    Hi all:

    I installed the latest Imgburn.

    I first ran dvd shrink v3.2, I edited a one hour movie I had on a dvd that works fine but I wanted to remove some of the beginning and end of the movie.

    In Shrink I made an .iso file. I loaded it into Imgburn and burned a resultant dvd.

    I played the dvd on my TV set-top DVD player and it worked fine.

    BUT when I went to watch it on my Win7(64) computer my VLC Media player said it could not open the disc. I tried it on other programs I have on my computer and none could open the disc to play the dvd.

    I brought it to work and it opened fine on a Win7(64) and a XP machine.

    Does anyone know what could cause this?

    Thanking in advance.

    If you have the ISO, run VLC > Media > Open file, highlight the ISO and click 'Open'.
    Does it play ok?

    The day before I was fiddling with VLC's settings.

    I completely removed the program using GeekUninstaller (which also removes any reg. key associated with only that program). Now everything seems to be OK.

    I must admit I was messing with the settings in VLC the day earlier - I uninstalled VLC and the problem went away. Strange.

    If you want to keep using VLC, try the portable version.
