Error copying DVD but plays fine-Any help?

  buel 08:21 06 Feb 2010

i have a home made (no encryption)DIY DVD that plays the both chapters, both around 90minutes long, absolutely fine but i cant copy it at all, no matter what software i try (Nero 9, DVD shrink, DVD decrypter), it copies the first chapter fine but will only copy 12minutes of the second chapter...please has anyone got any advice on this?

Shrink is very good and methinks perhapsyouare mising somethingn.You say 2 chpters but do you mean Titles. Try this open the dvd in shrink choose reauthorn and then in the right hand pane you should have title 1 title2 drag themover to the left hand pane and check their respective sizes. If it plays allright its not the burner at fault and as shrink only reads and authors ?

Hi there, i did what you said and the first title i was able to drag across fine but the second one stopped 9% and then i got the message 'DVD Shrink encountered an error and cannot continue. Failed to to read file E:/ Data error (cycle redundandcy check)'

Any other ideas please?
The DVD plays both titles fine but just wont copy!

Download CDCHECK (trial version free), put your DVD in the drive and select 'Recover'. and select where you want it saved on your harddrive.

This will then copy it 'byte by byte' from the DVD to the harddrive.If it encounters any erors it will try to recover them and let you know what is happening.
After that just burn it to a new DVD

Hi there, CDCHECK seems a great program but it cant seem to get the data off this dvd, i just dont understand why it can play and yet struggles to be copied!
I wonder is there any software that is able to 'copy' the DVD as it plays or 'on the fly' i believe the phrase is?

possibly scratches,try a clean or a different machine.different burners have different scratch tolerences.also try isobuster
