[Fixed] DVD Backup Freezes at 99% and won't Finish

Sometimes when you need create a DVD backup, everything works like a charm until you reach to the last step - it gets stuck at 99%, 100%, some other precentages and will never finish. This is really frustrating, but the problem is quite common among DVD backup software:

-- I encounter a problem with my favorite DVD Decrypter when copying a DVD to an external drive. It's been going for about 6 hours now and the DVD backup gets stuck at 99%. It says that there is 0 bits in the output file and the freezes won't go.

-- I use AnyDVD to backup DVD to put whatever movies on my son's iPad to avoid scatches. Yesterday when I put both Stuart Little and Wreck It Ralph on his iPad, I have problems with Wreck it Ralph with the DVD backup freezes at approximately 56 min or displays "not responding" at 99%. I have tried to rip for 5 times on 2 different computers but the result is the same.

-- I need to copy DVD to MP4 using DVDFab (9.3.1.2) but the DVDFab hangs when ripping episode discs @100%. No crash, just hangs. Attempted with all GPU Codecs disabled and Lightning Shrink Decoding off - Same result. Attempted one episode per session, same result.

-- My DVD Shrink 3.2 (on 2 computers running Windows 7) gets stuck when analyzing at 47% so it never reaches the point of ripping. It says "DVD Shrink encountered an error and cannot continue. Failed to read *D:\* The request could not be performed because of an I/O error."

Possible Reasons to DVD Backup Freezes at 99%

In most cases, the DVD backup stuck at 99% or other percentage without giving you a clue why it happens. Below are some possible causes:

1. The DVD is scratched at certain point. So visually check the disc and fix the scratched DVD with proper repair kit.
2. A bug of the software. E.g., DVD backup hangs at 100% is common with DVDFab earlier versions, and upgrade can fix the error.
3. The DVD may be interlaced and some rippers have problem with interlaced content.
4. Check if you're depending on S/W which uses CPU. If the software maxes out your CPUs, it will cause lockup issues when you are overclocked or have less than optimal cooling. So enable H/W if available.
5. The DVD is encrypted by Sony ArccOS (bad sectors), CSS, regions, or other DVD copy protections. If the software fails to rip a protected DVD, you will need to find a stronger DVD ripper.
