Ripping Blade Runner with Harrison Ford voice over

Hi all. I'm new to the board and relatively new to ripping, so please bear with me! I recently purchased the Blade Runner five-disk set on DVD (the little suitcase one), and am ripping the movies to my hard drive so I can put the set itself safely away in storage. I'm running into a problem, though - I can't seem to rip the 1982 version with voiceover. The movie itself rips fine, but has no voiceover audio. I tried messing with subtitles and such, but no luck. Any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong? I'm using DVDD to rip to an iso file on my hard drive, then DVD Shrink to reauthor the main movie onto a single-layer DVD-R. (Yes, I know this sacrifices quality via compression, but, like I said, I don't really care all that much since this is just a "day-to-day" copy of the original DVD that's only purpose is to preserve the quality of my original.

I appreciate any thoughts/comments you might have.

Hi Gerry. From one newbie to another, I haven't used DVD-Shrink, but presumably it's removing 'unnecessary' audio tracks. Did you tell DVD-Shrink which audio tracks you wanted included/excluded? There should be tick-boxes, as mentioned here... http://www.doom9.org/index.html?/mpg...ink31-main.htm

That's all I've got... hopefully someone who knows what they're talking about will come along soon

I had the same problem with the Netflix disk that has the US and International Theatrical Cuts and the Director's Cut. When I use Ripit4me, the narration is on the 2nd 6 channel English audio stream, at least for the US TC.

1) Have you played your original DVD to make certain the Harrison Ford audiotrack was included?

2) Play the .ISO image file with "VLC" to make certain the Harrison Ford audiotrack was still included before using DVD Shrink...

Keep in mind that the Director's Cut doesn't have the narration.
