    I'm using dvd shrink 3.2 on my new laptop and I can shrink the dvd but when it says "Please insert an empty disc to write to" nothing happens. I can't get past the Phase:Checking discs. This laptop also has vista on it does shrink work w/ this OS? Thanks.

    It should be work with Shrink.
    What version of Nero are you running? 7.7.5.1 & higher are Vista compatible.

    What brand of discs are you using also - like Sony +R 16x? That may be playing into it also.

    Try burning with ImgBurn. It's a good free burning program.
    The files should be saved to your hard drive from Shrink. Use the build mode in ImgBurn to add the folder to burn.

    That might be the reason - give the trial of 7 a shot - link.

    You'll need to uninstall 6 1st - run the clean tool. Reboot and install the trial.

    Give ImgBurn a shot 1st to make sure just a Nero thing. Great program and can't beat the price :)
