    this is my first post on this forum.I`ve used the AnyDVD/CloneDVD
    combo for several years, with no trouble at all.until now.

    I just got a DVD player capable of playing iso`s and ifo`s over network,
    and I`m now in the process of copying most of my DVD collection to my
    fileserver.when doing my Simpsons DVDs (season 1-9), I was not
    successful in making an iso of season 5/DVD1.The rest went ok.

    It got to 47% in transcoding, when a message box with a
    progress bar appears, saying the DVD structure is damaged, and
    trying to repair fails with an "Oh No!" was processing
    the file VTS_01_2.VOB when failing.

    If I copy the entire VIDEO_TS dir to hd manually (with explorer), it plays
    fine when opened as a dvd dir with VLC.I`m copying all DVDs with
    episodes only, + menus and subtitles intact.using the manually copied
    files as source in CloneDVD, the same happens.also note that I`m not
    ripping DVD`s directly to my fileserver. I fill up a disk on my work pc and
    then put it into the server.

    btw,the DVD surface is fine.

    Could FixVTS help Web?

    Anydvd ripper or Clonedvd should be able to handle this disc. Fixvts is no longer used in Anydvd.

    If this is a newer protection, Anydvd needs to be updated.

    I mean to clean the files up but yeah. AnyDVD Ripper does clean them up?

    Supposed to for full disc backups now, yes . . .
    Fixvts is no longer needed.

    I guess I can remove it from my USB flash drive then.

    Well, who knows? It may still be useful.

    Anyway, the .ifos should be posted so James can take a look at them.

    Pleas post them here, too. Much faster. If you only send them through support, it can take several days before I get them. Now it is too late anyway, is released.

    O.k., step 10 from the link does tell the reader to post in the forums as well, but next time I will specify posting in the forums.

    I tried, but the zip size limit is too low.even if i split the files into 2
    archives, the biggest archive is a few kb more than allowed.the largest
    ifo is 210944 bytes original size, and 101667 bytes zip compressed.

    Update to Anydvd and Clonedvd to see if that helps.
