Hi - I am trying to back up Alien vs Predator but before someone says “Read the Forums” … I have, endlessly, doing everything anyone has ever said about “oh this worked for me” etc. etc.
I am in the U.K. and have tried DVD Decrypter 3.5.20, Vobblanker 1.6.05, DVD Shrink3.2 AnyDVD 188.8.131.52 …
None of them work either alone or together … I’ve probably burnt my dvd-rw drive to a crisp trying to get it done
AnyDVD gave me this information re: the disc …
Summary for drive D:
Drive (Hardware) Region: 2
Media is a Data DVD.

Emulating RPC-2 drive with region 2!
I have tried to use vobblanker to just get the main movie vobs (all around 1gb each) & they are sat on my hard drive, but if I try to load them into DVD Shrink, it tells me that a couple of IFO files are missing which I put into the folder, but then when I tried to load the files into dvd shrink to shrink it, it told me that the main movie vobs were missing. Can’t load it straight into Nero because altogether is well over 5gb. DVD Decrypter stopped on vob#4 & went nuts and I’ve come to a brick wall.
I appreciate that most of the discssions in here are for region 1 discs, but if anyone has a region 2 AvP disc they have successfully backed up, please tell me how you did it using anything & everything I’ve got already or can get from somewhere!
Thank you (I hope)
