Newbie needs help

I’m new at this so if I do wrong, I apologize.

I just bought a new (and expensive) set of education DVDs. I’ve tried to copy them with alochol 120 but keep getting a ton of disk read errors! I’ve also tried DVD decryptor Ver (sorry to see that its dead:( ) got W 18:36:51 Sector 719762 - Pack Header Not Found (0x07435024) infinite times! DVD shrink and DVD X PLatinum doesn’t work either? What should I do?

Thanks for the help! Apologies if I did something wrong.

are these video dvds?


try installing AnyDVD (they have a free trial) and see if that works in helping you get around the problem.

Installed AnyDVD, looked at the DVD with it and got:

Summary for drive F: (AnyDVD
Drive (Hardware) Region: 1

Media is a Data DVD.
Booktype: dvd-r (version 5), Layers: 1

Video DVD (or CD) label: CMRP1

RCE protection not found.

Then tried to uses Clone DVD 2 as suggested but I keep getting cyclic redundancy checks!!! For example:
F:/VIDEO_TS/VTS_01_2.VOB: read error
Data error (cyclic redundancy check).
If reading the media has failed, please clean the surface and try again.
[File 1 F:/VIDEO_TS/VTS_01_2.VOB: 23 PictureReader]

What gives!!! The discs seem clean and they’re brand new. More Help please. (thank you so much AZImmortal.

@ P_RAD_S,

Suggest viewing the below Forum posting concerning CRC (cyclic redundancy check) errors. Note Olli’s comments in posting #6 on the three possible reasons for Cyclic Redundancy Check data error notification.

I know you probable don’t want to hear that you possibly have a defective DVD. I am confidant the your education DVD does not contain an new version of a copy protection scheme. You state that the DVD is clean so the only other thing is the possibility of a defective DVD.

Suggest checking your education DVD for CRC errors by using Nero CD-DVD Speed ( This is a free utility software program. The below forum link shows how to use Nero CD-DVD Speed to check for CRC errors. A correctly manufacture DVD does not contain any CRC errors. Just because a DVD appears to play correctly in a DVD playback deceive does not mean that it was manufacture correctly. The Nero CD-DVD Speed ScanDisc surface scan should not reveal any Red (Bad) sectors. If so this indicates a defective DVD. The DVD should be returned for a refund or replacement.

It should be noted that if currently the education DVD appears to play properly and if the education DVD does in fact contain CRC errors that there is a strong possibility that some time in the future that the education DVD would become unplayable.

Best Regards,
