    lately, I have been getting this message from dvd shrink...

    >DVD shrink encountered an error and cannot continue.
    >Failed to write the H:\vts_01_1.vob"

    >the disc cannot find the sector requested.

    ie. H = external hard drive.

    can someone assist me with this problem,
    do I have to reformat the hard drive?

    thanks for any info.

    I tried your suggestion.
    it is still giving me the same error msg.

    on the other hand...
    from windows.. this is the message that pops up..

    >windows delayed write failed
    >windows was unable to save all data for file H:\vts_01_1.vob.
    >the data has been lost. this error may be caused by a failure of your >computer hardware or network communication. please try to save this
    >file elsewhere.

    the ext. drive has about 200G left in space.

    anyone has encountered the similar problem?

    thanks for any assistance that you may provide.

    Strange?

    -Is the external drive formatted using the FAT32 or NTFS file system?
    -Do you have to save the files to the external, can you use an internal instead?
    -Does the disk appear dirty/smudged is areas or scratched?, if so try and clean it, if it's badly scratced, return it if possible.

    when I bought the drive, I formatted via xp.. to ntfs file system.
    -am running low on internal drive, so I opt to save the file on external.
    - the disc seems to be ok, have tried on different ones.. just to test it. with same results.
