I tried several times and failed to rip a movie DVD using AnyDVD & DVDShrink . It seemed due to some scratches on the DVD disc . I tried also DVD Decrypter and the same sad result. However, with DVD Decrypter I was able to pinpoint the problem to a specific .VOB file ( i.e. where the scratch occured ) . Apparently, the DVD reader on my PC could not skip the corrupted sectors and just froze! However, the stand-alone DVD player can play the disc perfectly on TV . Is there some programs that can skip those scratched locations and rip the DVD disc ? Please advise. Thanks.
