    Could you be a bit more specific as to why you're having trouble ripping it?

    I tried using dvd decrypter to rip the dvd. When I went to play it the player simply could not read it at all. When I did get a copy to play it would jump chapters and not play consistantly. There would be various scenes that would look very, very pixulated and others not. I did not compress the movie and its not large enough to do so.

    So you have the film on your hard drive, correct?


    By this do you mean you're playing it from your hard drive with a software player or from a burned disc in a standalone player?

    Could you list any and all software you're using to do this?

    Make/model burner?

    Brand/type media and speed your burning them at?

    Yes, I burned a iso as well as a file copy to the hard drive using dvd decrypter. I'm trying to get my stand alone component player to play the a copy.I have dvd decrypter, clone dvd, and dvd shrink as my primary programs. I usually use clone dvd to burn the disc cuz I've had problems with nero. I have plextor's newest single layer burner.I burn at 4x normally and use various brands but mostly tdk. I've gotten others copies to work just for some reason this region 4 encoding is not working.

    The film may be in a format other than NTSC. Try loading one of the VOBs in VirtualDubMod or possibly FlaskMPEG, they should tell you if it's NTSC or PAL.

    Does this mean it will not play at all no matter how I burn it?

    That's hard to say until we know what format the film is in ;)
