    Hi,
    I just ripped the Sopranos and Star Trek Deep Space Nine as well as Voyager with DVD Shrink/Decrypter. No problems here.
    I simply use Full disc and minus some of the audio, ie everything except for ac-5. I have the lastest Shrink & Decrypter, maybe that could be a problem.

    You can however you must realize that episode disks require much more compression because they usually have more data on them so a lot of DVD players wont play the compressed stuff to good, and this is where the good media really comes into play also.. If you want the best picture quality I would recommend that you split the episodes up to 2 or 3 per disk and you should have no problems. :)

    I have been using cheap cheap disks before. My first attempt with an episode disk I used a brand new Sony dvd. It doesn't play on my Tosiba DVD player but plays on other friends dvd players. I even borrowed another Sony that was burnt and it played on my Toshiba DVD player. That person used DVDXCOPY. I am wondering if it is a problem with Shrink. I will check to see it is updated version.

    I am using AnyDVD and this time I used DVD Fab.
    Disk worked. I then burnt another copy and my DVD player won't play that copy. Strange I have no idea why it works and why it doesn't.
