    Dvd Copying Problems!! Please Help!!!

    Hey guys i have a problem!!

    I have been trying to copy a dvd but whe its creating the image to copy is when i am
    encountering the problem. Ive used a couple of different programs but all dont finish
    copying.

    BTW the disc has hardly any damage on it, very few minor scratches...no major damage like
    chips or anything loike that and you can only see the minor scratches in a very bright
    light. The disc is in great condition, its very hard to see any scratches at all.

    ANyways with nero it stops at 99% when creating the image and says reading disc failed. With
    DVD shrink, once i open disc it comes up with the DVD shrink encountered an error and cannot
    continue. Invalid DVD navigation structure. I have also tried DVD decrypter and it also gets
    to 99% before it fails to read sectors!!! I have also tried DVDfab decrypter and it doesnt
    bring up the disc at all when i insert it!!

    I have cleaned the disc twice with a dvd cleaner but nothing....i am beginning to think that
    the disc has some damage i cannot see but i also think the disc may have some protection
    where it cannot be copied!!

    Is there anyway to know for sure whether the disc is damaged or has some protection on it???

    The fact that it happens on 99% is pretty wierd so i think it could be some protection but
    you guys know more than me. What do you think???

    If it's a copy protected disc (which it sounds like it is) then you're highly unlikely to get any help here.

    Is there any way i can tell whether it is a copied disc or whether it has errors?? BTW its a data disc not a movie or anything so i wouldnt be suprised if it has protection because of the content on the disc.

    If it's a data disc why use DVDShrink? Also just based on the stack of DVDs next to my PC - C&C3, Medieval 2, Warhammer - all data discs, all (afaik) copy protected.

    Also the DVD Burning software should tell you if a disc is protected. Nero certainly does.

    Good call on the error checking.

    Otherwise have you tried just copying the DVD contents to hard drive first, then burning the files to a new DVD?

    Well i thought by creating an image and then saving that image to the hard drive then burning the image, isnt that sorta the same thing??

    ohhh...you mean actually manually copy and paste to hd from dvd.....very smart, that didnt cross my mind!! ill try that too

    okay well i tried copying and pasting but it came up with an error:

    Error Copying File Or Folder - Cannot copy license: Cannot read from the source file or disk.

    It stopped on the file license.rtf...

    I went to the file and i cant even open it so i think there are errors on the disk

    AMAZING PROGRAM!!!! i checked the whole disc for errors...turns out 3 files (irrelevant files) have errors and cant be read but everything else is good!!!! Luckily they are files that arent too significant or important!!

    That program is great!!! If you have any disk (DVD or CD) which you think may have errors...USE THIS PROGRAM!!! Tells you exactly where the errors are and everything!!
