    Do you have an older drive by any chance? The first generation of +R writers could only burn re-writables and not write-once media. Bizarre, but true.

    I took my Phillips 208 back to PC World when I found that out.

    When you have the files from DVD Shrink just drag them one by one into Nero (DVD-Video option) and burn directly. That should work. You don't need to use any other programme after using Shrink.

    If I use DVD Shrink, I have it put everything into a new folder called VIDEO_TS (not video_ts; some DVD players won't read it if it isn't in caps.)

    I use Record Now, but I move the entire folder into the file selection to burn.

    You should drag all the files - Nero sorts them out before burning but you can also put them in a new folder as Ken suggests especially if you want to keep the folder on your HD.
