DVD data and video decrypting


-What does this mean, and why is this service important to me?


DVD discs can be burned in two ways: As data, and as Video. (there are other formats, but they really rare)


If a disc is burned as data, the files and videos on it are viewable and copiable on computers. But VideoDVD is way different. The video data on this disc is in the VIDEO_TS folder. There are several file types in it, such as .IFO .BUP or .VOB, they contain the DVD menu, languages and other extras. If you copy all of them on computer, you will not be able to play the main title. The only way to get a DVD in one video file is the decrypting, with the chosen audio track. After decryption you can copy the video anywhere you want. Unfortunately, without skills and experiences this is not an easy process at home.

Another reason of decrypting is the lifetime of the plastic DVD discs. An average DVD last for maximum 10 years. If you copy your discs in every 5 years you data will last long, but you have to take care of them in 5 years again and again. The only way to store your data in secure is the double storage on computer, or hard drive.

At Memorescue we decrypt dozens of discs every month. Most of them readable easily, a few need some tricks to get data from them, and some is totally unreadable. In the past 5 years we came up with a few methods in getting data back from DVDs so, our success rate is over 90 percent.

If the video saving is successful, the video we give you back, will have the exact same MPEG properties as the original, we won`t recode the video material.


-Can you get back audio files from CD discs?

Yes, and to multiple audio formats: You can choose from the original 44.1/16 Wav, 320kbit mp3, or Flac too. Every track become a single audio file.

Your saved video or audio files can be taken on external medias.
