The dvd is an original titled North Shore, vintage 1987. The disc is in perfect shape, and I have acquired it less then a year ago. I attempted to use DVD Fab HD Decrypter current vs 184.108.40.206, Region 1. It processes up to about 60% and stops during vts_01_4 vob, before I get a read error, and a second attempt is the same. I have Windows XP Pro with a 3.0 Ghz processor. I tried again on another desktop pc with Windows XP Media, again same exact results.
Now, I tried Ripit4me, and it completed the decrypter process, cleanup of the vob files, etc, then DVD Shrink starts for about 45 seconds, before I get an error. "out of memorry" not enough storge is available to process the command. I tried just the main movie only, both with HD Decrypter and reauthoring in the DVD Shrink mode with the same results. I did notice in the DVD Shrink mode the compression was in Auto and compression set at 57.3%. which gave me the total on the green bar 4464mb. However, when I attempted to reauthor, main move title 1 showed 6045mb, while the green bar displayed 4464mb. When I selected backup, I received the out of memory error. I gave up then.
Ripit4me saved serveral logs. One is very long. If I need to send a copy of a log, please describe which one is needed and where to send it. Thanks again SJ.
