I have tried to rip the Royale Family - Series 1, Region 2 PAL. When using DVDdec or Smartripper both programs encounter a decrytion problem at VOB_3_2 and cannot decrypt, therefore they won't run in DVD2One or CloneDVD. Smartripper reports "no encrytion" after trying all methods to generate a key, DVDdec just fails at the same point. Any Ideas? Could the fact that my DVD reader is not region free be causing a problem (I am Stateside, Region 1). I have all this series and also Only Fools & Horses and would really like to convert them all to region 1 backups.
