    Hi, try dvdfabhddecrypter beta from www.dvdfab.com its free and may be better able to handle the disc. Also try another drive as different drives read discs to a diferent degree of success

    Here is what anydvd offers.

    here is a screen shot of my anydvd menu for the dvd tab.

    As you can see it allows you to remove little annoying features before you rip the dvd.
    If you select jump directly to movie, then it will make it so when you burn the dvd that is in, or rip it, it will remove the menu for you.
    It does this all the second that dvd is put into your drive.

    Pretty much makes it so your computer doesn't even read these parts of the dvd.
    And since it gives you the option to remove the region codes and css, and all that, you can just copy dvd to dvd without riping it to your harddrive.
    The only thing that stinks is that you cant rip with anydvd, you must rip with a different program.
    But since all protection is removed you are able to just copy and paste the files.
    Thats what i do.
    And its worked great for me every time.
    I can even re-burn the files onto a disk using Nero, or Clonedvd 2 (which is the one i use.)

    Hope I gave you a good view on how anydvd works.

    2 things spring to mind here...

    1, if a guy made these just do an easy copy of a copy (as theres no protection in them) dont rip anything at all, could use copy and paste useing windows even...

    2, Doesnt standalone dvd recorders have the extra files of VR in them so yes ripping will cause an error, like dvd-+VR standard...

    whats folder names do you have on dvd - VIDEO_TS / AUDIO_TS and maybe a VR folder?
