Wasn't sure where to put this question, but I'm pulling my hair out over it.
I have a number of films stored on external harddrives as VIDEO_TS files. A few months ago I was watching Rohmer's La Collectioneuse with Mac DVD Player and the image suddenly froze. I tried again after restarting player, same thing, scanning through the film it reachs a particular point then freezes, usually crashing the player.
Next I tried VLC, same thing in same spot, always crashes the player.
Lastly, I played the VOB file in VLC. As soon as it reached that point the image freezes, the dot in the bar marking the film's place scrolls along for about 7 minutes of film time, then resumes. The Player doesn't crashed.
I have begun to look at other films on this drive [Elements 1tB] and on other drives [Verbatim 1tB]. I have already found several films on different harddrives displaying the same problem. It's never in exactly the same spot, can vary in length, but is essentially the same sort of problem.
I have surface scanned the drives using TechTool Pro, comes back clean.
I ripped all of the films using Mac the Ripper.
So. My question(s):
1. If anyone knows exactly what this is, has ecountered it themselves, then obviously, HELP!
2. Is there any software that can test VIDEO_TS files and tell me exacxtly what sort of a corruption there might be, if any at all?
3. Anyother ideas? What am I missing? This is killing me.
Thanks to everyone.
