need VTS_01_4.VOB for America In Concert - Live in Sydney (2004)
I own a copy of "America In Concert - Live in Sydney (2004)" on DVD (standard DVD). It's a great concert.
The disc will not play in my Blu-Ray player or on the DVD reader of 3 different laptops. There is no evidence of physical damage (scratches) on the disc. I did try circular polishing with toothpaste, but it still won't play. So I have spent several days trying to do some recovery. I have been able to pull off all of the /VIDEO_TS files to my computer, but one file will not copy - it gets an error halfway through. I tried 3 different computers. This is NOT an issue of encryption/decryption, which I can deal with. Just to emphasize, it won't play on my Blu-Ray player, which of course, won't have any encryption issue.
The main concert consists of 5 VOB files:
VTS_01_1.VOB - ok
VTS_01_2.VOB - ok
VTS_01_3.VOB - ok
VTS_01_4.VOB - damaged in the middle - this is the file I need
VTS_01_5.VOB - ok
The original file is 1,073,709,056 bytes (~1GB). I have recovered the first 471,511,040 bytes (by copying until error), and the last 467,488,768 bytes (with a program I wrote to back up from the end of the file as far as I can without error and then copy from there to the end). However, I can not get the middle 134,709,248 bytes.
If you have this DVD and you can provide me with the VTS_01_4.VOB file, I would be very grateful. I have a place for you to upload it. Once I find a potential donor, we can discuss the details offline.
Note that I have used handbrake to render the 4 good VOB files, and the 2 recovered halves of the broken VOB file separately, to create 6 MP4 files. Then I used ffmpeg to concatenate them into a single MP4 file. It's the best I can do, but I'm unhappy that I'm missing the middle ~2:40 of Sandman.
