    Hello

    Firstly check out to see if your player is compatible to play dvdr at:
    http://www.dvdrhelp.com, and look for your player in the dvd compatibility section.

    Now you either have a media issue OR old faithful nero upto it's own tricks again - nero can be a little off sometimes.

    Check your PM's I have sent you a no frills nero guide - see if it helps........

    Yeababy - have a look at: http://www.chrismccann.co.uk - very GOOD guide for dvd shrink here.....

    I have PM'd you a nero no frills guide - have you got it?

    The first things you want is that you need a folder called VIDEO_TS (in uppercase).

    When your files have been processed with dvd shrink you need to point them to the VIDEO_TS folder as the destination....

    Then burn with nero or recordnowmax, now if you are having problems with nero - there are alot of options you could choose - now it maybe that the option you are choosing is not compatible with your player......try a different option...

    Have a look at that guide and let me know....Baaaaaa!

    usmcja - what problems are you having - your disc plays in the pc but not in standalone?

    post what steps you are using, what files you have after processing, where you are placing these files, what burning program are you using and what options....

    Forgot to mention - may also be a media issue - but we need to check your methods out first....Baaaa!......let me know...._X_X_X_X_X_[small]Beware of the Pixies - they move in over night and turn your life upside down

    yeababy - YEAH BABY!!!!!!!

    Nice one, how old is your mustek?

    I had an old LG - way back from 1999 - this would only play the UDF ROM option.

    Nice to hear you've completed it...

    The sun is shining at afterdawn again....LOL

    its less than a year old, one more question if u dont mind as u seem to know what ure talking about, obviously im using a freeware prog at mo (dvdshrink)should i stay with this or is it better to buy dvdcopy or dvdone2one etc etc, its a bit of a mine field trying to find the right prog thats really easy to use,
    ps if ure worried about the pixies u should move to north sweden wre i live as we have no night time for 6months of the year lol

    i've done using the udf/isomode. to make it realy work under udf tab make sure u check the box that say's dvd compatibility with x-box. also make sure everything else is unticked on the tab iso. under relax iso restriction make sure it's no check marks. i've backed my favorites with this method. but u can't shrink to the max with dvd shrink that when u gonna have problems. don't do like i did and look for the QUICK SOLUTION. i scouted around for months befor i got it right i have bout 19 coaster to prove it.

    ps...always us dvd-rw or +rw to test.

    No night for 6 months....It's a good thing there a lot of good looking women in Sweden or the population might dwindle down to nothing.

    DVD Shrink is a great program, if you have a program that will burn the contents of the VIDEO_TS folder, stick with what you got. I have bought several programs over the past year, and here I am using the free stuff instead.

    Well, I am using Nero too, it was only $24 though._X_X_X_X_X_[small]WINXP HOME, AMD 1800

    yeababy - no night time, geez man/women (no sexist here) bet its real wierd when it does go dark then - as though the world is ending.....LOL

    Anyway to answer your Q's:

    Dvd Shrink is a fully comprehensive program designed to do rip/strip/compress/re-author DIRECTLY from the disc, and is free.....

    Dvd2one was the original of this class of software - which took this forum by storm within hours.

    Personally, dvd shrink is better to manipulate files (dvd2one is catching up) and if you are happy with this then stick with it....

    As for burning - people tend to plum for nero as it is usually shipped with burners along with other stuff.
    However, I started out with nero and ran into misburns and compatibility issues - I did eventually resolve them - but the new updates are supposed to be really good.
    I now use recordnowmax - cannot fault this - no coasters and no compatibility issue that I have encounetered (on numerous standalones)..

    For more info regarding guides on dvdshrink/nero/recordnowmax then visit:
    http://chrismccann.co.uk - still under construction but some links are available...

    Yeababy - you know when you retire for bed etc, do you say goodnight OR good day.....LOL

    Hope this has helped....
