    how do you guys rip a movie perfectly.

    I mean i use dvd shrink ,using 90% compression which is not that bad. Then i drag the files to roxio , and the Burning process is ok .


    Next, i pick my dvd, put it in my dvd plyer in the living room, the movie start playing, quality is outstanding, but [bold] during the movie, the movies frezze for a second then skip a little bit, then go back to normal playing for 12 to 14 min then frezze for second again etc...[bold]


    my dvd+r+rw burner is

    phillips, i don't know the model, its the one wjo came whit the HP pavilion a640n.

    im using

    dvd shrink.
    Roxio 6


    sorry guys for english, im french :)

    Freezing and skipping are normally symptoms of poor quality media - what brand of DVD are you burning to?

    Use of labels on burnt DVD's also a major contributor to freezing/skipping problems as they tend to unbalance the disk.

    Maxell media generally OK - You could try Ritek or Verbatim to see if you get any improvement.

    Many people on this forum have problems with Roxio - it does not tend to play well with other programs.

    You could try downloading and burning with DVD Decrypter.

    I agree. Try another burning program (Decrypter which is free) or Nero. Also, burning at a lower speed (2x) will ensure a cleaner burn, and really doesn't take that much time. I just burned a 2 hour, 4gb DVD file at 2x using Shrink/Nero and it took less than 30 minutes total. Course, time depends on your system's resources.
