    Hi I have a question for you, I've been trying to make a DVD to play in my DVD player, I'm using Shrink and Nero 8 but the message in the DVD player is "cannot read the disc", could anyone tell me what I am doing wrong...

    Is the movie a recent release.
    Was the disk decrypted using the likes of DVDFab.
    Does the burned disk play OK on the PC.

    Thanks for your answer, no, they are old movies from 70ties, once burnt, I can watch them on the PC but I can't on standalone DVD, it says "Cannot read disc", I open the DVD with shrink, I backup the disc, and then the files I get I burn it with Nero 8 to a DVD-R, but something is wrong, could you please help me? I would appreciate it...

    If your certain that it isn't an encryption issue, burn the output files from DVD Shrink using ImgBurn.

    If you saved the output to the HDD, run ImgBurn and select 'Write files/folder to disk' and browse to or drag the VIDEO_TS folder into the window.

    If you saved the output from DVD Shrink to an ISO image file, run ImgBurn and select 'Write image file to disk' and browse to or drag the ISO file into the window.

    Insert a blank and select a moderate speed (4x) and test the result.

    This eliminates Nero as the source of the problem.

    I don't know where the problem lies.
    It's a case of elimination - first burn with something else.
    If that doesn't work, it may simply be that the media are low quality and the standalone doesn't like them.

    I'm not clear what that means.
    The VIDEO_TS folder contains the VOB,IFO,BUP files?
    When does it become empty?

    Open the folder location with Explorer.
    Run ImgBurn.
    'Write fles/folder to disc'
    Drag the VIDEO_TS folder onto the ImgBurn pane.
