Approx. 5-10 minutes. Had the error appear first at 50%, then at 48% and 68% several times. Error says PT 18. Tried restarting the system, shutting down and restarting, uninstalling and reinstalling AnyDVD 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52, etc. etc. etc. Please help (please don't say disc is defective or drive is defective, etc. My new computer is less than a month old and so far I have successfully ripped a huge part of my collection - over 200 DVDs of all types - to my hard drive, so Been Der Done Dat). Any help deemed constructive will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
