    Im using dvd shrink and have been for serveral months now but every once and a while i get a DVD that freezes in the middle of the movie and or previews.
    The weird thing is the dirty burn occur randomly on encrytped and non-encrytped movies. But im wonder how to fix it. Im burning at 8x and normal encoding.

    Im thinking slowing down the burn rate but besides that i have no idea of how to fix it and i really need to make the back ups of a couple of movies

    Thx

    Your type problem is usually caused by cheap/poor quality blank media. Sometimes slowing down the burn speed does help but getting better quality is a better fix.

    refer to the countless posts on this forum. i'll summarise. use v good media, burn at 4x (its not like its slow, even on a real fast burner), maybe set the rip size to 4300mb, no multitaskin (during burns). Maybe check firmware rev of burner, but only update if u know what you're doing. Lots of peepl say check/sort out the aspi layer. Oh and if you use nero, be wary of 6.6.0.1 thru 6.6.0.5.
    Many, many threads on this subject by the way.
