I can’t seem to get DVDShrink to make a good backup of LotR: Fellowship Extended Edition. This is the process I use that has worked for every other DVD I’ve backed up:
- Rip files from DVD with DVD Decrypter
- Remove “layer break” with IfoEdit
- Open modified files in DVDShrink 3.0 b5
- Do a Deep Analysis, Re-author, copy over main movie only
- Remove all audio streams but one and all subtitles
- Burn with DVD Decrypter
I do just that with LotR Extended, and DVDShrink makes working files, but when I play them in PowerDVD (I always test my files in PowerDVD before burning) there is a bright, flashing square-shaped spot that appears near the middle of the screen about 45 minutes into the film and does not go away. It looks like some kind of artifacting or something. I don’t get what’s wrong. I’ve only tried disc 1, I haven’t tried disc 2 yet.
By the way, it appears that there are two main movie files on the disc (when I load the files in DVDShrink there is one file called “Title 1,2” under Main Movie. When I drag that file over to the new re-author window, it splits it up into Title 1 and Title 2 files, each the same size (each ~4 GB). I’ve been deleting Title 2 and just backing up Title 1… is this the right thing to do? Why are there two different files?
