I desperately need to know what software that could help my failing DVD player copy large files to the computer without starting all over again when it stops copying in the middle of the process. Sometimes the difficulty in copying doesn't lie with the fact the the cd is breaking but also because there are bad or corrupted regions because of scracthing or what have you.
For example, when i copy dvd VOB files, which as you know is quite large, can take quite a while. Is there a away to break it up in chunks? so when the hardware starts to have a hard time copying the file at, say, 900Mb mark, the software would save still save the file.
The application would take note that it has just copied 900 Mb file and would resume it's 200 Mb file in a separate task (in this scenario the total size if the file is 1100 Mb). The application would know the bad area in the cd and would skip the region. I don't mind losing around 10 Mb of data due to corruption rather than losing the whole file just because a few bad apples in the cd tracks.
Everytime i search google for an application of the sort i would get search results for dvd backup or dvd authoring programs. I'm so frustrated.
Is there an application of the sort? An application not invented yet? NO!
