Problems with "Capote"?

    Hi all,

    Long time user of AnyDVD. It has never failed me, except for now. I thought I had a bad copy of the Capote DVD, so I returned it and got another--the "failed to read" errors began at the same sector!

    AnyDVD has "found & removed" for the following:
    • CSS
    • structural copy protection (Arccos, Puppetlock)
    • invalid VOBUs
    • 3 bad sector protections

    Yet I'm still getting read errors in CloneCD. Is anyone else having problems with the Capote DVD? US version. I have a Plextor 716A drive, and, again, I've never run into a DVD I couldn't read.

    Thank you,

    Here is what AnyDVD says for the disc:

    And here is what CloneCD says:

    Generally, failed to read sectors means a bad disc. I have heard of people having to return 2-3 before they got a good one. They can come in bunches just like our blank media can.

    This is the 2nd disc, and I'll try a 3rd. I mainly wanted to see if anyone else was having trouble!

    I never did have a problem with the disc. I can't remember what AnyDVD said for it, but no problems here.

    Well, I'm giving up. Same problem with the third version of the disc. :confused:

    You're probably running into a bunch of bad discs. However, you can send the .ifos into Slysoft for them to take a look at:

    Mmk, we'll see. I sent the email off just now.

    I noticed you canceled reading the discs. Have you ever just let Clonecd complete, and then check to see if the backups don't work?

    No, I never did let the read finish. I've had 2 other movies with errors:

    First one: exchanged it, 2nd copy was fine
    Second one: let the read finish (there were only a few bad sectors) and burned the backup. There was corruption/skipping on playback.

    Since this one had many, many more read errors (and looked like it was going to take hours to read) I aborted, assuming the resulting backup would be useless.

    That has nothing to do with Anydvd.
    Read this

    It's probably just going to take awhile to read.

    Agreed, I just thought I might see the same thing when backing up another DVD with read errors. That DVD that I'm talking about had a little (but deep) scratch, so I'm guessing there's no way the information encoded in that area made it to the .DVD file, and thus there were gaps and partial frames burned into the backup media. I might have been using terminology loosely (corruption/skipping on playback) - the copy was fine, but the source was bad.


    With Capote, it was just the first time I'd seen many of those copy protection schemes, so I thought perhaps one of them was "faking" read errors, and would lead to the same results.

    Anyway, if you guys have heard of "batches" of bad DVDs, I'll take your word for it. It's not the end of the world if I can't backup 1 DVD, I just wanted to make sure I hadn't run into something AnyDVD couldn't handle.

    There's a new version of Anydvd out. You may want to try it:

    If you're still have issues you may want to send the ifos to Slysoft and mention you're having problems with Clonecd and that title.
    But there's probably an issue with the source disc you're using.

    I'm curious. If your backing up a DVD shouldn't you be using CloneDVD instead of CloneCD?
