I read around in some other threads about a new kind of copy protection that started coming up during the copying procedure of many discs. It doesn’t have an official name yet, but it is referred to as the “ring” protection, based on the fact that the dvd disc has a locked “ring” layer which scrambles up burning,decrypting and copying software because it can’t be read by the dvd drive. I have been dealing with the same issue lately in many dvd discs i’ve been trying to copy. The thing is that i was getting more and more CRC Errors with the newest dvd movies and i thought it was my dvd recorder’s fault, so I went and bought a new one. But it was until yesterday that i read about the “ring” protection system. I am using the LG-GSA4163B Dvd recorder, with AnyDVD v.22.214.171.124, CloneDVD2, Nero Burning Rom 126.96.36.199 and DVD Shrink 3.2 software to copy two different movies, “P.S.- I Love You” and “Maria Full Of Grace”. These are new movies that just came out in DVD Format. With all the software i mentioned above, I’ve been getting a CRC ERROR around the 63% of the read-image creation procedure of the movie. I also tried to do the whole thing in my other recorder a Pioneer DVR106 but the results were the same. So my question is this: I read everything related to the new copy protection which is mainly about the “locked” chapter 1 which contains the unreadable ring, and it’s supposed to be at the beginning of the movie, so why do i get the error at 63%? I also read that AnyDvd bypasses this error, but although i have the latest version (188.8.131.52.) it doesn’t work. I had this problem with many other movies, which i tried to copy lately and I can’t locate the source of the problem. I would appreciate some info and suggestions on this topic please, if anyone has been dealing with the same problems!
Thanks a lot in advance!!
