After many successful dvd burns now I get "DVD- files reallocation failed. BY THE WAY.....The process that I go through is I start with RipIt4Me which uses DVD-Decrypter to rip it to the hard drive. Then I use FixVTS after it is ripped. After that I open it with DVD Shrink whick backs it up and then uses Nero to burn it. And until yesterday this process was working fine for me. the following is the description: Windows XP 5.1 IA32 WinAspi: - ahead WinASPI: File 'D:\Nero\Nero\Wnaspi32.dll': Ver=188.8.131.52, size=164112 bytes, created 10/26/2004 8:35:32 AM Nero API version: 184.108.40.206 Using interface version: 220.127.116.11 Installed in: D:\Nero\Nero\ Application: ahead\Nero - Burning Rom Internal Version: 6, 6, 0, 19d Recorder: <TSSTcorp CD/DVDW SH-S182M>Version: SB01 - HA 1 TA 0 - 18.104.22.168 Adapter driver: <atapi> HA 1 Drive buffer : 2048kB Bus Type : default (0) -> ATAPI, detected: ATAPI === Scsi-Device-Map === DiskPeripheral : ST380020A atapi Port 0 ID 0 DMA: On CdRomPeripheral : TSSTcorp CD/DVDW SH-S182M atapi Port 1 ID 0 DMA: On CdRomPeripheral : LITE-ON LTR-52246S atapi Port 1 ID 1 DMA: On === CDRom-Device-Map === TSSTcorp CD/DVDW SH-S182M F: CDRom0 LITE-ON LTR-52246S G: CDRom1 ======================= AutoRun : 1 Excluded drive IDs: WriteBufferSize: 70254592 (0) Byte ShowDrvBufStat : 0 BUFE : 0 Physical memory : 479MB (491040kB) Free physical memory: 135MB (139188kB) Memory in use : 71 % Uncached PFiles: 0x0 Use Inquiry : 1 Global Bus Type: default (0) Check supported media : Disabled (0) 14.1.2007 NeroAPI 1:36:13 PM #1 Phase 112 File APIProgress.cpp, Line 276 DVD-Video files reallocation started 1:36:13 PM #2 DVDREALLOC -5 File DVDVideoCompilation.cpp, Line 1189 Violation against DVD specification detected 1:36:13 PM #3 Phase 115 File APIProgress.cpp, Line 276 DVD-Video files reallocation failed 1:36:13 PM #4 Text 0 File NeroAPIBurnFS.cpp, Line 213 Failed to realloc DVD video files Existing drivers: File 'Drivers\PXHELP20.SYS': Ver=2.02.38a, size=16288 bytes, created 4/18/2002 1:02:00 AM (Prassi/Veritas driver for win 2K) Registry Keys: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon\AllocateCDROMs : 0 (Security Option) I re-installed Nero but that did not do it. Also, I have not figured out how to burn the same file again at a later time without having to go through backing up the file again. DVD Shrink opens the first encoded file that was created to burn the 1st dvd but the only option that I have in DVD Shrink is to Back it Up again and create another file before burning the movie. Any help on this problem will be greatly appreciated.
