    Hi,

    I'm trying to burn "LOST", but am having some trouble.

    This is the original message I posted in another thread, but CarMike referred me to this section.

    I tried Scubapete's advice, and have followed everything but am encountering a problem with the DVD Shrink.

    when I try to locate the file, I'm prompted with a message DVD Shrink encountered an error and cannot continue. Failed to open filed "C:\Doc..blah..\VIDEO_TS\VIDEO_TS.IFO

    I checked the folder and it does have 2 files in it. LST0NNT1 and a MDS file.

    What's the problem?

    So I went ahead and dragged the MDS file into DVD Shrink, and was able to get to the next step of burning the content, but the DVD doesn't work. It won't play.

    Something's gotta be wrong..:(

    I dled RipIt4ME following Mike's advice, but am lost as to what to do..any help will be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance

    First of all we need more information. If you posted it in another thread it doesn't help here. Car. Mike knows his stuff, so I'd imagine he knows what he was saying. Things have changed so much over the recent past, you can almost throw out a bunch of the old guides and information threads. Shrink's decryption software is out of date, so it can't be used without a decryption program to help it get by the newer copy protection. That's what RipIt4Me is, a decryption program for cleaning away the decryption and copy protection so Shrink can process the files and literally shrink the files to fit a 4.7 DVD. http://www.ripit4me.org/guide.html Read the guide and set the program up properly. Don't just try to install the programs however you like. Set up properly the program will open ripped files in DVD Shrink for you.

    But getting to the problem at hand. Where did your source files come from? You have MDS and LST0NNT1. That is not typical DVD files. Shrink has 3 Open options, DVD, Disc, and Disc Image. MDS indicates a Disc Image, though the LSTONNT1 throws me. What operating system are you using and what file system? In Open Disc Image see if you can open selecting the MDS file. Open Disc IMage is under File in the top left toolbar selection.

    If you still can't open it, answer the questions I asked and we'll see what we can do for you.

    By the way, you were obviously trying to use the wrong selection to open your files. Video_TS is the video file folder (with IFO, BUP, and VOB files inside). You'd see that when you open video files from the hard drive. Disc Image is also from the HD, but there you have and ISO or image file. That's where a MDS file comes from.

    JJYkim,
    I gave you the manual to use and told you to use the Offical installer that is in red in your other post. Do you still have the "Lost" DVD in your possession or have you lent it out to a friend? If you still have it then just re-rip the disk to the HD letting the program do it for you. Why did you just not post back in the other thread that you had started?

    PacMan777 .
    I think that the LST0NNT1 is the name of the movie. HollyWood is putting some wierd movie codes on the newer titles

    I still have the DVDs with me.
    I followed the instructions set out in the RipIt4Me, but was surprised when RipIt4Me didn't prompt me with an option to where I want the stuff to be ripped to. I think it just did it automatically. I used the 1-Click mode, btw.
    So I looked up the file, and everything that's been ripped off the dvd is in C:\LSTONNT1

    Plus, it skipped the 'Create PSL File' Option as well. After choosing the target, it directly opens DVD Decrypter

    Also, I didn't get a message "Proteced Sectors Imported Successfully"
    from DVD Decrypter.

    Within that file are about 20 files including BUP, IFO, etc.
    I'm aware that I have to create a VIDEO_TS...right?? Could someone clarify this part?

    To answer Pacman's question, when I opened the folder LSTONNT1, there's nothing in it even though I know it's filled with all the files I mentioned above.

    Just to satisfy my curiosity, I dragged said folder titled LSTONNT1 to SHRINK, and it transferred everything including the Menus, Main Movie, and Extras.

    I'm tempted to burn it, but fear I might be making a mistake.

    I'm operating on a DELL Laptop XP Home edition.


    PS SOrry about starting another thread. I thought since my problems had to deal with SHrink, it'd be appropriate to start one under the shrink forum.

    Thanks for all your input so far though.

    If you had used the 1 click method fully it would automatically open Shrink for you. If all of the files now are in Shrink then either do the whole disk or re-author the disk to do main movie.

    The reason no PSL files were used is that it did not need them. The files after ripping will always be in the C: Root Directory just like DVDD did.

    Good Luck and let us know how it went. I would suggest though that you do Movie only and remove the subtitles and the audio that you do not need.

    EDIT:
    "I'm aware that I have to create a VIDEO_TS...right?? Could someone clarify this part?
    The program does everything for you automatically and you have to creat nothing

    Great!

    I'm burning it on a DVD rw I have, just in case.
    But I'll definitely let you know what happens.
    Thanks for all your help

    btw- it should be okay even though I just dragged the entire folder into Shrink...

    I'd suggest reading the guide to see how the program works. http://www.ripit4me.org/guide.html If you had, you'd know you could set the path for your ripped files in Preferences. That's why the program doesn't prompt you.

    I successfully burned the first Disc of the series.

    Now the problem is with the second disc.
    I followed the same exact steps that I used for the first DISC, but when I opened up DVD Shrink, I'm met with this message:

    "DVD Shrink Encountered a problem and cannot continue. The specified folder is invalid.
    The system cannot find the path specified."

    The file where everything is located in is under C:\LST_0N_NT2
    I opened up the folder, just to make sure and it contains about a dozen files including IFO, BUP and VOB files...

    I'm not sure what I did wrong...:(

    BTW- Pacman, I compared my preference settings with your settings for RIPit4me, and noticed that the box for "include VIDEO_TS" wasn't checked on mine. The guide also says that I should just leave the settings as is, but I'm just curious. Should I go ahead and check that?

    PS- I checked and there doesn't seem to be any ISO files in the folder where everything has been ripped to...what am I doing wrong? It worked for the first disc, but for some reason, I'm having trouble burning the other discs

    JJYkim,
    When you rip the files to HD they are ripped in file format ( vob,ifo,bup) and not in image file (iso)format. The program then automatically opens Shrink and that is where you can make the DVD files turn into an image file and then burn w/ DVDDecrypter or Imgburn. So there are no image files when you rip the DVD to HD.

    So when Shrink opens up, what should I do? B/c when I press 'Backup!' all it says is ISO file not found. Directory does not exist...

    Thanks in advance

    Sounds like you've been reading too many guides. Was that the official guide at http://www.ripit4me.org/guide.html or one you found elsewhere? You want to rip in one of the file modes I indicated in the drop down box, ignore the ISO for now. Check the Video_TS folder as I did. Shrink looks for a Video_TS folder when it goes to open files. Use the 1_click mode and have all your preferences set like mine except for the path. That is unless you have a D: drive with a Ripped Movies folder. ;) No Video_TS folder would have had you messed up. Remember... 1-Click and the files open in Shrink for you. You shouldn't be having to drag anything unless you're editing in Reauthor in Shrink.

    Yup.. I have..ahh~
    Why won't Shrink open up the ripped files?
    Strangest thing is, it worked fine for the first Disc.
    I didn't change any settings on any of the programs so
    why is DVDShrink giving me these problems, telling me
    that it dosen't recognize the directory path.

    For that option, I just chose the folder that contains the ripped contents right?
    For instance, RipIt4Me stores everything from the original dvd
    in C:\LST_1
    Then, that's the folder I choose for the target file?

    Wrong. Shrink would look for a folder like C:/Lost/Video_TS/... assuming Lost was the movie I was doing.

    Humor me. Create a folder to save your ripped movies to. What better than the name I gave mine, Ripped Movies or RI4M Ripped Movies. Then set the path in Preferences and check the Include Video+TS option. Then use the 1-Click mode and see if the files don't open automatically in DVD Shrink. Just forget about those guides you were reading for a few minutes. After all, they're what got you here. ;)

    In the Video_TS folder these files appear besides the IFO, BUP, and VOB files.

    [​IMG]

    Shrink opens with these files in the Video_TS folder along with the video files. I've found other programs may not, so I put them in a separate folder and save them outside the Video_TS folder.

    PacMan777,
    JJYkim and I have been going back and forth w/ PM's the last 2 days and for the life of me I can not see anything incorrect in the Log and it should open w/ Shrink or at least the log states it does. One of my Ideas was the same as yours about the "Full DVD". The only thing I can think of is the disk has to be a bad mastering press. I do not have that disk in my collection so I can not comment on the problems w/ it. Since it is an episodic disk I think he was trying Full Disk backup. The only way Shrink will screw up an episodic disk is when you pick different episodes ( pick the 1st and the 3rd) and the main ifo file does not have the correct order inside. If you have any ideas please post them as I am out of ideas as to what is causing this. This might make me go to BB and get a copy and see what the problem is w/ this disk

    JJYKim just said there was no Video_TS folder being created. As you know, transcoding software looks for the Video_TS folder in File mode. It may be a bad authoring, but if it plays, it should record unless the press has bad sectors. I'd like to see RipIt4Me used with the settings I've shown. With little difference, they're the default settings for the program.
