    I am trying to use MKVTools (Mac) to extract subtitles from two older BDs - Battle of Britain and A Bridge Too Far. Both have extensive non-English dialog, and I want to burn-in those forced subs.

    I have the latest version of MakeMKV (1.7.1) which now names its rips "t00_Movie_Name.mkv". From this type of file, I have successfully extracted (using MKVTools), converted, remuxed and burned subtitle files for a number of movies. However, when ripping the above two movies, the file I get has the old naming protocol "title00.mkv" and is not recognised by MKVTools.

    Anyone else having the same issue? I need to be able to extract the forced subs but, if MKVTools won't recognise the files, I need another option. I'm also flummoxed as to why MakeMKV names these two movies differently to everything else I have ripped with the latest version. I've even tried ripping the movies without the subtitle tracks, and I still get the same result - old name style and a file that I can't open in MKVTools.

    TIA

    Now running v1.7.2. CE3K won't copy at all, Hunt for Red October works perfectly. Still at a loss. Any help would be appreciated.
