VSO Inspector - How To Decode DVD Sectors?

Post by movienut »

I have 2 copies of a video DVD I created, and they should be the same. However, I see sector-by-sector differences, so I would like to know if anyone knows how to decode those sectors to find out what info is different. I'd like to understand why one works and one doesn't, since VSO Inspector doesn't find a problem. But when I compare sector 16, 32, 128, 192, 259 (etc.) there is a difference between the 2 dvds. (I'm doing sector reads). File compare shows equivalence, so it has to be something in the header section of the dvd (where I find the differences). I've done online searches for the info, but found nothing. It's possible I just don't know the right terms to find it on the web. I can see the data in each sector and compare, but need something that decodes the data into something understandable, as I don't read hex code. If I had something to tell me what info is in each sector, that would be helpful. Can anyone help me with this?
