Back then it used to be a easy way for me to make a 1:1 DVD backup with DVD Decrpyter. Now that the program is dead, I have moved on to AnyDVD and DVD Shrink. I'm just wondering if what I did earlier is a exact 1:1 DVD?
I install AnyDVD 188.8.131.52 and leave all settings at default except under the Drive Tab, where I adjusted Video DVD to fast and noisy.
After that I installed DVD Shrink 3.2 and then click on open disk and select the disk in the drive. After that, a preview pops up and it analyses the DVD. I let it analyse the DVD because I don't think there is a way out of it, but after that is done, I select No Compression under Video. On the DVD Structure Window, I left it on default where it just highlight the Main Movie folder instead of the DVD logo above, is that okay or I should just leave it the way it is?
Then I click on Backup and select output as an ISO Image file and then left everything else on default. Next, I click on Edit and select Preferences and selected DVD-9 for output sizes, selected Enable overlapped I/O because ripping was so slow and that increased my speed, and I left everything else on default. Then I just let it rip and out comes the DVD image file.
What I have done, is that the correct way to get a 1:1 bit perfect DVD? Any of my steps redundant? Am I missing anything? If someone here can answer all of my questions, that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
