[QUOTE=signals;2135550]cybmole and Glenn
In my experience, there are very few movies that cannot be backed up with some combination of DVDFab’s many controls and features. In cybmole’s example of the photo or slideshow feature, this can usually be made to work by leaving the menus intact and/or setting PathPlayer to scan more deeply into the content. Some DVDs do have unusual authoring that will not copy correctly with some modes or with default settings, but as Glenn noted, most titles that really can’t be copied for some reason are usually fixed in the next update. I would be interested in a list like this too, but I think it would be a short one.[/QUOTE]
actually , in my case, I tried what you said, those with slide shows would hang usually at 99 copied, with pathplayer disabled, & would scan forever with it enabled. I don’t think DVDfAb can handle a cluster zero length chapters which only contain one still frame each. Probably clone would have worked but I did not want to backup those bits anyway so no big deal!
Oh & there’s the “clearplay doesn’t work on some backups issue”, which never did get solved. God only know how that works - & he ain’t posting here
shame about clearplay , I think an anti-clearplay, which let you get straight to the sex & violence & skip all the other stuff, whould have been wildly popular
I also agree that it would ba short list, & whenever I’ve hit a problem with something old, It would usually rip in DVDshrink, which seems more tolerant of bad authoring.
I have one other DVDset that fab does not like - that’s the "what the bleep do we know…down the rabbit hole " box set.
the original has a "play chapters at random feature " which does not work on backups. I never did figure how the DVD instructs the player to make a random selection.
