Hi Guys, I'm having some probs with DVD Shrink and I don't know what to do about it. After opening Shrink I then select "Open Disc". Shrink reads the disc with no problems. I then select "Backup", immediatley I get a message box pop up which says, "The Nero Serial Number has expired". Why does it say this, I mean Nero isn't even open at this stage?? The message goes on to say, "Only the slowest burning speed will be available". So, I click ok, and this box disappears. I then get the box where it asks you to select Backup target & target image file. I select Hard Disk Folder, as I already have a file on my desktop set up. I select ok, and the decrytion box pops up. All seems well, until....a few seconds later I get another message box popping up saying. "DVD Shrink encountered an error and cannot continue. Copy protection error, the request could not be performed because of an I/O device error". What does this mean? Am I using cheap and nasty?media. By the way, the media I'm using at present is, Datawrite DVD-R. I must be honest and say I bought them very cheap from a well known online auction. That said, I would appreciate any advice anyone would be kind enough to give. Sorry for the long post. Thanks. Shaun.
