I use AnyDVD running in the background to remove CSS etc and use DVD2one (1.50) to copy/compress the dvd to the harddrive which i can then burn onto a dvd.
I noticed that on the copies I did that on occasion (but on every dvd i have done that i have watched so far) some blocks would appear at random times. Fairly large blocks of colour and in a group - a bit like a corrupted JPG. Not really enough to be too big an issue but still it is there and i am a bit of a perfectionist
I though it could be the media I was writing to but when i checked the copy on the PC it also had the same problem. The disks i copied from seem clean and scratch-less so i am guessing it is the hardware having a problem.
Equipment : NEC 2500a with 1.06 Herrie firmware (19-12-2003) - been meaning to go the later version of that firmware.
So I suppose the questions are…
1 - Has anyone else experienced this?
2 - Can it be fixed?
I have heard the NEC isn’t a great reader - is this true?
p.s. did try a search but didnt really come up with anything.
