    Hello long time ANY DVD user here.
    I have lots of backup copys of movies i made with anydvd and dvd x copy express. like 200 plus.
    I am trying to rip them to my computer so i can use handbreak to make them in to mp4 files. I have tried 5 disks none of them will rip.
    It gets part done then just stops no error message just stops.
    If i put store bought dvd's in it works fine. insted of my backups.
    Any Ideas.
    Thank you in advance for the help

    you answered your own question really:
    just use the original (store bought) dvd's again with handbrake to make the mp4 files.

    on another note,what brand of blank media did you back up your (store bought) dvd's to?
    lots of people on here swear by verbatim blank media.

    verbatim or imation. A few of the movies are scratched because my lovely wife does not take care of the disks. so my backup is the only hope.

    Imation is junk, and expecting problems with backups produced on Imation blank should be expected. And since you're having problems with backups produced by dvdxcopy, contact the makers of that program. This isn't an Andydvd issue.

    Download Nero cd-dvd speed. It's a free program. With Anydvd running in the background, select the tab labeled "scandisc". Select the appropriate drive letter, and click "start". If Nero cd-dvd speed reports read errors, your disc is (probably) bad--even if it plays fine (or your optical drive could be slowly dying).
