I have a couple of completely red coloured DVDs that I cannot rip using my Mac PowerBook. I’m using DVDBackup to rip and decrypt the disc to my hard drive and the rip will start, but once it gets onto the first main movie VOB file, the drive will spin down and the rip will stop. And nothing else will happen. Also, the program will lock up.
I have two drives, an internal Apple combo drive and an external Phillips DVD+R DL drive and it happens with both drives.
The curious thing is, the disc will play from start to finish fine.
I’m not having these problems with the regular silver or gold-ish coloured discs and can rip and burn those fine which is leading me to believe that it’s something to do with these red discs.
The discs are “Little Black Book” and the latest Resident Evil incarnation. I’m using DVDBackup to rip the DVD to the hard drive and then Roxio Popcorn to compress to 4.7Gb and burn. This system works fine for everything but these 2 red coloured DVDs.
Has anyone else experienced this problem who could give me some tips? Any advice is appreciated
