Sony DVD RW DW G-120A - troubles reading disc

Hi - thank you for taking the time to read this.

I recently bought a Sony DVD RW DW G-120A and all appears to be fine apart from one specific game I own - Pro Evolution Soccer 5. When I try to install the game the drive beeps (very quietly) twice - it starts to spin, but then stops very quickly, and then starts again, and then stops again. This continues for about 3 minutes before it gives up.

I would have put this down as a faulty disc but the disc works fine in a friends computer. I’ve also tried his version of the game in my drive and hte same problem above appears.

I’m not sure what to do !

Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated (including posting this to the correct area of the forum if I’ve got it wrong)

Many, many thanks


Hi and welcome!

this sounds as if some nasty copy protection is kicking in:( As there is a special section about this, you may have a look there.


Thank you - and thank you for taking the time to reply.

I guess that may well be the case as I’ve tried DVDFab, AnyDVD, DVD Shrink and RipDVD recently (long story…) but I thought I’d uninstalled them all.

Is there any way to tell what is causing the problem and how to remove it ?
