Ok I tried to clean it a couple of times & once it stopped at 23% instead of the usual 60 & the last time stopped at 60% again.

Is there another program I could try that should be able to rip it? I'd hate to be short 1 dvd to the set & be it my favorite one.

Try this out it's a free trial, I've been using it for about 9 months.

Download Magic DVD Ripper and Magic DVD Copier

You can do the exact same thing with free tools.

Well since I had Daemon tools I tried it, downloaded Astroburn lite & for some reason cant figure out how to burn something. There arent many options & I've tried them all, but its just not working.

I hope the other program is easier to figure out.

For what you want:

1) Get DVD Decryptor and rip the disc

2) Load up the files in DVD Shrink.

3) 4.7GB film for you

I would still consider a program such as Auto Gordian Knot to convert the files in step 2 to xvid/ac3 and to choose a file size of 2099MB - this will maximise quality for every new film, even 3hr ones. For black and white, you will adjust this to something lower.

Ok you wanted me to burn to .iso with DVD Decrypt & then open it as an .iso in Shrink?

Hmm no luck with this program either, I get an error message half way through it or so.

Damn it that sucks. Theres always got to be one rotten apple.

I guess I'm SOL for this one?

Well Decrypt worked also, but I was running into the same corruption issues again I think.

I'll dry what you suggest & see if it can do anything.

Be back soon.

Which would be better, ripper or copier if I'm having issues with other programs?
