    Can't BACKUP HARRY POTTER - DEATHLY HOLLOWS -- NEITHER PART 1 NOR 2.

    I'VE TRIED DVD SHRINK --- STALLS AND JUST COMPLETELY QUITS DOING ANYTHING.

    I have tried DVDfab - current download a couple of days ago with "COPY"

    I have tried DVDSMITH on a new iMac 27" 3.1 MHz with 16 GB RAM -- 1 TB HD

    I'm stumped

    I used DVDfab with an older version and copied all of the Harry Potter series without any problem.

    so far today, i think I may have caught a scratch causing a copy error, of all things I smeared TOOTHPASTE on it, washed and dried it off and finally DVDSHRINK was able to Analyze it but it came up a NO GO when it came time to burn. DVDSMITH is plowing thru @ about 52% done so far. Once I get an ISO file. Toast Titanium usually gets the job done. This new iMac system usually does the entire thing in less than 20 minutes. At 75% now, never got past 65% prior to the toothpaste TRICK. 20 MINUTES now at 84%. VOILA! 100% @ 28 MIN.

    REMEMBER TOOTHPASTE, but smooth --non abrasive.

    Glad you got it after all! For future reference, these are just some things that have worked for me in the past with similar problems: Not only clean the disc like you did, but also try using a CD/DVD cleaner on your disc drive. I have also found that an external DVD drive will often be less picky than an internal one about scratches, although they are a bit slower. Play around with the aggressive I/O mode in DVD Shrink as well, and set a custom final size to be a few MB smaller than a full DVD (for me, on some brands of DVD, I have to set it to 4200 MB for a 4 GB DVD). Huge graphic-driven movies like HP might take a little more tweaking anyway. A few times DVDShrink just never worked on certain discs - had to resort to using other programs. DVD-RWs are your friends during trial and error!
