In response to: How to Identify Counterfeit Bootleg DVD Box Sets Being Sold on eBay and Amazon

Comment from: Locke [Visitor]  

Came here after getting some bootleg Curb Your Enthusiasm DVDs. The way I found out they were fake, because to me they looked real, was that I rip all my DVDs and Blurays to hard drives for easy access. When I inserted the first DVD MakeMKV gave me a warning that it might not rip right and to instead rip from original DVDs.

It’s crazy to think that counterfeiters can get discs produced professionally yet the MOD companies just use DVD-Rs or Blu-ray-Rs…

Thanks for the very useful article.

Comment from: T.L. [Visitor]

Our kids were born there as well and we recently noticed it while watching an old episode of The Sopranos, season 2. We didn’t catch it on our initial viewing of the show, but having visited the hospital and nearby doctors offices multiple times since, it is was hard to miss.

Is there a simple way to check the disc specs on a Macbook?
I’ve tried DragonBurn, Burn, VLC and can’t find a way to see the specs to check.

Much simpler way that takes 1 minute to check . Been using it for 20 years . Friend who works for Sony told me . Look on the shiny side of the disc near the hole . There will be random holographic numbers and letters going around on the authentic sets .If you see the name of the series and season spelled out then it is a bootleg . Look at every set you ever bought at Walmart and you will never see that .Also when buying on Amazon scroll down and look for SOLD BY AMAZON and you will not get a bootleg .

Thank you so much for this blog and the recommendation of NERO INFO TOOL. I just used it on 2 DVD sets that I purchased from Ebay and was on the fence about being a counterfeit, but NERO showed that both sets were fake. I will now check all my other recently purchased DVD sets to double check.

Just popped up in an episode of Supernatural. Season 6 episode 11. I first saw the footage in the movie The Dirt, it’s a fun little game trying to find it in other places now. I have walked past that fountain countless times over the last three years.

In response to: 'Til Death: The Complete Series (Mill Creek) DVD Set Review

Comment from: Paul Rudoff [Member]

Stuart

Please don’t post comments that have nothing to do with the review you’re posting the comment to. If you want me to review the Drive-In Delirium: The Final Conflict Blu-ray so badly, buy me a copy and I’ll happily review it. Otherwise, I’ll buy it when the price goes down and the availability goes up. Remember, it’s not something that is normally released here in the United States. I can’t just go over to Target and Walmart and pick it up, now can I?

There are some discs that are not counterfeit from overseas such as China that have a license to make so many copies of said dvd such as say 10,000 copies, but one can find them at a cheaper price point because they actually end up manufacturing more that they are licensed to, such as 20,000 copies and then they can sell them cheaper.

So, there are four possibilities, legitimate, bootleg, counterfeit, or over manufactured units.

Thanks for letting me know, Stuart.

I’ll be sure to pick up “Drive-In Delirium: The Final Conflict” (Vol. 6) as soon as I can and hopefully have it reviewed on the site within the next few months.

I just did a quick announcement for it on the Spook Central Facebook page because the trailer that Umbrella Entertainment posted for it shows that it includes Ghostbusters!!!

I have a feeling that this is going to be the best of the releases. At least they’re going out on top.

Hi Stuart

Mr. King’s review over at Amazon doesn’t make the “The AGFA Horror Trailer Show” Blu-ray sound all that interesting. I’ll pass.

Thank you so much for this nice post. It’s a big help.

I’ve been buying physical media again and ran into two sets that are counterfeit: Three Stooges Ultimate Collection and Garfield and Friends Vol. 1-5 from 20th Century Fox, both on eBay. I got suspicious after makemkv gave me errors: DvdFab / Mac the Ripper.

If anyone is looking to buy these sets, Garfield is out of print and Stooges Ultimate is hard to find lately from retailers, be careful. I verified both with Nero Tool: found them to be single layer discs with no copyright protection.

I have a likely legit copy coming of Garfield volume 1 to compare the outside. I think the real copies are in black slim cases while the fake ones are clear, but maybe I’m wrong. Stooges I just bought so I am going to contact the buyer. Garfield was too long ago.

The whole thing is very frustrating. There are sellers that know these are fake and specialize in new DVDs online. But what about normal people that buy these and have no idea then sell them down the road? That is scary.
