    Is there any software or work around that handles disks with CRC errors?

    A CRC error typically indicates a bad original disc. Even if you make a backup of a bad original disc, the backup will be imperfect--since read errors will have to be skipped over, leaving your backup with missing material (if even for a few cells).

    Two other possibilities also exist:

    A) You're not doing something right.

    B) Anydvd can't handle a title yet.

    If you want us to check, then . . .

    1. Ensure you're using Anydvd 6.3.1.2

    2. a) Ensure Anydvd is running.
    b) Put the problematic original disc in your optical drive/reader. Wait for Anydvd to scan the disc.
    c) Right click the red fox icon on your toolbar.
    d) Select "Create Logfile"
    e) Wait for Anydvd to create a log file.
    f) A pop-up screen will appear. Take note of the location where Anydvd created the logfile and the logfile's name. Click "ok".
    g) Go to your My Documents folder
    h) You will see a zip file called "Anydvd_Info_titleofmydisc.zip" (or something similar; see step f)
    i) When replying or posting in the Slysoft forums, look for the icon that looks like [​IMG]
    j) If you don't see that paperclip icon, click the "go advanced" button. You should see that icon now. Click the paperclip.
    k) A small pop-up screen should appear (if it doesn't please ensure your browser is enabled to allow pop-ups from the Slysoft forums)
    l) Click the "Browse" button, and locate and select the .zip file you created.
    m) click "upload"

    3) State the full a)error message(s) you encountered (click "details"), b)tell us what program(s) you were using when you received the error message(s), and c) describe in detail what you were doing when you received the error message(s). What problem are you having exactly?

    4) 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, let us know.

    DVD clone can't handle CRC errors at all and deletes all material prior to the crc error. I have had some luck with a program called "convertXtoDVD" but it only on material up to the error. This has worked somewhat when the error is at the end of the DVD but useless when error is at beginning.

    Why should it? CRC errors, again, mean you have a bad original disc. Clonedvd is not intended for people to produce faulty backups.
