First, I am using the most recent versions of CloneDVD (126.96.36.199) and AnyDVD (188.8.131.52), as of this writing (just in case you were going to ask).
I’ve included a screenshot of the error I get. So far this has only happened on a certain series of disks–the Bob Hope/Bing Crosby “Road” movies (i.e. “Road to Morocco”, “Road to Zanzibar”, etc.)
I am able to rip the disks just fine, when I use DVD Decrypter, and then transcode and burn using either Clone DVD or Shrink. But no matter what DVD drive I use (I have 5), Clone DVD complains that it can’t find VIDEO_TS. Obviously, it’s finding something, as you can see in the right pane of the screenshot, and the VIDEO_TS directory is clearly visible in Clone’s file selection window. But if I go thru all the setup screens and try to rip and burn, I get the “Oh no!” error. So something’s wrong.
Since the bitrate on the “Road” movies isn’t that high, I get a good video out of it, but I want to know what’s causing this error, just in case I run into it on a movie that I don’t want to compress.
I did try a very recent movie (Sin City), and Clone DVD was able to read it just fine. It just seems to be this one particular series, and I’d like to find out what’s “special” about them.
They do have one of those obnoxious players that tries to install itself on insert, on the DVDs, but I’ve had other DVDs that have also had this, and they rip and burn just fine. So can anyone give me some insight into what might be causing this?
