I have several dvd's now that burn a few shows which I have watched before adding to the dvd. Then the disk will fail and there is usually a patch of darker dye==looks like a spot or skid marks and is usually quite small.
I assume this is a spot of bad dye that I would think only affects the area of the recording which is NOT the Table of Contents so I don't know why the disk doesn't play up to the bad sector and then freeze? Some other disks do this but typically I can't detect any bad spots with the naked eye.
I have tried ISO Buster, Copy it Anyway, Virutal Dub, Tmpgenc, and other programs to copy the good sectors of the disk to the harddrive and I haven't found a method to do this?
Could I put the disk on a lathe and take the disk down to a 3 ince diameter to save it or is there some other less physical approach? (Smile!)==thanks.
