[QUOTE=entropyrexor;2059371]Both DVD’s are orignials, the second one that I couldn’t rip with AnyDVD or DVDDecrypter was Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, Part 1 (Special Extended Version). All the DVD’s I’m ripping are originals. I’m ripping them and compressing them to ultimately go on my iPod (which I’m doing with no problems using Handbrake - Windows version ).
Now, AnyDVD ripped the rest of the Lord of the Rings Special Extended Versions with no problem. I forget which title it was that had the same problem.
What’s weird is that both times, it was at 50% and the same position on the disc (that VOB_TS_3 or whatever).
I’m no expert at ripping dvd’s so any insight, tips, or instructions on how to play with AnyDVD’s settings are most appreciated.
Thank You all in advance,
Download Nero DiscSpeed and with the latest AnyDVD (126.96.36.199) running in the background with the default settings enabled, run the ScanDisc feature. If it reports back as all green then it is fine. If it does not, you may have a bad disc or a bad drive.
[QUOTE=coolcolors;2059700]Have you again tried to see if those dvd will play properly in standalone? That if something is wrong or you have bad media should show up at that point. ie studdering, slow, jerky, freezing fame that would be a indication of bad pressed media. But I have to say I own all three series extended of LoTR and they play fine for me.[/QUOTE]
By playing a disc in a standalone DVD player, it will [B]not[/B] let the user know if the disc is bad or not. DVD players read the DVD differently than a DVD drive.
