Ok. Just recieved a DVD from a friend of mine.
It plays perfectly well in my stand-alone player.
But it unreadable in my computer.
The XP error message says
Windows cannot read from this disk. The disk might be corrupted, or it could be using a format that is not compatible with windows

ISObuster says there is only a session/track layout, no file system or files.
Though it does show the track as being 4.38 GB.

Is there a way I can pull the VOBs and such from this disc?

Thanks, but no joy.
It returns an error on every sector of the disc when it tries to decrypt it.

Try DVD Fab Decrypter (http://www.videohelp.com/tools/DVDFab_Decrypterl). DVDDecrypter is kinda old.

Well as far as I concern POWERDVD is ideal software for any operating system, so you better try it.

That is the software that came with my drive.
It can't even read the disc and keeps asking me to insert a disc.

Use ISO Puzzle. Read this: Recover Data From a Bad Disc (http://www.digitalfaq.com/forum/showthread.php/recover-data-bad-421.html)

FYI, I think that PowerDVD comment was left by a spammer. It was a stupid suggestion.

I'm starting to think there is nothing wrong with the disc.
I think it is more a problem that it was burnt with some kind of goofie burning system.

As I said. It plays perfectly fine in my stand alone.
But there is no file system on it for windows to read.

I think I am just going to get a new copy from a different trader.

It's not a rare show or anything like that. And I know several people who have it.
Just thought I would check and see if it might be something simple to salvage the disc I have.

i had that same problem years ago and it was the drive itself going bad...dunno if thats the case here for you, but something to think about

It might be UDF only, without the ISO bridged to it. Windows doesn't always like UDF-only media.

I agree - it might be a drive going bad or a simple case of that particular drive not liking that disk. Try a drive in another computer.
