    When I was young I had a Sharp Twin Deck Tape Player, in 'Deck a' I'd pop in something like Now That's What I call Music 10, and in 'deck b' a blank cassette, then simply press Record on 'b' and Hey Presto! A short time later I'd have a perfect copy... Why did copying ever get harder than this?

    I've been using Maxell disks for years, no problem what-so-ever untill now. I'll try lower speed media, so any sites where I can get it from would be appreciated, I'm in England.

    Thanks.

    Thanks creaky, looks a very good site.
    As binkie said, I do have an old drive, so it might be better if I just get a new one - I assume that would sort my problems out?

    What I still don't understand, and I'm sure there is a very easy and straight-forward explanation, why has it suddenly stopped working?

    @AndyCB -

    - an excellent choice of version there; i'm still using 6.6.0.18 and am not budging unless in the future i need to buy new burners that aren't supported in 6.6.0.18

    - those Ritek discs seem to be supported in the burners' firmware as they're showing up in this section

    - ...however something's not quite right... see next comments..

    - the ASPI drivers are supposed to be listed in this section, along with the ATAPI drivers. For the ATAPI drivers, fix via this - http://home.comcast.net/~bbmayo/FAQ.htm (i see DMA is ON for all your devices which is great but in Nero 6.x the ATAPI drivers should always show up in the 'Existing drivers:' section). I can never remember what the ASPI layer does, but it's not listed in the 'Existing drivers:' section either. Try installing version 4.71 from here - http://www.afterdawn.com/software/cdr_software/cdr_tools/aspi.cfm


    As to the burners' firmware being 2 years old (ie 2 years out of date), it basically means that newer discs that come out may not be supported or supported poorly, so if our suggestions get you burning successfully again you still might buy some discs that are too new for the firmware to recognise/know what to do with one of these days

    They don't do much on a XP system as a XP system uses SPTI.

    ASPI is only needed on the older Windows systems.

    It's working again, it was simply a case of using 8x disk instead of 16x - Thanks binkie =)
    I couldn't understand why it had stopped working after all this time, I'd almost always used Maxell disks but all of a sudden they stopped working, it never (and probably would never of) occured to me that the 16x wrote on the disk could be the problem! But looking at my other disks they all have less than 8x on them... so thanks again!

    Andy.

    Good to hear you are burning again

    Now when those 8x start to run out time to think about a new drive.
    So much cheaper now a days

    Is there an update for the older version of Nero, that supports lightscribe burning? I'm getting the TRF error using the bundled version of nero(LG burner).

    I don't want to give up the lightscribe capability, but burning directly through dvd shrink would be nice as well.

    After burning more backups then I can even count with relatively few issues I’ve recently run into this same problem.
    The weird thing about this is only some movies will produce this error others wont .
    Even weirder, it can be an old flik with simple encryption that will produce this error and a newer one will burn just fine.

    Whenever I get that error ….
    What seems to be working for me is to rip the Flik using AnyDvd or FabDecrypter then run it through VobBlanker …then let Shrink do its thing.
    After that process, Nero 6 .3.1.13 burns the flik just fine.

    I don’t get this.If this is a Nero issue why does VobBlanker seem to fix the burning problem?

    I'm going to say scam - here's just one clue from the website
    Unlike some download services that claim to be "free" we actually offer you the ultimate best value for a small upfront fee.

    Shrink is free - you never have to pay for it. But it's no longer updated so someone is just using the name and logo to draw people in and collect their $$.
    You can't always trust the ads listed on sites.

    Just think of all those who will probably fall for it!
    What a shame.

    I'd would definitely love the original Shrink to be updated and enhanced but I seriously doubt that will ever happen :(

    Oh and you welcome exxitar :)

    Be careful if you downloaded the latest version of anydvd and use it with shrink. You get a major failure as you get ready to encode. Anydvd just sent me an update so I will let you know.

    If this helps...i use nero 7 and dvd shrink very few problems and if any read errors or fails to read ect,use dvd decrypter and add to dvd shrink via the file icon,select iso cos decrypter leaves an iso file.Will still shrink the file and burn with nero as usual.all 3 work brill together for me.nero 7 for me was the best.good luck.

    Hi raedge
    The error you are getting is cause of your version of Nero - when Shrink hits the burn stage version 6.6.1.4 broke that autoburn connection.

    So simple fix - uninstall Nero, run the clean tool and install version 6.6.0.18.
    All the links and info are on page 1 of this thread.
