I’ve recently discovered that the DVD-Video DVDRs I’ve been burning have had incorrect bytes written to the DVD (bad IDE cable, check out http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=155152 )
The result of this, I have a NEW problem.
I’ve been burning DVD-Video of my old VHS tapes.
I’ve burnt two copies of each DVD I’ve created.
I know that both copies of the DVD-Video will have a number of errors in the bytes written, on scanning some DATA DVDs written, it’s about 50 errors / 2 gigs of data.
It will be unlikely that the errors on each disk will be at the same locations.
I’m looking for a program that can scan an mpeg2 video file, and point out which frames are invalid mpeg2. That way, scanning both copies of the video, I’ll be able to re-create the original correct mpeg2 video.
I’ll most likely do this with some 5 minute program I whip up, unless there are already available programs.
I’d imagine that the errors will only produce tiny unseen glitches, but these are my childhood VHS tapes and I would like them to be as perfect as possible.
