I recently bought a 2-DVD set of a old super bowl. I guess it was made from either a laser disc or maybe one of the tape formats. Anyway, because it’s 30+ years old (the game) I wanted to make an archive backup just in case. I put it in my NEC DV-5700A drive, and immediately a message pops up that AnyDVD 126.96.36.199 failed to read the DVD because of several possible reasons:
- Media is dirty (it’s flawless).
- DVD is damaged (its flawless).
Your drive is a region locked RPC2 drive, try to read a DVD from another region (all my original DVDs and some copies work). Also notes to try patching firmware.
- Your drive is a RPC2 drive that has no region assigned to it.
Now, I put the DVD in my burner drive (NEC-3500AG) and the DVD plays. So I’ll admit I’m not that technically oriented, so I was wondering what all this is about? I’ve flashed motherboard BIOS before, so should I be flashing the firmware on the player drive?
BTW, my pc is a dual MP setup, I’m running W2K.
