Problem 1. Have been using Shrink dvd to backup purchased DVD's so my kids don't wreck the originals. Have been having "program not responding" errors when I try to re-author a disc. This will happen multiple times, each time freezing when I select either re-author or after opening a disc & select a title, even after analysing the disc. Then after a few goes at it, it will work fine, allow me to choose what I want to backup for burning, backup okay & burn okay. A friend of mine is having similar issues. I always delete the previous "backup" & have defraged the hard drive, still the same issues. I"m using Athlon XP 1800, 1GB memory, 40 GB hard drive & windows XP Professional.Any suggestions ??? Problem 2. The disc's I have backed up & burnt whether compressed or not play fine in all three of my kids computers with their own stand alone DVD player (WinDVD), but have freezing issues & momentary sound drop out, with my Toshiba SD 1300 stand alone player. I'm using "A" grade DVD-R media and am unsure what the problem may be. Any suggestions ???
