Error: Failed to read file "F:\"

Postby samo_ott » Sat Nov 04, 2006 7:21 am

I get this error on the occasional dvd I'm trying to back up. I looked thru the forum but did not see a previous similar question.

In a windows dialog box:

"DVD Shrink encountered an error and cannot continue
Failed to read file "F:\"
Data error (cyclic redundancy check)."

Does anyone have any ideas? Is this one of the discs that dvd shrink can not backup? thx...

Check the sticky at the top of the forum, "Read before posting", it has your answer.

The error can mean:
1. The disc has protection that DVDShrink on its own cannot overcome. (Use DVDFab first)

2. The disc is damaged.
