I tried out 1.24 to do some cleaning up after PGCEdit. FixVTS said it was done. But there were a couple of strange things. When I told it to Delete Backup, I noticed that the backup folder was still there with lots of big files in it. I then tried to burn the disk with Nero and got: "DVD-Video files reallocation failed. The resulting DVD-Video might be unplayable. Do you want to continue?"

The files did not have that problem with Nero prior to using FixVTS. I suspect that there may be issues related to full hard drives. The program never told me that I was out of space, but I ended up suspiciously close to full when it said it was done. I was down to a few MB. Or this may just be coincidence. Has the issue of sufficient disk space been looked at yet?

Hagrinas, usually the Nero warning is issued any time you have a 0-byte file in your DVD, even though this isn't a problem and is completely legit, Nero still complains about it. You can safely ignore the warning and burn your output with no problem. The backup not being cleaned up is a known issue, but has no consequence on the output. The lack of space on your hard disk does not seem to be an issue here, or FixVTS or other programs would have complained/crashed...

It also issues this warning if it finds that a .VOB is not properly associated with an .IFO. This seems to occur most often when "Easter Eggs" are on a DVD. In any event, as already stated by "jeanl",You can safely ignore the warning and burn your output with no problem.[/Quote]

You can burn, but, of course, be sure to not include the backup folder and files. It is better to remove them manually before burning with Nero. (Or use PgcEdit to burn! )

NERO won't allow inclusion of any backup folder in its RED "VIDEO_TS" folder...

Yes, but it has many problems (at least in v6) whan it finds several versions of the IFO files in the hierarchy! It's a known bug of Nero.

in the latest version of fixvts (1.24)

thanks

Well, it creates a backup directory only if you didn't select "in-place".

Great piece of software - has really come in handy One question: Any idea why FixVTS does not fix the output of AVS Smart Converter to work with Shrink DVD?

Hi!

According to the website of "AVS Smart Converter"
( http://www.avsmedia.com/VideoConvert.../overview.aspx ) , "AVS Smart Converter is a wizard-styled application and a powerful tool, which allows the user to convert DVDs or video files and save them in MPEG-4 format". Please correct me if I'm wrong but, it doesn't appear to be capable of creating compliant DVD format(s).

MPEG-4 is a format that neither DVD Shrink nor FixVTS process - They both ONLY deal with compliant DVD format...

I'm curious, what happens when you try to open the files with FixVTS?

Hi, I've a little problem with a menu.
Menu is large 610MB but 11 cells (33MB x 11 =360MB) are not never access by navigation. These cells are crap.
The only method in order to remove these cells is one-by-one with VobBlanker or PGCEdit.
FixVts can't delete these cells.

Bye

fixvts only removes cells that are unreferened in the ifo.
if they are reference than fixvts does not touch them.
if you cells in the menu. you can use menushrink.

If the cells are never played because they are in another LU than the default one, you can remove the LUs with PgcEdit, and then use FixVTS to strip the VOB cells.

hadda post. i d/l'ed fixvts beta 1.24 yesterday. always impressed with something so small that can do so much. i've had "dawn of the dead" on my hd for a loooong time and had resigned myself to the fact that there it would sit until i got some dvd-r dl's. i tried my entire arsenal of software to compress it and long since gave up. i dragged the uncooperative vob into the fixvts window and five or ten minutes later, i was compressing with dvd shrink. later that night, i popped some corn and watched my favorite of the holy trilogy. thx so much, for a great prog.

Did I read correctly somewhere, that FixVTS is now incorporated in AnyDVD?

Yes you did. One of the authors (or the author) of AnyDVD incorporated FixVTS into AnyDVD-ripper. That tool is free, even if you only have the trial version of AnyDVD (I insisted that it should be free, since they grabbed the code without my consent). The main advantage is that FixVTS runs while you rip, thereby saving quite a bit of time. I"m not sure, however, how good a ripping job anydvd-ripper does... I'm wondering whether it messes some things up as it rips... But I must say I have not tried it yet (they did give me a key though)...
