Having trouble with Transformers backup

Hello all…

I am new to this whole thing, but in the last few days have successfully made 20 or so backups to dvd’s. When attempting to use dvdshrink on transformers, after 13% encoding I get an error message that says “Failed to read file “E:\” Incorrect function.

After reading the forums, it seems like my nest step would be to just use dvd decrypter to put the whole thing on my hard drive. Whenever I try to do this, I get 13% complete and then get this error message “I/O Error!

I can’t think of anything else to try. I have cleaned the disc…and it does not seem to have any scratches on it. Anyone have any ideas of what else I could do or what may be the problem???

Thanks a bunch

The programs cannot deal with the newer copy protections because they are no longer updated.

Suggested method for you

Use DVDFab HD Decrypter 3.2.1.0 : http://www.dvdfab.com/free.htm

Save you output to the HD as an Iso, use DvDShrink if you need to edit the image and then save the output as an Iso.

Use Imgburn to burn the image. : http://www.imgburn.com/

:cool: :cool:

It is the copy protection-Use dvd fab decrypter-Then run the files thru Shrink.
Here’s the link.
http://www.dvdfab.com/free.htm
Platiumsword you were faster than me :slight_smile: One thing though if his fab output is ISO then he needs to mount it on a virtual drive or shrink will not open it. If he saves it as files then shrink will see it.

Wow…thanks for the tagteam of support guys!

um…i dl’ed dvdfab…and began using that…but it gets an error
"reading error (may be caused by copy protection) which can be removed by using pathplayer…" It then asks me if i wouuld like to restard DvDFab to enable PathPlayer for the DVd…i say yes and then a feedback box pops up and says something about helping Dvdfab become a better product and to fill in info about the dvd…if i cancel out of that a blue box pops up and starts to load something… it says open dvd source: E:[Transformers_Vainilla]…
this goes for like a minute and then the whole thing repeats again witht eh reading error…

i have no idea what is going on…

does anyone else???

thanks…

Check if the disc is dirty or scratched. For what I know there is no a strong protection on that movie, and DVD Decrypter should be able to rip it flawlessly :slight_smile:

Have you tried to rip the disc with a different drive?

hmmm… well the disc does have a few small scratches on it…but nothing compared to some fo the others i have already done…

i only have one drive on this comp. :o :rolleyes:

Dvdfab stops at 13% too…just like shrink and decrypter

here is the log

15:14:10: Analyzing of DVD started
15:14:10: Analyzing of DVD completed successfully
15:14:10: Copy process started

That is pathplayer analyzing the disc just let it run for awhile(5-10)minutes. Or click the little gear at the top right and under read change auto to spti uncheck read ahead cache. In pathplayer disable pathplayer. Try the later first. I do not own The Transformers but in the fab forum have not seen this title as a problem.
Edit: try cleaning it as suggested or since it is new take it back and get a new one tell them it does not play correctly.

If all softwares stops at the same point, I think that the disc is damaged. Try to rip it with a different drive.

ya…maybe it is damaged…its weird that it plays fine in stand alone and on my computers dvd player… oh well… thanks for the help…if anyone can think of anything else let me kno…

oh…and tgidday…i tried the gear thing too…didnt work either :frowning:

As far as I know, Transformers doesn’t have copy protections (that DVD Shrink can’t handle). I was able to rip it using DVD Shrink.

Try wiping the disk with a clean cloth/tissue with a little 70% alcohol. That often clears up read errors for me.

Also try another DVD reader if you have more than one.

worked fine with anydvd and clonedvd

o well…i have moved past Transformers…I’m just gunna chalk it up to the DVD being to scratchy…Thanks to everyone tho…and i will prob be back for help sometime down the road when i hit a new roadblock…

Actually…i just thought of a question i have… All of the DVD’s i have burned work on my computer and on all of my friends diff. DVD stand alone players… the weird thing is that only about half of them work on my Sony stand alone… does that make sense to you guys? I use the same process evertime, but half of them dont work on my Sony. At first i thought they were bad burns, but they work on every other dvd player i have tried…

What kinda media are you using and is it -R or +R? For +R you should booktype +R media to -ROM setting for compatibilty in standalone. Also what speed is your burn at? What software are you using to do the burns?

i use +R verbatim…i’ve been buring at 1X…i use dvddecrypter to burn… i read about changing the booktype to -ROM… but i couldnt figure it out…i go to tools>drive>change booktype…then it lists a a handful of different drives…i dont know which one i have…but i tried all of them…i only found ROM option under one…and when i selected it…it would not work

so im not sure, but i don’t think i’m doing that right…

i dont kno if anyone is still lookin at this thread but…

I was just wondering if there is any way to burn a dvd that is too scratched up for shrink and decrypter to handle…like some sort of software that lets u skip over the tiny section of the movie that is too deeply scratched???

The only way is try to rip the disc with a different drive. Some drives are able to rip better than other.

If you don’t have another drive, maybe you can ask to a friend.

I would recommend to try IsoPuzzle. It will take all the info from a disc and mark the bad sectors’ addresses in a type of info file. Then you take the info file (.flg file) on a flash drive plus the dodgy disc to another computer with a different DVD drive and it will try to read the missing sectors only - updating the bad sector list as it goes. You can move between computers taking advantage of the different reading abilities and make up the whole image. Takes a bit of effort but it works.

I saved a VERY badly-scratched DVD using this application using several computers’ DVD writers and readers.

oh ok…thats interesting…maybe ill give it a try if i end up with enough free time on my hands…

Thanks a bunch

I have tried all the above and cannot get a backup of my Transformers DVD. My pathfinder is enabled in DVDFab Plat 3.2.1.0, etc… I tried ANYDVD and Clone DVD 2 and still I have about 10 coasters on this and
my other movie 28 weeks. Is there a particular version of AnyDVD and Clone, and DVDFab?

Oh, and by the way, I always use Verbatim DVD-R’s because they are good media and work in almost everything I put them in. In fact, this is the first time I have had a problem with this.
