    I get the DVD copied with shrink and Decrypter opens up.I get everything ready to burn....and when I try to start the burning........it says.device not ready..medium not present.

    I burnt several DVD's with Sony DVD R's and now am trying to use Memorex.and Verbatim........would that be the trouble.......or is it something else?????

    Could be the media, Memorex is crap, but it should still burn regardless. Try updating the firmware for your drive.

    Which burner do you have in that PC
    Phillips 8401
    Lite-On SOHW 822S
    Phillips 8421

    If you don't know how to check follow this
    Right click on My Computer
    Select Properties
    Click on the Hardware Tab
    Click on Device Manager
    Click on + sign by DVD\CD-Rom Drives
    This should show you your burner I need to know what burner you have in that system?

    It is probablly the Lite-On, but I just want to be sure :)

    I dont understand why it would burn my first 2 DVD's and then stop.....only thing I changed was the brand I was using.
