    What is the work-around if DVD Shrink or even DVDdecrypter displays read errors (e.g. scratched DVDs)?
    DVDdecrypter copies the DVD to disk with some (little) errors in the data stream but these files can't be reencoded!

    Have you got the option in DVD Decrypter 'ignore read errors' check-boxed ?

    Yes, DVDdecrypter ignores the read errors and continues to write the file after the errors which are logged in the logfile. The corresponding VOB-file on disk is some byte smaller than the original. DVDShrink stops the reencode process right at the position where the errors occured.

    The question is how can such a corrupted VOB-file be re-encoded? I just discovered that DVD2ONE can process it fine producing some frame drop-outs which is acceptable. This would be a good feature for the next versions of DVDShrink etc.
