    try lowering the burn speed, no multi-tasking during burn, and the obvious - check burner firmware

    If the playback problems occur near the end of the disc then reducing the target file size to 4,350MB will help too :)

    I agree with the guy that said Shrink and Nero. i ripped without ANY trouble with Shrink and burned with Nero. Now my original can reat while I enjoy the bkup! I had a lot of problems trying to burn with Other software. Nero has been winning that game hands down.

    Make sure you update your firmware regardless. up to date firmware makes for much better burns. I upgraded mine and am now able to burn at 8-16x with no problems. (I also had the same skipping and jumping during the last 20 minutes of movies.) Firmware tells your burner how to burn certain kinds of media, and is absolutely vital to keep up to date, otherwise your burner may not burn well onto certain media.

    The problem might not be the burn, it could be your standalone player. This kind of problem was common when DVD burners hit the market because some standalones had problems reading DVD media. What make of media are you using?

    As Neph stated a reduced target size can helpful if you're burning to close to the outer edge.

    You said you were using dvd-r media. You never said what brand of DVD player you were using. It may not be compatible with "-" media. You may have to use "+" media.

    Tell us what kind of player you have.

    Also, you said you were using expensive blank media. What brand are you using?

    I had a very expensive dvd player with dolby digital 5.1 outputs on it (Sony), which wouldn't play any burned media. I bought a $25 ESA from Circuit City that plays anything I throw at it.

    i used dvd-r and dvd+r for the movie SAW while using the full backup and it froze at the last 20 mins of the film but when in dvd shrink i jus used the main movie it worked perfect on all my dvd players but i hate the way the picture size is so small in widescreen when u re-author

    DVD shrink in re-author mode has nothing to do with the size of the picture. It doesn't alter the size of the video. That's pretty much set unless you use some sort of editor to change the aspect ratio.

    I know that VOB blanker allows you to change the ratio, but DVD shrink leaves it unaltered.

    If you're having those types of problems out of DVD shrink, you must be doing something different than everyone else.

    no ders definetly sometin different wen using re-author cus if u do the full back up the picture is full screen and this re-author isnt even widescreen its way smaller, alot of black bout 3/8 of the screen

    Your original probably has both the "standard" or "full screen" version and the "widescreen" version on it.

    You must have dragged over the "widescreen" version when you re-authored. There's probably two complete movies on your original. Go back and check it. I'm sure I'm right on this.

    In full disk mode, expand the "main movie" folder and see if there isn't two versions there. They will also show up on the right in re-author mode.

    I agree, I backed up the movie "SAW" using DVD Shrink in Re-Author mode. I use NERO for burning as well. As for DVD Shrink & Wide Screen & Full Scren, it's true that a lot of DVDs have BOTH versions on them. Usually Title 1 is Wide Screen and the next is Full screen, NO DVD Shrink does NOT alter the format whatsoever. By the way, my backup of SAW plays Great! DVD Shrink & Nero can back up most movies, except the "Arccos" (Sony) new ones. all by thereselves.
