Hi all. Iâ€™ve tried to track down answers to the following but have hit a wall so far. I have followed some of the guides in this forum and elsewhere but I still end up with more or less the same results when trying to shrink a movie onto a single layer blank which is a â€˜copy protection error/ I/O device errorâ€™.
Using DVD Decrypter, I have succeeded every time in backing up a DVD to my HD because it doesnâ€™t really matter how big the file ends up being. The problem is making the file small enough to fit on a blank DVD. If the movie is more than approx one hour 30 mins (having stripped away all other features by having selected movie only in DVD Decrypter) it wont then fit onto a blank 4.7 GB DVD.
I have tried â€˜shrinkingâ€™ (using DVD shrink) but keep getting the â€˜copy protection error/ I/O device errorâ€™ every time. After analysis failed, I used ripit4me, but all that does is remove the dummy sectors through DVD decrypter so the movie was still 5.2 GB(100 % of its original size) instead of being 86% of its original size which it would need to be to fit on a single layer blank.
Im not sure where to go from here, would appreciate any suggestions.
