    hi all

    with it not automatically opening on your PC isnt to much to worry over a i get that and others! it can be the drive locks on burning then wont always unlock the drive to play straight after! if you reboot comp then load dics it will probably play!

    firstly has your dvd player stand alone ever played copied dvd's? also what type? IE: dvd-r dvd+r dvd-+rw ??? as some wont!

    if you followed the guide then you cant go far wrong? did you burn all in a VIDEO_TS folder to dvd-rw?

    did you have bup/ifo/vobs files in the folder?

    can you give more info on what you do! anything for us to go on! also the drive type you use etc...

    Thx

    hi well i did what you siad and rebooted my Pc and then put the Cd back in and all that happend was Nero 6 poped up ready to do somthing. My stand alone DVD is an Auriga and yes it does play copys as i get cd's that a copys from over in Asia if you know what i mean. My writer is a Pioneer DVR106.

    Well what i did is i went to the sight www.chrismccann.co.uk and used DVD Shrink 3.0 Beta 5 and did what the user Guide said and crunch the file and then use nero 6 expres and went through the user Guide said. I had all the bup/ifo/vobs files in one folder VIDEO_TS and then did the burning. can you think of anything i did wrong.

    thanks for your help

    hi all

    ok, if nero popped up after the reboot and you putting a newly BURNT dvd you made in the drive that usally means the disc is blank !!!! i get this when i put an empty disc in the drive nero will open ready to use it and burn! so this is odd!

    OK! do you have finalize session on? and NO MULTISESSION !!!?

    also it could be disc media? some discs and players dont go/mix!

    i would say try new media type! if it works on the pc then you are over half way there! so it has to be some like media?

    or a setting some where? oh by the way i have the same drive! i use packard bell 1x dvd-rw ok! and ritek 4x unbranded!

    what settings do you use in nero? UDF/ISO v1.02 or ADD-VIDEO ?

    let us know....

    Me again well Rotary still no luck I though i would try something else and copy over the files of a copied dvd that i have both the VIDEO_TS and the AUDIO_TS even though it has nothing in it well the file in there was more file than the ones i get when i use dvd shrinkin the copied dvd there are 14 file

    VIDEO_TS.BUP
    VTS_01_0.BUP
    VTS_01_1.VOB
    VTS_01_4.VOB
    VTS_02_0.VOB
    VIDEO_TS.IFO
    VTS_01_0.IFO
    VTS_01_2.VOB
    VTS_02_0.BUP
    VTS_02_1.VOB
    VIDEO_TS.VOB
    VTS_01_0.VOB
    VTS_01_3.VOB
    VTS_02_0.IFO

    in the one the i used dvd shrink there are only 9 files

    VIDEO_TS.BUP
    VTS_01_0.BUP
    VTS_01_1.VOB
    VTS_01_4.VOB

    VTS_01_0.IFO
    VTS_01_0.IFO
    VTS_01_2.VOB
    VTS_01_3.VOB

    anyway i used nero 6 and still it won't play on my stand alone dvd.
    I use UDF/ISO v1.02 on my setting
    can the cd's i use are not compatable with my dvd player i use dvd-rw and dvd-r should i try dvd+rw do u think that could work..

    i do have NO MULTISESSION and i do have finalize session on it's ticked but in gray in the background. i realy appreciate you help on this...

    thanks

    The files will automatically go in sequence !

    You need to click on DVD-Video instead of DVD-Rom (UDF/ISO) in Nero 6 !!
    Thats an older version of Nero in Rotary's pictorial...
    It is okay to do it the way it shows in pic Rotary kindly supplied but you'd need to be using old Nero 5.5.10.42 or lower to go that route.

    Hope this helps : )

    You stated :
    I dont use DVD Shrink myself , I much prefer DVD2One ...but it sounds like you extracted other audio & left just 'Directors Commentary'
    Is hard to tell tho as you've given no details on method used as to getting them results..

    Rotary , check PM m8 ;-)

    Hey there Herb you are saying that you use DVD Decrypter and then do you use DVD2ONE. do you think it does a better job the DVD SHRINK and is it just as easy to use or better. when finished what do you use burn.it's just that i'm using dvd shrink and the nero 6 and seems to have nothing but problems when burning dvd i think buy my count about 6 coasters. so there must be something out there for us dummies to burn dvd easy.....

    Yes I use DVD2One after DVD Decrypter stage & yes it is very easy to use.
    I then use Nero 6 , DVD-Video option - add files to VIDEO_TS folder & burn
