Error caused by faulty DVD-rom drive?

OK...since X decided to up and close the other thread...

I've been having an increased # of errors in trying to copy some LEGITIMATE DVD's (not copywrighted material) where I'm getting an error: cyclic redundancy error. The dvd will play fine in the players. And now, I had my work try and copy it and it copied fine. Am I wrong in thinking that a new burner wouldn't cause these problems?

Just curious...

What program are you using to copy? Are they video only discs? [Let's not get into this type of software]

I've tried going through windows explorer. They both fail. I've also tried to make a straight copy through Nero. Dead.

But they did it with no problem here at work.

I've also tried to rip DVD/vob files from a ROM disc and they won't work...but any other smaller type file will work. Again, it doesn't happen all the time with all discs...only some...and it's consistant.

Again, this is NOT a commercial DVD. This is a HOME MADE DVD...lest any admins with itchy trigger fingers read this.

I'm strongly considering closing a thread containing any discussion of ripping software that defeats copy protection. You can prevent that.

Then you may as well close it. What ripping software doesn't defeat it?

All sorts. Many of the programs that were designed to defeat copy protection went to solely disc copying of unprotected material after court decisions went against those types of products. Nero Recode will copy unprotected material but not protected material.

But again...this has NOTHING TO DO WITH COPYWRIGHTED MATERIAL!

all i'm asking is if this type of error can be caused by the actual burner as opposed to the media.
And Nero doesn't defeat it.

My goodness...the problem has nothing to do with anything illegal. Aren't we being a little overzealous here? i don't always like posting to dvdrhelp because there's SO much information that sometimes little questions like this get avoided. I figured here might help me to get a quicker and more concise answer.

Easy. Put the drive in your work computer. If it fails there it's the drive if it works it's something in your computer.

That's why it sucks to try to ask any question here about burning video to DVD's or questions about DVD burners because they are so paranoid that you might use the knowledge to copy a DVD. When that particlular info could be found on google in 5 seconds. So they lock a thread when anyone talks about a program that is duel use.

I already told you there are programs that aren't "dual use" that will accomplish the same thing. You were the person who originally brought up the program that is primarily used to defeat copy protection. So much so, the product has been shut down due to lawsuits against it.

Just take a look at the number of threads in here talking about burning video to DVD. It doesn't suck so bad when people keep the discussions to legal activity.

If you can't handle the way moderating is being done here you don't need to participate in the discussions.

I wish it were that simple. The only DVD drive we have in our company is in the IT dept and i'm not really friends with them.
