Hi, I've just begun attempting to burn some DVD-9's onto DVD-R discs but am having problems. I'm using Nero Recode 2. The DVD-9's are in .iso format. I have been mounting the images to a virtual drive and then analysing the TS_VIDEO file using Recode. All seems OK. The files are compressed to fit a DVD-5, recoding seems to go without hitch however the files are not playable upon completion. I have tried burning directly to disc and also as nero images to my harddrive. When mounting the new images, none of them will play. Sometimes I'm lucky if I get the first few frames of a scene/menu, but that's it my player locks up after that. Burning to disc is no better and I've tried various DVD players for playback. I've burned DVD-5 images using my DVD-R drive without problem in the past. As the recoded image files won't play once mounted to a virtual drive, I'm convinced this is something to do with the recoding process and not the burning, but I've tried 4 times now using two different DVD's to no avail. The log file generated by Nero recode suggests no problems have been encountered. Might give DVD shrink a whirl, just thought I'd post in case I'm missing something blindingly obvious. Any help appreciated. Bob.
