    I have been given a burned DVD from someone and wanted to copy it. I can get about 3/4 through the copy and then Roxio comes up with a disc error. The same happened if I try to do an image of the disc - although it gets to about 90% with that.

    Is there any way I can copy this disc?

    I can't see a setting within Roxio for that - any ideas? Your suggestion makes sense though.

    I don't know how - but I've managed to copy it. Can't offer a solution I'm afraid.

    cool, i use nero which has the ignore errors checkbox
    i also use dvdshrink to copy dvd's
    i'm glad you worked yours out
    what did you do different? or was it just a matter of restarting and trying again?
