Nero Unrecoverable read error

  Boy Zone 22:07 16 Aug 2005


I am having some problems copying my own family DVD's.
I'm using Nero 6, and when I try to copy, I keep getting Unrecoverable read errors messages.
I did try the trial "Any DVD" copying, and this works but NOT nero.
Can you please advise?

i dont use nero for "backing up" my kids dvd's, i use dvdshrink, its faster and will shrink the existing files to fit on a standard 4.3gig dvd without loss of noticible quality.

give it a try, its free.

I downloaded DVD Shrink last week, just do a Google search to find the download sites. There are quite a number,and some of them try to charge you for the download! Find a free site and make sure you download Version 3.2.

I think this is nero's copyprotect feature at work it wont let you copy protected dvd's.That is if they are protected.

I have just tried copying the DVD using my DVD writer as the sauce and creating an image, and it works OK, but not if I use the DVD ROM. I did the same on a second PC and the same occured. It can't be that both DVD Roms are faulty, as the DVD will Play on both.

Sounds like your problem is caused by you trying to "copy-on-the-fly" if creating an image then burning works.To resolve this would require your putting the DVD-ROM on one IDE channel,and the other device on the second IDE channel.There might then be the problem of the HDD data being slowed(although I never noticed any real performance hit when I tried it)
