I’m using TMPGEnc Mpeg Editor (version 1.32.98) and AnyDVD version 18.104.22.168 to backup my DVD collection and transcode to Mpeg 2 video and Mpeg I, layer 2 for the audio. The reason I’m re-encoding is I’m using MCE 2005 with several media center extenders, which only support Mpeg 2 and Mpeg I, layer two for the audio.
So far, this combination has worked flawlessly. Every one of my DVD’s have come over, quality has been excellent, AnyDVD has worked everytime. EXCEPT now that I’ve gotten to my Star Wars DVDs. TMPGEnc fails with a “Divide by 0” error message when it’s re-encoding the movie. I have tried their tech support and their official position is that they can’t help me because I’m trying to copy copywrited dvd’s (blah blah, I OWN them, I can do what I want with them). But they did say that I should check with the AnyDVD folks to see if possibly it isn’t decrypting the DVD correctly and therefore causing the TMPGEnc to fail.
