When I am playing DVD movies on my Sony Z1 laptop I now get ‘Data error (cyclic redundancy check)’ messages on all my DVD disks. Never happened with this machine for over 3 years. Fast running Centrino with 1 gig ram. Using it for professional audio recording.
I have searched the web but websites I have found say that these errors are disk or software related. Well, all my disks are clean, so which software is faulty? I am using Media Player, WinDVD and PowerDVD. All official versions. I also use DVD Shrink with the same errors. No DVD in my collection can be played without these errors.
Can it be the DVD-player in my Sony Z1? Didn’t found this info on the net. Can it be Windows, do I need to do a reinstall? That would take a lot of time for me…
Please help. I just don’t want to buy just another DVD-player when it’s just Windows who’s causing these errors for example.
