    When you Re-author > Main Movie only, on a disc that has this Structure Protection, you should use Start/End Frames settings to remove the blank frames.

    The blank frames are the area where the Stucture Protection was. The original disc has an IFO file that skips those blank frames, but the protection is there in those Structure Protected Sectors and causes backup problems unless removed with DVD Decrypter or AnyDVD. Once the Structure Protection is removed you still have those blank frames.

    When you Re-author those blank frames are no longer skipped because DVD Shrink rewrites the IFO file. Using Start/End Frames removes those blank frames and writes the IFO file so that it begins where it had been edited to start.
