Right. This error usually means what it says - a read error.
Usually, because it could also be:
1.) DVD Drive dropping authentication for unknown reason. Never seen this, but from reports here this might happen with the Pioneer 120S. (Although the error could be different, e.g. “wrong startblock”)
2.) Some other AnyDVD weirdness, e.g. drive reported wrong capacity of disc, CloneDVD tries to read beyond the capacity AnyDVD expects, AnyDVD chokes, CloneDVD reports error. (This could also be the problem with the Pioneer 120S. Dunno, as I don’t have the Pioneer 120S)
As there wasn’t any Pioneer 120S (or Plextor DVD-Rom, how is it called? PX-116? Seems to have a similar problem) involved, I assume the disc is broken.
Try to drag the VIDEO_TS folder to the desktop, I assume Explorer will report a read error as well.
