Thank's, Jean!

Sorry for the extremely stupid question. Where is it "offset 0xC0"? I took a HEX-editor, opened a VIDEO_TS.IFO, found a 0000C0 hex-address, but this byte was always equal to zero without dependance of VIDEO_TS.VOB existence. Thank's.

Look at it using IFOEdit (much much easier!). THen click VMGM_MAT and you'll see the offsets and their values. The offset is off the top of the file, I'm surprised it was 0. Don't forget it's a int, so it's four bytes. The first byte might have been 0, but probably not the other ones...

FixVTS Version 1.5
Here's the latest release of FixVTS.
This is another tiny update...
  • If the CLI is used to tell FixVTS where to write the log, FixVTS appends to the log, rather than erasing it.
  • Increased length of navpack array to avoid crashes on some twisted DVDs.

What titles (and regions) fall into this category (I've not experienced this waith any rips on which I used FixVTS)?

IIRC, there was on title in the czech republic, that was extremely tortured when it comes to DVD structure. FixVTS was crashing due to an inordinary number of navpacks. Of course, that wasn't the only thing wrong with it. I don't remember the details though...

I did find one rip which VTSFix had problems with (perfect track record otherwise).

I ripped Memiors of a Geisha using the lastest DVDFAb Decrypter (beta 9). I still have the files on my hard drive. It plays fine from the directory, therefore the rip is working.

1) When I import this into DVD shrink, the main movie is correct, and I have 0.01mb in unreferenced materials. Shrink has problems at the beginning of the movie and the buffer keeps rising until it crashes.

2) I run VTSFix with both the first and second boxes checked -- it deletes the first 5 mintues of the movie and the player gets stuck within a few frames. The movie, however, can run through Shrink with no crashes.

3) I run VTS with only the pointer LBA option checked, and the unreferenced option unchecked. Now, the first 5 minutes of the movie show up in the "unreferenced section" (it is about 130 mb). When I play the movie, it starts 5 minutes into it ignoring the unreferenced portion.

4) I run VTS with neither checkbox on -- now the whole movie shows up in the "unreferenced" section in Shrink. It plays perfectly well, but Shrink still has the buffer problem at the beginning of the movie.

Just food for thought....

I'd start again with RipIt4Me. This sounds more like a DVD Fab Decrypter issue than a FixVTS one.

Sumster, your experiment is quite interesting. Was that a R1 disc? I should try and reproduce what you saw.
If FixVTS behaved the way it should the results should be:
Experiment 2) The player should run normally, and Shrink should be OK too. this isn't what you get
Experiment 3) The player should play normally, Shrink should show a lot of unreference material. this is what you get
Experiment 4) The player should play normally, Shrink may not be able to open/process the rip. This is what you get

So the only thing that's incorrect is the fact that experiment 2) does not play well in your player. Does it play normally in a software player? The symptoms make me think it's a "get vts sector" problem (where the sectors pointers in the IFOs are screwed up). If you still have the files, you could run FixVTS as in experiment 2), the open and save in PGCEdit. Then burn and test...
If that works, then I know that FixVTS failed to fix something in the IFOs. Just in case, make copies of the IFOs before and after PGCEdit....

I found interesting thing.
By correcting(reducing) cell adress of VTST_PGCITI (or VTSM_PGCI_UT), the parts become to unrefferenced materials when reading in DVDShrink.

And DVDFabDecrypter has the feature that has mismach between VTST_PGCITI(VTSM_PGCI_UT) and VTS_C_ADT(VTSM_C_ADT).

Is there anything references?

Yes jinjin_jp. Shrink is smart enough to detect that only a portion of a cell is referenced, and it puts the rest in unreferenced material, which is surprising because nobody knows for sure whether it's legit to have a mismatch between VTS_C_ADT and VTST_PGCITI. Also, you'll find that if you extend the pointer to go beyond the cell, the entire PGC can become unreferenced! There's no logic to that, just a quirk in Shrink...

Memoirs R1 is a Sony disc, and when I first ripped it (with RipIt4Me 1.4.3 and FixVTS 1.401) it retained 6 or 7 cells at the beginning of the movie which caused "jumping" to the end of the disc, and back & forth among these cells until finally reaching the cell which actually starts the movie. It tested OK on my Panasonic player, but interestingly actually confused my Sony S7000 player enough to cause it to turn off!!!!

I used PgcEdit to repair the thing by using its Remove Cells feature.

I don't know if latest RI4M & FixVTS work "better" than these early versions, but it's a heck of a test disc jeanl (and a good movie, but perhaps only if you've also read & liked the book).

@laserfan

If you wanna get rid of any stuff left by RipIt4Me, the easiest way is to use the remove crap function of the Mad Monk's plugin (advanced mode) and then run FixVTS (current domain).
