Okay, apparently developers have decided that a leap day is a nice day to release new major software versions :-) Agurably the best DVD ripper at the moment, DVD Decrypter, has been updated to a new version. The new version, DVD Decrypter v3.2.0.0 has a massive changelog and is definitely worth upgrading to a new version.
Here's the full changelog since the v3.1.9.0:
  • Added: Lock volume during ISO Write or Erase
  • Added: Disable Media Change Notification for currently selected drive
  • Added: 'Untested' support for Double Layer +R media burning
  • Added: Stream information in filenames for File mode Demuxing
  • Added: CSS code now checks all VOBs in VTS set if the key for a single file cannot be found
  • Added: CSS code now detects the presence of CSS in supposedly unencrypted VOBs
  • Added: Quick drive letter change on destination path - in context menu
  • Added: Command Line switch '/SHUTDOWN' for ISO Write mode
  • Added: Region mismatch dialog box now displays the drive region and the disc region to make the problem easier to see
  • Added: A lot more 'status' message to show the user what the program is doing at all times
  • Added: A workaround for NEC drives that don't have their regional code set - they don't follow the specs
  • Added: Code to put the system tray icon back in the system tray if 'explorer.exe' crashes
  • Added: '% complete' for more of the 'lengthy' operations (Synchronising Cache, Finalising Disc etc)
  • Added: 'Question' event sound to the 'File Replace' dialog box
  • Added: ISO Read mode now uses the Filesystem specified capacity for the disc capacity when reading from DVD+RW media
  • Added: ISO Read mode now silently (almost) terminates when it reaches the end of the disc before it originally thought it would
  • Added: Setting 1x for 'Set Read Speed' will put Pioneer DVDROM drives into 'Quiet' mode. 'Max' will put them into 'Performance' mode
  • Added: 'Vendor Specific' inquiry information is now shown in the device 'capabilities' page accessed via the device context menu
  • Added: Support for XBOX images that have had their ISO filesystems removed
  • Changed: CSS code has been rewritten to cope with strange happenings and should error out a lot less now
  • Changed: Stream Processing in File mode - Shows information for more streams (i.e. DTS)
  • Changed: CSS code I/O Debug mode logging to make it more useful in identifying problem
  • Changed: I/O Debug mode logging to make it more useful in identifying problem
  • Changed: VOB CSS 'Encrypted' flag is no longer removed if the program hasn't actually decrypted the file

  • Changed: ISO Write mode code to hopefully make it more stable
  • Changed: Sectors are no longer skipped in basic IFO/File modes due to 'Pack Header Not Found' errors
  • Changed: Logic behind getting the free disc space. It no longer uses the root folder but instead the one you've actually selected
  • Changed: Source device drop down list now shows 8 devices before scrolling
  • Fixed: A problem in the Image File 'Format' detection code where it could error out trying to load small images
  • Fixed: Set Read Speed - previous version always set it to 'Max' regardless of the actual setting

  • Fixed: File mode stream processing via CLI no longer includes unwanted streams in the VOB

  • Fixed: Issues with PCM information in File mode stream processing dialog

Sounds impressive ! But do you plan to add an IFO write mode ? It would be great to have a complete solution using DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter. Your burning engine is so stable that it would help saving DVD and to get rid of Mr N. best regards
