Movie is from the 90’s , a guy stumbles back home to his hometown bar, (?) and sees his friends, then proceeds to describe his recent experiences of being captured by and taken by aliens till his release. It may be based on a real life experience similar to the Betty and Barney Hill story . But is not the same. I was sure it was called ‘The Arrival ‘ but it is Not the Charlie Sheen vehicle from 1996.
Its been gnawing on me all day and can’t put my finger on this.
Ideas??

well answer wasn't of any help .. :
re: 

Thank you for your response.

With reference to your query, please be advised that PowerDVD 17 is a playback software and it is unable to generate a Disk-ID manually. Also, PowerDVD 17 will automatically read the inserted Disk as long as it is within the supported disk type of the software itself.

We suggest to either contact the hardware manufacturer of your CD/DVD Drive or Windows, as the recent update for Windows 10 might affecting the performance and compatibility of your CD/DVD Drive.

Please feel free to contact us back for further clarification or assistance related to CyberLink Products. Use the link below to get back to us.

Never had this situation before until recently ..  My DVD's which carry the disc ID embedded in them  and has mysteriously changed ..

Idea of course is I open up my data bank ,, or Invelos Program of my title and by inserting a dvd into the DVD/cdrom tray of my PC windows 10.. the disc is read and the disc number matches up and the disc is now proudly displayed by itself ..

But this past week... i have found numerous examples ( and some not) the program displays " Disc ID not found' Add title?    "

and sure enough the disc ID is a few numbers and letters off .. So of course I add the  new ID  and I'm not going to submit this as I'm sure its the fault of my PC ( updates?)  ,, or the program I use which is Powerdvd17 by cyberlink .

I'm I alone on this?  has this happen to others?  I sent a support ticket off to Cyberlink  but they don't understand this problem  and think I can no longer play the DVD ..

I can play no problem.. but I kinda enjoy the advent of Invleos Profiler finding and identifying my disc to my data ..

This has never been a problem in over 15 years years and my powerdvd has been always updated over the years to my present edition of 17 ..

Do you use Disc ID to find any  disc in question by inserting into dvdrom..?

about 7 years ago  I had two HDDVD Warner Bros discs  of 'Phantom of the Opera' (2004) .., and Mutiny on the Bounty (1960) both dics .. wouldn't playback a certain chapter.. I tested it on three HDDvd  (Toshiba) machines and all playbacks  was the same results..   

But I managed to get a hold of the Head office for Warner Bros .,  whv@wb.com and outlined my situation  and got an email back saying to send them my home address to  person@warnerbros.com  (sic) ., and they sent me a prepaid postage envelope and since this was now around 2012 .. no longer carried HDdvd  but was able to swap these  titles to BlueRay  titles ..  and I couldn't be happier .. 

Not the same though for Elite Entertainment .. My copy or DVD of Lady In White (1988) also wouldn't load up and play  and I could not get any response/ reply  from Elite Entertainment  as they have changed hands and no longer are in business ....

you can add titles using bar code

but to print out out your entire collection using barcode  would be best if you only had 1 title ...

that's good .. its what I thought  but was sure I  read in the contributions  forums here long ago the cover art takes precedence ..
therefore ..
all good  .. My bad ..

I noticed today we have (out of a dozen or so contribution in data) the  1937 'A Star is Born'  there are two listed as 1934 .. then I see that the rear packaging is incorrectly  listed as 1934 .. 
I'm sure there is a discussion on this somewhere ., ' where "what is on the  cover takes precedence than what is on the actual film / screen images ..' .

seriously? 
thought we/us  at Invelos wanted to be better than IMDB  and not make any mistakes what
so-ever .. and besides that..,,  it draws a lot of confusion between any of us who actually know and those of us who don't have a clue.. as the people were.. who put that inferior artwork  together ....

So by putting in the correct year on both of these titles .. I'm sure to get a rejection -that will then be approved by the staff to be.. who is in charge of keeping the Data correct ...
 
Film should always take precedence over a cheap cardboard knockoff , put out by a licenced manufacturer who can take out of date public domain title  and put together their own overview  and that's all it is ..  an Overview of the facts that one staffer can't read ....

one idea-  may be on top of the tagged titles for each category,  is for either for AFI titles is to use their ranking  ( i.e.) #1  is (drama) Citizen Kane  or  (comedy) Some like it Hot etc etc ..  you could edit the listed title under 'sort Title putting a 1, or 2 , 3 etc will put those tagged titles in the order you perfer ...

Why ?/  probably for a few reasons .. Streaming is #1  .. Nothing exciting  or overly wanting for #2,

and I guess most new releases of dvd's BD or boring..    would round this out .. 

Only mainly interested in added classics and updated restorations to my own library and I usually add these during the year as they come out ..

For streaming titles such as ..  (what ever).. I would add the title to my data base just so I can add adate of watched to said title .. and if need be add it to my wish list under the 5 orders of wish.

I have always had Video VHS  Movies  or Laser Disc  or DVD  and then Blue Ray under the tree ever year for almost 40 years ...  ( I refuse at this point at my age to  add/ upgrade titles to  4K )

which then leads to know that this or  My  phenomenon is not unique ...

thoughts ?

anyway..  Merry Christmas to all..

I realize after a number of years now being a member of Invelos  ( myself 16 years)  there are members that seem to 'drop off the boards'  maybe due to sickness , health , or a complete removal of their DVD hobby..

I know that members such as Winston,, or Skipnet50, have had major health issues and are no longer with us , 

but figured out today I have not seen M.Cellophane  and even possibly others ..

It would be nice if anyone within  the forum group here  knows of others who have/ Had  health issues to drop a line or two in Discussions  so we could send notes to family ..

This is precisely why I hate to include slip covers ..
You know you submit a cober and it gets rejected because the slip cover wasbn't used . .Who cares!

The slip covers in my opinion as an after thought and sales promotion to not only protect the jacket underneath  and with the cut out for the UPC is why they can slip any jacket they want -on almost any same title edition  ...

Its all about sales , and the marketing dept. have no thought,,  &  no consideration for Invelos ... ..
( who? ) ......

Ive been complaining about this issue for well over 15 years  and have given up on it ..

'The Out of Stream  ( or is it Steam? )  is the error I get when I'm trying to reload from a backup ,  my .dbp  is on another drive ..  frustrating and it doesn't matter if it is windows XP  or 7  or 8  or today  10.

One work around I have found over the years  is to completely remove all traces of profiler from your My Documents folder .. ( after you your have made a successful backup to another drive or thumb drive ..)

then reinstall a fresh copy of Profiler---  then - with no titles in this base reload your .dbp form another drive  and don't touch any keys  while this is installing  ..

there are some examples  such as  The Day After ( to name one)  a 1983 made for TV  movie ..

it did not play in the cinema theaters in North America...,,

But  it did play in the Theaters  in Europe..

Therefore  the locality of said title should be TV as genre  for Region 1

Quoting Eagle:

I just looked on Amazon and I saw 2 different listings for the Director's Cut BD. The standard case was about $13 and the digibook was about $62. Both listings clearly show their respective cases. My guess is that if you got it for $9.99, then it's most likely the standard case version


Thanks Eagle I already I have  in my notes the standard case ( thin blue keepcase , not the digibook .. my concern is what is in that standard case as there is no data o nthis after all these months / years ..
anyway when it arrives I'll update ..

and thanks CubbyUps hopefully the disc is the same materials as the digibooks contents ..

If repair does not solve the problem-  Back up your data-- both to the invelos cloud site and as well backup the titles to a separate area on PC ( not my documents) to  Hard drive ( .dpb is the extension  )

that way when you restore you'll get back any special cover art you may have attached to your dvd's .. The cloud will keep all titles as they are from the upc code) ..
then Remove all evidence and programs of Profiler off your PC  and then reboot , reinstall the software new with your own Id and password .. this will get the program back to square one  ..

then you just reinstall the backups ( first to install is the saved .dpb )  if that fails  use the cloud first then the PC files second ..

So I used to have a 2013 (2014)  version of the 1986 Little Shop of Horrors on Blue Ray. .( it was a ''used downloaded '  copy passed down to me).. But today I have ordered ( thru Amazon )  the Blue ray of the same title is Diirectors ED. that is listed in the Invelos data as 2017  and it is ONLY listed ( region 1) as a digibook  ( along  with special souvenir  book of  photos etc .. and both versions of the movie theatrical and directors edition ( happy / dark) . 
I'm trying to figure what version I bought thru amazon as they do not list upc.. and the Invelos data isn't  helping me out.. as it may not be contributed properly ..

Question:  for $9.99  would I have a digi-book Ed.  or the single  blue plastic case version ?  any one know for sure .. If it is the single blue case edition does it contain both movies or just the longer one only?  as some of the reviews I read on line ( amazon)  for this title say it does not contain the theatrical ed. and others say it does ...  frustrating to the point I have come to the forum for help . 

Thanks !
