Thread: DVD with read errors

  1. #1

    Default DVD with read errors

    Is there any reading-tool such as alcohol that can read DVDs with read errors? Alcohol can't read those DVDs...
    any suggestion (bw-images cannot be mounted with d-tools, that can't be the solution)?

    BW5 dvd image problem will be fixed in next dtools. You can also try dvd decryptor in iso mode.

    can read-errors be in an ISO-file?

    if you got a program that is capable of replacing them with dummy 'erroneous' sectors, ... yeah. sure. why not?

    hey, DVD's are not that different from CD's...

    Afaik, a dvd iso can only store in 2048 bytes/sector. So it wouldn't be able to hold error info.

    wouldn't there be a possibility to just simulate/emulate this with a plain ISO image??

    (i never used ISO images for anything with errors that were to be respected...)

    ok so ISOs cannot store errors.
    but do you know any tool which can create images of defect DVDs?
    (may sound silly. but there aren't read errors due to a copy protection, the DVD is simply nearly broken)

    Alcohol can't do that, Blindwrite-large-DVD-images cannot be mounted with d-tools... any other program?

    MDS format can hold this information and it can be used by virtual drive.
    But such images are not yet produced - it is true.

    Maybe DVD X Rescue is what you're searching for.
    Just google it!
