I’m getting the encryption error with movies that I’ve imported from a VCR -> Handycam -> iMovie -> QuickTime -> DVD Studio Pro. These movie’s have never been encrypted. So far I’m three for three. I thought I’d get better quality by encoding the movies to around 6 GB and then use DVD2one to compress them to 4.3 GB. It’s turning out to be a pain. They ALL get the error at 99/100%, basically, the movie gets compressed but the IFO files don’t get created… Sound familiar?
For the first movie I was using DVD2one 1.02, the other two have been 1.1.1. And yes, I have the NEW 1.1.1. I even installed Norton SystemWorks 2002 and checked my Windows system for viruses, none found. Then I spent the next 30 minutes trying to get rid of all the automatic crap that Norton installs I was able to get the first movie working with IfoEdit, the second one didn’t like IfoEdit. So I found DVD Toolbox 0.10.2b at Doom9. I was able to get the second movie working by placing the original IFO files in the destination folder and having Toolbox ‘Strip & Split’. Toolbox updates the IFO files after Stripping and that fixed the second movie. For the third, I had Toolbox Strip the original and then ran DVD2one again. NO ERRORS this time! Interesting, to say the least. Now let’s see about movie number 4. Are we having fun yet?
