I can burn from DVD shrink to Nero 7 on my Tower. The problem is my laptop. HP zv6000, XPhome, DVD+RW TSSTcorp TS-L532M. Checked forums and found this entry Hey tybytiger, I encountered the same problem a while back. In addition to checking the box "enable burning with Nero" in shrinks preferences, (edit/preferences/file I/O tab), you must also make sure that your burner drive is selected as the target device. You may have your hard drive selected, as I did. Once you click 'Backup', you will get to the screen that allows you to set the target device. Hope this helps. Doo Followed directions and no help. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
