Tried to backup with DVD Shrink and also a no go. Anyone have any suggestions?

Please try AnyDVD with CloneDVD2.

Possibly a bad source disk. As Alex suggested, You should try AnyDVD & CloneDVD (free trial from just to be sure.

No strange protection on this disc. Just a bad/scratched/dirty disc.

since sony arccos uses dummy sectors i must disagree on that one :smiley:

anyway i recommend this combo dvdfab decrypter+dvd shrink

CloneDVD worked. Thanks!

And I must disagree with your disagreement.

“Never Say Never Again” has been out since the late 90’s. There is no Arccos on it, never was, and never will be. It’s an MGM/Universal release, anyway, with nothing on it but CSS.

Maybe it is a re-release of a re-release with Arccos? AFAIR it wasn’t MGM/Universal but MGM/United Artists (do they still exist?). MGM was bought by Sony a while ago…
“Never say never…” :wink:

Regarding the physical condition of the DVD, it’s in perfect condition, without any scratches. The DVD release, from MGM Home Entertainment (MGM/UA), was on Oct. 17,2000.

At least we know now that it isn’t Arccos protected.

Yes, MGM/UA. But at any rate, there’s no arccos on it. LOL!
