    CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP. I had posted something on the DVDx copy site and got redirected to here. I have been getting the error message "error occured reading sectors! UnableReadDVD"
    I was told to get the ANYDVD program. Which i did. and it worked for some movies but there are still some that i cannot do. EXAMPLE The PUNISHER, CASINO.
    Is there something else out here that will be able to read and copy ALL movies with out any problems. Im not that good with computers so hopefully its not that hard to do. by the way im using DVDXCOPY XPRESS. if that helps.

    PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!
    thanks

    Marcos17, welcome to aD,

    If you have a "Browse" button in your XCopy the use DVD Decrypter.

    http://www.dvddecrypter.com/

    RIPPING WITH DVD DECRYPTER

    I'd like you to check your DVD Decrypter's settings. First, it should be version 3.5.1.0. Go to "Tools", "Settings", set everything to "Default". Then in the "General" tab change, "Removal Method" from "Normal" to "Aggressive", in "File Mode", "tick" Remove PUO's." For ripping in the "ISO Read Mode", "tick" "Remove PUO's" there also. in the "CSS" tab, under "CSS Cracking Method", choose "Brute Force ~> I/O Key Exchange" and "On Failure" choose "Yes". . IMPORTANT: In the "I / O" tab, in the bottom right, "tick" the box which says, "Ignore read errors". This is an excellent setting for dealing with scratched discs which may cause ripping problems.

    Rip with DVD Decrypter using the "File" "Mode" then use the "browse" button and pick up the files and process as usual.

    It would be much easier if you used a better program like DVD Shrink (FREE) to work with but if your happy with that kind of quality then, "Burn on" -

    Cheers,

    Pete

    I downloaded the DVD SHRINK to see if that works better. I got to the part where it read the whole dvd and then I clicked on the back up button. It said that i had to had NERO. SO i downloaded NERO. Do i have to hit the ANALYSIS button first? or can i just go and back up. it was almost done then it said that the file could not be read.
    Is there something to that?

    Iffin you had thought to bother to read a guide you would have found out that you didn't go to edit, preferences,I/O and un-tick Nero -

    Being sloppy isn't a way to get a sucessfull backup -

    I hope you made all the other settings correctly -

    It means that your dvd is scratched or dirty, try cleaning the dvd and try again. Did you set up all the options in decrypter the way uncle pete told ya? It is very important that with a scratched dvd you set the i/o to ignore read errors.

    marcos,

    It could always be a Mfgr bad pressing -

    This error = a "Cyclic Redundancy error" or an "I/O error". This message can mean that your discs are scratched or dirty, it can also mean that your burner won't accept your "cheap" media :-(

    The scratches don't have to be visable at all, my last suggestion is begin by playing your DVD with your PC's player. Play for two or three minutes then open your DVD Shrink, DVD X Copy or your weapon of choice - as soon as you begin your rip turn off your player so it doesn't interfere. The playing before hand is only so that your ripping program can "Find" your DVD.

    Also try the "Magic cleaning" technique: Try cleaning your DVD discs. Yea, I know they're new and clean but do it anyway. Do it a few seconds before inserting it into your DVD tray, use a disc cleaner, eyeglass cleaning solution or 99% Isopropyl Alcohol and a soft cotton cloth and rub-a-dub, dub. As soon as you're finished, "Pop" it into your DVD tray and fire up your program.

    Once again, re-check those settings I gave you for DVD Decrypter - If you can't get a sucessful rip with that, return the disc as faulty and get another -

    Report back with your results -

    Pete
