I think that shrink is on it's last leg...All the problems recently are not your disk/ scratches/ etc etc... We have to realize that there are new copy protections out there and shrink just isn/t doing it any longer... Either switch programs for now and stop spending countless hours (like I have ) to try and figue out why shrink is not decrypting any longer.We haven't seen much support but only speculations.I too have used shrink for over a year with no problems.. I know its not my drive / I havent changed media any no I haven't reset any parameters. In the long run if You start tweaking around you'll probally just make it worse!! I guess patience is our only recourse and hope peoplew new to burning wont get to discourged.
