    Hello All,
    I have been backing up DVD for some time now with great success, I got Band of Brothers on eBay which was originally from Egypt, I can not copy these DVD, I always use DVD shrink then copy with Nero 6. But when I try to use DVD shrink I get this message, "Programming error: impossible program state occurred". I have never goy this error before, I would grateful for any help.

    Thanking you.

    Hello Flip,

    I should have said that i did use dvd decrypter but the dvd was too large to fit on my blank in fact it was twice as large. Is there a way to reduce the size using dvd decrypter, or with dvd shrink and dvd decrypter.

    @handcontr: DVD Decrypter does not compress the movie, it just gets rid of the encryption and puts it on your hard drive. Then you use DVD Shrink to compress it. If you need help check out some guides in my sig.

    I'm trying to rip Band of Brothers using AnyDVD and DVD Decrypter, but it's going really slowly (<64 KB/s). Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    @ handcontr:

    Did you got original DVDs or burned discs? Sounds as the latest.

    Check out your DMA settings.

    I checked my DMA settings: all normal. Let me give a better explaination:

    I can usually rip any disc at about 4x, and band of brothers rips that fast until it gets about halfway through vts_01_03.vob and the problem continues through the rest of the vts files. Any further suggestions?

    Sounds as it has a hard time to read the disc. Tried to clean it?

    @el_pablo: maybe a defective original press. I've had those before, looks like nothing wrong on the disc physically, might even play just fine but you can't rip it. Check ScubaPete's guides (link is in my sig) for where he talks about tweaking Decrypter. That might break through your problems.

    Thanks everyone, I believe it is a problem with the disc. I'm looking for another.
