Scrambled source DVD?

I recently backed up my copy of Click, and when I tried to play the source disk, it would randomly return to the main menu, and sometimes when you tried to play the movie, the screen would go blank, and my dvd played would read "no disk". My copy of Fun with Dick and Jane also exhibited this behavior. I've been backing up my dvd's for a couple years, and this has never happened. Is there a new type of copy protection that scrambles the source disk? Thanks in advance for any helpful information.

You need to add info as to what software you used to rip and burn the disc.

Re: Scrambled source DVD?

I ripped the VOB files to my HDD using the newest version of DVDfab decrypter, encoded the files to an ISO image using dvd shrink 3.2, and finally burned the image to DVD using Nero 6. I'm not having issues with the backup...it's the original source disk. When I try to play it in a home DVD player, it takes a dump. You try to play the movie from the main menu, the screen goes blank, and the DVD player reads "no disk". I've tried it in another DVD player, and it represents the same behavior. I thought a new type of copy protection might have came out that scrambled the original disk when it's ripped with a DVD-RW drive. Like it messes with the dyes on the disk or something. I'm sorta confused at the moment

Re: Scrambled source DVD?

Your original cannot tell the difference between being played or read or ripped so the problems in the original have to do with protection errors, hardware in the player, or defects.

I often find my back ups play better than the originals as I dump all the extraneous garbage. The only way to find out is to play the original on a variety of players and if it is defective, return it.

Alright, I test it on a few more players and see if that solves the problem. Thanks a lot!

Sounds to me like you need to clean the laser on your player and or replace the player. There is no way that copying a dvd can cause any problems with the original dvd.
