No I haven't as I'm not too familiar with that feature, but I'll give it a try.
heres my issue. I'm trying to back up Patton and The Good, The bad, and The Ugly. dvd decrypter takes the iso off fine. run it through dvd shrink and i select make into iso and burn with dvd decrypter. so when its analyzing it the error comes up about 20-25% in on both movies. patton was unopened. so its a fine disk (i watched it to be sure) and GBU is scratchless as well.
im getting frustrated. did your tweaking ideas. and am trying to take it off as files instead of iso. argggg... n0 luck
Holy crap, it worked, thanks!
Glad to hear that!!
Lets try this just to make sure it isn't something you are doing wrong first... See that link in my signature? Click on it and go to the very first guide there and follow it to the "T".. Let me know what happens then
well i was able to get Patton to work last night finally. i tried this remove running man procedure or something... idunno all i know is ive got my movie!
and bbmayo thats pretty much what i did.
Glad to see you got your movie
Hey peoples, this is my first post and although I may be new i'd like to share a problem solving feat i came across (with the help of AfterDawn).
I too was getting CRC errors trying to backup a couple of DVD's using DVDShrink and DVDD. (I was attempting backups of Futurama S3 and Red Dwarf S3).
I managed to get around this by using AnyDVD and just using Nero Ultra Edition and just going 'Copy Disc' then running the full size image through DVDShrink to compress.
So, that is my gem of wisdom.
However I do have an inquiry for those who are more knowledgeable than I:
It seems that if i go on a burning spree and want to burn several ISO's to DVD in one sitting, I have to restart my computer in between each one or the burning process gets to 1% and stops and wouldn't you know it, a new coaster is made.
I have WinXP Pro, Athlon 2800+, 512 RAM and use DVDShrink and burn using Nero. Any ideas on how i can get around this nuisance?
Oh, and P.S. I'm in Australia so I am in Region 4.
P.P.S. The Director's Cut ending of The Butterfly Effect is FAR better than the original. - My 2 Cents.

Hey Scuba Pete (and gang)
FYI -- I noticed that Staples this week has a screaming
buy on HP brand DVD+R media: 50 discs for $18.
I've used Memorex (huge numbers of bad-burn coasters),
and Sony media (still some coasters, not nearly as bad),
but I have not yet had a single bad burn with HP discs.
(Cross my fingers, knock on wood, rub my lucky rabbit's
foot, etc... At a price like that, you can't lose.
The HP +R discs (they don't make -R's), in both the "Red" and "Yellow" packs are both made by the Mitsubishi Chemical corporation so you may feel comfortable about their quality.
Ya see ? You can get excellent quality at a good price ~ ~> you just have to shop for it (Lol)
Shop on . . . .
Reference: ScubaPete, 8. November 2004 @ 20:51 advice for disk cleaning.
Mr. ScubaPete; I noted you have placed 'Brasso' as one of your cleaning agents...? Truly? I would think it would eat right through your DVD; (well...then you certainly wouldn't have to worry about a dirty disk). Seriously, would this not damage the DVD?
Excellent Guidelines ScubaPete, I havent had any problems using DVDD, I have it set to all default settings. But if I run into any trouble, I will change some settings you'd recommended. I just completed copying 1st disc of the Tenth Kingdom...Thanks again.
DVDDecrypter -- v22.214.171.124
To tell the truth, I haven't tried it.
Spot check it for me and let me know - if it ruins the dye, I'll remove it from my post - I got that item from the Internet -
One thing to try (I'll add it soon) is CD Check -
Back to the Brasso, I have used the toothpaste and Borax. use a small amount of it, so it's pretty watery. Too much (like a pasty mix) and it cuts right through the dye layer.
I've had a problem with making back-up disks of 'Layer Cake' & now 'The Forgotten'. On the open disk analysis by Shrink - I get cyclic redundancy error in almost the same spot, about a minute in.
Following your recommendations, DVDdecrypt & VobBlanker then Shrink,
I have now succeeded! Thinking it was a manufacturing error - I was wrong! Both these originals I purchased are released by Columbia Pictures, on an orange coloured disk. Can't be just a coincidence can it?
I am using a Pioneer 106D, and now have two 'lives' left for region changes. Can anyone point me in the right direction for a solution please?
The one easy solution is to use AnyDVD. - At this time it can decrypt 100% of all encryptions.
They have a 21-day free trial -
Ok...newbie here, so if I'm asking something that's already been answered, I'm sorry.
Basically, I've read through this thread, but as still having problems backing up my movies. I used to just use dvd shrink and nero to back up discs, but have started receiving the crc error the last three or so dvds I've tried. I've tried cleaning all the discs, and still get the same problem. So I tried using dvd decriptor, as Scuba Pete set out earlier. It worked for the first disc (albeit very slowly as my dvd reader seemed to really be struggling), but the last couple have frozen up part way through. My last dvd has three read errors w/ a 162 retries and doesn't look to be going any further. I guess what I want to know is if this is something I can fix with the programs I have, or is it my dvd burner? My burner is a Sony DVD+RW DW D56A and I'm running Windows XP. If you need more info let me know. Thanks in advance.
