[QUOTE=spad;2538029]Recently, I purchased the movie “Dreamchild” on DVD from Amazon. On the back of the cover at the very bottom of the insert, this is printed:
“This disk is expected to play back in DVD Video ‘play only’ devices, and may not play in other DVD devices, including recorders and PC drives.”
Because this disk is rare–the title has never had an official DVD release, the manufacturer prints them only as they’re ordered–I would like to backup my one and only copy before it gets wrecked.
My Windows 7 PC doesn’t play, nor does it recognize the disk. VLC doesn’t either. BDDecrypter and ISOBuster reads the disk as blank. A Ray Scanner detects DVDCrypt CSS/CPPM and at least acknowledges there’s data on the disk.
The DVD plays fine on my Phillips standalone player, however.
So, the question, of course, is: Is there a way to duplicate this disk or not?[/QUOTE]
I forgot to follow up on this topic. The Dreamchild DVD prohibits copying through my standalone player’s composite line out. All I get on my camcorder is a blue screen saying as much. As of yet, there is no way to duplicate this disk.
