    I've been burning dvd's for quite awhile now.
    I use dvd shrink & dvd decrypter. My movies look great until I get to either the middle or about 20 minutes from the end of the movie. It stalls, stops, flickers or all three.
    I have tried quite a few different brands of blank dvd's and my burner supports both dvd+/-.
    Hope someone has a solution

    good sugggestion but......(another app')
    dvd decrypter shrink should be fine

    what media are you using?
    what speeds you burning?
    to avoid errors at the end of the disc,have you set the custom burn size to 4300 mb on shrink?

    Thanks for your quick reply.
    I have been following scuba pete's instructions to the letter.
    disc size...not using the pc etc. I have used nero at one stage, but it wasn't as easy to use as decrypter.
    I'll keep trying.
    I don't bother with the coasters, I've made some great looking 'mobiles' with my mistakes.

    How about listing some of them, so we can tell if all youve tried is bad media,because thats what its sounds like to me.

    I really think you're right. I need to get better brand of media. (know what the best to buy in Australia?)
    I also have been labelling my dvd's...Have been reading that this can cause major probs. I will stop doing that.
    I'll let you know how i go.
    thanks so much for help.
