Okay, hi all there.
I am trying to backup two german DVDs: “Urmel aus dem Eis” and “Jim Knopf” (Augsburger Puppenkiste). I have already done several backups, but this time I am stuck. AnyDVD (latest trial) is working when inserting the disc, but “finding” nothing, so I assume no there is no CSS protection, but that is not the deal. DVDShrink says something like “No valid navigation system” and stops at the analysing state. Nero of course refuses to copy the disc in any way, Alcohol (latest trial) find a lot of read errors at sectors 21000-28000 and CloneDVD Trial also stops with an error message at about 0,8% of the movie.
The layout of those two dvds are “normal”, i.e. one audio_ts and one video_ts folder, nothing else. The original disc plays fine on any of my 3 standalone player as well as on powerdvd on my comp.
On to my final question:
Does anybody know anything about a new copy protection (theses two movies are old, but the dvds were produced this year) containig read errors on commercial dvds ??
Edit:// I almost forgot to mention, that I can reproduce this error on any dvd-rom and dvd-writer I own (on win2k sp4 and win xp sp1a).
