    Is ripping an unencrypted DVD more reliable than copying that same DVD?

    a) My children scratch the dickens out of my archived (unencrypted) DVDs.
    b) A 1:1 copy of an unencrypted DVD is faster than re-ripping & copying.
    c) Yet, I seem to get more reliable burns by re-ripping than by copying.

    I'm just curious. Is there a reason why I would get more verification
    failures (by far) when performing a 1:1 copy (using IBM RecordNow) of
    scratched unencrypted DVDs than when I re-rip (with DVD Shrink 3.2) and
    then burn the ripped image with IBM Record Now?

    Why would I find that 1:1 copying of my old scratched archived unencrypted
    DVDs is less reliable than re-ripping and burning those same DVDs?

    Is it just my imagination or is there a reason for this reliability
