    On all the DVD (new or old) I tried the following happend:
    1)WinDVD plays fine any part of the DVD
    2)Any Ripper (Clad,Smart,....)find the structure but cannot unlock BUP files
    3)first and part of second VOB are decrypted/copied but never end of the second, third, fourth and fifth
    errors are either cannot unlock BUP or cannot read from certain byte or ReadFile function error depending on the ripper
    I am using w2k and a Toshiba 1402
    Any help or siggestions welcome

    I haven't experienced that kind of behaviour myself, so I'm afraid I'm clueless as well..

    I am having the same problem. Mine will lock up as well after a few VOB's. It did not happen though unitl I got my new video card. Gforce3. I don't know why. Does any one else?

    I'm having the same problem: locked files prevented successful ripping of the five DVD titles I've attempted so far. The solution cited on this site (and others) was to play 1-3 minutes of the movie before retrying the ripper. I tried this procedure on each title using different combinations of DVD players and rippers, with no luck. Details of the software and some observations follow.

    System info: Win 2K, Toshiba SD-M1402 drive, GeForce2 Pro

    DVD Players used: PowerDVD 4.0 XP, WinFast DVD

    Rippers used: SmartRipper 2.41, DeCSS 1.2b, DVDx 1.6, DVD Decoder, and cladMdec 1.6 (included using the 'Intensive' CSS Key Search option)

    Example procedure: I started SmartRipper, which halted at the unlock window and gave me the option to Abort/Retry/Ignore. I opened PowerDVD and played 3 minutes each at the start, middle, and end of the movie, then closed PowerDVD. I selected Retry on SmartRipper, which halted at the same place. Selecting Ignore brought up the main window, but clicking on any button resulted in an Access Violation error.

    Notes: After the first couple titles, I tried patching the firmware on my DVD-ROM to RPC1 but it had no effect. One thing I noticed when using DeCSS. It churned through the first couple VOB files just fine, resulting in viewable VOB files on the hard drive. However, when it reached a problem file, the video stream ended prematurely, and successive VOB files were listed as 'decrypted' in the gui but had a 0KB length on the hard drive.

    Any suggestions you can offer would be appreciated!

    Just a very, very stupid suggestion -- take a look at your disc and see if it is clean and doesn't have any scratches. DVDs play OK even with minor bugs on the surface, but when you're doing 1:1 digital copying, it can't skip unreadable parts.

    Wash the DVD and make sure it definately is without scratches, etc and try again.

    I did what dRD said and saved the time of downloading every ripper in existance!Had the same little prob myself was freezing up smart ripper after the 5th VOB and the dvd was making clicking noises.Got myself some good ole "Hot Breathing" and a little 2ply tissue and went a carefully rubbin.Perfect seemed to even rip them VOB's faster after.THX dRD you were right!
