"How to deal" with How to Deal - region 1

I just got done with successfully using DVD Shrink 3.0 Beta 5 on “How to Deal” region 1. Let me tell you that this DVD is messed up! It had passed the analysis with flying colors but got abruptly stopped during mid-transcoding. I got this “nice” error with it.
  • DVD Shrink encountered an error and cannot continue.
    The error is:

    Programming error – exception occurred

    The reason is: Unknown

You know, this is my first DVD that has gotten passed the analysis but bombed during transcoding. Let me give you the breakdown on my analysis and how I fixed it good!

This is my original VIDEO_TS.IFO’s Language Menu and it shows I only have 6 VOBIds present.
Code:
Language Menu Unit 1: [English]		
  Menu 1: [Title-Menu]    (entry PGC) (Programs: 1) (Cells: 1) (uses VOB-IDs: 2)   Blank (Dummy VOB)	
  Menu 2: [entry only]                (Programs: 0) (Cells: 0)	
  Menu 3: [entry only]                (Programs: 0) (Cells: 0)	
  Menu 4: [entry only]                (Programs: 0) (Cells: 0)	
  Menu 5: [entry only]                (Programs: 1) (Cells: 1) (uses VOB-IDs: 3)   Parental Warning 	
  Menu 6: [entry only]                (Programs: 1) (Cells: 1) (uses VOB-IDs: 4)   Parental Warning	
  Menu 7: [entry only]                (Programs: 0) (Cells: 0)	
  Menu 8: [entry only]                (Programs: 2) (Cells: 2) (uses VOB-IDs: 1,2) FBI Warning & Blank  
  Menu 9: [entry only]                (Programs: 0) (Cells: 0)	
  Menu 10: [entry only]               (Programs: 0) (Cells: 0)	
  Menu 11: [entry only]               (Programs: 0) (Cells: 0)	
  Menu 12: [entry only]               (Programs: 0) (Cells: 0)	
  Menu 13: [entry only]               (Programs: 1) (Cells: 1) (uses VOB-IDs: 5)   Parental Warning	 
  Menu 14: [entry only]               (Programs: 1) (Cells: 1) (uses VOB-IDs: 6)   Blank (Dummy VOB)     
  Menu 15: [entry only]               (Programs: 0) (Cells: 0)
But in my VMGM_C_ADT (Video Manager Cell Address Table), I’m showing extra VOB IDs 7 to 10. Notice that the Number of VOB IDs is set at 10. All they are is PG movie ratings. In fact, the real PG rating being played before the movie resides in VTS_09.
Code:

I used DVD Decrypter to demux my VIDEO_TS.VOB by CELL-ID splitting and this is what I found out.

I was surprised to find out that I had some hidden VOBUs. It was because of this, DVD Shrink gave me the error.

The bad thing was I couldn’t strip out those unwanted VOBids in IfoEdit’s VOB Extras. IfoEdit wouldn't let me. You know what I did? I clicked on the HexEdit button, while in VMGM_C_ADT, and zeroed out the bytes associated with VOBid 7 to 10.

00000080 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00


I also changed the “Number of VOBs (VOB ID's) in VMGM_VOBS” to 6. Now, when I went to strip VOBids in Menu Extras, it’s working now. With all that done, I successfully transcoded my DVD.

DVD Shrink is happy and I’m happy!
