I definitely do not consider myself an advanced DVD author and would appreciate any assistance at all. Lately, I have had problems burning any movie whatsoever to DVD-R. This is 4x Sky Media DVD-R. I have burned approx. 10 movies to this -R media, but now it is impossible. I am strictly talking about burning movies, not data, as I have no tried to do that yet. I use: DVD Decrypter 188.8.131.52 DVD Shrink 184.108.40.206 Intervideo DVD Copy 3 When trying to use Decrypter, I get an error saying something about Incompatible Format. When using the same software, same ISO, to burn to a +R, I have no problem. Like I said, I used to be able to burn to -R but not all of a sudden I cannot. I tried uninstalling, then reinstalling, still no fix. When using DVD Copy, burning takes approx. 3 days. Yes, that is not a typo, 3 days. It goes thru 2 loops. And I have never waited the full 3 days to wait for it to finish. When putting in a +R, it works right away and I have a finished DVD+R in approx. 40 minutes. I have an AMD Athlon 2400+, Sony DRU710A with BYX2 firmware (I think that is the latest), and running XP SP2. Please help.
