R2 DVD suddenly has "No Data"

Postby Kazemon15 » Tue Dec 10, 2013 7:11 pm

Hello, Im not sure what's going on here...but I opened one of my Japanese boxsets (a boxset I haven't ripped for a few years) and my computer couldn't read it. I check the properties of the disc and my computer acts like there's no disc in the DVD drive at all....so I pop it into my region free DVD player, the player says "No Disc." They played perfectly fine before and I have ripped them before.

Does anyone know what's going on? It happened to the entire boxset (Reborn Bullet Boxset, 8 discs, episodes 1-33). All 8 discs say the same thing... I popped in my other Boxsets, they play fine. I also noticed it started on my Reborn Varia singles as well, most specifically, DVD Battle 6 is the same way. I really hope these DVDs didn't become defective. Is there anyway to save them?

Thanks.

I would say check near the center of the disc for cracks or disc rot, it is possible for discs to go bad.

I researched disc rot and it doesn't seem like my DVDs have that. As for scratches, there are no scratches at all. I've only ripped them once before and then put them away. What else do you think could be wrong? Sorry for the late reply. life caught up and thanks for replying.

Aside from checking to see if the disc is warped, rotted, cracked, scratched, and having tired it in multiple drives, I'm not sure what else you can try to look for. It's not entirely impossible for a disc to "lose data", but it is extremely rare and is usually the result of manufacturing defects.
