    I have a DVD that looks fine but plays like a slide show & all programs like anydvd dvdshrink etc can't back it up.

    What is happening when DVD Decrypter is copying it just very slowly? So far its copied 200MB+ with 1000+ errors. Does this mean the video will be playable at all or just blackblank parts of the video where errors were?

    thanks

    You might start by saying which DVD is giving you headaches.
    Does the disc show problems when played on a standalone device?

    Programs like AnyDVD and DVDFab have to be updated constantly, because

    Its an old 2003 dvd that DVD decrypter should be able to copy, in this case anydvd can't copy it because the read errors. I was just interested in what dvd decrypter was doing? Is it actually copying the dvd fully or just the bits that can be read? And if so how will it play? It's taking hours to copy btw.

    Clean & perfect, my guess the recorded layer has deteriorated.

  6. In DVD Decrypter go to Tools -> Settings -> I/O and turn Software Read Error Retires down to 1 and enable Ignore Read Errors. On the Device tab set Hardware Read Error Retries to 1 or 2. This will increase ripping speed of damaged media by quite a lot.
