    Bad media? What media are you using?

    Alcohol 120% is a 1:1 sector game backup program that is use to copying bad sectors in order to preserve the original copy protection. Your blank disc is probably degrading now, which is why Clonedvd2 is having problems. You can use Alcohol 120%, but chances are you're just copying read errors onto your new copy.

    The solution would be to store your backed up movies in a better manner and to choose high quality blank media in the future.
