[QUOTE=DaedalusIkari]I’m trying to backup the second season of Farscape (paranoid about taking my actual DVDs to dorms where they may get stolen) and nothing’s working. Trying to use DVDShrink and DVDCloner just ends up complaining about an IFO file being unreadable.
I never had a problem with Farscape, season 2. I run Slysoft AnyDVD in the background to remove previews, extras, subtitles, etc. I use DVD Decryptor on the DVD and I copy with Nero 7.2 or Roxio Easy Media Creator. Both programs use great compression ratio’s to fit a DVD-9 on a DVD-5. I can always see the compression when I watch a DVD if I use DVDShrink so I stick with Roxio/Nero’s built-in compression.
Anyway, I have copied hundreds of movies and TV DVDs with 100% success. I finally hit a possible problem. I’m backing up the 4th season of Farscape. I am having trouble with the 7th disc (episode 15 & 16). 62% percent in the disc I get a media structure error on the 6th .VOB. I tried DVDFab Gold, DVDCloner, DVDdecryptor and 1 Click DVD Copy Pro. The error occurs each time. I tried 2 different PC’s and I got another copy of the Farscape disc and the same error occurs so I don’t believe it is software or PC related. The Farscape disc IS NOT CSS protected. I’ve backed up season 1, 2, 3 and I notice some discs are CSS protected and some are not. Since the 7th disc is not CSS protected, I tried backing up direct from Nero but the backup fails due to the 6th .VOB. I’m in the process of removing the 6th .VOB in my backup as I think it is part of the extra features which I often don’t watch anyway but I was trying for a complete backup. Has anyone fully backed up the 4th season of Farscape?? I’ve successfully backed up a lot of movies that were all CSS protected. The movies were TV and DVD tuesday releases so my backup method works on the latest and greatest movies. I’m guessing the DVD stamp is bad for this disc but hope to hear of someone else’s success. Thanks in advance.
