    hey, im trying copy a movie, with dvd shrink. i click open disc, and it goes through the movie preview, and i have made sure that their is enough room to fit on the dvd. everything looks good. i click back up, and i get a new box that says burn to hardware, or something to that effect. their is also a dvd/audio ts thing. i burn the file to c drive because i only have one dvd drive. after that i let it encode. when its done encoding, i have no idea what to do next.
    any help?
    thanks

    depends on what you encoded, Either files or a ISO image file. Either will work I believe. If you encoded than it's time to burn your disc with the burning software of your choice. My personal steps are these:

    1. reencode and compress with Shrink, to an ISO

    2. Burn with Decrypter or Alchy 120%. :)

    thanks for the info. i went the way of the ISO, and everything seemed to work great. for some reason i get an I/O error, and i cant burn the ISO.
    any info?
    thanks

    ablunt,

    What media are you trying to use ?

    If you insist on using crappy media, many times the proggy won't burn to it - Look through the forum and find some posts on the correct media to use for DVD Video work - There is a difference !

    Happy New year -

    Pete

    BTW, the best place to look for those DVD recommendations is in the Newbie Forum.
