This is really odd, but seems to be repeatable. I just got this new PC back at the beginning of January. It contains the same BD writer as my old PC, which was the same model as this new one, just with different default hardware now. The BD burner is an LG BU40N with firmware A102-01 in RAID configuration, like on my old system. Unlike on my old system, regularly and with repeated accuracy, DVD-5 discs fail to fully extract. They all die with read failures near the end of the process. I'd take the same disc, same version of AnyDVD, and rip it successfully right afterwards in my LG WH16NS60 with firmware 1.01 in a VanTech USB enclosure. I don't have any scan logs from discs because the only common thread involved seems to be the discs are DVD-5's. DVD-9's and BD-25's rip just fine. Next time I can get a DVD-5 to try, I'll try again in the BU40N and get an exact error message for follow up. And then I'll include a scan of the disc, but it probably will not return anything out of the ordinary. I know this sounds crazy, but these are the results I'm getting. Why would DVD-5's fail but DVD-9's and BD-25's extract just fine? I sure can't figure it out. Thanks!
