    hi

    so you played the film / watched it for 5 minutes on the PC and after you tryed to rip it and it did the same error?

    ok, get the big guns out! get dvd decrypter and rip it! its a free app, follow my sig for it!

    no, it wouldnt even let me play the disc on powerdvd, says that the'dvd had been interrupted'. dvd decrypter is what i usually use but it wont work on that either! im reall baffled to what is wrong with it. the dvd plays perfectly on standalone dvd players, just having trouble on my pc. thanks for your help so far i appreciate it.

    hi there

    you may have some thing running in the background stopping it play right?

    if useing xp pro click ctrl+alt+delete and stop all apps except ones being used by you to play or rip!

    sounds like something trying to grab the dvd to play or something?

    also stop antivirus software etc..

    Is this what you meant, that you are trying to backup a copy of the movie or is it the original?

    I would then go to a Blockbuster or Hollywood video store, etc. and rent a copy to see if it is the disk you own or some other glitch. If this is the only DVD that this happens with, it might just be the disk. If it is the Movie version itself, and neither DVD’s work, you can always ask for a refund or credit.

    im wondering cause i updated to the latest firmware on my drive it would have a effect on reading certain dvds im thinking it may be that but then again i got 2 different drives.

    This is a very weird one i can understand Resident Evil II different decyption but this is not a different decryption and its not exactly a new film so ill just have to muck around finding a way.

    It's more than likely your original disk that is bad. You could try cleaning it really good, and if this is the first disk you have come across with this problem consider yourself lucky. I am sure anyone that has backed up a lot of movies have run into problematic disk's that wont rip. I have invested in a nice little gadget called a SkipDR [​IMG]
    This thing has succesfully repaired many of my problematic disks. So if you are planning on backing up a lot of movies you are going to need something to repair/clean those problem disks. My guess would be get another copy of the movie and give it another shot. There is nothing special about this movie many have backed it up perfectly fine.

    but i have tried another copy on not being able to rip my original i decided to see if it was my disc so i rented one and tried to see and it turned out that its not the disc there must be something softwarewise, if you say other people have ripped succesfully then it must be software. But what software i got the same as everyone else. unless you can think of some software i havnt got that i could try...

    Well it's not all that impossible that 2 disks could be bad. I had a disk before that took me to getting it 3 times before I got one that worked. Go back to where you rented the second movie and tell them it dosent play right and you need another copy they should replace it at no cost to you. I backed that movie up using Only Decrypter and Shrink nothing special needed so it is not a software issue. It has to be the disk. If you want to see the method I used for that particular movie just go to my website (link in sig) and check out the first guide posted there. I still believe it is your original disk..

    i have also tried 3 different discs of anaconda and still could not get it to work, it looks as though there was a fair few bad discs in circulation for that particular film, as i said before i have backed up 100+ dvds and this is the only problematic one except for res evil 2 where i had to use anydvd and clonedvd2 rather tha shrink and decrypter. i hope somebody finds a sure answer soon.

    you know what i think your right, i think there's loads of bad discs in circulation ive backed up over 200 dvds and this is the only one ive come across and re2 as well thats like this I think im gonna give up on this one.

    It's a shame though i spend money on a dvd and I should be able to back it up.
