    hi again.

    hopefully you guys/gals can help me out again. i am trying to back up "epic movie" and everything i try craps out with "cyclic redundancy" and other read errors. there are no scratches on the disc to make it unreadable.

    i have tried anydvd w/ dvdshrink, anydvd w/ dvddecrypter, anydvd's ripper, ripit4me 1.7.1 w/ fixVTS and nothing can break this gorramn thing.

    i have a sony vaio pent.3 1.8ghz, 80gb hd, windows xp and a sony DRU-700A dual layer burner.

    this is the first movie that i have not been able to back up, and since my teenage nieces love these type of movies i just know that it will be scratched up after their many visits this summer.

    thanks in advance to all that help!!!

    Does it play in a dvd player?
    It might be a bad press?
    you didn't list DVDFab HD, you can try that, although anydvd and RI4M should have worked.

    the disc plays perfectly in a set top box. i tried fabdecrypter-hd and it craps out also. i just tried vob blanker and it had an error stating that it processed too early.

    this is easily the most frustrating movie ever. not even casino royale or saw 3 were this bad.

    anyone else have any suggestions? thanks for all the help!!!

    DVDFab HD makes easy work of this film, for Region 2 anyway, though i've read nothing untoward about Epic movie anywhere to suggest any other region would be different

    Since there is no movie that I know that AnyDVD, Ripit4me or DVDFabDecrypter-all updated- can't do, I would think there is some defect in the press. It could still play correctly but not copy. I would try another copy of the DVD before panicking. JM2C

    I just used DVD Shrink and it worked perfectly fine for me the first time. I have no idea what might be wrong sorry.

    thanks for all the replies. fortunately i found a way around the errors.

    i downloaded the trial version of clonedvd and ran it through that. the funny thing is that clonedvd was getting "cyclic redundancy" errors at the same point as everything else.

    i was discouraged again and was about to give up when i hit the "details" button on the error box. within then i hit "retry" and it started processing the disc in small increments.

    it took me about 35 minutes of doing this procedure (around 200 clicks) to get the rest of the video processed.

    i was a little hesitant about whether the disc would actually burn, let alone play. sure enough, i popped that bad boy in the player and it played beautifully...no errors or glitches at all.

    that was easily the single worst backup that i have ever experienced, i just wish that i had actually figured out some technical trick that i could take credit for, but i am happy enough with some lucky backdoor mickey mousing.

    thanks again to all that responded.

    What you are describing is a disc with small defects. Some burners are quick to read them. I have an LG that will out read two wonderful benQ burners any time. If I have a problem disc the LG will usually do it without error. glad you got it fixed.
