    I'm not familiar with Nero Showtime, but I am with DVD Shrink.

    DVD Shrink does not burn. What happens exactly when you try with Shrink? What errors do you get? Is this a store-bought DVD or did you download it or is it a home video or what? Also what are your computer specs? Processor speed, RAM, hard drive space, burner model?

    Big one here: What blank media are you trying to use?

    check out the link to bbmayo's site in my sig. He's got a good guide on how to use DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink. That should work for you. If it doesn't, it's probably something to do with your system. But I do think it's in your process. Also might not be a bad idea to get some RW media so you don't make coasters while experimenting.

    hi

    try loading the vob/ifo/bup film to dvd shrink to see if it will except it!

    if it does you can output to dvd decrypter in shrink settings to burn it!

    sounds like your dvd player doesn't like the media you are using. If you go here: http://www.videohelp.com/dvdplayers.php you should be able to find out if your player is supposed to be able to play the discs you are trying to use.

    hi

    ok, on first glance like said above it could be the standalone player doesnt like the discs used! its very common place...

    you need to check that fact out! also to note that some players like + format and some like - format better! so need to check that out to...

    and finally you say its a download? well it could be an NTSC trying to play on a PAL player? or visa versa! some players wont except the other format!

    so need to convert it!

    What are img files? Rotary might be on the ball with the NTSC/PAL thing.
