Any Way To Correct Corruption Problem?

From time to time when I am editing I get this message after I've edit out the ads and start to save I get "The disk structure is corrupted and unreadable." Yet, I am able to view the show on the computer and the DVR. When the detective is running I get no errors everything works as usual. I tried using quick fix but it doesn't work in this case. When ever I tried to save it causes the message. What is strange is if one show gives that message all the show I recorded during that time does it as well. When I hook the drive back up to the DVR and record more shows I don't have the problem. I don't know what sets it off where it won't save the edit out the ads. I hate watching the show and having to fast forward. Is there anything I can do to get the program to save the shows without the ads? Any idea why it does this from time to time? I am using suite 4 ... I didn't see a forum for it so I posted here. Thank you for reading my post.

If it's not VideoReDo then why does it playback but won't save? I don't understand that.:confused:
It can depend so much on what is being used.

I've had dvds that (with the built in error correction) play fine.

But try to copy the file off and the copy process sees uncorrected errors and fails.
Had to use an optical disk crawler to get the file off and that took over 24 hours for a 1GB vob.

I thought the output would be garbage,unusable but it was great, only a blip here and there.
There has to be such "recovery" software for hard drives.

My impression is that you are using an external moveable drive.

I'm rather untrusting of external connections. Try the file copy from
other inputs if you have been trying just the one same connection for input.

Wellsir ... here's a good head scratcher ... when I recorded the next batch of shows and edited them ... no problems saving by the way. I tried the shows that gave the corruption error again and I was able to save two of them.:cool: There were two more but when I click on them the program crashed. I am using a USB WD HHD. I tested the drive with WD software an it passed.

I just meant the error. That disk corruption error isn't coming from VideoReDo. That's not a error in our code. It must be coming from Windows.

One thing you could try...

Uninstall VRD
Reboot
Disable your antivirus
Reinstall VRD
Add an exception to your antivirus for VRD imstall directory

Sometimes AV software can interfere with VRD, or corrupt it's DLLs, and cause strange errors like this.

If that doesn't work then I'd suspect an actual disk problem.

That really makes me think "iffy input connection".
If possible try a different cable and different USB inputs.

Good luck,
