    I updated anydvd to version 6.4.7.4 and tried ripping it. It didn't complete the ripping process although it did better than the previous version. The ripping process was almost complete but then stop with 2 mins remaining left. It didn't go any further more as I kept retrying over and over again. I think, and as it look, the dvd is scratched.

    Had the same exact problem with a rental purchase of "Hitch".. Great price, but the DVD was definitely scratched.. AnyDVD (v 6.4.7.0) gave the error message you listed below.. DVD Shrink couldn't read as is and RipIt4Me also couldn't read..

    But... newest version of DVDFab HD Decrypter (5.1.0.0) was able to read and rip to the hard drive.. Took about 5 hours (much much longer than anything normally would), and seemed to hang for several hours at 1 or 2 points (probably where the scratch was)... Ran the ripped files thru FixVTS and then thru DVD Shrink..

    Where the original DVD would hang, freeze or jump to a different chapter in the player, the new disk burned from the ISO that DVD Shrink created after running thru DVDFab and FixVTS, played flawlessly.

    So just a suggestion, see if it works as well for you.

    Dang! it's no good. the original dvd is totally F-up! DVDFab Decrypter couldn't do it either. Oh well, it's not the end of the world yet. Thanks folks!

    A definite last ditch effort,, try using a mild buffing compound, like macguire's auto compound or a very mild surface restorer to buff out the scratches. This has worked a couple of times for me in the past with the kid's disks from the minivan, but like I said it is a last dirch effort. Let me know if it works for you.

    RE-kindling this. I'm having problems with backup movies not playing on my PS3. It plays previews/intro but doesn't make it to the main menu. I ran FixVTS on the files before burning with Nero, tried difference speeds. I'm trying to rip an ISO image now since I have no need to modify/shrink the DVD.

    A lot of info on this process is very outdated, talking about IFOEdit, etc. This was back way before version 5.x of DVDFab. Is my understanding basically correct in that if you don't need to re-author/shrink the movie, you can just use DVDFab and write and burn an ISO image and it should always work since DVDFab takes into account even disks with arccos protection? Or are there some other tricks I need to know when talking about Dual-Layer playback on the PS3? Is DVDFab's Clone option the end-all or is sticking to ISO images good enough?

    Guess I'm about to find out but I'm sure getting tired of making these expensive DL coasters!

    try booktyping you're DVD+R DL to DVD-ROM and see if that does it I/we only use Verbatim DVD+R DL and yeah most the time you don't need fixvts,ifoedit etc. just rip with dvdfab decrypter transcode with dvd shrink and burn with imgburn or nero.keep your burn speed at 4x or 2.4x max using DVD+R DL media
