First posted this to the incorrect group - lets hope I get more luck here I've used dvd decrypter in file mode to read a scratched dvd and write the data to my hdd. Using powerdvd the file plays fine - on one of the vobs I notice there is a line of corrupted pixels (due to the scratched dvd and decrytper skipped the sectors it couldn't read) Its not too bad of a corruption and u can hard notice it. I would like to shrink this files down to a dvdr....but do u think I can do it. dvdshrink complains when its encoding, dvd2one also bombs out at the same place with "the logical block number does not match with the actual position in the file" I presume its gotta do with the corruption in the vob. How do I go about shrinking this down to a dvdr now? Does the vob need to be repaired? How do I go about doing this? Any help would be appreciated.
