Newbee Cant Rip DVD

Hello, i am new to this forum. I just bought an NEC ND-3550a. original firmware v1.05 I am using DVD decrypter v3.4.5.0
i keep getting errors when i go to rip the dvd and i dont know how to get around it. i have tried cleaning the disk and so on but nothing works. the disk is not even that scratched at all. I also had a ND-1000 that kept giving me the same errors. i have also installed forcedaspi.

Here is the dycripter log

this goes on and on and on.

What movie are you trying to back up? If it is Pulp Fiction then it should be no problem. If not search google the movie you are trying to rip, and see if anyone else solved the problem. Be aware that some of the newest protections cannot be ripped by Dvd Decrypter. I have found that a combo of AnyDvd and CloneDVD work very good for the newest protections.

Sounds like a defective disc to me. Does it play OK?

silly me… despite the dvd looking completly clean and scratch free, i decided to clean the dvd anyway and the movie ripped without a hitch. I just thought it was very odd that a dvd that looks almost brandnew out of the box would be so dirty to where it wouldnt rip.

i have another question though, any dvd and clonedvd are not free programs, are there any other ripping programs that are free and are up to date? i understand that dvddecrypter is no longer being updated which is a shame.

DVD Fab Decrypter is the only other which is up-to-date and free.

Also I notice that you’re using ASPI. Don’t. Use Microsoft’s SPTI.

:bow:NERO BackITUp helped me recover about 20 Verbatim DVDs having the read error problem.

:sad:I still have 1 (One) verbatim DVD where NERO BackITUp failed and I am trying Active@Undelete (recovery software), no success as yet, still trying.
