I recently backed up some media files to a DVDRW before formatting my hard drive. When the backup was complete, I tried playing a few arbitrary songs from the disc to check that everything was ok.
Now when I try to restore them, I get CRC errors for most of the files. However, I can still open them in media player and play them and there are no corruptions. So to me it seems the copy process is just halted because the CRC check failed, but the file is still fine.
What I'm trying to find is a way to force them to copy to my hard drive.
-a couple "file copying" programs hoping that they would ignore errors like that but they didn't work.
-using a different DVD ROM, still same problem.
-booting up with Knoppix, hoping that maybe linux would either copy the files anyway or give me an option to copy anyway, but it didnt.
-making an image of the disc with CloneCD and then using Daemon Tools to read the image, but I get "parameter incorrect" errors after the first 20 or 30 files.
Hopefully someone out there knows a way around this.
Thanks a lot,
