I have DVD Shrink (latest) and I use it to make backups of (legally purchased) DVDs so the originals don't get damaged...
So far I haven't had any errors with anything, with the exception of a largely scratched disk once... until now
I tried to backup "Inside Man" and it gets to around 2-4% (entire non-compressed disk backup, naturally) but then gives me
DVD shrink has encountered an error and can not continue
Fail to read file E:\
Data Error (cyclic redundancy check)
I've searched around and it turns to either be a bad/scratched disk or a new security measure...
The disk is brand new with no scratches, finger prints or anything on it, and the movie played with no errors or bad frames (as far as I noticed) in DVD X Player (on computer) and on a sony DVD player (tv).
I've seen people try with success using DVD Decrypter but when i tried, I got errors once again...
so I'm fairly certain it's a security measure (seeing as the drive is only a few days old and plays/backs-up anything else fine)...
Any ideas?

Assuming the DVD is NOT damaged ...
Many DVDs deliberately have bad sectors ro prevent DVD Shrik from working.
Try http://www.1clickdvdcopy.com/
Works for me
But it's not free
All the best
