    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.

    So you have tried to rip the Royale Family eh? It might have been 'off with his head' 300 years ago but today luckily you can try DVD Shrink.

    Tried DVDshrink last night. It won't even look at it, fails immediately. Tells me the first file is encrypted....no dah!

    Decryptor IFO tells me:-
    Region 2
    Encryption: css/decc
    RCE protection: no

    I don't know anything about the Royale Family, but it does seem like it's an episodal. I tried to make copy of "Yes, Minister" (Region 2, PAL, but I live comfortably in Region 1, NTSC), I experienced similar problems. I simply re-authored the disk in DVDShrink and put the 6 episodes in two DVDs. When I re-authored another episodal "Porridge," I got the first episode to play 6 times on the disk. Sometimes, DVDShrink produces two copies of the same chaper, but numbers them consequtively. So, the trick is to manually re-author the source and click on each chapter and view the contents. Hope this helps. Thanks.

    I'm not doing a real good job of finding a the correct thread----for some strange reason FARSCAPE puts episode 1&7 on a disk, 2&6 ------
    how can i put at least eps 1&2 on same disk. (preferably with freeware) I don't care how lousy the menu looks on my standalone player, even if i have to create it on pinn8. I would like to play episodes in order without all the disk swapping. If we can get past this "minor" problem i can probably "shrink" it to 3 eps per disk.
    A lot of useful info on this forum---but i could use some pointing to a thread or forum that can help relocate episodes
