I am happy to come across the forum and site where hopefully I can gain some help on some issues I am having. I have successfully been “backing up” my movies for a while now with little difficulty first using DVD Decrypter, Ifoedit and Nero. Then I discovered an easier route with AnyDvd & CloneDVD2. Everything going well until later on when I decide to finally watch the film.
On numerous occassions the movie will freeze at some point and stop, I have tried them in multiple players and even on my computer and these discs continue to just freeze. Last night I burned a few films and decided I would just fast forward through them and make sure they worked, same thing happened they would freeze. Freashly burned, no scratches no marks, I cleaned them with rubbing alcohol, still nothing. Then I get the stupid Cyclical Error message when I try and copy the files back over to my harddrive, or try to open the disc at all. It is beginning to get very aggrevating. Luckily this is only happening to a few, at least so far, I am in the practice of scanning my whole library and came across another one that has worked fine on many occassions and now is giving me the same crap, again no marks! This doesn’t make any sense to me, the only thing I can think of is the discs are just going bad, but none of them are more than a few months old. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
Also I have tried using Isobuster to recover the files, but even it stops and tells me it can’t read a certain file.
