Problems with dvd decrypter



hello, i’m new and i’m having problems with backing up the lord of the rings,extended version. when i run dvd decripter, it gives me I/O error(unrecovered read error). it’s simillar to the problem discussed in a previous thread(problem with fat albert).i tried the solution that was suggested but dvd decrypter stopped at 45 percent. i also tried dvd43 but it didn’t work eather.then i ran dvd fab decrypter and it was finished sucessfuly, but then there was a problem with dvd shrink (programming error-exception occured).any suggestions?
thank you very much for your help.


Try using clonedvd and anydvd, trials are found here. I’ve not had any problems with it yet.

What versions of anydvd & clonedvd are you running ?


I downloaded trial versions from the link you posted. AnyDVD and Clone DVD2.


did you set it to the correct region (in settings, DVD)


yes, i set it to region 2.but if you look at the information i posted above, what does this mean: " media is locked to region(s) 2.5 "? anydvd doesn’t have region 2.5 listed.


It means that the media is locked to regions 2 and 5. Players in region 2 or 5 are supposed to play this disc.


oh…ok. lol, I thought that was region 2.5 , some special region or something . :slight_smile: thanks.
