When you try to copy Video Object (.vob) files from a DVD disk, you may receive one of the following error messages:
In Windows XP:
In Windows 2000:
Copy Protection Error - The read failed because the sector is encrypted.
In Windows 98:
The maximum number of sectors that may be stored in a single system has been exceeded.
Data Error reading Drive D: Abort, Retry, Ignore, Fail?
This issue may occur if you try to copy files from copy protected DVD disks.
To work around this issue, transfer these files to a hard disk for your personal use. To do so, you may consider obtaining a third-party .vob file that permits you to copy (RIP) DVD-based video files.
To discourage unauthorized usage, MPEG-2 video format is frequently encrypted and stored on DVD disks as .vob files.
