    I've just received some new DVDs from Amazon and I went about ripping them which lead me to an interesting problem.

    My Mac Mini can read these disks through Fairmount and DVD2OneX without seeing any bad sectors while my Late 2008 Macbook Pro sees hundreds of thousands from the same disk.

    This is interesting because an external DVD drive I have here also shows the same number of bad sectors from the disk on the Macbook Pro while the Mac Mini still shows 0.

    I suppose that is just an oddity with the structural copyright protection, but I've never seen anything like it.

    Note: The DVDs I am ripping are these: Desert Punk. :D

    Anyone experiencing a similar issue will just need to load the Apple DVD Player to resolve this. I thought it might have been the change in the chipsets (and therefor worth posting), but apparently it is a known "bug".

    Thanks for that tip. I was beating my head against my desk trying to figure out why I couldn't backup any DVDs on my new 2008 Aluminum MacBook.
