I’ve backed up hundreds of other DVDs (including immediately before this one), so it isn’t a system or operator error.
NEC ND-3550A DMA
HP Pavilion 325c + 2GB RAM
I’ve ripped the source twice now, and each time, DVDFab fails to copy VTS_02_0.VOB (10KB). This error isn’t detected by PGCEdit8.6, FixVTS1.25, or DVDShrink220.127.116.11 - all process the files & even preview the full movie. But when Shrink attempts to burn (using native Nero), file reallocation fails due to the absence of VTS_02_0.VOB. Even using Nero18.104.22.168(Plextor) directly requires ignoring the error, and a fully playable DVD is produced, but the movie is missing at least one large segment.
I can drag&drop VTS_02_0.VOB from the original into the destination folder through Windows Explorer, but will that produce a good backup? VTS_02_1.VOB is 420KB in both the source & destination, so it appears the missing file contains little or no data, but the burn apparently won’t work without it.
Is installing 22.214.171.124 a fix?
I just re-opened it with PGCEdit after dropping in the missing file, and got the message:
“There are some VOB files in your DVD folder that are not referenced by the current IFOs: VTS_02_0.VOB You should remove them now. (Recommended)”
So it would seem that Fab isn’t the real source of the error - it’s the DVD’s structure. Is this a new form of DRM?
