Why is it that I have so many problems ripping my own backups?
This started with a NEC2500A, moved onto a NEC3500A and LiteOn 1693, and still have the same problems. There always seems to be an error while reading the disc, generally somewhere from the middle to the end of the disc (anywhere from VTS_04_0.IFO to VTS_08_0.IFO or so...).
I've tried a number of different apps to overcome this, including nero, blindwrite, decrypter, 1click, clonedvd, alcohol, roxio, etc... and they all fail around the same area. The discs play back fine on standalone, but give me the hardest time duplicating. When I'm running AnyDVD, upon disc insertion, it tells me it cannot read the disc.
When I take those discs however, to my buddy's house, and try to rip them on his LiteOn 1673, it works fine... I recently bought the 1693, hoping it would be as good, if not better than his 1673 rips...
What am I doing wrong here... is it perhaps an aspi driver, or perhaps use a different engine, or maybe a problem with the burners themselves (doubtful)?
All recorders have the most up-to-date firmware available to them at the time of the posting.
