DVD Decrypter, probably the most popular DVD ripper in the world, has been updated to a new version. New version, DVD Decrypter v3.2.3.0 has once again rather massive changelog since the previous version. Here's the changelog in full:
  • Added: Option to save the log on exit
  • Added: Additional debug code to IFO mode that shows 'skipping' of unwanted cells
  • Added: A log entry for the 'L0 Data zone Capacity' when burning DVD+R DL discs
  • Added: A new option to the 'ISO Write' page in the settings - 'Cycle Tray Before Verify'
  • Added: Crash recovery for 'Checking for RCE Protection' code - so corrupt IFO files shouldn't mean the disc can't be copied - as all other IFO parsing can be avoided if required
  • Added: ISO Read / Write modes now display the % done of a background format on drives that support it. It will say 'Formatted: No (In Progress) (X% Complete)'. You have to perform a 'refresh' to make it update
  • Added: 'F8' now enables/disables I/O Debug Mode
  • Added: 'F9' to minimise the program to the system tray
  • Added: 'F12' to load up another instance of the program
  • Added: 'Browse' to the file menu for people who demand keyboard shortcuts!
  • Added: 'Exit' to the context menu on the system tray icon
  • Added: 'Firmware Updates...' to the drive context menu - links to's web search engine
  • Added: 'Source Media Type' (i.e. DVD-R, DVD+R) to the log in IFO/File/ISO Read modes. It also displays Disc ID (i.e. RITEKG04) where possible
  • Added: Support for enabling 'SpeedRead DVD' on the Plextor PX-712A. This disables 2x locked reading on CSS media (not permanent)
  • Added: Support for another I/O Interface (Patin-Couffin)
  • Added: Support for just dragging a 'supported' image file onto the application icon and it automatically going into ISO Write mode
  • Added: Support for CLI error codes when in ISO Write mode - (1 = No media (Write couldn't start), 2 = Write failed, 3 = Verify failed)
  • Added: Support for '/SPEED ' CLI command
  • Added: Support for disabling 'Media Change Notification' under all I/O Interfaces. (Still need to be running Windows 2000, XP or 2003 though)
  • Added: Support for creation of 'Chapter Information - LBA' files in IFO mode
  • Added: Support for creation of 'Chapter Information - DVDLab' files in IFO mode
  • Added: Support for exclusive drive locking under ElbyCDIO in ISO Write mode
  • Added: Support for handling of corrupt IFO files. PGCs that don't really exist are now displayed as 'corrupt' in IFO mode
  • Changed: Changed CLI command /VERIFY to /VERIFY
  • Changed: Detection of 'end of disc' in ISO Read mode during the actual read phase. Implemented support for an additional error message
  • Changed: Detection of drive capabilities to work with drive that don't error out on a certain command but instead return blank information. This would previously have meant the drive would come up as 'Unknown' during initial drive scan
  • Changed: The order of a couple of commands in ISO Write mode. Aborting a failed 'exclusive lock failed' command would have left the disc in the 'Incomplete' state (i.e. non burnable) until you ejected / reinserted it
  • Changed: The volume is now dismounted and locked when it's locked in exclusive mode
  • Changed: The duration of exclusive locking. It now locks during verify too
  • Changed: Unsupported files in ISO Write mode now display more information as to why they're not supported
  • Changed: The method of finding out the current type of disc - so it may change the information in ISO Read / Write modes for burnt discs. (Bits may have been missed out in previous versions)
  • Changed: 'RCE Protection Found' dialog box to include ALL region. The program now also greys out options that aren't applicable - i.e. if the media isn't region 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8
  • Changed: File mode logging when 'Detect Mastering Errors' is enabled. It now shows the correct LBA for the disc instead of for the file. (Keep things standard throughout the program)
  • Fixed: A problem using Device ID strings for the source / destination via CLI
  • Fixed: A problem with the DoItFast4U CLI switch whereby the CC (closed caption) data was copied over before it was decrypted
  • Fixed: A problem with possible oversized WAV files
  • Fixed: A problem with renaming of files and not checking the free disk space properly
  • Fixed: A problem with blank discs not coming up as 'Disc Is Empty' in the 'Read' modes
  • Fixed: A problem with 'Shutdown after write' on Windows 9x machines
  • Fixed: 'Failed To Set Write Parameters' error on Panasonic DVDRAM burners
  • Fixed: A problem with NSIS installer on Windows NT 4
  • Fixed: A problem where aborting a read in ISO mode could give you a 'pack header not found' warning in the log
  • Fixed: A problem with some corrupt IFO files causing access violation errors
  • Fixed: A problem where files with names < 12 characters in length wouldn't line up in the File mode file listing box
  • Fixed: A problem where ISO Read mode would hang if files other than IFO/BUP/VOB's were in the VIDEO_TS folder
  • Fixed: A problem where all files in the VIDEO_TS folder (other than VOBs) would get processed by IFO/BUP patching code in File mode

Cool! The new Firmware search link should come in handy. That alone should solve many people's issues.
