Default Editing a bad copy...

...or authoring a new one?
My issue is regarding a DVD (copy, not original) that skips and freezes. I was able to resolve most of the skipping problems by cleaning the disk itself of debris and smudges. What remains is still a bad copy to some extent.

My question there some way to repair what remains of this video by editing or re-authoring so that I can play it on a newly created DVD without interruption?

I believe the issue is in the .vob file(s) now. I can create them for the entire disk using DVDShrink, but upon my attempt to burn to a new DVD, the results is just another bad DVD which skips/freezes in the same place.

If I edit the movie and copy everything up to the first skip, then edit out that part and continue with what remains which doesn't skip, will I then be able to create a DVD that plays through without issue? Any idea how I can do this? Thanks in advance!

if it is a small section of the DVD and if you can manage to rip it to the HDD load it into VobBlanker find the bad sections and edit the cells where the problems are. I have taken source material where some of the material isn't suitable for some ages and have used VoBBlanker to cut the part out and then have the edited DVD files. There is a very slight pause at the cut/join points though. Use VoBblanker to set the start/end points by draging the slider of the cell, you have the option to keep or cut the bad section or you can mark the good section and cut the rest of the cell. This is easier if you have chapters/cells on the DVD.

The easiest way is to take out your original and copy that again - that is the purpose of your backup anyway.

However, we can not help in regards to DVD ripping - please see rule 19.
