DVD Read Error - AOPEN DUW1616/ARR 1000

I’m using an AOPEN DUW1616/ARR1000 dvd drive which to date I’ve been very happy with. I just purchased Roger Hodgson’s “Take The Long Way Home”. The AOPEN drive can’t read the disk and seems to spin endlessly. I ran Nero CD/DVD Speed to test the drive and disk. The Benchmark test takes a long time to run and then seems to fail “Error - Unrecovered Read Error (031100)”. The failure seems to occur at the layer break, i.e., 3.88 GB. Scan disk shows bad sectors half way through too. My Sony DVD player (DVP-NS55P)seems to have a problem with the transition too while my Daytek 950T doesn’t. Is this problem more likely a bad disk or a problem with the AOPEN drive? I’'m thinking a bad disk but I’ve never had that problem before with commercial disks… Appreciate any thoughts…

I have had a few commercial disc that had the same issue, so if it reads other commercial discs fine it would be my guess that it is the disc.:slight_smile:
