Hi there, I'm hoping someone can help me as I am completely stuck right now. I am trying to backup a DVD of mine, but to no avail. It is a DVD with anime episodes on it, not a movie. These DVDs I purchased on eBay, I believe they are more of a bootleg version (pressed DVDs, not burnt), but they should still work. I was kind of surprised that they work as it is a 4-DVD set, and each DVD holds 10 episodes, but they all play fine. Now my problem is that I can easily compress the last 2 DVDs and burn them to a DVD-5, but the first 2 DVDs are not cooperating. I am operating off of Nero Recode 2 and DVD Shrink 188.8.131.52. I have tried using both of them to compress the DVD so that it will fit onto my DVD-R and it compresses, but the main video file is completely screwed up by the last 2 episodes. Major pixeling, not watchable. This did not happen with the last two discs, so I can not figure out why. Then I tried ripping the complete file in it's original size with DVD Decrypter and it works fine, all episodes play, no pixeling. When I took that DVD rip from the hard drive and tried to load it into both Nero Recode and DVD Shrink both programs rejected the last video file (VTS_01_8.VOB) and would not load the files. I'm not sure what to do, whether I might be able to try other programs. My knowledge on backing up DVDs is pretty limited, I have stuck to the simplest ways so far. Please help me if you can.
