    I wanted a cheap and convenient way of converting all of my old VHS tapes, particularly old camcorder stuff, to DVD so I bought the Liteon 5001 for £150 from Currys.

    The two machines are connected simply scart to scart and I have had reasonably good results.

    However, when I try to copy the files on the DVD to my hard drive for editing, I get a "cyclic redundancy" error every time.

    Is it me or the Liton?

    Rasczak,

    thanks for the help but still no joy.

    I am getting 'I/O Error' messages with several of the _VOB files although some have transferred OK.

    Initial burning was at HQ setting and I've tried a variety of discs.

    The strange thing is that the discs read OK on my Pioneer 656 albeit with the odd pause.

    Return the Liteon?

    Cheers,

    Keith

    Rasczak,

    once again thanks, have downloaded trial version and got 'Streaming Error'.

    I think the options are running out. Incidentally, have just noticed someone asking the same question in another thread although in this instance they're simply asking how to do it, not solve a problem.

    i was the person who posted the thread.i have tried dvd decrypter and got no where.all i want to do is copy my dvd+rw to dvd+/- r so i can free up my rw discs.does anyone know how to write the rw files to +/- dvd r discs?what software etc you use.also i saw somewhere that you can make only 1 copy to dvd+rw/r discs,is this why i cannot copy the rw disc,due to copyright laws? i use clone dvd with anydvd for backups of dvds for my boy of 7yrs as he could damage the originals.neither of these copy the files i had written with the liteon 5001 recorder.i apreciate if anyone can shine any light on this subject.

    think i might have cracked it!--- you can't rearange/modify the written disc structure not even with dvd decrypter/dvd shrink-clone doesn't even recognise the media structure due to the properties of the disc.so i tried 'nti cd/dvd maker and used copy disc,and it did,you probably can even use pinnicle or nero to as long as you copy the whole disk.so anything written on the liteon 5001/ or 05 you will have to copy the whole disk,so remember to rename the programs written on the disk before copying.
