    I have many downloaded video clips which I have converted to DVD format using Win AVI converter. Till recently I used DVD Shrink to re-author many of these converted clips and burn them onto compilation DVDs - but starting a couple of weeks ago Shrink freezes when the backup button is pressed..
    Other programs I have tried seems to only accept five or six clips max and takes many hours!
    I have and use many conversion programs and would convert the clips into ANY format that would speed up proceedings.
    So - a few questions from a puzzled senior citizen newbie...
    (1) Has anyone got a suggestion about what has happened to Shrink? I have uninstalled and reloaded it a few times to no avail.
    (2) Is there a substitute for Shrink - which I have used without any problem for years?
    (3) Is there another program that would burn compilation DVDs of in a reasonable time, particularly if the clips were changed to a suitable format - Ashampoo Shrink and Burn sounds like a possibility - any opinions?
    Thanks in advance,
    Roger.

    Your sure there are no unwelcome guests in your PC hogging the CPU;have you ran MalwareBytes etc to verify that it's clean.

    I don't think AnyDVD is relevant except where an actual protected movie disk is involved.
    If you can pick a restore point prior to the problem it might help.
