I have had trouble playing my backup DVD movie of Troy.
Firstly, the way I backup all my movies is I rip only the movie file out, then I take out all submenu and foreign languages. Basically, in the end I have only the Movie file and a 5.1dts surround sound audio file… Thats it!!!
I use DVD Shrink or in some cases DVDDecrypter or DVDFabDecrypter bundled with DVD Shrink. In this particular case, I used DVDFabDecrypter and DVDDecrypter because the protection could not be surpassed otherwise.
The DVD I used to backup onto was a Vertbatim DVD DL 9.5GB disc, as they seem to be the best. My scan was great, I scanned with K-Probe. And the Media Dye was the typical Mitsubishi used as always.
The movie was burned on my NEC 3500 (2.TC) which does a great with these discs and was burned at 2.4x.
I tried this and the movie will play on my PC with any software but will not play in my DVD player, it will just say that it is reading the disc and then “STOP” will display, and thats just about all there is to it.
I have successfully played Verbatim DL discs on this player before with full movie rips and partial rips as well.
I tried several burns on different Verbatim batches and nothing worked.
In further experiment, I did a fully compressed burn onto a regular 4.7GB Sony TY(02) disc and that played just fine.
I also did a FULL backup of this movie with menu’s and all to a verbatim DL disc and it was unable to play either.
Has anyone else encountered a problem like this, any suggestions as to what it can be?
I suspect it is the encoding engine of DVDSrink and this particular movie which is simply not liked my by player, I can try CloneDVD to see if it makes any difference but I do not want to keepwasting my DL discs, they are quite pricey after all.
Please post any feedback or suggestions. TIA.
