

Why put the option of removing subtitles only for it not to work?

Dasher - then you do NOT have the 'same problem'. The other posters were referring to removing subtitles from COMMERCIAL discs

 

It's always better to start a new thread, say exactly what you are doing and how - then we can take it from there with no confusion
