    A cyclic redundancy check (CRC) is a type of hash function used to produce a checksum – a small, fixed number of bits – against a block of data, such as a packet of network traffic or a block of a computer file. The checksum is used to detect errors after transmission or storage. A CRC is computed and appended before transmission or storage, and verified afterwards by the recipient to confirm that no changes occurred on transit. CRCs are popular because they are simple to implement in binary hardware, are easy to analyze mathematically, and are particularly good at detecting common errors caused by noise in transmission channels.

    check if scars on the disk (disk damages) or your burner are damaged.

    "Try cleaning the movie disc. If that does not work, if you are using an external DVD drive, please disconnect and reconnect the drive to your computer. Also try using an internal drive.

    It is possible the original movie you have has some bad sectors.

    (Cyclic Redundancy Check) or CRC Error

    This can happen on various reasons:

    1) DVD media is dirty - you can try to clean it
    2) DVD media is damaged, you have to replace it
    3) Your drive is a region locked rpc2 drive, which does not allow reading of scrambled sectors from a different region and try to read a DVD from a different region.
    You can try to find a rpc1 patched firmware at
    4) Your drive is an rpc2 drive that has not yet been assigned a region. try to assign one, or try to find a rpc1 patched firmware.

    The link is there takes you too the firmware page.

    To find the firmware you currently have use this:

    If it's not scratched or dirty I suggest returning it and get another one due to the manufacturer bad press (burn). "
