My girlfriends grandpa died and the funeral home made an hour long DVD with pictures provided by the family. Her dad was provided only 1 DVD and he asked me to make copies for the rest of the family. The problem is, I cant seem to rip it with anything. Ive tried DVD Decrypter, IMGBurn, Nero, IsoBuster, Passi ONES, and Alcohol. Ive even tried just exploring the disc in windows and D Opus but I get an error message saying it cant recognize the disc.
Heres the log from Alcohol...
12:15:05 DVD Source Info: Session: 1, Track: 1, Length: 499.1 MB / 056:46:70
12:15:05 Disc read error at: 0
12:15:05 Disc dumping failed!

12:15:05 Writing image file: G:\BERT\alcohol\NEW.mdf
12:15:05 G:\BERT\alcohol\NEW.mds: Image file writing aborted!
If I set it to ignore errors, it doesnt copy anything.
The newest PowerDVD says its not a valid windows format.
I cant believe I can rip multimillion dollar studio retail DVDs but a little funeral home has better copy protection. There has to be something different about this disc.
Wasnt there something a while back that if you simply put a zero as the the first data bit, the disc couldnt be read on a computer. Forgive me if Im way off and totally wrong, but I was thinking of that last night. If this is true, is there any way around that?
Does anyone have any idea as to what I can try to do?
Thanks for the help.
