I have two drives:
When I burn a new DVD-R on NEC, it passes well, and this disk is read well on NEC.
When I try to read/copy burned disks on Sony or on some other drives (including some hardware dvd-players):
a part of disks are read well, but other part shows such error:
“Copy Protection Error - The read failed because the sector is encrypted”
This occurs on both disk types: [B]DVD-Video and DVD-Data, on different content (downloaded from internet,[/B] copied from another disks);
I tried to burn disks in Nero, in Ashampoo Burning Studio, tried to reinstall system (WinXP SP2) - the same result;
I tried to flash Liggy’s firmware 1.03 and 1.04 with RPC1 pach, this have not helped as well…
However I can copy these disks well through DVD Decrypter;
Then I have updated firmware of Sony CRX320E up to NYK5 - and it began to read those disks now!..
But it does not solve a problem because those protected disks will not be readable on other drives and on hardware dvd-players.
Is that possible to make something with drive 7173A (maybe flash another firmware, etc) for avoiding creation of this horrible copy-protection?[/QUOTE]
I suggest reading the forum rules.
also, the rule #1 is to use reliable dvd media.
What media have you used??
