If you noticed Anydvd found invalid VOBus in the dvd+r copy
too. It appears that the invalid Vobus was not removed
completly. I sent the IFO files to slysoft. I dont have problems copying the movie.

Yes , I come across the also ,
and would use the AnyDVD"RIPPER" first
to remove invalid VOBUs!
The playback doesn’t seem to be effected ,
but I would rather remove these from my back-up
… when possible .

I have also found that enabling 1ClickDVD’s CPRx is very effective
in 'Cleaning up" the back-up .

I had used the “RIPPER” on "When a Stranger Calls"

Here’s an example of the CPRx result
Both Back-ups were done with exactly the same settings
except for CPRx …

Now , It has been said that CPRx
and AnyDVD’s "Copy Protection based upon Unreadable Sectors"
may conflict with each other ,
But I’m finding , at least in my results ,
that CPRx seems to give AnyDVD a little extra “boost”

Anyway , It saves me the time of having to use the “RIPPER”
…nice ! :cool:

It is the same that this threat, but diferent title.

I want to know what Slysoft has to say about it, maybe is a bug, maybe not.


#4

What version of AnyDVD do you have? You’ve told us nothing, so we cannot help.


#5

Well, if you check the Anydvd report in the original threat you will see the version.


#6

Why should we have to read another thread to get your info? You need to provide the info (version, MOVIE TITLE, etc.) or better yet…

why didn’t you just reply to that thread and update it?

Besides, the latest version of AnyDVD is 5.9.6.3


#7

calcu, if i understand correctly ,you’re not really looking for help, but for a comment form slysoft, correct?

have you tried sending your findings to support(at)slysoft(dot)com?

tha would be the best place to direct your inquiry rather than hope they stumble across a forum posting.

I’ve merged the threads.
