Alternative for DVD43??

Is there an alternative for DVD43? I use to use it for XP. But I now have Windows 7 64 bit. I want to back up some dvd's (not to illegally rip, but because I have a 2 year old that can get a hold of them!) and I use DVDShrink. Thanks so much!

Easy.

1) Decrypt with DVD Decrypter

2) Watch with VLC

OR

1) After step 1

2) Install AutoGK

3) Encode the film down from 4.7GB to 2GB or so, maintaining superb quality.

4) Play on PC or media server.

Hello Welcome to SF,

I guess you could use DVD Decrypter. I use that it works well in Windows 7

Hope this helps,
Captain

DVD Decrypter is very good, but if you copy a 4.65GB DVD with it, it will remove encryption and expand to size of the files to much larger than the original. Using DVD Shrink will return it to the original size, which can save harddrive space, or prepare it to be burned to another DVD.

Actually, most commercial DVD's are dual layer...thus they have nearly 9GB of capacity. Thus, when DVD Fab Decrypter rips it's down...it's the same size as it was on the DVD.

People use DVD Shrink to fit what came from a dual layer disk onto a single layer disc...thus they shrink it down to 4.7GB.

I've always used
1) DVD Fab Decrypter to rip it down
2) Fix VTS to fix any disks that are scrambled up
3) DVD Shrink to shrink it down to fit on a re-writeable DVD
4) Handbrake to re-encode to fix on my phone or portable device.

Thank You Mate to making it more clear
I used to use Decrypter and the AutoGK and encode it to AVI

AutoGK is a good choice for 2GB .avi's with great quality as opposed to 4.7GB's DVD's - I've never had scrambling issues though.

It's primarily Disney based DVD's that exhibit this issue. You can rip the entire disk down with DVD Fab...but it shows about 40 different titles that it thinks are the main movie. Then DVD Shrink just chokes on it.

I've been buying all of the latest Disney movies in the BluRay format that has the DVD as well. We use the BR's in the house, and put the DVD's in the minivan for the kids....but as I have a 5 year old and a 2.5 year old handling them, they tend to get beat up. Thus, I usually RIP down a copy to place in the car so that i can leave the original in the package.

Did you select the right PGC in DVD Decrypter?
