    ok if someone would help me i sure would appreeiate it.

    i have a benq dual layer burner. i have installed nero and dvd shrink that i got from a friend.
    when i was at his place he showed me what to do, but when i got home my version was different and he could not help me.

    when i put in a movie and hit backup it shows me the right screen, or atleast the same as his.
    what is different is when i pull the drop box it does not give me the option to burn to my dvd burner. how would i get this to work?

    thank you

    sorry that did not work the only two options i have are when i hit backup. it allows me to select for target only hard disk folder or iso image. i need to know what to do for it to allow me to select my e: drive where the burner is.

    then try creating the ISO image and then burning that.

    well i got it to work after all but perhaps i can ask you another question.

    i am running a pci card with my theatre if you are aware of this software perhaps you can tell me, how do i get dvd shrink to recognize it as something i can transfer to dvd?

    Dvd Shrink won't work with a pci card. that's not what it's designed to do.

    ok so is there any software out there that will convert the files to the format i need?
    this was the sole purpose for buying the burner, so that i could burn satelitte movies onto dvd.
    thanks

    i'm a little confused by what you're saying, but from what i can tell, here's what you have and what you need: you have a tv tuner pci card. you need to pick up some software (such as Pinnacle Studio 8) that can record from that card. usually, some is included. then you need a program (Nero or Pinnacle Studio) that can take that video file, edit it, and encode it to dvd-compliant mpeg 2. then, with the burner you have now, use the the editing program or any burning program to write that movie file to disc.

    ok ty i will try that.
    but unfortunitly i ran into another problem last night. that is when i am copying straight from disk 2 disk sometimes and not always but sometimes it will stop burning about 1/3 of the way through. it just stopps sounds and looks like it is still going. but leave it for one hour and still says same % done. any ideas.
