Love the posts guys. . . .you all have helped me out a lot. Have been making backup copies for some time (with never an error). . . .started having consistent errors now though. Thinking it's a hardware issue but wanted to ask the pros. . . .I primarily use Clonedvd2 with Anydvd running in the bkg. Have the current updates of both installed. I have been getting that nasty cyclic redundancy check error a lot. It's not a matter of dirty disks. . .I just tried to back up a few brand new, clean as heck disks, and I get the error. I also get the error when trying to make a second backup of a backup. I get a certain percentage into the reading phase and then get the error. Also not a 'dirty disk' issue because they are brand new and spotless. I have however, just successfully backed up an older movie (1991) without the error. Any suggestions. I have done a lot of reading on this issue but it all points to dirty disks. I have backed up TONS of disks, as I own a lot of them. Getting the error a lot now. Almost every time I try new titles. I would appreciate any help you can provide. I have also tried crappy x-copy, dvdshrink (with dvddecryptor). Always getting the errors. Thanks in advance guys. You're the best.
