Has anyone had any success backing up the movie ‘The Holiday’? Heres what happening for me. When I put the the movie in my DVD drive, the computer initially sees the movie and it is accessible through [My Computer] but after about 5 seconds the movie mysteriously no longer is in the drive per Windows even though the drive is not physically ejected. Ive tried this in XP and Vista. I am using AnyDVD as well and you can see the icon for AnyDVD go from light to dark red and back to light red as well as if its ready and then not ready. If anyone has any input please, PLEASE let me know. Thanks!!
My best guess:
Sony has taken to adding executables on their dvd’s these days that can potentially screw up your computer if you have autoplay enabled. I know that this title has executables enabled via autoplay. You need to disable autoplay - or stop inflicting Sony products on your computer.
My advice is - disable autoplay on any and all optical drives in your computer. AND stop buying any Sony products.
The new version that came out today addresses this issue.
With anydvd 188.8.131.52 I was able to copy the contents to my hard drive with DVD Decrypter but when I run DVD Shrink to compress it, it says “DVD Shrink encountered an error and cannot continue. Invalid data in file “C:\Holiday, The\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_6.VOB””

with no problem.
RipIt4Me and FixVTS. Check them out. They are VERY useful when ripping Sony and many others. Of course you need to install DVD Decrypter, run the RipIt4Me executable and have the FixVTS file in the same directory. It will ask you a couple questions. Will work with DVD Shrink without a problem. Be sure to do all the fixes that they can do. Best part about it all… It’s all free (DVD Decrypter, DVD shrink, FixVTS, and RipIt4Me). That and I haven’t heard of them failing yet.
Invalid data in file “C:\Holiday, The\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_6.VOB”"
If you feel that you have nothing to lose, you could run this file or the whole folder through FixVts & then try opening in Dvd Shrink. All you have to do is open up the folder, drag&drop any vob file in to FixVts & if you want to do the whole thing just click Full Dvd. Make sure all three boxes are checked. As of the last version of RipIt4Me that had FixVts integrated in to it, you no longer recquired FixVts to make RipIt4Me work, unless you wanted it on it’s own.
In answer to this old thread, now plugging alternatives to CloneDVD, no problems at all with AnyDVD and Clone DVD2 for this movie…
