DVD disc

By nhiep_nguyen ·
Hello,

I have a DVD that I can read without problem on my Home DVD player, but when played on a Computer internal DVD player it stops at one given chapter.
This happens on all Computer DVD pkayers.
When I attempt to look at the corresponding VOB file, the computer cannot read and give an error code that says cyclic redundant error.
Would help me please? I would like to be able to play that DVD on my computer.
Thank you in advance

Sounds like the DVD is copy protected, I'm not really up on the copy protections used in DVD's but do know they can prevent you from playing them on PC's. Have you tried other DVD player software?

Since your in the US it's a fairly safe bet it is copy protected, we don't have that problem in Canada as copy protection is agains't the law here, it infringes on our Private copying law.

You could also try ripping it with DVD decrypter & use Daemon tools to emulate it

Thank you, it is likely that it is protected.
Though I have tried DVDIdlePro which is supposed to allow protected DVD reading without success.
I rate unacceptable just to leave the question openm in case...

The above sounds about right about being copy protected.

If you are using Windows there is a program called Any DVD that may bypass the Copy Protection but without more information it's a bit hard to give you any more help.

Short of ripping the movie down and recording it for use on a computer drive I do not think there is much that can be done to help you out. A lot of the DVD ripping software like 123 have been outlawed in the US so they are trying hard to prevent DVDs being copied or even played on a computer. Incidentally the most likely culprit that the copy protection comes from is Sony as they have developed a series of measures to prevent DVDs being played on computer hardware.

I think you'll find that if it is encrypted with the new Sony encryption the only option that you'll have is to use a recording program in conjunction with Any DVD and copy it off to be able to play it on a computer DVD ROM. You can try DVD shrink available from

If its a new DVD and an original it should not matter whether you play it on your Computer DVD-ROM or your home DVD player. The copy protection should also not matter. The copy protection is to prevent making a copy and playing it not to stop you playing it legally on any player.

The cylic redundancy error normally points to a scratched or faulty DVD. If this is an illegally copied DVD it may have been burnt on poor quality media.

ie

A "CRC" error is most often caused by bad media - it could be any of the following:

1. A dirty disc,
2. A scratched disc
3. A poor quality disc (cheap media if it happens during the "Burn" section of your work)
4. A bad disc from the Mfgr.

Cleaning

Here are some other little "tricks" which may or may not help -

The "Magic cleaning" technique: Try cleaning your DVD discs. Yea, I know they're new and clean but do it anyway. Do it a few seconds before inserting it into your DVD tray, use a disc cleaner, eyeglass cleaning solution or 99% Isopropyl Alcohol and a soft cotton cloth and rub-a-dub, dub. As soon as you're finished, "Pop" it into your DVD tray and fire up your program

Begin by playing your DVD with your PC?s player. Play for two or three minutes then open your DVD Shrink, DVD X Copy or your weapon of choice - as soon as you begin your rip turn off your player so it doesn?t interfere. The playing before hand is only so that your ripping program can ?Find? your DVD.

To help with those small "Kiddie Scratches" on your DVD's -

Toothpaste w/Borax (Arm & Hammer may be added)
(Brasso metal polish may be used as a substitute for toothpaste)

Pledge
Glass

and the rest...

START:
1. Place the disc on a firm soft surface.
2.Apply a small amount of toothpaste with a small amount of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda to a clean, soft cotton cloth and apply to your DVD. Rubbing very firmly in even strokes from the center outwards towards the edge. Repeat 10 to 15 times. Do this over the entire disc turning the disc slowly in a circular manner, always going from the inside to the outer edge.

When Finished ?
3. clean it either with a commercial unit (available at "Radio Shack" OR your local electronics store) OR clean the disc thoroughly with a clean cotton cloth moistened with Isopropanol Alcohol, Contact lens cleaner OR in a bind, you may use some Windex (Windex has some additives, coloring and the like). Clean by using a firm even rubbing motion from the center outwards towards the edgeClean the disc thoroughly with a clean cotton cloth moistened with Isopropanol Alcohol, Contact lens cleaner OR in a bind use some Windex, using a firm even rubbing motion from the center outwards towards the edge.

NEXT:
4. Using a clean piece of cotton cloth, apply Pledge to the entire disc in the same manner as the toothpaste was applied above.

Attempt to play disc.
5. If the disc refuses to play, take 1 large 12oz. glass, add just 3 Ice cubes, too many ice cubes will "water down" the mixture rendering it unsuitable for usage, then add 70% Orange Juice and 30% Vodka. The contents are to be shaken, NOT STIRED. The glass's contents are to be liberally applied internally.


DVD Shrink is used to make an illegal copy of DVD's ( not to play them ) along with DVD Decrypter.

If you are making a legal copy always use high quality DVD media such as Ritek or Verbatim.

If it's an original legal copy you may want to take it back if it does not play on your computer.

Which software are you using try medial player ( latest version ) or nero.
