View Full Version : DVDbackup copying problem

Oct 28, 2003, 07:30 PM
Here is my question. I am currently trying to copy my copies of the Royal Tenenbaums and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, but DVD Backup is giving me this error or sorts saying that it won't copy. It will copy all but one VOB file. They are both around VOB1_3 and VOB 1_5. I was just wondering if it still is possible to copy these DVDs or is it more encryption that won't allow us to copy them.

You can copy them. Start playing them in OSX's DVD Player then as the movie starts close the DVD Player. DVDBackup should then work.

I have done that, I have followed all the instructions to make the copy. Most of the files copy, but only one or two files do not. TheDVD does skip in parts, would that be any problem. Would the laser not be reading that material, which in turn prohibit me from getting data from the disc? Just a thought.

When you do DVD Backup, there should be only one or two Video TS files that you should extract to burn. Everything else is unimportant.

I don't think you understand what I am saying. I copy the DVD, which has a lot of VOB files, but one or two VOB files don't copy. I don't think its an encryption thing. I think the disc might be messed up.

try cleaning the DVD with the proper cloth/solution.. sometimes there's a small speck that prevents the file from being copied correctly.

otherwise, i'd suggest using OSex.
