    can you be a bit more descriptive, plus do some searching, i think i see what you're on about, but it would help if we had more to go on..

    if your using DVD decypter, the disc may be dirty or damaged, it may play fine, but you cant rip it

    If those copies are on crappy media or burned too fast, that will give you many errors-thus more difficulty in trying to re-rip them.

    Run them through a scan test like nero or dvdinfopro to check for errors.

    Hello bilbo, I do quite of bit of ri-ripping my backups. Just got the epson r-200,so I'll be re-ripping those onto ink jet printable dvd +r's. I'm just glad I used high quality media and a 4x burn speed on them the first time. So far,100% re-rip success using nero's copy disc feature.A heck of a lot quicker than re-encoding them bad boys onto my hard drive. The disc scans have looked great on these printable/re-rip copies.

    Hell no,lol I found some memorex pritables at staples- $25 for 20 of them,what a rip-off.I didn't trust them either,probably prodisc.
    Verbatim +8x data life plus have worked very well so I bought the full hub printable ones at meritline.com for 70 cents apiece. All those verb datalife plus +8x have been registering as MCC-003,metal AZO dye,and excellent in both my benq's.Both benq's can booktype the + media to dvd-rom,making them more compatable on stand alones. Later
