    I heard at one point that you have to install one before the other in order for it to work properly? which do I install first and second?

    I heard the same thing some time ago now, and the "techie" advice given to me was something like Install Nero last. This sounds like great advice also....yeah Nrth16? Well after a short time here at AD, I rekon that the advice given to me was somewhat of a myth. Strange that I've actually heard of this again! It's been my experience that with current versions of Nero, that it really doesn't matter which app is installed first. Restart your pc after each install and all should be ok.

    Now I'm gonna get shot down in flames....... you wait and see. LOL

    If you could possibly explain, that would go a long way into clearing the air.

    I don't see anything written/typed that would of been considered bashing, but what do I know?

    I do know that the correct order for installing the two are as discovered by Nrth16, first install nero then shrink. Shrink scans for and attemps to detect a nero install on your system so that it can properly be set-up to use nero. The same goes for DVD decrypter or imgburn (if you use the version of shrink that autoburns with imgburn), install them first then install shrink for proper detection and operation using shrink with those two apps.

    I don't understand this post.. when I was burning with Nero, I never had to use anything else like a Decryptor or DVD shrink, I just used Nero, and that was enough.. what are these needed for?

    Looks like you burned your video files to DVD manually.

    The short/quick answer to your question without getting into detailed info is:

    Shrink itself doesn't have a burning app built in, but it can be used to auto-run other burning apps like nero, imgburn or DVD decrypter to auotmatically burn the ripped video files to a DVD disk. So.....the question was what is a correct install order for this to happen correctly.

    I know, I was just wondering if I was maybe supposed to have the DVD shrink also since I had Nero.
