    Is this with a particular DVD or all DVDs? When you say last 2 minutes, is that the last 2 minutes of transcoding before the program starts the burner software? Are there any error messages?

    ON some releases Shrink and AnyDVD haven't been working as well together as they use to. If it turns out to be copy protection, I'd suggest using RipIt4Me. With 1-Click mode it does everything you need and then opens the files in Shrink for you.

    BTW, what's wrong with lightscribe burners? I've got one. I just don't use it much for lightscribe.

    @axemurder-What stage is this the encode,or write stage, if it is right stage then try setting your target as iso image and use imgburner to burn image? What movie are you trying to backup?

    It is the last 2 min of encoding. But i think i figured it out.
    I was backing it up to an external hd thats wasn't sata so i tried backing it up to the internal sata drive and it worked so im guessing it just doesn't like non sata external drives now. The movie is crank

    @PacMan777 I have just had bad times with light scribe burners they seem to go out faster then non light scribe burners.

    External drives are sometimes more problematic due to the transfer rate. You just figured that out though. ;)

    The reason I asked about the lightscribe was because I have an HP I've been using for a long time. It's actually better at reading "less than perfect" DVDs than my highend Plextor. Hopefully it keeps up the good work for some time to come. ;)
