Hey everyone, This is my first post and I really could use your help! I just upgraded my DVD burner to the NEC 6500A and I've been trying to rip a DVD and I keep getting the cylindrical redundancy error when opening the DVD in DVD Shrink 3.2. This happens right when it first analyzes the DVD and it stops around 38%. I also tried to use DVD Decrypter 188.8.131.52 but every time it gets to around 28% I get read errors and my drive starts to sound like it going to die so I cancel it at that point. I've read other threads and have changed the settings according to what others have suggested but still no luck. I’m trying to figure out if my new drive is causing the problem or is it the disc itself? I have ripped a few DVD’s without any problems so I don’t think it’s my drive but my friend has a Toshiba laptop and it ripped the DVD just fine. His drive was a CD-R/RW, DVD Rom drive (No DVD burning capability). I don’t know if that has anything to do with it or not but I thought I should mention it. A few people mentioned that there might be a new encryption that might be causing this to happen and I just wanted to get some opinions before I return the drive. I bought it online so it might take a while to exchange it! Anyway, thanks in advance! And hopefully someone might have a clue to what’s going on.
