A couple of days ago I tried ripping a DVD to my hard drive and it kept getting a read error when it was 99% complete. I tried ripping it over and over again, and it kept doing the same thing, but what’s interesting is that it wasn’t at the exact same spot, just close to it, and it would progressively slow down reading the disc until it came to a stop and didn’t read anymore. I ripped the disc with no trouble at all using the DVD drive in my laptop, so it’s not the disc.
If anyone is wondering, I used DVD Decrypter to rip the DVD, but I have reason to believe that is not the problem because I’ve also tried playing the movie (which freezes near the end of the movie) and just a straight copy and paste (which also gets an error near the end of the last file–it’s not a protected DVD, so I can do a copy and paste). Has anyone had this problem before? Or does anyone know how to solve it? Help would very much be appreciated.
Lucky me; I have exactly two weeks left of my warranty on the drive, so if it is in fact the drive that’s causing problems I can get it replaced.
