    Q: Why does DVDFab always fail at a certain percentage when trying to backup INSERT TITLE, the disc plays fine in my dvd player.
    A: DVD drives are more picky when reading a disc. Your dvd drive is trying to read all the data, where as a DVD player will easily skip over an unreadable section. Please read Tips on troubleshooting analyzing/ripping dvds.

    Q: Why does DVDFab create an empty AUDIO_TS folder?
    A: The AUDIO_TS folder isn’t needed on Video dvd's but some really old dvd players require one to be present.

    A: When using the DVD to DVD modes the sound is not altered. DVDFab will not alter the audio even when applying compression.
