I have tried to make backup copies of commercial DVDs. The finished copies contain only VIDEO_TS & AUDIO_TS FILES. Double clicking on the VIDEO_TS file folder, and then clicking the first available file, will invariably open the copy-DVD in Windows Media Player, and the main menu can than be accessed. However, if I load the copy-DVD into the player in the lounge, it recognises it has swallowed a DVD, but "cannot play disc'If this disc is an exact copy of the original, what bit of code has apparently been missed in the copy process to not allow it to load the Main Menu, when it is in the non-PC DVD player?
Could well be the dvd player itself, if it is an "old" they do have problems playing dvd rw, but the main clue lies in your comment that you have to double click the video-ts on your pc to make it play. I am at a loss as to why you need to use both dvd DeCrypter & dvd shrink when dvd shrink will do all that is needed. Have removed the menu whilst editing the files? try click here
