HELP! DVD Fab Decrypter to DVD Shrink (using Nero) no longer working

Hey all,

I perused the theads, and there seems to be a ton of info here, with very knowledgable people. However, I am perplexed with my situation, and perhaps someone can help me.

I have been backing up my retail DVD’s for when I travel, to avoid scratching the original and rendering my investment useless. I’ve had no problems using DVD Fab Decrypter to rip, and then DVD Shrink to compress and burn (with Nero 6.2.0.15) for a couple of years, but suddenly, I can’t make a backup that my JVC DVD player will recognize. I’ve checked my DVD player, and it plays older discs I’ve burned, as well as the original retail versions.

I even reformatted my computer, reinstalled all drivers and I’m still having problems. I have a HP Pavillion a808x with AMD 3200+ processor, 1 GB ram, and two optical drives, a Lite-On DVDRW WH-20A1H and a Lite-On DVDRW SOHW-1693S.

I’m not sure if I have bad backups, and have a software issue between Nero, DVD Shrink, and DVDFab Decrypter, or if I have a hardware problem. I even slowed my burn speed down to 12x (always could do 16x with no problems) and I still make coaters.

Here is the last failure log I copied:

I appreciate anyone that has time to possibly help me out with this, as I’m about ready to throw my machine out the window. Any suggestions are welcome, and I thank you in advance for any help!

Are you able to watch ripped backup on PC? what media? slow down burn to 8x, preferably 6x IMO…try IMGBurn instead of Nero…

yeah you will want to try different blank dvd’s.

But if you look in the error log, he is using MCC004. Some of the best blank dvds around.

Which would suggest hardware problems, except he has two dvd writers with dma enabled on both. You’ve tried writing in both I assume?

Which movie are you trying to copy? And are you using the latest version of DVDFab Decrypter?

Here are some answers to the questions you all asked.

  1. Yes, I can watch a ripped DVD on my comnputer, without any problems whatsoever.

  2. I had never had a problem burning at 16x, so I tried 12x, and that’s what gave me the error I posted.

  3. I have never used IMGBurn. I’ll take a look.

  4. I thought Verbatim DVD+R 16x were quality blanks. I had read in other formus that most everything out of Taiwan is lower quality, except for Verbatim. I’ve never had problems with any Verbatim discs before, until now. I have a friend who had me try some Imations, which I never felt were very good quality, and I had the same problems.

  5. I have tried burning in both. The movies that I’ve had the most trouble with that I’ve wanted a backup of were titles like The Departed, Pan’s Labrynth, Flags of Our Fathers, etc.

  6. I just downloaded the newest upgrade of DVDFab Decrypter today. I believe the last update is dated 5/30/07.

Thanks again for all your help. I’m really perplexed with this situation. Any other ideas or questions, I’ll be glad to update this thread.

What does a MID mean these days?

Nothing.

What brand is the media?
edit, okay Verbs

Clean the drive & update Nero to 6.6.1.x.

Chef wrote " What does a MID mean these days?

Nothing. :iagree:
IMO, use IMGBurn and slow down burn…
Also try DVDFab Platinum, 1-click solution, see if that helps… if successful with same media then maybe it is “yikes” Nero…

Thanks to all the suggestions. I’ll take a look at the options presented, but I’m still really wondering what the story is on why things aren’t working all of a sudden. If I have hardware issues, what kind of issues may they be?

I feel like simply saying to slow my burning down is like telling me if I have trouble with a car shifting, just drive in second gear. It’s a solution, but it doesn’t really get down to nitty gritty of what the problem may be.

I don’t intend to offend anyone who has offered suggestions, but I really want to understand what other problems I may have and when backing up my original movies has worked so well using the version of Nero I’ve had for the past 2+ years, why wouldn’t it work now? The hardware and software is all the same, except for the upgrades on DVDFab Decrypter, used exclusively for ripping.

Thanks in advance for any other ideas!

There is a rather large discussion over on the afterdawn forums about problems with DVDShrink and the newer versions of Nero 6. They recommend using Nero 6.6.0.18 or older if you want to automatically burn your dvds from Shrink while using Nero as the burning engine. This doesn’t help you though, since you are using 6.6.0.15

I’m a little perplexed myself. It is possible that you got one of the poor batches of Verbatim 16x media. There is a large thread about them in the Blank Media forum here at cdfreaks. I didn’t know that any of them were bad enough to cause a complete write failure. Just poor scans. Verbatim is still one of the most recommended types of disks around here.

If you want to try different media, look at Taiyo Yuden 8x +R disks available online or maybe the HP brand +R 16x disks that have been getting good reviews by users around here.

16x burning can be a little problematic. Some people do it, but most around here slow their burn speed down to 12x or 8x. You don’t really gain much by burning at top speed.

Does ImgBurn work or have you tried it yet? There is a variation of DVDShrink that can use ImgBurn as the automatic burning program if that is what you like to do. Finding a link for it may be a problem since Digital Digest got stomped on by the Australian version of the MPAA mafiosos. Send me a pm if you can’t find it by Googling.

If slowing down the burn solves your particular problem,maybe that’s the solution…just maybe!.. try all the suggestions given as well as others coming,and you’ll eventually get to the nitty gritty, good luck!! :wink:

Ok, here’s some more info.

I did try IMGBurn and successfully burned a copy of a newly ripped movie (Office Space). However, when I made an ISO image of “Deja Vu” which I had ripped earlier and stored on my HD, I also got a disc that would not be recognized by my DVD player.

I plan to re-rip some of the movies I wanted to back up, and see if IMGBurn works for them, and if so, my problem probably revolves around Nero becoming corrupted or something like that. I have dug up my original backup disc of Nero and will attempt to reinstall if I find IMGBurn will make a successful copy.

Again, thank you for all your time and suggestions regarding this matter. I at least feel like I’m eliminating some factors in the cause of my problems.

I’ll have more later on…
