    I have a problem: I have been using dvd shrink for a clouple years, and anydvd for copy rite, and lately, my movies burn fine, but when i am watching the burned movie, and it gets to about 3/4 or almost to the end, the movie stops, like it is paused and starts back and then just stops. What can I do?

    99% of the time this is due to the media you are using.

    Usually if DVD Shrink completes, it's ok.

    From what it sounds like, it's either a burn error or media issue. What brand DVD are you burning to?

    By media, dialysis1 is referring to the type of DVD disks you use and who they're made by. What you state can happen when poor quality media (disks) is used, try using Verbatim disks (my choice).

    Here's some info on media quality if you care to read;

    Another reason for your problem of:
    [bold]"when i am watching the burned movie, and it gets to about 3/4 or almost to the end, the movie stops, like it is paused and starts back and then just stops."[/bold]

    [bold]You're burning too fast too close to the disks outer edge.[/bold]

    1) Set shrink to create a smaller file (or files) of 4300MB.
    Run shrink and goto:edit--preferences, in the preferences tab choose custom from the drop down menu and enter a value of 4300, click ok.

    2) Set shrink (if using it to autoburn the video files to disk using nero) for a write speed of 4X or 1/2 the rated speed of the media (ie.. for 16X disks, choose a write speed of 8X). Just slow it down.
