    I have a DVD (copy only) which would play in my DVD player for a few seconds and get stuck. If I press fastforward, it would go on until the end. If I play normal, it would get stuck again after a few seconds.

    I have copied the DVD into the hard disk which could then be played normally by PowerDVD.
    I have tried making another copy of the DVD from the hard disk files; and even reauthoring the title using IFOedit, the problem was still there.

    I think most likely there might be some problems with the VOB files.
    Any suggestions as to how I can patch the VOBs in order to make a playable copy for my DVD player.

    If the source is corrupt then no I would think there's nothing that can be done , other than getting hold of the disc again & try ripping it afresh.

    Hiya hkgymman1,

    if you suspect the VOBs are corrupt, check them this way:

    Use IFOEdit with ONLY the VOBs
    "Create IFOs"
    Have a look at the PGC/Chapter info from VTS_01_0.IFO (the root of the file), of particular interest is cell & ID data.

    You could even post the data here (hint).

    Do a "Get VTS sectors"
    Test & Burn (not NERO, please!!)

    Have Fun...
