Error copying ripped dvd files using clonedvd2

Using DVDecrypter I ripped the main movie files from a dvd to my hard drive.  Hardware is a Toshiba Tecra M2 running WXP SP1.  When I tried using CloneDVD2 (mfr Slysoft) I get the error message as follows:

'Writing to Video DVD was not successful.  c:/Documents and Settings/czarflys/Desktop/temp/Video_TS.ifo:2: unable to open file

I have used this combination of programs successfully in the past to rip and burn dvd's but this is the first time that I used the 'select main movie file' option in DVDDecrypter.  Previous times I have simply selected all the files, then run CloneDVD2 and selected the main movie file option in CloneDVD2 to burn to dvd.

Does CloneDVD2 work only or more consistently if the entire file set of the original dvd has been ripped? I have seen Intervideo DVD copy program being used to successfully burn a selection of main movie files and wonder if I need to try this program as a point of comparison.

Would appreciate a reasonably quick answer, if available as I have two sets of vbo/ifo files on my hard drive and I don't really want to delete them if I can help it!

Many thanks,
czarflys

Apologies..need to look a bit harder for the answers in the future before posting a question.

No I haven't tried DVDShrink but I have downloaded it and will give it a go.  This is a really interesting area as there are a number of programs available (free/shareware/commercial) and from what I have read to date it seems that the freeware programs stack up pretty well.

For those who are interested, check out this piece on some combinations for ripping and burning:

With the exception of the situation I found myself in that prompted me to seek advice from this community, I've been quite satisfied with the DeCrypter / CloneDVD2 combo.  Would be interested though to hear from anyone who has used what I would call an all in one package (burning program that includes a built in decrypter) like DVD Cloner II.  See the review at:
http://www.dvd-copy-software-review.com/dvd-cloner-ii-review.html  Not sure if the convenience is worth US$59.95 though.
