The AnyDVD "Ripper" will only 'rip' a FULL image , decrypted of course ,
of the source disc on to your hard-drive .
You will then need to select this 'movie' folder as your "SOURCE"
for ( Your Program ) to compress .
If there is something wrong with the DVD ,
scratched , damaged or loaded with improper VOBs ,
The "RIPPER" may be able repair the DVD on it's way to the hard-drive .
If the DVD is in need of 're structuring' ( invalid VOBs ; "unreferenced material" )
the "RIPPER" is also able to to do this .
( "Half Light" , "Bambi II" , "Flight Plan" , "Walk the Line" , "The Ice Harvest" , etc. )
These are the reasons I have found to use the "RIPPER" most useful .
( to remove/restructure : "unreferenced material" , "blank cells" , "error zones" , "invalid VOBUs" )
If you receive a "Read Error" message ,while using the "RIPPER"
Select "Continue , Ignoring Further Read Errors"
The "RIPPER" will continue 'fixing' the movie .
But no promises , If the disc can not be "Read" by the AnyDVD "Ripper" ,
I would acquire a different source disc .
To use the "Ripper"
Allow AnyDVD to recognize the disc
Close your "DVD Player" , Close the AnyDVD"Show Information" window
Right click on 'FOX" icon in your 'sys tray'
select 'Rip Video-DVD to Harddisk...'
Navigate and Select your "source drive/burner" as "SOURCE"
Create a HD Folder and select it as "DESTINATION"
Select "COPY DVD"
The AnyDVD ripper may be able to repair the DVD
as it's being ripped to your Hard-Drive .
When finished 'ripping'
Select the HD Folder created above as your "Source"
Your burner as "Destination"
( program used ) will compress from this folder and then burn to disc .
Hard-Drive 'free' space may become an issue
while adding this extra 'ripper' step .
If you have at least 13gb+/- free , you'll be fine .
( 8.5 + 4.3 = 12.8 )
A good disc takes about 10-15 mins ,
It depends on the extent of read errors , if any .
If it has to keep 're trying' , somewhat longer .
They gave it to us for a reason .
In my own personal experience - It definitely works .
Before you ask , I'll answer your next question ;
The "Option to Remove unreferenced and blank cells"
in the AnyDVD ripper :
"To Remove ?" or "Not Remove?" ......that is the question .

- New: Added "AnyDVD Ripper". This little tool repairs defective DVDs
while copying them to your harddisk. It can be started from the menu of
the AnyDVD fox icon. It can be started as a stand alone application from
the start menu as well, so it can be used even if AnyDVD is not registered
and the trial period has expired.
It is identical to FixVTS but instead
of fixing problems "in place" it copies the files to your harddisk directly
from the source DVD. It fixes the problems while the files are copied.
Some DVDs which have severe mastering defects e.g.,
"Menace II Society" R1 (US) can now be copied with all DVD copy tools
(elby CloneDVD, DVDShrink, etc.) Many thanks to the author of FixVTS ![/color]

- Change: The option to remove unreferenced and blank cells in the
AnyDVD ripper is now disabled by default[/color]
I usually use the AnyDVD"RIPPER" with this setting ENabled .
I have not run into the case where the actual 'removal' of these blank/unreferenced cells
has caused an adverse effect in the "RE authoring" of a DVD .
I believe SlySoft set it - Disabled as default ;
To prevent the accidental use of this feature -
resulting in the undesired deletion of necessary components
sometimes 'hidden' within these "blank/unreferenced cells"
Similar to the result as described here :

- Fix: Bug introduced in 22.214.171.124, on some DVDs title sets could
be accidentally deleted (AnyDVD mistook them as decoys from the newest
SONY ArccoS protections)[/color]
Hope that answers the question .
