    is there any way to skip bad sectors /scratches with shrink or decrypter? trying to back up but my three year old got there first.99% of the movie is fine but shrink shuts down when it gets to the bad bit.I tried polishing out to no avail, any suggestions without further adding to corporate profiteering?is it just me or do they use pretty low quality media i have had some where the scratch is almost invisible do the same thing,gets so far then just says read failed.any suggestions other than handcuffing my kid will be gratefully recieved,thanks mozzaok

    You could set Decryptor to Brute Force and it might work past the bad sector. You said Shrink shuts down after the bad bit, have you tried ripping it to the HDD first then Shrinking?

    i thought "brute force "was referring to how decrypter got through the protection systems rather than how it reads the whole disc but i will give it a try. i am a bit of a drongo with computers and am probably overlooking something obvious. yesterday i tried cleaning again and going through decrypter and ended up with 8GB of files in WINRAR.i have only recently installed this program and have no idea how to use it yet but it looks like all the files that should be are there. it also took nearly 8 hours to do it.i have ripped and burned whole movies in less than half an hour so i am totally lost.i'll try and do some more research and try your tip. thanks.

    Why are you using WINRAR with the Decrypter files?

    Even at 2x it should only take around 45 min. to rip an average DVD 6-7 gigs.My Plextor will rip a movie in 10-15 mins. with speed read enabled.

    Check out this guide for your Decrypter settings

    In Decrypter under [bold]Tools > Settings > I/O > Ignore Read errors[/bold] see if that helps.

    thanks wild 77 I did not intend the files to end up in winrar annd as I mentioned it is only newly installed so it may have made itself the default setting or something. I am not stupid with other stuff but as a middle aged man relatively new to computers I am definitely a newbie, I used shrink to compress and burn the whole lot of files and it will play on a standalone dvd player with bad video pixalation and audio errors around the damaged sector which is only for about 30 secs worth of the movie then carries on fine but on my pc using power dvd it freezes at the bad sector unless I skip over it.what I am really looking for is a way to "edit"around the bad sector.even setting decypter or shrink to ignore read errors won't get past this scatch which does not look that bad to the naked eye and i cant find a program where i can select which scenes to skip because it gets hung up at the analysing stage. it may be time to get desparate and try toothpaste. I never can tell if people are being serious or taking the p when they suggest this but i have nothing to lose by trying. thanks for your suggestions anyway
