    I know how to rip, shrink and burn my backups with programs like dvd decrypter, and dvd shrink... but i can not backup my dvd "the last samurai" for the life of me. when i insert it into my dvd drive, the drive doesnt recognize the disc, and its the same way when i put it into my dvd+/- rw drive. When i open dvd decoder it says "device not ready (medium not present)". i cant even play the dvd in my computer, interactual player says please insert disc.

    im confused!!!

    PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!

    If you can't get the original to even play, I would take a close look at it for dirt or damage. Maybe the info is corrupt. If other originals play it is most likely the disc.
