    Hi camarienz, welcome to aD,

    A CRC error on an original disc is one of 2 things:

    1. The disc is dirty. Use a commercial disc cleaner. They are available from about $14.00 (USD) from Tandy, Radio Shack, etc. OR you can clean it with alcohol and a soft cloth rubbibg from the center outward.

    2. The disc may be damaged.
    Scratched where it cannot be seen Scratched so much you can see it OR it could be a disc with a factory blemish.

    Let's take a moment to fine-tune your DVD Decrypter's settings. First, it should be version 3.5.2.0. Go to "Tools", "Settings", set everything to "Default". Then in the "General" tab change, "Removal Method" from "Normal" to "Aggressive", in "File Mode", "tick" Remove IFO/BUP PUO's." For ripping in the "ISO, Read Mode", "tick" "Remove IFO/BUP PUO's" there also. in the "CSS" tab, under "CSS Cracking Method", choose "Brute Force ~> I/O Key Exchange" and "On Failure" choose "Yes". . IMPORTANT: In the "I / O" tab, in the bottom right, "tick" the box which says, "Ignore read errors". This is an excellent setting for dealing with lightly scratched discs which may cause reading problems. We're now finished with our settings here so click "OK." There's no reason to change these settings. DVDD is good ripper right out of the box, all we did is to give it some "teeth." (Lol :)

    Under "Mode" we have a choice of either File or ISO Read to rip our DVD. I like to try it in the "File" Mode. We want to create a folder named VIDEO_TS (written like that ~> case sensitive) as a destination location.

    Then pick it up using DVD Shrink "Open Files" and process as usual. The main page S/B self explanatory - Now, go rip our happy heart out - :)

    OK, iffin you need a new version (Jan. 05, '05)
    Here it is -

    Report back on your progress,

    Cheers,

    Hi Pete and many many thanks for taking the time for you experienced tuition...at the risk of sounding like a dummy to set up a file ~>VIDEO_TS my file manager is not allowing me to add the (>) in the file name. I have decrpted the DVD referred in my original question and is now in the local disk as a MDS file.
    and of course shrink does not detect this file so I thught I could just drag and drop this file into ~>VIDEO_TS if my file manager would let me ......more than likely its computer dummy me doing it wrong ....your help greatly appreciated ..Oh my version is 3.5.4.0

    hi

    you only need VIDEO_TS not the ~> part!

    dvd decrypter will make an mds and an iso you need to load the iso to shrink! this is for iso read mode!

    now all my DD settings are default install ones! except! i turn off creation of mds file so it only makes iso in iso read mode

    dvd shrink can load iso or files ripped in file mode!

    i think but not sure if you make an mds file thats all you will see in folder!??? but i think the iso should be there?

    DVD-9 -> DVD±R
    using only free software

    Hi Pete....Success!!!! got to work ,rip and burn...only did it slightly different to your way .
    Shrink kept giving me error: Failed to open file C:\VDEO_TS\VIDEO_TS.IFO
    "The system cannot find the file specified" even though I dropped down this file in shrink open file and clicked on .....so anyway I downloaded Daemeon Tools put the IFO file into a virtual drive and shrink picked uo that file and the rest is history.

    Thankyou so much again for your guidance ,I feel like an older version of a computer wiz kid.

    Cheers

    Cameron,

    Ripping in the IFO mode leads to too much work and a higher chance of errors. By adding additional steps it only adds to places where more can go wrong.

    Perhaps printing out the guide first so that you can follow along would be better -

    Rip the DVD in the Mode - File, NOT Mode - IFO.

    (Cameron, you have to be smart enough to not type in every bit of punction you come across. That way the guides in my sig will make sense)

    I have no idea where you got -

    You were to make a folder and call it VIDEO_TS

    also,

    There is no reason to eliminate the Mds file as when burning with DVDD it truly LOVES Mds files (which, BTW,are together with the ISO image.) As a matter of fact, the older DVDD versions used to put up a sign when you clicked on the ISO Image rather than the Mds file.

    As for the settings, I like the following when fine-tuning my DVD Decrypter's settings.

    First, it should be version 3.5.2.0. Go to "Tools", "Settings", set everything to "Default". Then in the "General" tab change, "Removal Method" from "Normal" to "Aggressive", in "File Mode", "tick" Remove IFO/BUP PUO's." For ripping in the "ISO, Read Mode", "tick" "Remove IFO/BUP PUO's" there also. in the "CSS" tab, under "CSS Cracking Method", choose "Brute Force ~> I/O Key Exchange" and "On Failure" choose "Yes". . IMPORTANT: In the "I / O" tab, in the bottom right, "tick" the box which says, "Ignore read errors". This is an excellent setting for dealing with lightly scratched discs which may cause reading problems. We're now finished with our settings here so click "OK."

    Cheers,

    Pete

    Though I don't "do" games I believe that games unlike DVD's must be done in a 1:1 backup, no compression allowed.

    What I am sure of is, as long as you use DVD Decrypter in the ISO Mode, then burn to disc in the ISO Write Mode you'll be good to go.

    I suggest you try our "XBox" Forum for the best information -
