Copying Movies from DVD has always been a lick and we keep facing different kinds of problem. There are various softwares like DVD Shrink, DVD Decryptor etc with which we can actually copy our DVD's to our HDD even if there is a copy protection lock. There are softwares like AnyDVD which are specifically developed just to break the copy protection in DVD's. But even then we do face problems some times in copying DVD as we get errors like "Unrecovered Read Error" or " Data cannot be read" etc. This is because companies making DVD movies make their DVD in such a way that if you ever want to copy it, your DVD ROM will get stuck in a particular area of the DVD which it wont be able to read and therefore gives a data read error. As these areas are blank, you dont miss any movie when you just want to watch the movie. To overcome this, I just discovered a very simple procedure to bypass all this problems and have success with every single DVD. Mind You that if there are lot of Dummy Sectors inserted by the DVD companies, the following procedure may take a lot of time, but be sure it will be successful. Incase if you want to save time, there is one more procedure to do so.

Remember to check the box with the "Ignore Read Error" option. Now after your DVD Image creation process in complete, you are free to use any software that you wish to, may that be DVD Decryptor, DVD Shrink, Nero Recode etc... Thats it... Now feel free to compress, copy or anything that you want to do with the movie...
