So. I bought a new PC with a DVD burner yesterday.
I went to back up a DVD I own, using DVD Xcopy Xpress. It got nearly all the way through and then said Error Occurred Reading Sectors! Data: 195/192.
I assumed this had something to do with encryption, so I went online and downloaded DVD Decrypter. I ran the DVD through that program and got a nice set of 14 files that play on my pc.
Then I tried to use the Record Now! software that came with the puter to make a copy of the folder: Too Big.
I went back online and downloaded DVD Shrink and ran the original DVD through that program and got another very playable PC movie. Once again I tried to make a copy with Record Now!, this time it did my bidding with no complaint.
And then … I tried to play it in my DVD player. DISC ERROR. :a
What is wrong here? Did I miss a step? Was I supposed to convert the file types? How? Could it just be a coincidental problem with the original disc? Is there some reason my DVD player wouldn’t accept files created by DVD shrink???
I didn’t buy pc speakers yet (didn’t know I had to), so I don’t know for sure that the audio works on the pc movie; I’m assuming it does.
As you know, this takes hours and hours of time. So, having spent $1163.70 and 17 hours, I’m a little frustrated to have dip in the way of results. Please remember if you give advice, I’m a total non-starter with this stuff, so make it moron friendly. Thanks for any help.
