Sad to say I did exactly what you did with Nero 7 and got to the exact verify issue at 53%. I aborted and popped the disc into my car and it did the software upload and then stuck on that annoying initial screen that requires you to hit “OK” to proceed. Except, the “OK” option wasn’t there so it is stuck there. And when I tried to reinstall the last version it says it’s the wrong disc, so if you don’t plan on keeping the original disc, don’t even try this. Only do it if your true intention is to only make a backup and keep your original. Everyone on here says that is their intention, but let’s be honest. Who wants to pay $195 for an update. It’s bleeping ridiculous. But I’m stuck with mine, even tho I don’t want it because it still hasn’t posted proper updates to my small town.
I have been reading this thread with interest as I have a Navteq Jaguar Europe Nav DVD that I wanted to back up.
I successfully backed it up on my old PC (Vista) easily (cant remember how, think it was just copy and paste from one dual layer dvd writer to another) before the PC crashed and I had to buy a new one which ran XP (Sp3) and came with Nero 7.
The copy was damaged shortly (removed it when car was in for warranty work) after so I had to back it up again on the new PC which has 2 DVD DL readers/writers:-
One is an Atapi (Lite On?) DVD A DH20A1P the other is an Optiarc DVD RW AD-7200S SCSI
After trying to copy using DVD Decryptor to create an IMG and then burn the IMG with Nero 7 all I got on the burned DVD was 2 files one a huge IMG file which I couldnt open and the other was an MDS file.Dont know what I was doing wrong but I am learning.
6 coasters later and I was about to give up,as a last resort I did this…
Open Nero 7 Burning ROM and select [B]DVD Copy[/B].
Under Copy options select "[B]On The Fly[/B]"
The source drive wouldnt allow ‘on the fly’ for the Atapi DVD DL reader/writer so the Optiarc was used as the source DVD.
Under Read Options I selected ‘[B]Data DVD[/B]’ and '[B]Reading with error correction[/B]'
Under ‘Burn’ I selected ‘[B]Determine Max speed[/B]’ and '[B]Write[/B]'
The disc copied no problem at 8x and was automatically set to Book Type DVD-Rom.
During the verification the Optiarc could only verify the 1st 50% and then struggled to read any further so I had to abort the verification but the DVD works no problems.
The copied disc is called DVD_1 Copy as I couldnt find a way to add the original title which was 464210-9961 but as said it works.
The discs used (6 coasters and 1 good copy) were Ritec S04 DVD+R DL
I hope this easy method helps someone else who is looking to back up their SatNav DVD.[/QUOTE]
