I can not figure out how to back-up The Birds. Linked HERE is the exact one that I have. I usually have no problems with AnyDVD/CloneDVD2, however this time I am. I have a log file, but it’s relatively large (383KB). Is there a specific part of the file I should post, or should I split the whole file and post as separate txt attachments? I’ve tried doing it the old way of ripping to the HDD with AnyDVD, no luck. Using CloneDVD2 it gets about 39% complete. I’ve tried using DVD Decrypter, similar scenario. With that it rips most of the VOBs, but GREATLY slows down on the others…usually to the point where it is retrying errors. The disc is fine, at least no damage is visible. I also have Psycho from this same series and it doesn’t seem to yield the same scenario, which is why I’m stumped.
Also, I tried the trial of DVDFab…can’t even get the DVD to be completely recognized beyond the initial loading of the movie. Typical message regarding cleaning/scratches pops up…same with DVDShrink.
I’ve tried everything I can think of. I don’t really understand VOB Blanker, and the one tutorial I read on that a while back still confused me.
