    If this is second time(or more) you have tried to back up the movie try erasing from your hd and do a disk cleanup and reboot. Hope that helps and works!

    CRC errors generally mean that the disc has a problem so that it can't be read. It could be dirty or scratched, or it could be a defective disc. If it's scratched you might try something like a Disc Doctor. That's always worked for me. If it's a defective disc you'll just have to take it back or if it's an old one, buy another one.

    It's a little machine that you place the disc in and it polishes the disc. You can get them that you crank by hand or that plug into the wall. After a couple of discs you will wish you had the one that plugs in.

    CRC's are indeed almost always dirty/scratched/damaged discs you may not be able to see the bad spot but it's there. Sometimes they look almost like water marks on the bottom of the disc. Sometimes the disc is just a little corupted. If you can return the disc for a new one the one you have is defective, if not then rent the same title and back it up from the rental (you do still have the original)

    water marks on the bottom of the disc...I'll be damn. That explains why I can't back up Sopranos. It has those spots on it. Best buy has this thing?

    Yes they do, again if you can get the one that plugs in. It works gret for light to medium scratches but it won't get rid of those water marks, they are in the pressing of the disc. Rent the one you need and back it up.

    michigan,
    We I got it(i.e.Norton Sys). Tried backing up my disk using shrink , had 4 minutes and ran across some GD error that said this file is encrytped. Little pissed and my dell came close to flying out the 2nd story window. My luck it would have wings and fly back to the front porch.
    Going to try to reinstall shrink. Suggestions?/slb

    Best buy was out of diskdoc so I got something that was close(at least that what they said). I think I'm going to try DVD43. I have tried everything with the excpetion of going out and buying another disk. I'm bound and determined to back this f'ing thing up. I'll keep ya posted. Going to give it another try this weekend. tx
