    I have seen that sometimes, rented discs (Hollywood, Blockbuster) place those clear labels on the discs.. which can cause a balance issue.

    You can dump it with your computer if you have the right LG drive and the latest version of FriiDump that supports dual layer disks. Rawdump does not work. It'll still take you like, two days to dump it.

    well not really lol..with the newer version of FriiDump..it took me like 6 hours to dump it, maybe depends on the computer i gues..on that note though..the first time i tried dumping it with FriiDump, it stopped at like 45%..did this happen to anyone else?

    with a lg gsa 4040b? seriously? could you please see which firmware version you have?
    does the drive work with rawdump too?
    did you need to use one of the other ripping modes of friidump?
    you're the first person i know that dumped with this drive.

    That is more wrong than my two days comment! You can't post links to illegal files, but you certainly can talk about how rawdump works on these forums.

    Sorry about that comment by the way, I guess I was under the impression that Friidump took a long time to dump a dual layer, but unlike Rawdump it actually works. So I was only half wrong!

    And I guess I misunderstood the OP anyway. My guess would be in agreement with the second post of the thread, that the rented copy has something on it that causes a balance problem and the drive can't get the raw data properly. Try renting it from a different place I guess, see if they don't have anything stuck on the disks.

    I have the right drive and I've dumped roughly 90 games so far. but Rawdump won't dump my brawl copy, and Friidump stopped at like 70% and the ISO was 3.xGB. latest version dumps dual layer, link?
