    I don't have any experience opening an img file directly in DVDShrink if that is what you mean. Instead I have Alcohol 120% installed, which will let you mount the .img onto a virtual drive. Then just treat the virtual drive as any other DVD-Rom and "open disc"... that should work fine.

    Also, is the image too big for a dvd-r/dvd+r ? Not too often ppl need to put an .img through shrink again.

    Here's the rest of the details...the image is only 4.2GB so it isn't too big, i get the error whether i mount the image with alcohol and open disc in dvd shrink or if i try to open from image. The reason why I re-run my .img's through dvd shrink is because alcohol does not recognize .img's so the best way for me to get an ISO file is to use shrink to re-author it. And just to save somebody the thread, I don't like renaming .img's to .iso because it's a quick fix but not a good one.

    Have you tried using DVD Decrypter ? It will burn both .iso and .img files.

    mrsmovie hi, I don't think there is any difference in quality between choosing to save to a hard drive folder or an .iso image (which will still end up on your hard drive). My preferred burning program for dvd images is dvd decrypter, so I use the image option for convenience.

    mrsmovie, get your own thread!!!! and for future references, nobody starts a help needed thread so that some fool can come along and change the topic...so don't do it again, that's the sort of thing that makes searching the forums a pain in the ass.

    Oh yah, Modesto I think I will go with your suggestion and try dvd decrypter, I haven't yet because I like to install the least amount of apps possible to keep my system nice and clean, but this is a good time to expand my app library i think.
