    I have a DVD-R that I can't rip. However, I could copy all of the files from it to my hard drive. I can watch the DVD's conents from my hard drive. The original DVD-R plays fine on my regular DVD player, but not my Plextor DVD drive.

    However, I can't burn what's on my hard drive - I tried with Nero and I get this error message:

    Nero Recode 2 encountered an error and cannot continue.

    Failed to open the file VIDEO_TS.VOB.

    The data area passed to a system call is too small.

    Sounds like you copied a VOB over to your HD BUT since you wish to keep all informationa a State secret, I guess we'll have to wait until you tell us - So far you haven't supplied any information.

    LQQk, This is an example of the type of information we need, fill in as much as you can ~ it's all very important ~

    What are your PC's specs ?

    What programs are you using ?

    To rip ?
    To edit ?
    To Burn ?

    What Guide OR Guides are you using ?

    Was there an error ? What exactly did the error say ?

    Exactly where were you and what are you doing when your error occurred ?

    IMPORTANT: Do you have an error log and can you post it ?

    What is the name of the DVD you are trying to backup ?

    Is your media clean and free of "smudges", "scratches" and fingerprints ?

    Is it a download or a rip ?

    goterps7,

    Thanks much for the information.

    Let's take it one at a time.

    The DVD you have, isn't a DL OR is it encrypted.

    So we're dealing with a straight copy situation ~

    Normally I would suggest that you use Nero in the "Copy Disc" mode BUT we have a problem with your disc, "the scratch".

    There are two things we could try,

    1.
    Let's use DVD Decrypter in the ISO - Read - Mode to your HD THEN, Stay with DVD Decrypter to burn to your disc in the ISO - Write - Mode.

    Using the ISO Image method we copy everything that's on the disc not just the files.



    2. We can try using CD Check to see if we can recover any damaged files.

    Here are the programs suggested:

    For DVD Decrypter, Here is every step to do your job.
    See the guide (and download) called: Copy a DVD-5 with Decrypter

    http://www.dvdplusvideo.com/petesguide11.html

    For CD Checker, here is that link -

    http://www.elpros.si/CDCheck/


    Let me know how you make out,

    Pete

    PS. Yes, CD Check works on DVD's

    Due to my own stupidity, I lost the original DVD+R. However, I still have the contents on my hard drive and I can play it off of my hard drive by clicking on VTS_01_1.VOB.

    So how can I burn what's on my Hard Drive on DVD so that it will play on regular DVD players?

    Here are all the files:
    Folder - VIDEO_RM
    contains 3 files:
    VIDEO_RM.BUP
    VIDEO_RM.DAT
    VIDEO_RM.IFO
    Folder - VIDEO_TS
    contains 9 files:
    VIDEO_TS.BUP
    VIDEO_TS.IFO
    VIDEO_TS.VOB
    VTS_01_0.BUP
    VTS_01_0.IFO
    VTS_01_1.VOB - 1 Gig
    VTS_01_2.VOB - 1 Gig
    VTS_01_3.VOB - 1 Gig
    VTS_01_4.VOB - half Gig

    I'd say burn the VIDEO_TS folder. Never seen the VIDEO_RN stuff.

    In your original post, Recode 2 couldn't open the VIDEO_TS.VOB file for some reason. Because you need all the files in a VIDEO_TS folder for most of these programs, they will not work with the bad file in there.

    Because all the video and audio are in the .VTS .VOB files you should be able to salvage this movie.

    There are lots of ways to do this, here is one. I assume you have Nero 6 so you should have NeroVision Express.

    Go to your Nero folder and open Express.

    Select "Make DVD"> DVD-Video

    New menu opens...

    Select Add Video Files

    The "Open" window opens...

    Click the "Files of type" dropdown menu and select "DVD Files" and then, using the browser find your .VOB files.

    Just Highlight all of them and add them. Nero will ask you if you want to join them. Do that.

    These only:
    VTS_01_1.VOB
    VTS_01_2.VOB
    VTS_01_3.VOB
    VTS_01_4.VOB


    At this point Nero will add each file. It may take quite a while.

    Click next to move to the menu screen.

    Decide if you want a menu...upper right corner dropdown menu.

    When you are done here click Next.

    Watch preview...Click Next if OK.

    this next window gives you some options to burn to. Default should show your burner in the lower right corner. If the video size is less than 4.36 GB select burn, if bigger select Write to hard disk Folder and send your new movie there. You can now use Shrink to compress.

    That is one way to do it.

    I didn't understand that log at all BUT that could be because you used Nero express instead of Nero burning ROM.

    My thought is to open up the files and grab the everything from video_ts down.

    Make a new folder named VIDEO_TS written just like that in Caps as it's case sensitive and put all of the IFO, BUP's and VOB's into it. Nothing that had the "RM" in it, then burn with Nero Burning ROM - follow this guide -

    I apologize that it's written in German -

    [/b]HINT:
    First, create zee folder for your work on your desktop OR somewhere on your HD where you can find it again. - Name it something that you'll be able to find. I named mine C:\All My DVD Work\Sleeping Beauty Kills Bill, needs Anger Management. Now load your IFO, BUP and VOB files there - make sure they are in a folder named VIDEO_TS written like that (all in Caps) - some programs like DVD Shrink will make the properly named folder for you, others you must make the folder yourself - Nero needs that folder with all it's contents in order to work properly -

    Burning a file made by zee DVD Shrink.
    If you had used DVD Shrink to create a file on your HD you are truly in great shape. When you wish to burn, use the "File Browser" in Nero Classic (don't use Nero's Wizard), trace your path back to C:\All My DVD Work\Sleeping Beauty Kills Bill, needs Anger Management. , you don't have to remember where your work is or if you need to do anymore work on it, it is completely finished, ready to go - -

    OK zen, is everyone comfy ? Goot - its now time for - -
    "Uncle" ScubaPete's German, goose Step by goose Step, Let's burn with Nero 6 Guide -

    First - Do not use Nero Wizard -
    Please follow EXACTLY -
    Vhen you open Nero Burning ROM, you vill be at zee "New Compilation" window. Directly under the title "New Compilation" is a choice block to choose either zee DVD or zee CD, choose zee "DVD". Directly under that click on zee "DVD Video Icon." Then click "New" in the upper right corner of that screen, NOT zee main screen.
    You now are in zee "DVD Video" window. In zee left screen, click "VIDEO_TS". In zee "File Browser" screen, 3rd from zee left, trace your path to zee VIDEO_TS folder, zee one you made earlier holding all of your files and click on that folder. All of your VIDEO_TS files are now opened in zee right screen. Click on zee top file, hold down zee "Shift" key and then click zee bottom file thereby hi-lighting zee entire column of files. Click and (holding zee left mouse button down) drag zee entire column of files to zee open screen, second from zee left and release zee mouse button. Now click zee icon on zee task bar that shows a match on a disc, and then click "OK" and now, clear zee room, stand up tall and shout out, "Burn Baby, BURN" ! One more time, let me hear you say it, "Who's your Daddy Now ???"

    FIRST, use a RW disc so if it doesn't work you won't have lost a disc. If that fails, consider renting a DVD from a store and working with that - Better that than having to purchasing another DVD.

    Cheers,

    Pete

    Pete,

    I did a simulation without writing and I get this response:

    DVD-video files reallocation failed. The resulting DVD-Video may be unplayable. Do you want to continue?

    What do the DVD-R ISO and UDF choices mean?

    In doing the simulation, it says up above:

    One or more files (mostly VOB file(s)) do not belong to the corresponding IFO file

    Without an explaination of exactly what you did I have no idea - You say you didn't try to burn anything - how do you know it won't work.

    Since you're dealing with a VIDEO_TS folder ripped from a DVD - why does it say something about your ISO file ?

    Whatever you're doing it looks corrupted -


    If you want answers - you need to provide some information -

    Cheers,

    First off, as I said above - it is not ripped. What's on my hard drive was copied (via windows explorer), not ripped from the original DVD which is now lost. I couldn't rip.

    After clicking the match - I checked simulation instead of write (simulation is the choice above write). When I clicked on simulate, I got the pop-up message: DVD-video files reallocation failed. The resulting DVD-Video may be unplayable. Do you want to continue?

    And as it simulated, I looked above and saw
    One or more files (mostly VOB file(s)) do not belong to the corresponding IFO file

    I have basically given up - I had a friend make a copy of the original DVD months ago and will get the friend to copy his copy.

    I get this message sometimes and I just ignore it. Nero will still burn the movie, and it's still watchable and everything is still on the disc.

    goterps7,

    Too bad . . . If it was, we could be assured that the files were good - If it was d/l file, it could well be corruptted :(

    We'll try again to pry some information - Are these downloaded files ?
    What format are they in, RAR, Bin/Cue, AVI, VCD, SVCD, MPEG2, DVR, WMV, MPEG 2 DVD compatible, ISO or VOB's ?

    Can you run the files through CDChecker to see if they can be repaired ?

    @ squizzle,

    How's it going my Friend ?

    As you see, I tried that . . . .

    Sometimes I feel like a Dentist (Lol) :)

    Cheers,

    Pete

    goterps7,

    Sorry M8t, forgot to read the thread again, My bad.

    You got the original from a DVD recorder OR from a transfer from a VHS.

    I would say to try what was suggested, burn anyway. Use an DVD RW disc so you don't get a coaster.

    If you want to try using the RM files, Use DivxToDVD -

    http://www.vso-software.fr/download.htm

    Then use DVD Shrink if needed and burn to disc :)

    Keep us up to date on your progress :)

    We're rooting for you . . . .

    Pete
