    och6985,

    Have you changed the way you've been backing up DVD's ?

    What are you using besides DVD Shrink ?

    What are you using for a PC ?

    How much free room ?

    What else are you doing when you try to use DVD Shrink ?

    Pete

    (Silly me,) Perhaps I should have asked,

    1. Do you know what the processor is that's inside your PC ?

    2. Do you know what the RAM is that's inside your PC ?

    3. Do you know what size the HD is that's inside your PC ?


    BTW, The last is a little important because it's my guess your PC is about to CRASH ! ! !

    For "No, No and No" - you better find out -

    You need at least 10 GB to backup a DVD. That's not 10GB free that's 95% of your HD which is the spot when your PV can no longer operate because it's too full BUT 95% then another 10GB to work on the DVD.

    You need to find out something about PC's before yours crashes and everything you have there is lost -

    You need to do some serious house cleaning, BIG TIME !

    Your PC needs some room to breath -

    Cheers,
