I know that I have had a simular problem and if I remember right, it always seem to happen when I had first used Nero for one project, closed it out, and then tried to use Roxio for another project. For example, in one session, I use Nero for recoding a DVD. Next I use DVD Shrink to compress the project. Then, for whatever reason I decide to use Roxio to burn the resulting DVD. I will get that some funky message regarding the operation or that the disc is not formatted or something.
However, if I shut down the computer and reboot BEFORE I use Roxio to burn, I don't have the error messages. It seems like there are some compatibility issues and the programs don't even have to be running at the same time.
So if you start with Roxio and don't use any other Multimedia program, it seems to be less errors. But if you use another program before Roxio in the same session, you can get some funky error messages.
If the problem only happens with that DVD, where the files are stored is not likely the problem. I'll also assume that the disc isn't a newer one from Sony or others that use ArCoSS encryption, which can cause all sorts of odd problems
Or you might try to rip it to your hard drive with DVDFab HD Decrypter, then process it with DVD Shrink to reduce the filesize. I would also recommend burning withImgBurn. That's all freeware, so little to lose except time. If you want to keep all the menus, etc., then you might look into DVD Rebuilder. It re-encodes, which takes a while, but the results are usually better. Also free.
Also Mr. JW52 i am afraid dat u have formated ur computer re- down load windows Internet 7.. you have not mention if the problem did exsist before... i am guessing as the was no such problem prevoiusly so i suggest to see if the drivers related to the operations are installed properly or not again most infortantly if the software you re using is it competibly with your OS in ur computer please check it too.. i recomend it asap... if the problem is not sorted out please feel free to get in touch... i genuenly think dat i can fix it... cheers!!

How to rip a DVD easily


DVDs contain folders and files which are specially developed for DVD players and not for computers.<br /> If you explore the DVD on your computer, you see on most DVDs the folders Video_TS and Audio_TS. The folder Audio_TS is on video DVDs empty. This folders is normally used for audio DVDs.<br /> If you open the folder Video_TS you see that the extensions of the files in it are .vob, .ifo and .bup. The .vob files are actually the .mpeg or video files and only these files contain video. The .ifo files contain information like scenes and time. The .bup files are backup files of the .ifo files. These files aren't relevant for computers.<br /> If you double click a .vob file and you do not have any DVD player installed on your computer, the computer says that it can not open the file. But there is a trick to do let your computer play this file.<br /> The trick to play this file is to copy the .vob files to a folder on your hard drive. The next thing you need to do is to change the file extension into .mpg.<br /> Do not change the name of the file but be sure you change the extension of it!<br /> If you copy the .vob file and you change the extension in .mpg, there is no guarantee that it works. This depends on the codecs you have installed on your computer. But often this trick will work.<br /> So what is the solution if the above doesn't work?

Mac DVD IFO to Droid X Converter-Rip DVD Movie to MP4 When playing DVD disc on...


Mac DVD IFO to Droid X Converter-Rip DVD Movie to MP4
When playing DVD disc on Mac, you may have a look at the disc folder like external drive. There are VIDEO_TS folder and AUDIO_TS folder, and several .ifo files in the VIDEO_TS folder. The IFO files include navigation info of the DVD movies like chapters and titles, which help media players to play the requested content like VOB in the folder.
Motorola Droid X, as the latest Verizon Android phone, includes 4.3-inch multi-touch screen, and plays videos with H.263, H.264, MPEG-4 as video codec and AAC, MP3, WAV, eAAC+, WMA v10, MIDI, AAC+ as audio codec. However, Motorola Droid X does not support directly import DVD IFO to play movies. Aunsoft Blu-ray Ripper for Mac is the recommended Mac DVD IFO to Droid X converter for you to convert DVD IFO to MP4, and transfer movies to Motorola Droid X. The Mac DVD IFO to Droid X converter also enables you to load DVD IFO from DVD-Video file structure folder on computer hard drive, and rip DVD movies with subtitles.

Follow the steps below, and you can play most of your DVD movies on Android phones like Motorola Droid X, HTC EVO 4G, Google Nexus One.
Step 1. Load DVD IFO to Aunsoft Blu-ray Ripper for Mac.
Insert DVD disc to the built-in DVD-Rom, run Aunsoft Blu-ray Ripper for Mac as the best DVD IFO to Droid X converter on Mac Leopard and Snow Leopard. Then Click the "IFO/ISO" button and choose the DVD from DEVICE, open the VIDEO_TS folder to find IFO files. Here I choose VIDEO_TS.IFO for conversion.
Step 2. Choose Motorola Droid X MP4 format.
Click the "Format" option and choose Android > Motorola Droid (X) H.264 Video(*.mp4), and the DVD IFO to Droid X converter will transcode DVD movie to MP4 for playback on Droid X.

Step 3. Choose subtitle for Droid X video. (optional)
Click the "Subtitle" option to choose the preferred subtitle language for Droid X MP4 video. Please note that there is only subtitle for main movie on most DVD discs.
Step 4. Convert DVD IFO to MP4 for Droid X.
Click the convert button under the preview window, and the conversion from DVD IFO to Droid X MP4 starts immediately.
Wait for a while, and then you can transfer DVD movies to Motorola Droid X and enjoy videos with subtitles.
Tips:
1. To choose the right IFO for conversion, you may need to load each IFO several times. Generally speaking, the VTS_01_0.IFO is the main movie and other IFO files as copyright notice, extras and so on. You can also load the entire DVD disc or DVD folder by clicking the "BD/DVD Folder" button.
2. If you have other videos in .mkv, .mts, .avi, .mov formats, you can use Aunsoft Blu-ray Video Converter Ultimate as the Mac video converter for Droid X.

How to get 100% success DVD-Video Recovery with IsoBuster Pro


So the deal is you have a DVD-Video that you created and you want to make a backup copy OR your DVD Player skips on playback due to a surface defect or deep scratch, you have already tried to clean and repair it and still it wont work, check out my tip on how best to do this HERE

The quickest method is to create an ISO image using one of the top applications like ImageBurn or CloneDVD or DVDShrink the thing is al three fail on CRC or read errors on either the IFO BUP or VOB files so what can you do?

Using ImageBurn my personal favourite and selecting the VSO Patin Couffin Driver with a low read speed of x2.4 from the I/O settings interface and the default settings it will cope similar to Alcohol 52% FE and create the ISO upto the point where the first bad sector is then try to finish the ISO, it also tells you how many sectors are being scanned and the number of bytes in real time;

9d613f0.jpg


Using DVD Shrink pulls an immediate Cyclic Redundancy Error on the D: drive where the DVD-Video is inserted

fbc9545.jpg

CloneDVD pulls on IFO read error on VTS_04_0.IFO as this is a major requirement for successful DVD navigation it contains important navigational information, such as where a video chapter begins, and where audio and subtitle streams exist within the movie (VOB) file.

IFO files are not encrypted but without it this software can't correctly re-author a new DVD video using this method, the BUP file in VTS_03_0 is not a problem as it is just a backup of the IFO and this file is fine in this case, so only this one error is thrown up.

5801a65.jpg

Alcohol 52% FE will attempt to create it native MDS image file format and as lon as you check skip read errors and or use data precision management then it might work the main benefit is it will log each sector error and create a graph to show where the errors are in relation to the total number of sectors.

513cd6f.jpg


AnyDVD will rip any DVD, go figure, whether it be CSS or NOT if there is an IFO issue it will throw this error, not much help to us with a damaged DVD there then

672c6d1.jpg

SO WHAT CAN YOU DO THEN READ ON !!!

IsoBuster v2.7.0.0 is to the rescue, in the Professional mode you can extract the VIDEO_TS folder from the File menu it will scan the DVD for errors and then give you a list of the files that have Unreadable Sectors, you don't need the AUDIO_TS folder unless you will be using older standalone DVD players to view the result, its also in v2.8 Beta HERE on Filehippo it costs $29.95 (£20) an well worth the money.

0bbbde3.jpg

If you select insert Dummy and Apply always on the first sector that has problems then it will do this in this case at 42% for all subsequent bad sectors through the 100% complete 21 file extraction.

0d977ed.jpg

NOTE: This may take upto 4 hours depending upon the number of bad sectors within the files until finally it finishes with a full list of recovered files in this case original scan found 2 files a BUP and an IFO from different VOBs

f6267d4.jpg

The final result shows 2 extra VOB read errors withing the two VideoTitleSets (VTS) linked to the IFO and BUP files, into which IsoBuster has added dummy sectors to make complete files that will now play.

If you wish to then check the extracted files within the VIDEO_TS folder then use DVD Shrink it will scan all files very fast and you will see that the read errors are now GONE !!

7b91a05.jpg


SPECIAL NOTE:

In this scan and extraction there is a complete BUP (IFO BackUP) file for VTS_04_0.IFO as the BUP is an exact copy of the IFO and is good then just copy this good BUP and rename it as the IFO in place of the recovered IFO this will improve you playback for that Video Title Set.

The opposite can be one for VTS_03_0.IFO that had an unreadable BUP file just create a new BUP from the good IFO, this will help if the IFO ever becomes unreadable on the new DVD that you want to create.

You can apply this method to CSS encrypted DVD content using Slysoft's AnyDVD, but only if you own a licensed copy of the original to recover information from a badly scratched DVD-Video
