The disc needs to be one that K has bookmarked, you cannot do it on your own, and being unrecognized is an indication it is not bookmarked.

Bookmarking is the best but you could create a scene as a work around for the DVD so you set the scene start as the film starts and end the scene at the end on the credits. Not elegant but it will give you the option then to Play Disk or Play Scene so that way you can 'avoid' all the lead in material. A solution I used on some of my foreign language TV material that will never likely be in the store and it avoids the bookmarking fee etc.

If the disc has been imported into a Premiere system, then I believe a new scene can be created that starts at the beginning of the movie and ends at the end. You should then be presented with an option to "play scene" that will start without the various intros and options that normally show up with "play disc." I believe this works on discs that have not been bookmarked by K., but it has been a while since I have tried. It can be a time consuming project depending on how many discs there are to do. You can skip through chapters but be careful not to overshoot the ending you want.

Hope this is of some help.

Just noticed Mark beat me to it!😊

There are some national cinematography movies bought from stories or from some newspapers collection. It looks like some of them are recognised by K, I have in mind to hunt all the titles I need produced by the companies that create the discs recognised by K.
Or just make the scenes as the colleagues mentioned above.

Thanks

Note that with unrecognized DVDs, the scene trick works well. With Blu-ray discs, it's more complicated, because many Blu-ray discs use a Java virtual machine as part of their core functionality, including disc navigation. On discs of that type, it's not possible to create a user scene unless Kaleidescape has bookmarked it first. We have special tools that allow us to create bookmarks on these Java-based discs.
