Or you might try re-installing a DVD decorder. That sounds more likely then a dirty disk.

I would try first washing the DVD. Use dishwashing liquid and hot water, with only your hands, and use side-to-side motions to move the soap around the underside of the disc, never 'with' the grain of the data grooves. When finished, rinse the disc thoroughly, and pat it dry with a clean paper towel or other lint-free cloth. When dry, try it again.

Hope this will FixYa!!!

How do I get past installation when I get a cyclic redundancy error? Using Windows Vista


Hello ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Try this....

The cyclic redundancy check, or "CRC" error, indicates a bad spot on your hard drive. The fact that you're seeing it when you try to copy a file indicates that the bad spot may be within the file itself.
We need to verify that and then we need to try to recovery your file and repair your hard drive.
First, let's make sure that the problem is actually with the file you're copying since it's equally likely that the problem is with the location you're copying too. This is easy. Fire up a Command Prompt window, and then copy the file to NUL:
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C:\>CD (to wherever the file is located)

C:\wherever>copy Outlook.pst NUL
1 file(s) copied.
This reads the entire file by copying it "nowhere". If this succeeds, the problem is not actually with the file itself, but the location you were trying to copy it to. My recommendation would be to copy it to a different disk entirely, or a different machine on your local network.
If this copy fails, then we've confirmed that the bad sector on your hard disk is actually being used by some portion of your file.
Now that we've confirmed that the problem is in fact in the file itself, we need to make as best a copy of it as we can, somewhere else. This sets a position of "it can't get any worse than this". Some data within the file may be lost, but you'll have copied as much as possible before the recovery efforts.
Once again, we want to copy the file to some different hard disk, or some other machine on your local network. And once again we need to do this within the command prompt:
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C:\>CD (to wherever the file is located)

C:\wherever>xcopy /c Outlook.pst D:
1 file(s) copied.
Two important things to note here: we've used the xcopy (for eXtended copy) command, and we've added the"/C" switch which keeps copying even if errors are encountered. As you've already experienced, the default behavior of both COPY and XCOPY is to stop if an error occurs.
Now that we've got a "no worse than" backup copy, we can start attempting to repair the disk.

SpinRite is a hard drive recovery and maintenance program. When you run it, it will perform a lengthy and exhaustive analysis of your hard disk without modifying its contents. Exactly how it does what it does is probably too technical and lengthy for this space, but one of the most important things that it does is simply this:
If a bad sector can be recovered, SpinRite will recover it."My recommendation would be to copy it to a different disk entirely, or a different machine on your local network."And many, though of course not all, bad sectors can be recovered using SpinRite.
The net result is that after running SpinRite on the drive, it will either recover the sectors and you'll have a good, working hard disk once again, or it won't - and you'll know with some confidence that the disk cannot be recovered.
In the first case, if SpinRite is actually able to recover the sector for you, then unless SpinRite tells you otherwise, I'd then happily reboot and continue using the hard drive.
If SpinRite is unable to recover some data on your hard drive, I would first reboot into Windows and, as we did above, make another copy of the file. While SpinRite may not have recovered all the bad sectors on your hard drive, it could have repaired some, and those might have been the ones causing the problem with the file you're trying to access. I would not overwrite our first "no worse than" copy, but I would save this new file, as a kind of "possibly better" copy. And then I'd plan on replacing the drive.

If you're not up for spending the money for SpinRite, then Window's own CHKDSK utility is the next best thing. It's not as thorough, and it doesn't perform the same deep analysis and recovery as SpinRite, but it can, in fact, recover from some types of hard disk failures.
Once again, in the Command Prompt:
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C:\>CHKDSK /R
The "/R" parameter indicates that CHKDSK should check for errors and repair them as best it can.
Important: if this is your system drive (most often C:), this command will not actually run the operation immediately, but will schedule it for the next reboot. You'll need to reboot to actually make it happen.
After it's done, try making another copy of the file. If it doesn't work, then obviously CHKDSK wasn't able to repair the error you're experiencing. If it does, however, save that copy as a possibly fixed copy of your file.
Even if CHKDSK does repair the problem, I'm actually torn on how much to continue to trust the hard disk. You could still experience future failures.
Though I suppose that's true for any hard disk, after any utility is used. Or not.

At this point, if none of the steps above have repaired the bad sector or otherwise recovered your file, you're just a little bit screwed.
It's now time to work with the best-effort file that you saved earlier and, depending on what kind of file it is, try to recover the contents. In your example, an Outlook PST file, that means running scanpst on it, which will scan the contents of the file and attempt to recover what it can. There most likely will be data loss. Sometimes a lot of data loss. That's why I encourage you to never run utilities like scanpst on your only copy of the file. You always want the original to go back to in case there's something else in it that you can recover manually.
For other types of files and applications, it'll depend entirely on the specifics of that application as to how it will deal with a partially corrupt file, and whether or not it can be repaired.

And that brings me to my last point.
If this was your only copy of the file - if you would have suffered significant data loss had this file become corrupt - you haven't been backing up.
Start.
This was a wake-up call. Even if we successfully recovered your file, you should be very scared.
Start backing up your important data. Now.
The next time there's a problem, you may not be as lucky.

Pinnacle DVD's won't play in DVD players


The region code of your stand alone player is different from the region code on the disk. To resolve this Pinnacle should have an info tool that will allow you to check the region code. If not Nero has this tool available with thier software. You should be able to download it @www.download.com. Also most newer DVD players only read specific data types. For instance, you cant use DVD-RW in a player that only reads DVD-R. So make sure you are using disks that are compatible with your DVD player.

We directly cannot copy a file from hard drive to DVD, we need a DVD writer to burn it on the DVD disk. Hard drive is a removeable device and we can read and write data as we need but DVD is a non-removeable disk and we can only write it for once, the process of writing or copying file to the DVD through a DVD-writer is called burning.

There are many different kinds of DVD’s, and knowing what kind you would like to copy is important before making the decision to burn. The process used to burn DVD’s usually depends on the kind of DVD but three common types are used the most when burning. They are: Burning Data DVD’s, Storing Multimedia Files on a DVD, and burning Commercial DVD’s. We’ll take a look at these three methods below.

Burning Data to DVD’s
The easiest way to burn DVD’s is by copying everyday normal data. This includes ordinary files like documents, spreadsheets, and database files and is the easiest method because no special decryption software or regionally specific encoding is needed. Any computer with a DVD drive will easily play these burned DVD’s.
It is a good idea to download some of the multiple free DVD burning programs available to test them out. You may also want to check out commercial DVD burning software available for purchase. Most newly purchased computers already come with a DVD burner and burning software installed and ready to use. All you have to do is start the DVD burning software, make sure to select DATA DVD as the type of DVD to be burned, then follow the prompts. A full length DVD contains around 4.7GB of data and can be burned in around 20 minutes with an average DVD burner. Higher speed DVD burners will be able to burn your data much more quickly.

Burning Multimedia Files to DVD’s
While the process of burning audio and video (multimedia) files to a DVD is basically the same as burning data DVD’s, multimedia DVD’s require additional thought before copying. This is because you will most likely want to add some extra features when burning a precious wedding video or converting old VHS tapes to a friendlier and longer lasting format.

The DVD authoring tools available today make burning multimedia DVD’s with a professional touch a breeze. Convenient features like Chapters (to skip to a specific section of longer videos), Menu pages (perfect for a wedding video), and Titles (to index multiple TV shows or videos already stored on your computer) gives everyone the ability to burn polished DVD’s easily. Subtitles that you create yourself can even be added by some DVD burning software and Digital Rights Management (DRM) may also be available. DRM allows you to create commercial grade videos that are tough for others to easily copy to another DVD.

Burning Commercial DVD’s
Burning copies of commercial DVD’s is one of the primary uses of DVD burners and is enjoyed by many people who own them. While it may not be illegal to burn copyrighted material for your own use, in most areas of the world it is illegal to make copies of commercial DVD’s to sell or give away to others. You can still burn copyrighted material, including commercial DVD’s, if the burned copy is for personal use. Some uses may include creating a DVD archive or backup, or having an extra copy available for use in the computer or car’s DVD player.

A commercial DVD can be copied by many tools, but decoding software specifically designed to remove (”crack”) digital rights management will be needed in addition to a regular DVD burner and DVD burning software. Besides copying the commercial DVD’s data and decoding any digital rights management, it is also important to note that most of the time you will need to shrink the file first.

The majority of commercial DVD’s hold between 7 and 8.4GB worth of data and are known as dual layer DVD’s. A normal blank DVD will hold 4.7GB of data, which means the larger amount of data on a commercial DVD needs to be compressed before it will fit on a blank DVD. After a commercial DVD has been cracked and the files compressed, ordinary DVD burning software can be used to burn the new DVD. Simply start your favorite DVD burning program then follow the prompts.

Since the process of copying commercial DVD’s can seem daunting to someone doing it for the first time, several companies have developed suites of DVD copying programs that simplify the process. These software tools will usually crack and decode the DVD, compress the files small enough to fit on a blank DVD, and can even add extra features before burning everything onto a normal DVD.

Now that you know how to burn DVD’s, you’re well on your way to burning your first one. Start by checking out free DVD burning programs as mentioned earlier, or just download one and jump right in. Remember to bookmark this article as reference should you run into any problems.

Have fun and happy DVD burning!

Best Regards

DVD s to HD


Hi!

Its not that easy as is sounds to do that.
First of all there is probably some protection on the dvd that wont allow you to copy it, therefor you need to crack that protection

Second, you need to remake that dvd to an "img" file, the dvd contains two folders as it is now, one called Audio TS and one called Video Ts, you need to remake those to an IMG file, that you can do in Nero

Third, you need a program to mount up the IMG file so you can play it, for that you need a program like Deamon Tools or any similiar program.

So if you manage to do all above, every time you going to play that dvd you must mount it in Deamon ( or any similiar program), you cant just copy it and press play and watch it.
The hard thing is to crack the protection on a dvd since there is so many diferent of them out there.

Good luck
Nic
