    Greetings folks. I'm a newbie here, but I have experience. The error I recieve is F:\VIDEO_TS/VTS_12_3.VOB: invalid file size. This happens with DVDXcopy plat. at 39% into rip. Clonedvd and anydvd gives error before it can rip. Going to try DVDdecrypter with dvd43 and see what happens any other suggestions.

    One up to date ripper will do. Both anydvd and decrypter will rip this without a problem. Just make sure they are the latest versions. You also might want to make sure the disc is clean and free of scratches(buff it out the best you can). Even the slightest mar can effect the ripping process.

    I backed up this movie a week and a half ago with decrypter and shrink without a problem.

    I agree with "wolfniggr " about issues with a disc with dust - dirt on it. I have have had a RIP or two fail due to this problem.

    Just ripped House of Flying Daggers today. It has the latest protection code on it. You will need to use the latest version of DVD Decrypter to rip it.

    Thanks,gentlemen! DVD Dycrypter is the one. Used along with shrink as suggested demolished it! I originally had trouble with CONTROL; I thought it was a bad dvd. I let DVD Decrypter out of its cage and it devoured CONTROL. LOL!

    I've backed up "HOFD" using 2 different softwares and both are fine. The first one is a Verbatim 2.4X DVD+R DL using [bold]InterVideo DVD Copy 3 with DVDIdle Pro 5.8.2 [/bold]running in the background. The second is a TDK 8X DVD-R using [bold]1Click DVD Copy 4.1 using DVD43 v3.2.5.113.[/bold] Both completed the job easily and I've tested with both of my Philips and Samsung DVD Players without any freezing. Have fun burning...!!

    I have read all the posts regarding this HOFD and although I've tried running the ANYDVD in the background, I still can't get it to go. I narrowed it down to VOB 11.3, the rest is fine. I have the latest DVDDecrypter, I've tried with Shrink, and still nothing. This is the second one that I've tried both at the same place. Any other suggestions you guys could help with?
    Thanks,

    Never had any problems backing up ANY DVD. Been doing it for over a year now. Always use DVD Shrink. Until HOFD. I can't use Shrink cause I keep getting error. I used Decrypter and reads it & stores it on my hard drive fine but is 8gb of space. How can I back it up now?I don't have a dual layer burner. How do I compress the space to fit on a 4.7 gb blank DVD?

    It's most likely a bad disc from scratches or dirt. You can try rinsing with soap and buffing out the smudges, etc. or just get another copy. The problem is the original, not Decrypter.

    Since your have the movie on your HD use Shrink to compress it. Just use the option 'open file' and pick the movie. Remember though it will store the movie to HD but size will be around 4.3gig. So you'll have the same movie 2x on your HD taking up about 12.3 gig. Or if you have Nero you can use Recode which only creates a temp file.

    I had the "VTS_12_3.VOB: invalid file size" problem when I tried to burn with Clone DVD (ver 1 not 2). Shifted to DVD Shrink and it worked fine. The latest Decrypter is a must. (Before I upgraded, VTS_11_3.VOB was killing my old Decrypter).

    So after I click on 'open file' do I click on the mds file or the bigger file? Then after I click 'open file' do I do 'write' with the blank dvd?

    Well, regarding HOFD, I've noticed that all the movies from Sony Pictures, are the one giving us problems. The same happened with "The Forgotten" and "Resident Evil:Apocaplyse". Sony must be using a new copy protection scheme. I used DVDXCopy, never could get it to work. But thanks to you guys, I now can. I really appreciate it.

    Just an FYI the new copy protection is called Sony Arccos.
    Check out BBMayo's post #6: http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/183136
    As you can tell they (sony) thought they had the best copy protection.
    But hey isn't that these forums are for? Help people in need?

    I don't know why some of you have such a hard time backing up HOFD. These latest softwares or version from "DVD43 v3.5.2.113, AnyDVD, DVD Decrypter, DVD Region Free, DVDIdle Pro" should easily completed the job.
