Hi this appears to be an intermittent problem. DVD Decrypter extracts my DVDs to the Hard Disk no problem. DVD Shrink compresses and recodes the files no problem. However when it comes to burning using Nero 126.96.36.199 it starts and then the progress bar stops while the disc still seems to be running in the drive. In this instance it has stopped at 8%. I am using Datawrite 8x media. I have ASPI Layer 4.71 installed and Patin-Couffin layer v1.27 installed. I have NEC ND-3500AG drive. DMA is enabled. Any advice please?
