While trying to backup my SAW 4 DVD last night, I experienced some weirdness. I was trying to write from the original disc to the backup disc in one step (as opposed to writing to the hard drive, and then writing from the hard drive to the backup disc manually). Since I was getting so many unrecoverable read errors, I decided to just copy the main movie.
During the reading phase, I experienced a number of errors that I successfully “retried”, and the temporary file was written successfully. During the write phase (writing to the new disc), DVDFab continued reading the original disc, and kept generating the read error dialog box that I had to keep hitting Retry on.
I tried the same thing with another disc (that did not exhibit any read errors), and once the writing phase began, DVDFab never again tried to access the original disc, and the disc copied just fine.
It seems as if DVDFab gets a little whacked out if there’s a read error in a two-disc system.
