Recently on two DVDs that i have ripped using DVD Shrink and DVD Decryptor have brought up error messages. The message is ‘Can’t connect to hardware access layer (Patin-Couffin or ASPI)’. What is the reason for this error? Does it have to do with the rip, the software, or the DVD? Any help would be greatly appreciated. If it matter I have burned a DVD with this same ripper+burner configuration. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can also be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or AIM at hornetftbl51.
