    I have been converting DVD's to Xvid using one of your guides from this site: "Copy your DVD to XviD with AC3 surround sound", it has worked perfectly several times. After i have decrypted and saved a project using DVD2AVI, the D2V file will not open using VFAPIConvert and i get a "VFAPI Reader Codec" error message: "???? C:\movie.d2v ??????.". i have also noticed when I select add job and try and choose a file there is no file type stated at the bottom of the open file.

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks
    Aaron

    Dunno Aaron, sometimes the program versions change and those guides grow a little stale...
    DVD2AVI is called DGIndex now (still creates a *.D2V file though).
    GordianKnot has DGIndex built in, and wants to open your D2V file and frameserve it, via AVISynth, to VDubMod using advanced error-correction capabilities.
    If you are used to having full control, and doing things manually, you will adore GordianKnot :)
    If, on the other hand, you want things to be even more automatic, there is always AutoGK...
    I recommend the latest GordianKnot
    http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_software/video_encoders/gordian_knot.cfm
    and, if you already have your XviD codec and audio codecs or whatever (incl AC3Filter for playback) you should be okay to go.
    They also offer a GKnot system pack (for people without codecs) which you may not need.
    GKnot will make beautiful 1400MB backups with AC3 for you - it will even offer to split into 2 x 700MB files ;)
    Regards
