this is a disc burned in SLP mode on a sony, so I dont know where its getting that “bad sector protection” thing from, the VHS cassette it was dubbed from was a homemade one so there was no protection on that either, nothing I have will copy ths dvd although it plays fine, this dvd is 6 hours long also. sorry for the repost, but I cant find the edit post thing for the other one, why is my drive “emulating RPC 2 drive with region 1?” I dont recall changing a setting.
