So whats everyones prefered combo. ?

Anydvd with Clonedvd
or
dvd decryptor with dvd shrink


#2

I use Anydvd with Clonedvd mostly although i also use dvd decryptor and dvdshrink as well…


#3

Cant beat the price and quality of shink and decrypter


#4


#5

You forgot my favorite option, Decrypter and CloneDVD.


#6

Decrypter and DVD Rebuilder (with CCE) :iagree:
I only use DVD-Shrink if the movie needs less than 10% compression, otherwise it gets too ‘blocky’.


#7

DVD Decrypter + DVD Rebuilder + QuEnc

Likewise I only use Shrink if a very small amount of compression is required.


#8

DVD Decrypter + NERO Recode2 for compression. DVD Decrypt + DVD Fab (free) or Intervideo DVDCopy3 to split to 2 discs.


#9

DVD decryptor then Dvd2One … never had a coaster or any play back problems yet …

Only thing is since i got a 3520A i cant use Sonic RecordNow Dx 4.6, ive
got to burn everything through nero. which im not so keen on …


#10

AnyDVD and CloneDVd2.

Reason:

  1. Quick.
  2. Easy.
  3. Reliable.

Hi, I’m having trouble with dvd shrink…how do I burn through dvd decrypter without having to use dvd shrink to put it on a disc?


#12

Run DVD Decrypter Mode => ISO => Read then pick a Destination folder and run the program. Having your DVD in your Source drive.
Run DVD Decrypter Mode => ISO => Write then select your file. Have a blank DVD 9 in your burner and burn.
Just make sure its not a ritek DVD 9 to increase your odds of a good burn.
Good luck.


#13

Some times both combinations!


#14

I dont know what a dvd 9 is


#15

It’s a double layer disc 8.5gb :wink:

I gave up on DVD Shrink a while back and DVD Decrypter just doesn’t cut it for me anymore. With the protection on a lot of the new movies available, these two are obselete.

I thought DVD Decrypter would be up to the task but it inserts “Dummy Sectors” and some of the movies do not begin until 5,6,7,8 minutes into the disc when re-authored with DVD Shrink.

My choice is AnyDVD/CloneDVD2, it always come through when DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter fails, just as it did with two of the three movies I backed up last night.

Anydvd & Clonedvd for me, not had any problems yet & if there is a problem the guys at slysoft/elby will have a fix for it soon.

I want to convert to 3* dvd5 (with wasted space I know) a dvd9 dvd with 3 episodes on it - keeping the full menu but on each disc either the other episode buttons doing nothing or saying insert disc x - I do not want to recode, so keeping the original quality.

I would not mind splitting this dvd9 3 episode vob set currently on HD to 2 * dvd5 with the middle episode (no:2) being half on 1 and half on disc 2 i.e Disk 1 has full menu with full episode 1 and half of episode 2, with disk 2 having full menu with the 2nd half of episode 2 and all of episode 3. There are currently no extra’s on this first disc.

I have tried various programmes but none seem to work as required. I can get DVDFabGold to work giving 3 seperate dvd5 uncompressed copies but no menu - if I let it do a dvd9 to 2*dvd5 with menu, strangely it places ep1 and the first half of ep3 on disk 1 (!!!), and ep2 complete with the 2nd half of ep3 on disk2 - madness.

vobblanker - what can I say, cannot understand it - dvdrebuilder let me blank out sections, produced a vob set roughly 2.x GB’s in size, but when played showed a black screen for several seconds and then stopped.

Can anyone say what I can use that works as required?

Thanks.

Idealy DVD Decrypter+DVDRebuilder+CCE. However of the 1-clickers, DVDShrink (with Advanced Analysis) is better, and free, and unless it is using the new Sony protection or is a very scratched DVD there is no need to rip with DVD Decrypter first.

I have just got into DVD Rebuilder and the quality is pretty good. I’m not very picky given that I have a 25" tv so everything looks okay to me. I use DVD Decrypter (haven’t run into any DVD that has given me problems yet) with DVD Rebuilder + HC encoder.
