I was just able to duplicate the exact problem in another backup, The Legend of Bagger Vance, while a backup of Million Dollar Baby worked perfectly. In both The Peacemaker and The Legend of Bagger Vance (which are older movies) the common item was that the PathPlayer navigation settings are grayed out after analysis of the DVD. In Million Dollar Baby the PathPlayer navigation settings were not grayed out, the settings were available and the backup DVD played correctly (I didn’t use the option). (See the posting link in my original message for jpg’s of my settings.) In all cases full disc backup was selected.
I have made 100’s of backup’s of my DVD’s with DVDFab as my Sony DVP-CX995V changers sometime like to scratch the DVD’s and I am comfortable with the use of the program. For testing I used a standalone player as the Sony sometimes introduces its own idiosyncrasies.
Both of the original DVD’s played perfectly and all the menus were available. No errors were reported during the backup process by DVDFab. Verbatim DVD+R DL media was used in all cases and was burned at 2.4X.
I have attached the IFO files for The Legend of Bagger Vance for both the original and the backup. I have IFOEdit, but I really don’t know enough about IFO files to know what to look for.
Could an error have been introduced in latter versions of the program that only affects the older DVD’s?
