Hello everyone, if anyone could help me with this issue it would be a great help. While i am no stranger to backing up my dvds and converting them to divx/xvid for my dvix player, my attempts at makeing a backup of my first actual dvd to dvd+r has so far ended in frustration. At this point i have used dvddecrypter(126.96.36.199) and dvdshrink(188.8.131.52). While i have a wealth of other tools (vobblank, ifoedit, dvdinfo, clonedvd) i have not used them as this is only a backup of a cartoon dvd i suspect to get heavy use by the kids. However, if any other tools would be useful please let me know. I created an ISO with decrypter and shrunk it down with dvdshrink, useing the newbie freindly interfrace to delete things like extra lanauge captions and trailers of the series. I got it down from 8GB to 4.35GB. To test the ISO, i mounted my end result in virtual drives: I tested it in both d-tools, nero image drive (Under nero 6), and 120%'s image drive. All three detect it and i can use four different dvd players to run it smoothly, with menus. However, burning it results in different results. Magiciso will detect it as a dvd image and burn it 100%, but my two players ( a magnavox and a sony, not sure on models offhand) will not read it, giving their varied error messages: not a dvd disc 'ERROR" on the sony, disc not playback able on the magnavox. Nero 6 results in a "could not write line out end of sector" or something to that extent - i'll check in a moment. DVDdecrypter gives me a I/O error and outputs about 60 hex values. Clonedvd's burner just says it can not burn and crashes. At first i thought that was an aspi error maybe, but adaptec's aspi checker says i have it running and drivers correct for XP. Nero did install the nero aspi, so i am not sure if the two are possibly conflicting. However, i can burn cd-rs in audio, data, and i made a divx backup in the burner that runs just fine on my divx standalone. The media in question is maxwell dvd+r and the burner is a HL-DT-ST DVD-RW GCA-4080 running FW 0C35. Any help is greatly thanked.
