Read Error TCSectorReader TCE

Can anyone tell me what the above error message means? I’ve only gotten on 1 DVD I’ve tied to back up so far out of about 30 or so but I’m not sure why I get it and how to correct this error. :sad:

It means what it says: A read error. Very likely, that the disc is scratched or dirty. (If I remember correctly, the sheep in the info window gave you the tip to clean the disc, didn’t it?)

No tip was given by the sheep to clean the DVD.

Any other suggestions to solve this problem?

It is also possible, if you have a disc with a new copyprotection. What disc is it?

The Forgotten
