So I just got into the wonderful world of ripping & burning DVD's on my new PC and have been reading the boards for a while. I am using DVD decrypter to rip the files then using DVD Shrink to re-author the DVD getting rid of bonus feature and stuff to save compression.
Anyhoo so far it has worked perfectly on every DVD but one. Its a movie called "Contamination" (yes I'm into cheesy Euro-horrror) and when I'm ripping the files with DVD decrypter it keeps giving me an error in the exact same place on the exact same file. I didn't write down the error message (soory) but it was an I/O error saying it couldn't get a certain segment in the file and asked if I wanted to ignore retry or skip the file. If I say ignore it ripps a little more than gives me the same error again and again and again. If I skip the file then DVD Shrink won't complie the DVD and that file contains a major chunk of the movie anyway.
Now I chalked this up to a badly scratched up DVD but I supposedly got a replacement of the DVD but the second one I got looks suspiciously like the one I had to begin with and it errors out in the exact same place.
So my questions are: Can a scratch that would not interfere with normal playback cuase a DVD drive to not be able to read the data and does this sound like some kind of specially encrypted file or a f'ed up DVD?
