damn thing failed after 26 retries within which the buffer usage would slowly go from 0% to 100% and back… this is the second disc in a row to have this error and when not getting this error, the ripping and burning is exorbitantly slow (51 minutes to rip and another 51 minutes to burn with dvd decrypter and nero 6 (which somehow reports 12x burning speed) using 8x verbatim dvd-rs)… what is going on?!

dma is enabled and i’m using windows 98 with an unoverclocked xpm in an nf7s v2 with 512mb kingston value ram… help?

You might want to try DVDFabdecrypter, its free and updated frequently.

Agree with campman. Don’t know what disc you’re trying to bkup (you didn’t say) but the last and final update for dvdd was around march or april '05!
You can also use AnyDVD…it interfaces nicely with dvdd. I use this combo for DL burns…flawless bkups.

the unrecovered read error might suggest a damaged or defective original disc. Try DVDFabdecryptor as campman suggested, it’s pretty good at reading bad discs. Even better, though more complicated and longer is isobuster.

This error seems to me due to an arccos protection disc. What is the movie?

Latest version of DVDFabdecryptor should solve your problem

try dvd shrink this allso decrypts fabdecrypt changes drives so it wont recodnize dvd

Huh? Could you explain what you are saying, I don’t get you about the drive changing?

i’ve used fab extensively. it did what to my drive?
