I'm having a problem ripping a particular dvd via LMCE (Pirates Carribean Dead Mans Chest). Presumibly this is due to the dummy sectors which cause ripping software to report an I/O error. It gets about 10% into the rip and fails. As a work-around I ripped it on my Vista PC using Ripit4me -> DVDecryptor -> DVD Shrink (just to reduce the size). This created the normal AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folders which I then copied over to the CORE. However, LMCE never saw it under Videos. So then I went to Files & Media Sync in LMCE admin and manually added the individual VOBs, IFOs, etc into the media database, using LMCE DVD as the filetype. This did allow me to see the files under Videos but they won't play. I tried playing them with Xine from the KDE desktop but I get an error saying the format is not supported or CSSDVD isn't installed. Before someone says make sure that CSSDVD is installed, it is. I can play other DVDs fine that were ripped without any problems on this MD and play DVD disks.
So I tried some of the suggestions in this thread and it still won't work. I made an ISO of the VIDEO_TS directory using mkisofs -o name_of_file.dvd directory_of_dvd/ and this didn't work either. It makes the iso file perfectly but it says that the media type is unrecognized or CSSDVD isn't installed when chosen in LMCE under videos. I can play the ripped DVD files fine on the Vista computer so I know the files are ok.
I thought that LMCE was supposed to see the VIDEO_TS directory and recognize that the files under it were part of the DVD and show it as one file, but this never worked.
Thanks for any suggestions. I am running LMCE Beta 4 by the way.
