This is the third time that I’m posting v3 READ Issues with DVD-Video DVD Discs that v22.214.171.124 READ and Burned without a problem. This is 7 Movies now in a couple of weeks, and, there is nothing wrong with the Discs themselves that had v3 READ problems.
Today there was a “new” wrinkle on the READ problem with v3. On “An American Haunting” Unrated Region 1, a v3 Split “barfed” with a READ ERROR popup on VTS_23_1.VOB. Clicking on Retry, Ignore, Ignore All or Abort didn’t help and wouldn’t terminate the READ…I had to manually eject the Disc.
The other “new” thing was numerous CDROM Error 7’s in the Event Log, which is a “bad block” error. In my case, it’s almost never a bad block, and, almost always an encryption problem.
Humm…So, I tried v126.96.36.199, and it copied and burned flawlessly, and without Event Log Errors. Turns out, it didn’t attempt to copy the VTS_23 and VTS_24 TitleSets which are missing from the Split Set.
OK, I can accept an occasional encryption problem, and I can forward the original .ifo files for this Movie if anyone wants them, but the obvious question is, “How does a Program released on August 3, 2006 (v188.8.131.52) know how to handle the encryption on a Movie Released this week, when the version of the Program released today (v184.108.40.206) doesn’t know how to handle the encryption?” Can anybody answer me that?
To exacerbate the v3 Problem, on a Split I couldn’t “unselect” the offending TitleSets as the Program complained when I tried to, and, on a Custom Selection, I couldn’t Split. It had to fit or compress, or, burn to a DVD9.
Naturally, I’m very happy to still have v220.127.116.11, though it’s not a “forever” work-a-round…And, I admit to having a little difficulty in understanding how any v2 encryption work-a-rounds could have been left out of v3, unless, maybe, there are different Authors.
