I've tried using dvdshrink to burn onto memorex dvd-r using nero express to make a whole movie backup. Everything seems to work fine until I try to watch the movie on my dvd players. Then it usually has lots of artifacts and doesnt play well (ie skipping feezing or reapeting among some of the symptoms). So I tried using dvd decrypter first and then shrinking and burning with dvd shrink using nero. And viola! everything works perfect. Anyone know why? And it happens on almost every single disk, doesnt matter the publisher. And one more thing nero express never seems to burn at the full speed of the media. For example, the memorex dvd-r are 8x but will only burn at 6x even though my drive supports 8x burn. and if i use a 6x dvd-r it burns at 4x??????
