View Full Version : DVD Decrypter read errors

11th May 2004, 12:34

I have only recently started using DVD decrypt and DVD Shrink, both of which are great programs, so i was hoping someone might steer me in the right direction with problems I'm having.

This problem doesn't happen on all discs, (this is probably the third time out of about ten), so maybe someone can tell me where it's falling apart.

Try with Smartrriper. It not fault to you. I use it on error for DivX conversions.

:) :) :) :)

Cheers for that, I'll give it a try.

My program is just reporting errors that your drive is throwing back.

Basically your drive is unable to read sectors that are part of that file.

You should ensure the disc is clean and not scratched.

It's also worth trying it in a different drive.

I tried with smartripper, but still the same problem.

I've also tried in my both my dvd drives with no success.

Should the fact that I can watch the DVD with no problems make any difference to whether I can rip it with no problems?

In short, no.

Stand-alone players are very forgiving of disk errors. Their only contract is to read whatever they can and decode it to the screen - and if what they read turns into garbage then they'll display garbage and so be it.

DVD-ROM are not forgiving at all. If they can't decode even one byte, they'll barf at you. Of course, all DVDs (including video DVDs) have pretty good error correction built in, so a disk has to be pretty badly messed up before a DVD-ROM will refuse to read it.

My fault for not being clear before.

When I said I could watch them without errors, I was referring to watching via my pc's dvd-rom.

Playing a film doesnt mean the program/drive will attempt to read every last little bit off the disc.

Rip the main title in IFO mode and it'll probably work if you really have watched the movie from start to end in the same drive.

Of course there's nothing to say the player isnt just skipping over the bad sector. As there are about 4 million on a disc, 1 isnt going to hurt too much!

Did you try just hitting 'ignore' in DVD Decrypter and seeing if it would continue?

How old is your dvd-rom?
I've found that some dvd-roms (3years or older) will refuse to rip dvd's, they'll play the disc (movie) flawlessly but won't rip.
Then again I've experienced the same problem and no matter how many drives I put it in (movie played fine), it turned out to be a bad disc.
My 2cents.

I have hit "ignore" before, but because of my lack of knowledge in relation to these things, I just assumed if it didn't read one sector, then it wasn't a successful rip and therefore I would cancel as soon as I encountered trouble.

I've managed to rip (using DVDShrink because of it's compression facility) 6 or so other dvds since this thread started with no problem, so I'm taking it as bad media when it hasn't worked.

Thanks for all your help people.
