    I have DVD Rebuilder and the video quality is bar none the best. But the audio drop outs are just taking the enjoyment of the movie out. I have audio drop outs all throughout the movie. Some movies just the beginning, some here and there. Are other people having the same issues?

    What DVD player(s) have you tried them on? There are some issues that are specific to certain players or brands of players.

    what speed are your burning at? what type of media? also dvd shrink with the new smoothing is vastly improved - not really much to choose between DVDRB and shrink any more...

    I use high quality media only ritek 04/ or Verbatim DataLife Plus (Mitsubish Chemical) Dvds. I burn at 2x. With the DVD Shrink is it better to keep it at the default "sharp" or "smooth"? Thanks.

    maximum smoothness seems the most popular - i have used it many times with great results far faster that DVDRB unless u have a RB farm thingy

    i only use ritek disks also - never had a problem burning ridisks @ 4x on my nec 2510a

    alpha, IMHO, rebuilder is the best possible method of backing a DVD, especially with compression rates of 40-50% or more! Stick with it and try posing your problem in the RB/CCE thread at:

    http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/97052

    You didn't say but are you using CCE Basic or QuEnc or ReJig? CCE Basic seems to have the best results and fewest problems. Also, are you using a trial version of CCE if that's what you're using?

    As a long time user of RB/CCE I have had no problems except when i used DvdReMake and then used those files with RB/CCE. By switching to an older version of CCE Basic(2.69 to 2.67)I resolved that issue and have had no problems since.

    Speaking of versions, which version of rebuilder are you using? There was a revision of the latest version as it was causing some problems, 62 to 62a, I believe. :>)

    bigorange, thanks for your inputs. I do agree that I think that RB gives the superior results. I have purchased the $50 CCE Basic about two months ago, I am not sure what version. Also, check every couple of days for the latest version and always update. I do have the latest one. At this point I am thinking mayabe the audio might be dvd-player sensitive. I might need to try it with coupld of other dvd players. I just know that using Shrink I have never had audio drop outs and reading the Rebuilder's forum there are many people that do complain of audio dropouts. We'll see how it goes.
