    OK...someone please help me. I have not been able to burn a DVD WHATSOEVER! I am using the guides (thanks Uncle ScubaPete)but here is my majr problem. Hmm...the BACKUP button on DVDshrink is not accessible. It is grayed out and I can't push it. Maybe I am doing something wrong but I am not sure. Also I get this error:

    DVD Shrink encountered an error and cannot continue.
    Failed to read file "F:\"
    The parameter is incorrect.

    Ok here we go
    If the back up button is greyed out you probably haven't opened the disc yet.
    Start up Shrink.
    Insert your original disc in your DVD drive.
    Click on the "open disc" button.
    On the drop down menu select the drive with your movie in it.
    It will now encode and you can take it from here with the Uncle ScubaPete guide (version - who the heck knows)
    Any more problems give a jingle.

    Thanks so much for the reply. When I try to open the disk...this is the error that I get:
    DVD Shrink encountered an error and cannot continue.
    Failed to read file "F:\"
    The parameter is incorrect.

    I have tried with several other discs and I get the same thing every time. I also get it eith drive "E".

    Poems,
    Try ripping w/ DVDDecrypter first and then use ScubaPete's guide except where he told you to use open disc you will now use open file

    Here's a good basic Decrypter guide. Should explain how to rip with Decrypter as well as burning with Decrypter (if you want to know).

    Also, can you post your specs? How many optical drives do you have? Have you tried re-installing the programs?

    [bold] Thanks so much for the reply. When I try to open the disk...this is the error that I get:

    The parameter is incorrect.[/bold]

    Try this
    Open Shrink
    then insert your disc
    If the error comes up again do not shut down Shrink, with Shrink running open and close your DVD drive and try to open disc again.

    Thanks...I tried that also but yet it still did not work. It reads the DVD that is in there because it tells me that in drive F: it is the Five Heartbeats....BUT YET..it still gives me that error.
