    Hi jomel,

    I'll try to help but as I'm sure you're aware your English is a bit rough –

    First off, you couldn't have had your settings correct in DVD Shrink, try this guide –

    “Uncle” ScubaPete’s step by step, easy-as-pie, “Newbie Starter Recipe” for DVD Shrink 3.2.0.15 and Nero Ultra Edition 6 -

    We will start our dish with a main ingredient of DVD Shrink 3.2 ~
    It's FREE, can do almost everything you could wish in as few as 3 steps - It will rip your movies (gets rid of that "pesky" copyright protection thingy ;-) and it does it in generally 1 to 3 minutes.

    It can be used for your smaller DVD-5's (<4.36GB) and it also allows you to compress your larger DVD-9's (>4.36GB) to the necessary 4.36GB in order to insure a nice burn without encroaching onto the very edge of your DVD disc. The finished product is sure to please with no significant loss of video or audio quality.

    "But wait there's more - " (as the late-night info-mercials always say - -
    For those who like the backups "Their way" (a US colloquium, referring to a hamburger from Burger King) it also allows you to tailor your DVD's however you wish. To keep in or remove foreign audio streams, i.e. Subterranean Morlock Mush-Mouth, Siberian Rumble-Rut or Eastern Himalayan Yak language selections, Director's comments, extras or trailers, all that is required, should you wish to do so, is to click and drag a line in Re-author, it couldn't be easier. It's your choice, backup your entire DVD or just parts of it.

    PLUS, if you have Nero somewhere on your PC, DVD Shrink will work behind the scenes hooking up with Nero and then burning your files to your blank DVD "automatically" while backing up everything you do to your Hard Drive and there it provides you with a nice, neat VIDEO_TS folder for you, perfect to have Nero burn.

    The above-mentioned software Nero OR CopyToDVD may be used as default burners, either will allow DVD Shrink to control your burn your DVD "automatically". Make a note: Nero is also an excellent software program with many extras you are sure to use in the near future. Consider it seriously for a software purchase after your free trial expires. CopyToDVD is an exceptional burner that may also be used, hand-in-glove, with DVD2One, a great joining and processing program.

    A complete, FREE, DVD Shrink program download and step-by-step guide can be downloaded from -

    Shrink download - http://www.dvdshrink.org/

    To get you going with that "Automatic DVD writing thingie" that DVD Shrink is capable of doing for you, may I offer you Nero Ultra 6. I suggest you download the guide in case you wish to use it for the many other things Nero Ultra 6 is capable of doing for you :)

    A 30-day, free, fully functional Nero 6 download can be had here:
    http://www.nero.com/us/631939541422774.php

    A Great Nero, step-by-step guide can be downloaded from –
    http://www.dvdshrink.info/nero-video.php

    (Always check with us before purchasing Nero as we come across “Specials” from time to time that can save you some dough. )

    To make sure we have a perfect burn today may I strongly suggest that you PRINT THIS GUIDE OUT NOW so that you won't miss a single step -

    HINT
    I create a folder on my Desktop named " All DVD Work" and before ripping my DVD's I create another sub-folder with the name of the movie I'm backing up. (i.e. "All DVD Work\Kill Bill does the Limbo 2.")

    Let's go over our settings for DVD Shrink.
    When we open DVD Shrink, go to "Edit," check to make sure that "Full disc Backup" is checked. Next, go to "Preferences," where is says "DVD Target size" I select "Custom" and in the size box I put 4260MB. That allows you a bit of wiggle room on your disc so that you're not writing to the very edge of your disc. NOTE: A 4.7GB disc only holds 4.36GB of data. I like a tiny bit of room when I burn hence, the 4260MB instead of 4360MB. Make sure the "User preferences" boxes are all "ticked". Under the "Preview tab" be sure the "Enable video and audio preview" is "ticked". Under the "File I/O tab," - "tick" "Enabled overlapped I/O" and "Check RPC drive region code".Under "Burn settings," "tick" "Enable burning with Nero." NOTE: When you wish to have Nero do it's "Automatic burning thingie" make sure this box is "ticked." Tick this box now ! DVD Shrink can also burn an ISO image with DVD Decrypter, when you wish to use DVD Decrypter as your burning engine, make sure this box is "un-ticked." When you are finished, click "OK."

    Well, Alrighty then, are you ready ? Good ! Let’s do us an entire DVD backup - -

    The proper discs are extremely important and can make the difference between a good backup or a "Coaster". (A coaster is a disc which didn't burn correctly and therefore is good for nothing other than a beer coaster. Lol) For starters, here is some recommended media, RiData, Sony, TDK, Ritek G04, Verbatim DataLife, Verbatim DataLife Plus media boasting "Advanced Metal AZO", Taiyo Yuden's and generally, almost any discs manufactured by Mitsubishi are excellent bets. Other media could very well cause errors, only the very best media should be used for DVD Video backups. Now is defiantly not the time to put your, "Boy did I save money buying this crappy cheap stuff." in – ")

    Place your original in your DVD ROM drive (if you have 2 drives) and put your blank in your burner's drive tray. If you only have the one drive - put your original there and continue on - when your blank is needed, that is the time to swap discs. Click "Open Disc" - find your drive and click "OK," - DVD Shrink is now ripping your DVD - Cool Huh ? If you want an entire disc, which we do today, everything is completely "Automatic" - (Just to make sure, check the top of the window, "Full Disc" should already be "depressed" - Now don't get upset, it likes being depressed, I just don't want you being depressed - ) - (lol) OK, then, moving on - -

    When you click "Backup" in DVD Shrink, a box will come up saying "Backup DVD." Under the "Target Device" tab where it says "Select target device" choose your burner's drive. Where it says" Target Folder:" click "Browse" and trace your path back to "All DVD Work\ Kill Bill does the Limbo 2 ". Under the "DVD Region" tab, make sure "Region Free" is "ticked".
    Now, under "Quality Settings", if it's SPEED you're after, "un-tick" the box which says, "Perform deep analysis" and "un-tick" the box for "Compress the video with high quality adaptive error compensation". This will give you acceptable DVD backup.
    If it's QUALITY you're after and have some extra time to spend, "tick" Perform deep analysis" before backup to improve quality AND "tick" "Compress video with high quality adaptive error compensation." There you may adjust quality enhancements. Practicing with the settings can produce even better end products. For a no-frills DVD's like "There's something about Mary" I like Extra Smooth BUT for DVD's with a lot of special effects, I use the Extra Sharp setting. That's for me, you'll have to decide what you like :) If all the boxes are "grayed out" that's OK, it means your DVD is small enough that little will be lost from the original. While we're in the neighborhood, let's go to "Options" and "tick" the "Run backup in low priority mode" box. Good, now click "OK". - Guess what, we're done and done !!
    DVD Shrink will place a copy of your DVD's files in a folder named VIDEO_TS and a folder named AUDIO_TS. This last one is empty so you need not worry about it. When all the compression etc. is finished DVD Shrink will open Nero and use it's burning engine to burn your backup to your disc. You won't see it, you'll just see DVD Shrink's preview window on your desktop. Feel free to minimize it if you wish BUT, use your PC for nothing else until this work is done.

    Last step: “STEP AWAY FROM THE COMPUTER !”

    Clear the room then, clear your throat and yell, “Burn Baby BURN ! ”

    Do not fold, spindle, mutilate, molest nor fondle the keyboard. GO AWAY !
    Ms. Computer will let you know when she is finished, everything is good, don’t mess with it now !

    Now when DVD Shrink is finished, it will give you a VIDEO_TS folder and an AUDIO_TS folder in your "C:\All DVD Work\ Kill Bill does the Limbo 2" folder. Now, if you need to burn a second DVD copy, days down the road, all you have to do is give that folder to Nero or any burning engine and nothing needs to be done, it can be burned directly to disk. At one point in time I had 23 movies sitting there, just waiting for my shipment of blank DVD media to arrive. My suggestion would be, – after you have checked to make sure your copy is fine and you're through making more, delete the movie from your HD. They can build up rather quickly and overrun your PC (Lol). Of course you can always do as the ScubaPete does and buy another Hard Drive (Heh, heh.)

    For your next problem,

    If you are going to burn your DVD Shrink files with Nero after they're on your HD, use Nero Classic Burning ROM, NOT the Wizard or Express. Browse for your folder in the New Compilation Window. Staying clear from those mistakes will provide you with error free backups.

    Remember, when you're lQQking for a guide with a demented twist, shop ScubaPete.

    Enjoy your ScubaPete backup,

    Oooohh yea, we are expecting you to stop back to the forum and tell us how this guide worked for you – We'll be a'lQQkin for you :)

    Can you still burn with other softwares (e.g. DVD Decrypter)? If yes, then probably something wrong with Nero; if not, then probably something wrong with the set up (DVD drive, driver, or system). Alternatively, you may run system diagnostics to check out the above.

    Are you using a OEM version of Nero? If so, it is likely that the DVD burning function will be disabled.

    You can download a working trail version from the Nero website.

    It's OK jomel, I'm keeping up with you :)

    If you go through the guide I posted and check all of your settings everything should work alright, Yes ? You can also use the Nero link to download Nero if you don't already have it. Seeing as how you have already found your "Video" files you seem good there -

    As far as the second step, if you are using DVD Shrink to create a VIDEO_TS folder with VOB's inside, I recommend that you use Nero's Burning ROM to burn those files to disc – Here's a guide for that –

    First - Do not use Nero Wizard -
    Please follow along EXACTLY - (might even want to PRINT IT OUT, it'll make following easier, don't ya know ?)

    In case you're finding Nero's Burning ROM hard to find (sometimes it really is hiding (Lol). Go to "Start", "All Programs", "Nero", "Nero 6 Ultra Edition" and there you'll find "Nero Burning ROM" :)

    When you open Nero Burning ROM, you will be at the “New Compilation” window. Directly under the title “New Compilation” is a choice block to choose either DVD or CD, choose “DVD”. Directly under that click on the “DVD Video Icon.” Then click “New” in the upper right corner of that screen, NOT the main screen.
    You now are in the “DVD Video” window. In the left screen, click “VIDEO_TS”. In the “File Browser” screen, 3rd from the left, trace your path to the VIDEO_TS folder, the one you made earlier holding all of your files and click on that folder. All of your VIDEO_TS files are now opened in the right screen. Click on the top file, hold down the “Shift” key and then click the bottom file thereby hi-lighting the entire column of files. Click and (holding the left mouse button down) drag the entire column of files to the open screen, second from the left and release the mouse button.
    Now click the icon on the task bar that shows a match on a disc, and then click “OK” and now, clear the room, stand up tall and shout out, “Burn Baby, BURN” ! One more time, let me hear you say it, “Who’s your Daddy Now ???”
    Guess what my Friend ?

    You are done !!!

    Between checking your settings and using Nero's Burning ROM you should have no trouble doing a total backup, error free –

    Let us know how you make out, OK ?

    Pete

    jomel,

    Go to Start, then All programs, Nero, Nero Ultra Edition then Nero Burning ROM.

    OR, if you have Nero Express open, look down toward the bottom left-hand of the program and you'll see a "Flame" that says, "Nero" on it. If you click there, it will change directly to Nero Burning ROM -

    Cheers,

    Pete

    Every program you put in your PC should be there -

    I see what you did. You only downloaded Nero Photo Show and Nero Express - Download the entire Nero Ultra Edition. The one on top NOT the speciality programs -

    http://www.ahead.de/us/nero6-ultraedition.php

    Try it again -

    Cheers,

    Pete

    If you used the link I just sent you and "clicked" the top download button, the next page is this one -

    http://www.ahead.de/us/neroue-prog.php

    If you read this page where the link for Nero trial edition it says this -

    Content of Nero 6 Ultra Edition Trial Version:
    Package 1

    Nero StartSmart
    Nero Express 6
    Nero Cover Designer
    Nero SoundTrax
    Nero Image Drive
    Nero Burning ROM 6
    Nero BackItUp
    Nero Wave Editor
    Nero Toolkit

    PLEASE note that Nero Burning ROM is in fact there, it's not right in front, BUT again, IF you follow my previous instructions either using Nero Express OR All Programs you have to find it -

    Pete
