Help Burning with DVD Decrypter.

Hello everyone. I have riped my DVD to my hard-drive using DVD Decrypter and then shrunk it using DVD Shrink. I have been trying to burn the DVD using DVD Decrypter because I have read that it is better than Nero (which I use for data disc's) but when I click on the source button to direct DVD Decrypter to my file it shows nothing in the "VIDEO_TS" folder, however when I go to the folder using Windows Explorer the files are there. When I changed the "Files of Type:" option, from "All Supported Files" to "All Files (*.*)" a whole lot of files came up. I am assuming that I have done something wrong for these files to not show up in the "All Supported Files" option. I had "ISO Image File" selected as my "Backup Target" in DVD Shrink. I don't know what I did wrong. Thank you for any help.

Re: Help Burning with DVD Decrypter.

Its not making an ISO image even though you have "burn ISO with dvd decrypter selected" in shrink? Is that what you are doing?

You need to have "ISO Image File and backup with DVD Decrypter" selected. Also unless the movie has a brand new structure protection on it there is no need to rip with DVD Decrypter first. DVD Shrink will do it for you.

Re: Help Burning with DVD Decrypter.

I don't think DVD Decrypter can burn a disk in file mode. File mode is only for ripping, unless I'm mistaken. You're pointing to a "video_ts" folder - that's not an .iso file ... And Decrypter, I think, only burns DVD's if you have an .iso image. To burn with Decrypter, rip in "ISO Read" mode, not "File" mode.

To burn your video_ts files ... go ahead and use nero; or create an .iso out of them somehow.

EDIT:

Oh yeah. If you rip in file mode to use shrink, make sure you export (create the disk image) as an .iso file, like they said above, and not a video_ts folder ... if you want to burn it with decrypter. Presumably, shrink does that. I use Recode, and it doesn't ... that I know of, so I just burn with recode too. Works fine for me. I always rip with Decrypter first. I'll burn with decrypter if it's a DVD-5 (in which case I rip with "iso-read" and burn with "iso-write" ... as oposed to my normal file-mode rips for double-layer disks).

I actually had "ISO Image File" selected in DVD Shrink as my backup target instead of "ISO Image File and burn with DVD Decrypter". It shouldn't make a difference though because they should both create an image.

So are you saying that just because I didn't explicitly say that I wanted to burn with DVD Decrypter that it won't let me? Both options would create an image wouldn't they? Everyone seems to recommend DVD Decrypter to rip DVDs so that is why I used it.

I wasn't trying to burn in "File" mode, I only ripped the disk in "File" mode. The "VIDEO_TS" should be an image shouldn't it, because that is the directory that I selected as my "ISO Image File" my backup target in DVD Shrink.

The reason I don't want to use Nero to burn movies is because I heard that it is not as good as DVD Decrypter.

It shouldn't make a difference though should it because when I open the file with DVD Shrink I tell it to output the file as an image.

Re: Help Burning with DVD Decrypter.

If you want to get from a VIDEO_TS folder to a fully compliant .iso that DVD Decrypter will burn, just use imgtool classic. Free and the classic version is completely independent of other programs.

There is a lot of anecdotal evidence that suggests otherwise. It's certainly not conclusive, and I haven't seen anyone isolate the different I/O drivers they use as a variable, but you can't definitively conclude that there is no difference.

Would that further reduce the quality of the video?

Oh really? OK, well in that case I will go and get myself Imgtool Classic. Thanks to everyone for their help.

An image file is everything needed to create an autoplaying, standards compliant DVD-Rom. The "video_ts" folder is only one part of that. There's also the (usually empty) "Audio_ts" folder, and some other stuff that says how the disk is to be authored and read... I'm not really sure off the top of my head what that stuff is but I know it's there and you need it, too. I learned some about it when I was making a slipstream disk of SP2; you need the files, but you need other stuff too that says how they're to be read.

Works fine for me. Better even, because it was setting the booktype on my burns to DVD-rom automatically before I figured out to make Decrypter do that. Not to knock Decrypter, though. I know it's awesome, and I use it whenever it is convenient to do so.

It shouldn't make a difference though should it because when I open the file with DVD Shrink I tell it to output the file as an image.
I'm saying if the source disk contains less than 4,700,000,000 bytes, then rip in ISO-read mode, take the disk out, put a blank in, and use decrypter (in ISO write mode) to burn the resultant .iso file. Actually, decrypter creates two files ... the image file (.iso) and another little one (.mds) ... and I select the .mds file to burn the .iso. But that's just me.

If the file is bigger than what fits on a single-layer blank dvd; rip in "file mode". Then process the video in whichever program you have... Shrink, I guess. Make shrink create an .iso file and decrypter should burn it. Maybe it wants the ".mds" file too? Maybe that's why you need to specify burning with Decrypter. So it has that info too. I don't know, but if it works, than why wonder why it doesn't work not doing it that way?

Re: Help Burning with DVD Decrypter.

Use different ripping software.

DVD Decrypter is very outdated now and can't cope with modern protections.

Try DVDFab instead.
