I keep getting bad sector on several disc that I ripped with Mac the ripper. I ripped the same disc on my PC with DVD decrypter and have no problem with it. I reall believe it's the software problem and I have the latest software installed on mac. What any other freeware for mac out there that is similiar to Mac the ripper?
Thanks

Some of the newer DVDs have intentionally put bad sectors that DVD players will skip and computers will choke on. For what it's worth I never had any problem playing the ripped files, even with sector errors.

I kind of ignore the message, but when I try to burn it with toast 7 it gave me an error saying that it failed re-encoding or something like that.

I decrypt it with with mactheripper 3.0 and then I encode it with DVD2ONEX. I have never failed into copying a DVD that way, except if the disk is really scratched.

I'm not sure that there is any other freeware out there like MacTheRipper.

I had the bad sector problem backing up a couple of my DVDs a while ago using MacTheRipper 2.6.6 but the MacTheRipper 3 sorted it out.

I will have to download Version 3 then. I thought I had the latest version already. That's the only version I found when search. Could someone post the link.
Thanks

I was having similar issues but there were lots and lots of bad sectors. I needed to buy a DVD burner since I only had a DVD reader. Since swapping DVD drives, I've never had any bad sectors. Perhaps my reader was old and slow.
