View Full Version : Wrong file version!??

I'm ripping Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, following the instructions completely as provided by Doom9's Gordian Knot (divx3) guide. Obviously it being a foreign film I want subtitles with this release, and I ripped the ifo/idx/sub files according to the guide. However, when I try to play the finished movie, a "Wrong file version!" error message pops up, and while the movie plays fine, the language selection thing is greyed out so I can't see the subs. I don't know what could be wrong, because I have theFrail's release of Traffic, which includes subtitles as ifo/idx/sub files, and I can view them fine. Can anybody give me a heads upon what went wrong?

Many thanks,

Maybe you have an old version of VobSub package. I remember one old version, on which I had the same bug, as yours. Try to install new soft.

Hmm. I installed vobsub from the GordianKnot package though, so in theory it should work. I'll try installing a new version though. BTW...I won't have to rerip the whole movie right? Just the sub files? Thanks.

Yes, you don't have to rerip the movie. VobSub can decode vobs on the fly, so you can rip subs directly form the DVD.

Got the same problem here, ripped the subs from HANNIBAL with vobsub from the GKnot installer, they were to big so i deceided to rip em again with less languages...

...Installed 2.07 meanwhile....

I reripped the movie to my hd, want to open the files but I get the wrong version error twice....

And ripping right from the dvd doesn't work here (vobsub config hangs)

I would check your system just to make sure that it isn't loading a Old version of vobsub.dll when you try to play it.. Also the Wrong file version stuff is basically gabest has changed the file format a few times and when you get that means you ripped it with a higher version of vobsub that the one you are using currently don't support. Also with 2.07 you only load idx/sub files now.. no more need for the ifo files. So make sure you are loading the right idx files.. a couple times i have accidently loaded teh smartripper idx file instead of VobSub's and got that error.

Well I fixed it by reinstalling the 2.05 version that comes with gknot
