I am looking for some experts here. I tried to backup Mindhunters R2 PAL UK/Ireland today with AnyDVD 188.8.131.52 and CloneDVD2 184.108.40.206 - it got most of the way through and then just started getting loads of errors in VTS_01.3.VOB As I was getting fed up clicking retry, I decided to get DVDDecryper in conjunction AnyDVD to rip the movie to my hard drive. (Using Elby CDIO). Got the the same VOB and loads and loads of retries and eventullay read errors.
I then tried switching DVDDecrypter to Patin-Couffin I/O and for the hell of it got DVDDecryper to check for structure protection as well (yes I know you are not meant to do this while AnyDVD is running) - It worked like a dream.
I then turned off DVDD looking for structure protection, still using Patin-Couffin and then read errors returned!!
I doubled check again with ElbyCDIO and SPTI and all had read errors regadless if I got DVDD to look for structure protection or not.
So my question is what is the difference between Patin-Couffin, ElbyCDIO & SPTI and why can I only get this movie to rip with Patin-Couffin?
I am willing to accept any answer to this, be it my writer, mastering errors on the original or just that my system is screwed!!
Oh and it is one of Sony’s lovley orange AccrOS protected discs!!
