Problems backing up BAND OF BROTHERS

    Was backing up Band of Brothers for my husband and I keep getting a error on Disc 2 part 2. It says:


    Failed to Read DVD

    This could have several reasons:

    1. DVD Media is dirty, you can try to clean it.

    2. DVD Media is damage, you have to replace it.

    3. Your drive is a region locked RPC2 Drive, which does not allow the reading of scrambled sectors from a different region and you try to read a DVD from a different region.

    4. Your drive is an RPC2 Drive that has not yet been assigned a region. Try to assign one.

    The discs are brand new, I'm backing them up because we loan out our stuff alot. I know they aren't damaged or dirty and it will back up Disc 1 both parts AND disc 3 both parts! But just not Disc 2 part 2!

    Any suggestions? I attached a logfile.

    "Play" is not the same as "Read"

    I am thinking in terms of a data error in transferring the content which is something you will hardly notice when playing that DVD.

    Can we have a look at a scan with Nero's "Speed" please?

    Download Nero cd-dvd speed here:

    It's a free program. With Anydvd running in the background like usual, please 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 and needs to be exchanged--even if it plays fine.

    problem solved

    I downloaded the Nero cd-dvd speed program and yeah, there are some bad sectors on the disc. If I were to return the discs and get a whole new set do you think they would have the same problems since they were all burned together from the main company?

    You should return the discs for a replacement. No one can say for sure that the replacement will be 100% but if you spent money on the DVDs then you deserve to get what you paid for and a flawed DVD is not what you paid for.

    Thanks. I guess it's a hit and miss game.

    I had the same problems with backing up my set of band of brothers, it took me three returns to finally get a set where the second disc did not have bad sectors when run through nero cd-dvd speed program.
