Stranger Than Fiction has 99 VTS

Just a heads up on this title.

I was able to make a backup using AnyDVD and CloneDVD2 using the DVD-5 Quality setting (if you use the DVD-9 setting Nero Recode reports the main title is uncompressible) and ripping to the Hard Disk then burned with Nero Recode.

Yes I know I could have just burned it from CloneDVD2 but when I make a backup I also include a scan of both the DVD case jacket and the DVD it self. The only program that will let me add data files to the DVD backup is Nero Recode… New feature for CloneDVD2?

My first attempt was using AnyDVD and then burn with Recode Nero had the following error when DVD-Video files reallocation started:

“Required file VTS_21_0.VOB is not present”
“DVD-Video files relocation failed”

Next I tried to process it through VOBBlanker ad got the “Reached the 99 VTS limit” error (this is the second title that puts 99 VTS files on the DVD (Saw 3 was the first)). Then I used CloneDVD2 as outlined above and it all worked.

Could run them through FixVTS.

What version of VobBlanker are you using as the last 2 Beta versions are supposed to handle it?

Using Anydvd ripper + Recode should be able to produce a main movie only backup.

@ Corie23,

If the particular DVD Movie cannot be viewed in a DVD device by definition it is defective and should be returned for a replacement or total refund.

DO NOT PURCHASE THIS TITLE!
Sony is cruising on the edge of their customers tolerance once again!
Yes - this title has a slew of nonsense ifo commands, and vts files.
But - what is unforgiveable is that this title also has autorun executables in it.
For all those poor shnooks who still have autorun enabled on their computers - Sony is now mucking around doing whatever it feels like!
My Lite-On sata dvd drive says it is a non-standard disc format and refuses to read it or play it in any standard run of the mill dvd player program.
Is this a Sony or Lite-On problem? I do not know. Nor do I care since other Sony titles as recent as “Marie Antoinette” read and play just fine in this drive.
Avoid this title. Do not buy it.
Do not rent it.
If you’ve already purchased it or rented it - bring it back.
If you have a dvd drive which refuses to see it - complain to the drive manufacturer about that - threaten to return the dvd drive - and bring the dvd back right away!
That is what I am doing with it!

Alan,

I just got my copy from amazon … Gonna go at it after dinner. I know you don’t like compression, so did you split it with CloneDVD? If so, what chapter did you split it on? Or did you just backup DVD5 style to test if you could duplicate any problems? I may just do this one Verb DL via CloneCD … since I don’t relish the thought of de-selecting 99 TS’s!

BTW: I find all the above, angry talk about not buying the movie just plain silly(!)… :rolleyes: Or not comforming to DVD standards etc. What do you expect(?) … they’re at war with you! Sorry, you are all old friends on this thread … no dis intended … just my opinion.

Correction-Post:

Sorry Alan, I was mixing you up with Webslinger who doesn’t like compressed backups … so I have no idea whether you do or don’t do your backups done via DVD5 with compression.
