    Ive been using DVD Shrink and Any dvd for a couple of months now and up until 2 days ago I had no problems burning dvd's with these programs but my question to anyone. When I open my Any DVD it tells me my dvd burner is disabled and I have tried anything and everything i can think of to enable it again. If any one has any ideas on how I can get Any DVD to see that rom again please let me know. Cause I cant burn any dvd's without it. Its doing me any good to have paid for that program and now it not work after only a couple of uses. And when I enable Nero on DVD. Shrink it dont want to work either.PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!

    msbammy,
    Welcome to the forum. Try this go to Start> My Computer and right click it>Proprieties>Hardware>Device Manager. Now there you will see DVD/CD Drives. Click on that and you will see the burner. Right click the burner and you will see uninstall. Click on uninstall and then re-boot the computer. Windows should then install the burner properly and you should be good to go

    msbammy,
    I want you to right click the fox head in the Taskbar and click exit as that should turn AnyDVD off. Re-boot and make sure AnyDVD is not running. Now see it the drives are disabled.

    This is what I do. I rip the DVD to HD using AnyDVD and another program. I then turn AnyDVD off( exit in the taskbar) as I do not need it now and then process the movie.

    AnyDVD does not burn a DVD as it only decrypts. In Shrink you either use DVDDecrypter, Nero, Imgburn

    If you set it up properly it will burn w/ Nero. Check you set up in Shrink to make sure you are doing it correctly. Below is a rough guide on how it should be set up. I found this guide years ago so I hope this helps and I have no idea who to credit for it but I think it was ScubaPete or either Cynthia

    Set Up Guide for DVD Shrink 3.2 using Nero

    1.Make a folder on the Desktop and name it Rip Movies

    2.Put DVD Movie in your DVD-Rom or DVD-Writer

    3.When Windows asks if you want to play movie hit cancel

    4.Open DVD Shrink


    Setup Shrink

    1.Edit>preferences ( you can look at it if you want to but it is already setup)

    2.File I/O> Burn Setting -check enable burning w/ Nero
    Click O.K.

    3.Open Disc- click it ( Shrink will do quick analysis )


    Copy Movie Only Method

    1.At top click on Re-Author

    2.Main Movie – Drag title to the left side

    1.Compression settings

    a.Audio- uncheck the audio you do not want ( I usually leave 5.1 )

    b.Subpicture- uncheck any you do not want ( I usually uncheck all)

    c.Video- Where it says Automatic Ratio click to Custom Ratio ( at the top you will see a Green Bar. Right below where you clicked on Custom Ratio is a bar. Move that bar to the left and you will see the Green Bar at the top move left and it will show some gray color. Make sure only 1/8” to ¼” of gray color shows (this keeps you from burning to the outer edge of the disk))

    2.Backup>select target device ( make sure this is your burner )

    3.Select Folder for temp files ( make sure this is the folder on the desktop you created Rip Movies)

    4. You will see a Section at the top called Quality Options. Click on it and you will see 2 boxes :

    a. Backup Quality settings- If checked you will now do a 2 pass encode

    b. Compress Quality w/ high quality adaptive error compensation- you can now customize the sharpness of your picture

    c. At the bottom right you will see “ What do these options mean: Click on that and PLEASE READ THIS IF YOU ARE GOING TO KEEP THOSE BOXES CHECKED.



    Now Click O.K.


    Now DVD Shrink does Deep Analysis and then encodes the movie and then automatically burns the DVD using Nero

    You can try the fix below as it works for some. Also you need to try cleaning the lens by gently blowing compressed air into the DVD Burner. Also try using good quality blank media like Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden and make sure the speed is changed back to 4X. Once 4X is OK then you can try and go up to 8X but if 8X gives you errors then go back to 4X

    1 click start
    2 select control panel
    3 click on administrative tools
    4 click on services
    5 browse your way down to IMAPI CD BURNING COM SERVICE
    6 right click (on IMAPI) then select properties
    7 in the middle of the window it will say start up type.click on the arrow to the right and select disabled.
    8 make sure you click APPLY
