    Hi, I really need help!!! A couple of weeks ago I sucessfully burnt Desperardo with DVD Shrink but I can't remember how I did it! Now, I'm trying to burn Mean Girls from the video store, and I think I'm doing ok but then nothing happens. First I open the disk and an analysis is done. Then I click on backup and it starts encoding while the dvd is still in there. After about an hour, it finishes encoding then a box comes up that asks me to put in a disk to burn to. Down the bottom of this box it has a green strip (like loading) 'checking disk'. Is this normal. How long does it take? 1/2 an hour? Have I done something wrong or am I on the right track?

    Help! I am still having trouble - It has been 3 hours and it is still checking disk. Up the top of this box it still says "Please insert the disk to write to". Any ideas?

    I dont use Nero, so I can not be of much help, but Shrink is not your problem. You have DVD Shrink set up to burn with Nero? Sounds like Nero is the problem. Nero has a tool to take your DVD for a test drive. You should try it. You could try to uninstall and re-install Nero.

    As long as you have saved the movie correctly, All u need to do is open ~Nero Start Smart~ then go to copy and backup then click burn image to disk,then click my computer , then double click local disk (E.G) C:, then pick the file you want copied(movie), then click OPEN and it will take you back to Nero and you can now click next and it should make a good copy for you . If this doesnt work get rid of any saved movie files and re run: shrink, then do as ive said ..GOODLUCK..

    I will try everyting suggested, thanks. Just a quick Q. I tried to burn it also with decrypter but when I put in the disc to write to, nothing happened. I pressed on 'write' but again nothing happened. Could it be the disc? I am really bad at this!

    Did you try the Nero test drive tool. You might uninstall your DVD and reboot. The driver should re-install. When you tried Decrypter, did you rerun Shrink with Decrypter selected as your burn program.

    Sounds like the problems is the burner itself and not Decrypter.
