    very sorry about the rules....I will not do that again.

    As far as my problem...I am using dvd shrink and dvd decrypter to burn my movies. After burning them the dvd will read in any other disk drive or dvd player. However it will not read in the burner in which it was burned in. The drive that I am using is an internal nec 3520 dvd +-RW 16x dual layer drive in a bytecc external cage. Please let me know what if any the problem is. Thank you for your help and again I am sorry about the multi post.

    Surprisingly it's not uncommon for a drive to fail reading a disc it burned. Have you tried updating your drive to the latest firmware? What all media have you tried so far? What speed are you burning at?

    I cant seem to find the latest firmware....maybe you could help me in that matter....I am running windows xp service pack 2....the media that I am using is Ridata 8X DVD-R and the speed that I am burning at is between 4X and 8X....dvd decrypter is set for max speed but it seems to prefer 3.9X to 4.1X.

    I couldn't find any updated firmwares either so unfortunately it's just a matter of time till one is released. You may want to try different types of media in the meantime - maybe a change will solve the problem.

    Try Sony Media DVD-/+R 8X which you can purchase at either a CompUSA or Staples store if you live in the US. They are preferred media for your NEC 3520 which is the same chip in my burner. If you have a problem with either of those, it is a problem with your burner for sure. What is the firmware # that you have in your burner now?
