One more question, does VobBlanker and FixVTS the same? If not, what's the difference?
FixVTS will get rid of any blank, or unreferenced cells and your file will be cleaned. VobBlanker will edit your file along with cleaning, FixVTS is not an editing tool, just a cleaner. I have used VB to edit old 321 Xcopy backups to get rid of the nag screen.
So, VobBlanker is better?
If you want to edit out cells like warnings/menus yes. If all you are looking for a clean rip and want to use other sw then FixVTS works fine. FixVTS is incorporated into AnyDVD for their ripper to clean out suspect cells. I use DVDRB and CCE for movies, sometimes using VB does not agree with that program, whereas FixVTS does not give it a problem in opening the file. It is all in what the user prefers.
That's cool to know (about the AnyDVD incorporating FixVTS into its ripper part)! Thanks, and I'll stop bothering you.
Lol, no bother at all
i've used RipIt4Me for three different dvds. love it. used both the wizard and one click modes (since one click automatically does all available processes, it seems wizard exists only to use the option to skip some process/step if desired...). i followed the guide exactly (as per the RipIt4Me website), including saving logs so that they are removed from the destination folder. the problem: when shrink opens nero to burn, nero gives me an error message ("file reallocation failed"). it also reports (please excuse my memory-lapse paraphrase here, this happened yesterday LOL) "missing file VOB_02_01", and the listed missing file seemed to be different even on different attempted runs of the same dvd. hmmm? then get the message that "dvd may not be playable, do you want to continue?" first few times i chose "no", and canceled. whereupon i used the existing output files from shrink to burn without a problem using clonedvd2. no error messages of any kind. last night i went ahead and burned using nero despite the "file missing" and "may not play correctly" warnings, and it seems to look and play fine and be fully functional. i wonder if anyone else has encountered this and what i might need to do (some nero setting?) to avoid the error message. otherwise i guess i will just burn them despite the error message. Thanks to the creators of RipIt4Me. sure makes things easy using the free software mode!
I too have gotten that error message with Nero, when trying to manually burn an output file that has used FixVTS, i.e. one that was ripped using the AnyDVD ripper. I just burn anyway and as you have found the movie plays just fine. Since Clone is made to work well with AnyDVD and this program now incorporates FixVTS it stands to reason Clone will work.
That's just Nero. Just create your ISO image file in Shrink and burn with ImgBurn. You'll be fine.
Gentlemen, I am running into a problem at Step #4, using the RipIt4Me software. I am trying to back up 'Pink Panther'. Everything works like a charm upto Step 04. At which time, I am looking for the file, 'FixVTS.exe'. Unfortunately, that file does not exist in the folder. Where am I goofing up?????
Thanks for all your help.
Did you dl FixVTS, if so you must extract it to a folder and then browse to the folder and make sure it points to the FixVTS.exe.
I directed RipIt4Me to C:/Temporary/FixVTS and it went right through then.
You should install it according to the guide if you want everything to work properly.
I guess I must've missed a step somewhere. I shall read the guide once again but just in case can someone please indicate how to install this file. I am sorry but I am quite confused.
Download the FixVTS from the link on the bottom of the Guide, it is a zip file, double click and extract it to a folder of your choice. Then after that open RipIt4Me, choose Settings then Preferences and browse to the folder you extracted to set the path.
Where cannot I download this ripit4me.
Get it here and click on the green button. If that doesn't work, right click on the button and choose SAVE TARGET AS.
Thank You Guys
Gentlemen, my apologies for my ignorance. It is working beautifully now. I missed the section regarding the FixVTS completely. As soon as I downloaded the FixVTS, everything worked well. Thank you for your patience and your assistance. You guys are a very helpful group of people. Thanks.
