    I'm having one brutal time trying to backup PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN - Dead Man's Chest
    I've tried DVD SHRINK, DVDSMITH, DVDFAB 8, even ANYDVD

    I've completely cleaned the disk.

    SHRINK stalls right at the get-go, SMITH - completely stalls about 50% thru it, FAB - same thing as SHRINK.

    ANRDVD reads it but theI can't get it to start after the initial scan

    SUGGESTIONS PLEASE

    Been there, Done that

    I took a chance and watched it all the way thru.

    80 minutes into the storyline, there was about 5 minutes of stalling and pixellating.

    Might be time to "try" to find a fresh copy from my local retailer.

    I backed it up with dvdfab 8.0.9.2 i had to use movie only mode to do it but it works and plays back on my ps3.

    I ripped it and saved it a ISO file and burned it with img burn.

    @marwen1

    Pixelation and Stuttering Could Be That You Are Burning at 2 Fast a Speed
    and 2 Close to The Edge of the Disc Coupled with Poor Media

    My Suggestion Is

    1. Burn at 1/2 The Rated Speed Of the Blank Media
    2. Set The Target Area To 4300
    3. Burn With Imgburn
    4. Use Quality Media (Verbatim AZO Discs)

    When marwin1 said movie was pixelating and skipping after 80 minutes, wasn't they meaning the original disc? Because all attempts failed to copy. If I read that right then they have a problem with the original. You can try another drive to read the disc or even another computer if you have one. Some drives will read problem disc better than others. I used AnyDVD to back mine up, been a while though.

    That is the correct answer his original disc is the problem. AnyDVD/CloneDVD/DVD-RB or DVDFab should do the trick otherwise. I don't use programs from the mid-evil times. :)

    You can try ripit4me if you can find it. It is a real old app but it is great at reading bad disks. You probably have what is called a 'bad pressing'. Ripit4me uses an alternate way to read the files by building its own directory. This ignores considerable surface damage and bad pressings. Most copy protection schemes screw with that so it works well on many modern types of protection but not all. Because this was so effective, the media blew this one off the market in no time.

    I use it as a last ditch effort before I grind the disk. With a bad pressing, the foil under the surface is bad, grinding is a waist of time.

    A warning, don't let it fix anything. It will see things as errors that may or may not be errors. Do let it run fixvts which you will need, plus another dinosaur decrypt. Decrypt is the 'father' of imgburn. It can use an alternate directory imgburn can't.
