Not quite a newbie, but have had several problems with movie back ups burnt to DVD. I'm using DVDFab (latest version) to rip to HDD, DVD Shrinking (latest version) and burning with Nero (188.8.131.52) or ImgBurn (latest version). Burning with either results in a smooth copy at first, but starts to pause or stutter the last five to ten minutes of the movie (or disc). I thougt it might be Nero and started using ImgBurn; same result. Thought it might be discs; picked up a spindle of TYs(are supposed to be very reliable) - same problem. I've read through other posts and reduced finalize size to 4300 MB when shrinking, hoping the problem might be with the edges of the media - nothing's worked. Can anyone help?
