I have this happen a couple of times - not know if it’s a progem bug or if I@m mis-using the options.
here’s the sequence.
- I copy a DVD in custom mode, mayube removeing some initial trailers/adverts & removein unwanted audio & languages.
the copy works fine.
- I then decide I want another copy of what I@ve done so I copy the 1st copy back onto my hard drive using the same FVDfab platinum program.
NB at this stage the HD version still looks findeif I open it wth powerdvd.
- Now for the crash - I lanuch FVFfab & point it at the HD copy as it’s source file - it tries to analyse whats there and then either crashes, or fails to see some of the titles ( which are still there when I view with powerdvd ). Whn I say it crashes, I mean I get the "error…must close " text and the screen inviting me to submit details & IFO files to the authors
So how come the program does not like re-copying its own customised copies ?
is it a bug , or has the customise process caused logic errors or unresolvable links to appear in the DVD titles indexing & file structures, which then crash the program when it tries to re-analyse the DVD structure ?
My most recent example was yesterday using version 3.1.4. - I’d restored a customised movie copy to my HD - there was 4.3Gb of data in the HD folder, yet whan FAB looked at it it could only see the extras title - only 20-30 minutes worth. It could not apparently see the main movie at all, yet powerDVD could see it ???
I could not see anything helpful in error logs so I gave up & deleted the whole mess.
related question: am I doing this in an overcomplicated way: if it’s true that DVDfab platinum removed all encryption when it made the 1st customised copy, then should I just be using windows software or basic DVD writer software to copy that copy, and not bothering with DVDfab platinum the 2nd time around ?
