.... for future reference ....
Playing - Doesn't matter
.... as Compared to Ripping
Playing and 'Ripping' are two - Very different things
Your DVD Player may be able to just 'skip' through the errors
The "Ripping" process is much more precise - "exactly" precise ;
and Your DVD-ROM/Burner cannot just 'skip' over them .....
Playing = Dumping a load of rocks off a truck
Ripping = Landing a plane at night.
There doesn't necessarily need to be any visible damage
The Disc may appear to be visually perfect .
- and as that applies -
It simply appears
- that one of your players is just more 'forgiving' than the others
I have one Player that is way overly 'picky'
Discs that won't play in it - Play fine in my others
This 'picky' player is definitely heading for the bin
this might save you some future headaches
If you suspect that you might have a 'Bad Disc"
Inspect the Disc and try cleaning it
- even if it doesn't look like it needs it.
If this doesn't prove successful ...
Use the VSOInspector to scan the Disc ( it's Free )
Scan with BOTH "Surface Scan" and "File Test"
If the Inspector reports "READ Errors"
Then you'll know that you've come across a "BAD" Source Disc .
I would then suggest that you
- As you did - acquire a different copy
... and compare your results .
1 Click Can't Read my DVD Movie
// READ Errors // Skipping Bad Sectors in Log
If VSOInspector is reading a problem
- Then there is usually a problem with the Disc
- or a problem with the Drive
- and that is why it is failing to be 'read'
( - or in this case : failing to back-up properly )
Did you Figure out how to use DVDFree ?
