Hi, I am new here, and this is my first post, so please forgive me if this has been asked. I’ve downloaded and burned over 400 movies to DVD using ConvertXtoDVD because I like the menu options.
I have used several different brands of DVD-R’s. Lately with some of the movies I have tried to play on my TV’s DVD player, they just stop at some point and don’t advance…leaving an image on the screen. I decided to copy them to an external hard drive in the event the DVD’s are getting old and going bad.
The problem is, at least half of them are showing bad sectors to which Imgburn or DVD-Cloner 2013 attempts to skip these sectors. My question is, are these DVD’s truly going bad and are these “Bad Sectors” truly unreadable? Before attempting to copy them, I only played them once, and then kept them in a zippered DVD “book” in the sleeves. Would a different DVD drive be better at reading them? Please advise…I truly don’t feel like working with all these movies again and redoing the menus.
