First post so wanted to say thak you for having this great resource
Ok now that the butt kissing is done on to my problem / question.
I got a pretty black Plextor 708a roughly a month ago, and I've been incredibly happy with it. Been ripping movies and watching movies on it the whole time and not a single problem. Then the other night I went and rented "Master and Commander", "Miracle", and "Big Fish". The only movie the Plextor would read was Miracle -- it refused to open the other ones. In DVD Decrypter (the ripping software I use) it gave some sort of spindle error. All three movies worked fine in my TV's DVD player and in my friends laptop.
I'm wondering if anyone else has experinced this or has any suggestions on what might be the reason of this. I checked for scratches etc and none of the disks were badly damaged.
