Hi guys. I’m at work so I don’t have any data off the disc to post, but I was curious if anyone has been able to make a working copy of The Brothers Grimm?
I made sure I had the latest versions of AnyDVD and CloneDVD2 installed (do I also need to make sure CloneCD is upgraded so it doesn’t leave stale drivers behind?). AnyDVD appears to crack the disc successfully, but here’s the weird part:
When AnyDVD is enabled, the video off the disc is extremely choppy. This is either the video written to the hard drive before I burn it to a new disc (I can open a video stream with PowerDVD and it’s choppy as heck), or the original disc in the drive played with PowerDVD when AnyDVD is enabled. However, if I disable AnyDVD, the disc plays very smoothly. It’s as if AnyDVD is making the playback/rip of the disc choppy.
This is the first time I have encountered this. I’ve copied many other movies on this computer without experiencing this. It seems to be just with this disc. The machine is a dual-processor Athlon 2800 with 1.5GB RAM and RAID-1 hard drive array (WD 120GB drives). CPU usage, as always, was very low during the entire process, so I don’t think that’s the issue.
So again, the question is if anyone else has had problems with The Brothers Grimm, or does it rip fine for others?
