Let me echo liquidfusion’s frustration.
I am having similar issue on one stamped DVD of a set purchased last year. One DVD out of the 15-disc set locks my player so tried copying files to disk and had the same experience of screen freezing. Eject does not always release the desktop, it can require a reset.
Imgburn stopped part way through copying the source and had to be Task Manager canceled.
NTI7 fared a little better. A full copy caused weird problems but individual file copies to image worked on all but two files with “Tools/Option/Copy/Ignore medium read errors on source”.
NTI terminates ‘successfully’ after imaging 1.5MB of a 450MB file and 75MB of a 480MB file. Both of these fail on an Explorer copy to disk with CRC errors.
Back on W98 I had a similar situation but the software was able to ride through CRC erros and copy most of the failing file to disk. A glitch instead of the player locking up was a good deal. The software then would have been NTI5, Gear, or Adaptec (pre-Roxio).
Has software become less capable to handle error conditions?
Does anybody know of software which can ride through an error in a file and pick up beyond the point of the CRC error?
