Hi to all you gurus,
I have a dvd of "The Princess and the frog" dual layer Disney.
It is very difficult to play and stops occasionally then continues.
It is not possible to copy this disk, which I need to do as I don't want to carry these dvd's about when traveling.
Do you know any one else that has had this type of problem?
I had a similar problem with a dvd about 2 years ago.
Yup it is me.
On the basis that the copy protection is the one where Disney have deliberately introduced a break (or breaks) in the track ...
from the command line ..... it will begin to copy until it meets a part of the disk that it cannot read, and fails.
That could indicate that it met with a break in the track, placed there deliberately to prevent apps from copying it. There may be more than one such break.
You can then use vobcopy
again, but this time with the -b
option using the location it previously stopped at, plus some small figure you reckon might get it to start after the break. Try again and if it meets another break do the same again.
This is a bit of a trial and error .... but with a little persistence you can get to start just at the main title and it should run through without further problems.
