Right,1st thing I did today was uninstall AnyDvd & eradicate any bits I could find left over in the registry,rebooted,reinstalled,spent the next 10 minutes scrabbling about for my registration details,entered them,rebooted again,stopped AnyDvd from running at boot up,and closed it down.
I then found a full 8GB+ disc,(previously used one was only 6.5GB)once again with no css or encryption,which I 1st ripped to the HDD using ImgBurn via EZPicker ‘Create Image file from disc’,which it completed in 08:53…size:7.92GB.iso & 8.21KB.mds
Then I put the disc back in & selected Build - Image file,selected the Video_TS folder on the disc,named the output file to something very slightly different,but still in the same directory on the HDD as before,and proceeded to rip,this time in 07:14…identical to the 1st rip,byte for byte as far as I can tell
Next thing,I removed the disc & closed ImgBurn.Started up AnyDvd & put the disc in once more.
After AnyDvd had scanned the disc,I made sure fast & noisy was selected,just for the hell of it,then instructed AnyDvd to Rip Video DVD to HardDisk.
It did it in just over 7 minutes,which had me jumpin’ around like a man possessed,however, that euphoria was very short lived,and I’m still a tad baffled as to why this rip only produced 6.44GB,especially as I don’t have ‘Remove annoying adverts and trailers’ selected…not that there are any on the disc in the 1st place.
To be fair,I haven’t yet got around to burning any of aforementioned rips,which I usually do somewhere between 4x - 8x,depending on the discs used,and realise 1 or more may turn out to be no more than a few GB’s of completely unreadable junk,but I’ll let you know once they’re done,and have proved to me that they can be played without error,both on the 'puter,and on the standalones.
