In order to test my new DVD burner, I am attempting to backup some PS2 games that are themselves backedup on DVD-R media (Orincno [spelling?]). I was hoping that after I had gotten an image of the DVD game, I could transfer the game to DVD+R media, since DVD+R (RiTek) media is compatible on newer PS2 consoles.
The problem I am having regards DVD image creation software. Apparently, when there is a read error, the software I am using simply stops the image creation process. I then have to start the process all over again, from the beginning. However, this does not help because the image creation process stops once again at the same point.
I have used Alcohol 120%, and Veritas. Both of these softwares halt on read errors. I know Alcohol 120% provides the option of skipping read errors, but is this necessarily a good thing?
My Sony DRU-500ax has the latest sony firmware, 2.0e. It is also configured as a slave drive, while my PX4012a (1.05 firmware) is the master. These two drives are connected to the motherboards’ primary IDE. (My Asus K7V motherboard recognizes the master / slave confirguration correctly, however both my BIOS and WINXP puts the Plextor in PIO mode 4, while putting the SONY on UDMA 2). (As a side note, I use a Promise ATA133 PCI card to run my two ATA100 drives (40 Gig Maxtor & 80 Gig WD), since the K7V only goes to ATA66.)
I have installed ForceASPI, and update the ASPI with the latest drivers from Adaptec.
Does anyone know of any software that has the same error correcting features as Plextools or ExactAudioCopy, but made for ripping DVD games? I’m really looking for software that does not halt the ripping process when encountering a read error, but instead attempts to re-scan the errored sector of the DVD until it extracts in similar fashion as EAC of PlexTools.
