I have reinstalled my new copy of CloneDVD2. I had a previous version and the key transferred, but I have a new problem.
The first disc I tried with the new version gave me a CRC Error. (LotR - FotR) I tried a second disc, it too gave me the same errror. (LotR - tTT). I tried again and got three more discs. Live free or Die Hard, the Bourne Ultimatum, and Pirates of the Carribean aWE. All three came up with the same error at various stages of the rip. On some of them I could hit the retry button and it would reacquire and start to rip again but not for long. The CRC errors won out. The first two LotR discs were not in too bad a shape but did have scratches. I cleaned all of them very well. The Pirates was in great shape, the Die Hard was in great shape, and the Bourne disc had just been unpacked and had yet to see a player. It was pristine. The Bourne disc I was able to nudge along and get it finally to 89% before it refuted me FTW.
I have never had these errors before and I have seen some pretty crappy discs. I never really had a problem before now. I flashed my drive back in the spring with DW-D22A-BYS2b. (BYS2.bin) I had used it plenty after the flash and no problems with CloneDVD (1). I am splitting them between two discs so I can get 100% quality.
I tried the discs in my laptop and had no problems except with the Pirates disc. My laptop wouldn’t read it either. The others, straight on through. I have CloneDVD2 and anyDVD on both systems under WinXP. My laptop is a ROM and not a burner.
My big system is a Sony Vaio RB VGC-RB30. Pentium ® 4 CPU 3.00 GHz, 0.99 GB RAM. The drive is a Sony DVD RW DRU-720. (flashed back to DRU-710A) AnyDVD 126.96.36.199 (lic), and Elby CloneDVD2 188.8.131.52 (lic) updated from their website yesterday.
I have removed the drive and cleaned it out and cleaned the lens with alcohol. The drive looks brand new now.
This is pissing me off!!
…sorry, little rant there.
Thanks to anyone in advance.
