Most of the people I know who backup their DVD's use different methods to do so, which is why I think its important for me to write my method of backup. First of all, let me just say that AnyDVD has NEVER let me down. If AnyDVD does ever get stuck than I simply update it and everything goes back to normal. THANKYOU SLYSOFT! I have two methods of Backing up DVD's, one method is for older versions which don't use fancy protection such as Arccos and for newer titles I use AnyDVD. I will list both methods: Methods for backup of older titles: 1. Using DVD Decrypter, I make an Image pf the DVD. 2. Using DVDShrink I click on File>Open Disc Image 3. I select the Audio tracks and Subpictures I want and delete the unnecessary ones. 4. I click on the "Backup" button and save it as an ISO File. 5. Using DVD Decrypter I burn the image onto a single-layer DVD-R. Method used for backup of newer titles: 1. Using AnyDVD Ripper, I rip the DVD 2. Using DVDShrink I click on the "Open Files" button 3. I select the Audio tracks and Subpictures I want and delete the unnecessary ones. 4. I click on the "Backup" button and save it as an ISO File. 5. Using DVD Decrypter I burn the image onto a single-layer DVD-R. I have been trying to backup "Employee of the Month" and "Beerfest". Now the problem that I am facing is that when opening the files by clicking on the "open files button" , after ripping the DVD using AnyDVD Ripper, DVDShrink keeps giving me the following error Following are my computer specs: Pentium D 2.8Ghz 1GB Corsair Nvidia GeForce 6800 WD Raptor Array (Boot) 2 500GB Drives for storage I have used the above methods to backup many DVD's without encountering any problems. DVDShrink works fine with other images but gets stuck on this one and a few more namely "Beerfest". Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanx in advance!
