    Do you happen to have ANY other programs that are utilizing the drive at the same time??

    You should update your Shrink version (to 3.2). It sounds like something else is using trying to utilize you drive. Try shutting off everything else that is running in the background on your computer. The quick and easy test way is to use the task manager and shut off everything except your antivirus. The longer more permanent way is using msconfig (there are other ways)if you want to do that let me know and I will give you step by step directions. Try the latest version of Shrink first then the task manager.

    If you have autoplay enabled or just choose to view the DVD (Power DVD, WinDVD etc.) prior to starting Shrink analysis, you can encounter this error. Agree with Michigan, another program is addressing the drive.

    I just downloaded the 3.2 and that is the one that was giving me the error. I tried another dvd this morning and it gave me the message again, then i tried it again and it went ahead and let it open the disc without giving the error. Thanks for all the advice if it does it again I will get the step by step directions from you. Thanks again.

    hi! i am a newbie whom (i believe) should be in the the dumb newbie section (is there one?)
    i am also having the same problem opening disc for hidden tiger crouching dragon.
    i am already using dvd shrink 3.2 and use end it all to stop anything running in background.
    i used dvd decrypter to write files to my hard drive with the plan of using shrink to compress and then nero to burn but when i try to find files i cannot open them (decrypter has created them as .mds) i don't know if this makes a difference?
    i have had various problems burning discs but i have always managed to suss it out but this has got me stumped!
    please help!!!

    ps i just tried a different DVD and there was no problem?
