I have downloaded several movies from various sites and wish to burn them to disk. Am quite familiar with burning and have done it for years. Use DVD Shrink 3.2 normally to back a disk up and then Nero 22.214.171.124 Ultra Burning Rom to do the burning. Usually I have no problems. If I download an already backed up DVD Shrink file I have no problem but usually they come in either an image file or a winrar file format. I wasn't as familiar with the procedure of burning these files but did some research on forms etc.. and think I was doing them correctly yet don't seem to get anything but a coaster in return. With the image files. I simply go to Nero, open up the program and cancel everything until I am able to see just the nero burning rom screen. Then go to recorder, burn image, and locate the image I wish to burn. Then press burn. Everything seems to go fine. No error messages ever. It completes the burn fine yet when I go to play the movie I get an error message saying "unexpected dvd error" and the disk won't play. When I look at it from explorer the files all look complete, If I double click on the video_ts one it opens up and then will show the many other individual files. If I then click on one I can get the movie to start working so I know it is there. It must perhaps be some setting either in Nero maybe that is off or step that I am not getting to convert this image file to a prop dvd to be able to watch automatically. When I tried working with the winrar files I encountered a similar difficulty. I double clicked on one of the first files and it automatically opened up winrar and put the image back together. I built a folder to extract the image file to and pressed extract to. Once it was done I did relatively the same process as above and got the same results again. I know Nero works because we rented a movie last night and I used DVD Shrink to back it up and Nero to burn it and everything was fine. Just seems to be some issue with taking these downloaded image files and/or winrar files that when peiced back together to become image files and burn don't want to work for whatever reason. Have tried with a couple of brands of disks and a couple of different movie to see try and rule out chances of corrupt files and bad disks. Same results. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated. Hopefully I have provided more than enough information to let you know what I have tried and what I use etc..
