I just bought a copy of DISTRICT 9 (Region-1) and was able to make a back-up copy (Main Movie) using DVD FAB v.220.127.116.11 with Pathplayer ON.
There are a few titles on the disc- The correct Title is Title 1 (1hr.-52min-13sec).
I ripped Title-1 to my hard drive--Please note that during the ripping process you WILL get an error message at approx 5-10 seconds before the rip completes (roughly 99% complete). In the error message click "IGNORE ALL"...and leave it alone...it could take as much as 30minutes or more for DVD-FAB to complete the ripping process. But it works!
After ripping just burn a dvd disc in the regular way.
I ripped the dvd choosing "Main Movie" ; Selected English language; English sub-titles only. This eliminates compression as the total file is less than 4.2 gigs.
