I hope I am posting this in the right place. I am new to this and have tried to burn a couple of movies. Problem is half the time Shrink times out. I was told to make sure DMA is checked for my burner in Device Manager. I have a DVD ROM, a CD RW and my external DVD Burner. Both the CD RW and the DVD ROM have the DMA option in Device Manager but the Burner does not so I have no way to know if DMA is chosen or not. When I do get Shrink to burn a complete copy without timing out, the copy has glitches or even freezes. I use reauthor to copy the movie only so that compression is at the minimum. Some cases there is no compression. I have wasted about 10-15 DVDs trying to trouble shoot this issue. Can anyone please help. At this rate of wasted DVD's it would almost be cheaper to buy a backup copy rather than trying to burn one. Oh! DVD Decrypter decrypts the movie without problems and DVD Shrink analyzes and encodes without logging any errors.
