thats very odd, because Im using DVDD 18.104.22.168 and every disc in the series is throwing up the same issues - will view perfectly (as stated) on all players, will even play fine via the viewpanel in ClonneDVD, but when you go to copy them it starts throwing up errors saying it cant read it!
Regarding versions, I have anydvd 22.214.171.124, and cloneDVD 126.96.36.199. (note Ive already sent a heads-up email to elby).
Ive had plenty of discs over the last couple of years that yes, have had cylclical redundancy errors and reading issues due to the poor quality of the disc, and I'd like to think that Im quite good at spotting them via playing them in different sets of dvd players. I reckon I can tell when thats not the issue. But look, if goober22 says that he did backup his seinfeld R1 discs on DVDD then fair enough maybe it isnt 'a new protection system' or could it be just on the R2? has that happened before?
The thing is whenever it has happened with CloneDVD in the past I have reverted to DVDD and then used CloneDVD on the files once they are on the HD. On this case I have left the Seinfeld disc on DVDD and it is still just slowly error reading every sector consecutively for 8 hours, I had to just abort it after that. Ive had it running again now for 3 hours with the settings to 'read error reties to '0'' and 'ignore read errors' just to see whether it will actually get through it, its on 'read errors : 630' and counting.....
The other thing possible that people have mooted on other threads is that it might be a bad press, well if so then every disc? and if so why do they all play perfectly all the way through on 4 different players and on the PC?
