[Resolved] DVD playback from disk works but can't rip
I have an odd issue I would like to get some assistance with:
I am trying to backup these DVDs I have. They contain commercials/infomercials we had made. We had a bunch of them duplicated at this company (small batch onto regular DVD-R). I can play back the DVDs no problem via Windows Media Player and Media Player Classic. But as soon as I rip the Video DVDs to hard disk the result is just useless with wrong play times and some of the DVDs even fail ripping. Since the DVDs play fine I have to assume the actual media is okay.
I read almost all the stickies and think I have all the info that might be needed:
1. Yes, I have AnyDVD 188.8.131.52 and CloneDVD2 184.108.40.206
3. AnyDVD states the following error:
VobSet 8 1 0 1177429 1177467 1177444
CloneDVD error is as per attached screenshot and log
5. Don't use anything like that
6. No problem burning, the problem is with the ripping
7. This is not a commercial DVD as purchased in the store, this is content that is ours, we own it. No region set, made in US, see #11
8. Latest firmware is installed for sure
9. not applicable
10. not applicable

12. Did that
13. No power issues, have a beautiful UPS system with plenty of juice, a 600W power supply only pulling about 250W
I did verify that the Region code is set correctly for my device. The device manager indicated that it is set to Region 1 - not sure why AnyDVD claims it is not set.
Did the company that duplicated the DVDs for us add some special something to not allow me to copy these? Any insight and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Try disabling AnyDVD and then open CloneDVD and go into the preferences and check the Use File System instead of internal I/O. Now try to copy the disc. Does it work? When done trying this go back into the settings and uncheck the setting I had you change in CloneDVD.
If what I wrote above does not work then still leave AnyDVD disabled and instead select Write Existing Data and use the original disc as your source.

I guess I made it harder than it needed to be. The DVDs did indeed not have any protection and I was able to simply drag the files onto my desktop and then work them over with CloneDVDmobile.
