    Hi, I used ScubaPete's guide for DVD shrink and decrypter to copy a DVD but it won't work in my player- it says that it is incompatible with the region specified or something like that. After pressing play again I got it to work somewhat but it was jerky and had weird pixelations, then it stopped again. What could be causing this? If I am using Memorex dvd's, is that the problem? thanks

    Hi Bradwell,


    %@*# WAAAAPPP ! ! #*@#

    (That was a bit of a ScubaPete slap)

    Yea, Ya see that, you use my Oooonhh so perfect guide and ya burn it on that crappy Memorex media and it's ScubaPete's fault - NOT ! ! !

    First off, make sure in DVD Shrink, "Edit", "Preferences" "Target size", change it to read 4300MB. Iffin ya were using the stuff I told you to use you could have it set at 4360MB BUT NOT NOW (heh, heh, not till get you get some good stuff) -

    Lastly, to try to work through that lously media, reduce your burn speed to 2.4X and see if that may help -

    Cheers,

    Pete

    i tried again this time with a verbatim dvd and its still sayinf that the player is not compatible with the region marking of the disk- does this have to do with the country that you select? which country should you select to allow dvd players to play the disc?? thanks!

    On which continent do you reside and what region is listed on the back of the DVD case?

    It can also be set to say "Region Free" which should render the copy region free.

    BTW bradwell, your PC will play a peanutbutter sandwich on Rye bread - Standalones and ps2's are much, much picker -

    Cheers,

    Pumpernickel tends to cause CRC errors though so it's best avoided ;)

    We do have to add - Pumpernickel is fine for Data, Jpg, Gif and MP3 backups but shouldn't be used for DVD Video unless well toasted - -


    (Now let's wait for the cards and letters on this one hey, Neph ?)
