Another DVD Problem Im Stuck With

I described this in the other thread, but thought it might help out more people in its own....


I have a DVD+R I recieved in a trade that plays perfectly on a stand alone DVD player. On my computers dvd drive it doesnt show the video folder, as its not a closed disc. I have tried to close the disc and get this message (using Roxio):

"Session Fixation Error: Empty or partially written reserved track in session - Illegel Request"

So no luck there. And then I remembered Lynne posted this:

So I tried that, as it recognized that there was actually a video_ts folder on the disc. But when I tried that I got to about 14% done and get this error message:

"Unrecognized read error: Medium error"

So there is something on that disc, that plays on a dvd player, I just cant get it off that disc any way. Any suggestions? Thanks, and cheers.

Does the whole disc play OK in a standalone player?

Are you able to try the disc in a different DVD-ROM drive? I have access to about 4 or 5 different drives, and I had a case where a particular disc was only readable in one of them.

It plays fine on 3 different stand alone dvd players, but just wont read in any dvd reader (and they are all DVD+R which the disc is)

Which seems to prove that it's not a hardware problem, but a software problem.

Have you tried different software to create an image file from the DVD? "DVD Decryptor" seems to be the standard Windows tool for that kind of thing. I don't know what else is available for Windows, but if you know someone with a Linux box, you can simply type:

dd if=/dev/hdc of=image.iso

Where "/dev/hdc" is the "device name" of the DVD drive - this varies between installations, and "image.iso" is the output filename.

Unless someone comes up with a better plan, I think it's just a case of trying as many different methods of creating an image file as you can until one works.

Re: Another DVD Problem Im Stuck With

so I take it you can't see the VIDEO_TS folder and its contents in normal explorer view, right? If you can I have another option that might work...

But what software have you been using to try to create the ISO? Are they all Windows computers?

Have you tried DVD Decrypter? The author has been forced to discontinue it, but it can still be downloaded from here:

http://www.rarewares.org/others.html

(scroll down to the bottom of the page).

As far as I know, this is the recommended Windows DVD ripper - I've never used it, but am pretty sure it can rip to an image file.
