Unreadable DVD

Hi each.
I've encoutered an odd problem when trying to duplicate a DVD.

The disc is a DVD-R and as far as I'm aware there is no copy protecion on the disc. (I have AnyDVD Version 6.5.2.2 on running on my system so even if the disc is copy protected, it should copy.)

The disc copies the first few bup, ifo and vob files but stops dead at VTS_3_1.vob (The first large vob file.) The odd thing is, the disc shows a total size of 4.37GB when I hover the mouse over it but when I open the Video_TS folder it shows over 780 files totaling 415GB.

I have tried different approaches to copying the disc including direct file copy, DVD Shrink, VOB2MPG, AnyDVD's ripping function and Nero disc copy. I've tried all on these on 3 different drives and on Windows XP and Windows Vista. All of them fail at the same point.

I've checked the disc for scratches and other flaws but it looks fine.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Just tried imgburn and also ISObuster. Both failed to read the disc.

I think I'm just going to give up on it as it's already taken to much of my time.

Thank you both for your imput.

Thanks for the comment jasin00 but that's not it. You'd never get the files to compress that much. Not only that, the folder would show up as compressed. But it shows in explorer as as a standard Video_TS folder.

The files appear to repeat themselves several time over, as if they had been copied and pasted back into the same folder repeatedly and given an incrementally larger number for each file.

The odd thing is, the DVD plays without a problem.

Did you try coping it as an ISO file to the hard drive, then burning it back?
Try it with ImgBurn
