Big Problem & I'm At A Loss. NEED HELP

Postby TwilightChrono » Fri May 20, 2011 10:07 pm

Well, the problem is with DVD Decryptor. I"m trying to rip some of my DVD's. Not newer ones mind you. But the same ones I've been ripping with it for ages. But for some reason, DVD Decryptor doesn't want to rip them anymroe for some reason. And I don't understand why this is the case.

DVD's that it used to rip with no problem are now giving me problems. Like, it won't be able to find the encryption key, or it can't parse, or it will find everythign fine, but then an error will happen at about the 31% mark and when trying to restart the rip aftre, DVD Decryptor refuses to work after the initial fail.

So, there it is. My problem in a nutshell.

Can someone please assist me with this problem. The completion of Heaven's Faith 2 is imperative and relies solely on fixing this problem. I want to finish...................TIRED OF LOOKING AT THIS DAMN TIMELINE!!!!!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't.....mmaa...mask anymore frames........must finish........have to.....*Spasm* *twitch* Must finish before I lose my m.....mi...mind!

Help?

Have you tried DVD Fab 8? I've yet to find a DVD that it can't rip.

Ignore the guy above and give some actual error information. DVD Fab is a terrible idea and it should only ever be used as a last resort. Nobody can help you without more information though, actual error messages plz2have.

What's wrong with DVD Fab Decrypter? As I understand and have been told in the past, it's just as applicable to rip DVDs with.

The name is just DVD Fab, and the main reason it's not so good is that it has a tendency to break internal structure when you extract by PGS. When possible, DVD Decrypter is always a better choice. Also and not so importantly, the DVD Fab interface has terrible usability, is slow, and breaks under wine.

I stated in my OP what the error messages are and what it is doing. Please read. And it actually doesn't give pop up error messages. This is just the problems I've come across everytime I use it now.

I would like some decent help instead of Bickering.

AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

I WANT MY GODIX BACK!!

Can i get some help from some actually professionals on the subject?

Phatasmagoriat, CodeZTM, Pwolf, GODIX, Hagaren Viper. SOMEONE For crying out loud.

Mister Hatt is about as professional as it can get, actually.
Anyway, I fear the issue might be hardware side... does it have issues when you're just trying to play the DVD too or is the issue exclusive to the actual ripping?

The DVDs play just fine on my DVD player AND on my computer. I only encounter the problem while trying to rip.

And the thing is. Since I've seen these anime so many times, I really dont watch them anymore. I use them exclusively for editign and ripping from. And on inspection of the discs there were no scratches or smudges or fingerprints.

So, I honestly don't know what the problem is. It used to rip these very same DVD's just fine.

I forget the actual setting but there are various modes for ripping in DVD Decrypter. Try fiddling around with them and see if something works. I know on my system at least I needed to change the way it connects to the disc (atapi vs everything else.) Might not be the cause of your problem but then again, it could be. You said there was no error message but there always will be unless you have a hardware problem. It should be in the log window.

The only thing is says in the log is during the rip. When something goes wrong in the rip all it says is:

Finding Decryption Key

Followed by a set of numbers. And then it just sits there and retries after retries until i eventually just close it. I sat there and let it go through 10 retries before I stopped it. And it got stuck at 31% And it gets stuck at 31% On every disc. Not just one.

So, i'm not sure what the problem is. It never used to do this, and these are the same discs I've been ripping forever, and no, there are no scratches on my discs that could be causing this.

I just really want this resolved.

Does MakeMKV work? While I know that you don't want to try other software and just what to get DVD Decrypter to work again, I think that this info would give us more ground to speculate. If it works, there's something wrong with DVD Decrypter, if it fails, I'd be more keen to say that the DVD reader in your pc has some issue of sort when ripping.

I also think it's a hardware issue. Either the reader is playing up on it or the disc itself has some hurfed sectors or something.

Doubt it's the discs (for the reasons TC explained in his posts), but really have a fear something's happened to the reader even though it works just fine when playing the dvds...

MakeMKV does work. It ripped them just fine. So that means that it is somethign with the DVD Decryptor. Though, with MAKEMKV it couldnt read the first disc of Higurashi but read the rest of the discs just fine. Even did extracting, and worked fine. Except for disc 1.

But, I would like a program that would rip my DVD's straight into .vobs, and not another format in which I have to use another 3rd party program to convert to .vobs from MKV. too much of a hassle and takes up WAY too much space. Space I don't have.

That's it in a nutshell. If you know of any other programs that can rip straight from DVD to vob let me know. Ones that don't require me to pay. Super(C) is alright for conversion from alternate video files but as stated it requires a video to be input and it converts it from another video format which I don't want.

So more than likely I would like something along the lines of DVD Decryptor. As I would like to start editing again but can't because of this problem.

I would recommend DVDFab, but use the full disc option. When ripping DVDs, make sure it's set to DVD9 as well and not DVD5.
