    How old is your burner and what speed do you burn it at? Did you have the same problem burning with other software? I'm a newbie myself but have run into the same types of problems so maybe I can help a little.

    -Always use good quality DVD disks.
    -Burn at 4X speed or at 1/2 the rated speed of the disk.
    -Have shrink create smaller files sizes of 4300MB so as not to burn too close to the disks outer edge.
    -Make sure your burner is using updated firmware.

    Freezing or skipping is more likely a media issue. Out of curiosity what brand of media are you using?

    I've been using 1st class media; YUDEN, VERBs and Hitachi Maxell (MIJ) with customized all my backups to 4470MB and I've never encountered any freezing/skipping issue whatsoever.

    Best of luck!!

    Also if you have an old out of date burner it could make your movies skip also. I was previously using an old burner that came with my computer and my movies were skipping no matter what media I used. I've since gotten a new burner and now no more skipping problems. Also try burning at different speeds. I find that 8X works pretty well for me. Burning at max speed can cause skips sometimes too.
