Bad DVD

Post by Unibrowser » Sat Jul 20, 2019 4:34 am

I have 1 DVD that gets about 95% done and then fails with a medium error(disk read error). This happened with both MakeMKV and DVDfab. Is it possible to burn the DVD and then try ripping the burned copy? Or do you think it will give the same error? There are no visible scratches, it's a brand new disk only been played 1 time. I'm assuming is a bad press or something.

If you think about this, I'm sure you know the answer. Or with other words: Garbage in, Garbage out!

Well it plays just fine in my bluray player. From what I was told, MakeMKV requires a perfect disk in order to rip it. Who says Nero does in order to burn it?

Hardware players jumps over read errors and ignores the part. If you cannot create a "error free" copy, this error (or other errors) are also on the duplicate.
