My DVD Decrypter can’t copy a DVD I’ve got because too many read errors - even though I set it to ignore, it still flogs away for six hours without noticably getting anywhere.
So I got DVDFabHD - and it was even worse! It wouldn’t even complete that initial read in but instead put up a message about read errors and using some ‘path’ thing.
I said okay to that and it almost immediately threw up a screen about not finding the dvd information and asking me to email information so’s they could make dvdfab better. Info about that failure I guess.
I filled in the info and clicked ‘send’ and then got an error message: ‘no destination’!
So that was the end of that.
I tried to use dvdfabhd on ‘main movie’ copy, which is all I need (it’s just a kid’s movie) but though it responds to that menu choice click it then just hangs there doing nothing with a message asking me to put a disk in the drive.
A moment ago it had a disk and got read errors - as I said - now it reckons it hasn’t got disk.
I put DVD Decrypt up again and it finds the disk after a short delay.
So neither of those progs seems to be able to do what I want - copy this movie, or at least copy some of it, it’s in about three or four little ‘episodes’ or whatever you’d call 'em and the children would be happy if I could keep at least some. I mean right now off this old disk they see everything but I’m expecting it to further deteriorate (due to the kids mishandling) pretty swiftly and I’m trying to make backups so’s I don’t have to keep buying new ones. Which ain’t easy to find, anyway.
Any clues as to what I could perhaps use?
Are DVD Decrypt and DVD Fab the same company? Same programmers?
