Hello! I'm new here and what a great sight by the way! I have a 1.3Ghz AMD Athlon, XP home with SP 2 fully updated, 640 MB RAM, 2 HD - Drive C: 60GB FAT 32 (30% free) and Drive E: Maxtor IDE 160GB NTFS file system (80% free), 16X Compaq DVD-ROM GD-8000, Sony DVD RW DRU-510A 4X. I just did a disk cleanup and Defrag. I used to use DVD X-Copy to burn DVD's and had errors half the time ending up w/ lots of coasters. Was referred to this site and just downloaded and installed DVD Shrink (126.96.36.199) and DVD Decrypter (188.8.131.52) and I'm getting errors. When I first used the 2 programs, it worked...made a copy of Starsky & Hutch. I was then using my burner to both read & write...time consuming. Found out I could use my DVD-ROM player to read and my Sony burner to burn, so I then followed Scubapetes guide to the "T" and now it's not working. I'm trying to burn DVD-9 movies (tried Soul Plane) to DVD-R. I was using Memorex DVD-R at first and just bought some TDK DVD-R's and still no luck. I just ordered some Sony DVD-R's. During the whole process, I closed all programs running in my taskbar, snooze mode for anti-virus, and left the computer alone. My primary and secondary IDE channels are both set to: DMA if possible. The first error was an I/O Error....Interpretation-Write Error-Recovery Failed Invalid address for write. The last 2 errors were: DVD Shrink encountered an error....programming error-exception occured. I have ROXIO 6.0 on my PC also...should I uninstall that? I think I saw a post about possible conflicts. I also have Sonic MYDVD, Veritas RecordNow DX and Studio 7 installed. The DVD Shrink settings are: Target DVD size: 4260 MB Select backup target: ISO image file and burn with DVD Decrypter Select target image file: E\DVD Shrink & DVD Decrypter work\SOULPLANE_UR.ISO DVD Region Code: Region free checked Quality setting: Compress video with high quality adaptive error compensation checked, Sharp (default); Deep analysis unchecked Run background in low priority checked. The Decrypter settings are: Burn proof checked Verify unchecked ISO Mode: write Destination: Sony DRU-510A Write Speed: Max Is it ok to have the Shrink & Decrypter on my local C drive and the saved files burn files to go to my E drive? Should I uninstall Roxio, the backup to DVD feature doesn't work anyhow? Saw something about ASPI...would that help...what is it? Disable IMAPI maybe? These 2 programs look to be nice, if they would just work. Pulling hair out and loosing sleep here! Any and all help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
