    what brand of media are you using?
    What speed do you burn at?

    U can try using a lens cleaner for your dvd player

    Verbatim disks are IMHO good media (maxwell??? luck of the spindle) and burning at 4X is always a safe speed to start with. Since the burners firmware is upto date, you should make sure the lens is clean as suggested then take a good look at the original DVD you're backing up and make sure it's also clean (look for finger print marks/smudges and clean them). Look for scratches on the disk, if its badly scratched in areas you might want to take it back and exchage it if possible, also make sure the original doesn't skip or freeze also (this will also be there on your backup).

    Try having shrink create an ISO image file that you can burn to disk using DVD decrypter or imgburn.

    You could also try using DVDFab for the backup, see link below.
