  1. When I put a DVD in my PC Windows says the DVD is blank. This is an old movie that wasn't released on VHS,DVD or Bluray. Would like to restore it with Avisynth but I can't since Windows says the DVD is blank. I played the DVD in a DVD player and it plays fine. Is there a way to get the movie off the DVD?

    As an interim move use MakeMKV to put it in a MKV container. Won't re-encode or shrink size in = size out. At least you will have it on your hdd.

  3. Thanks. That worked. Never thought to use it since Windows, VideoRedo and DVD Shrink didn't see the disc.

    If that hadn't worked, ISOBuster should have been able to pull out anything that was put onto the disc.

  5. It sounds like your DVD is a DVD recorder disc that was never finalized. ISOBuster does a great job on non-finalized discs. Good to hear that MakeMKV may be able to handle them as well.
