    If you have roxio, why not use it. It's been a while......

    Have shrink produce an ISO image file and save it to your hard drive. Right click on the .iso file and choose open or burn to disk (can't remember which one when using roxio), this should automatically run roxio's burning application, choose/click Disk at Once, the destination/burn speed/finalize the disk and wait for the process to complete.

    Try this

    Did you find the way to solve it? I have almost the same problem. Each dvd movie that I burned says T1 on my dvd player and that's it. It doesn't play the movie ! Any solution ?

    When I had Vista (I downgraded to XP), I never had a problem with DVD Shrink. I used DVD Shrink + DVD Decrypter + AnyDVD.

    Note: Windows Vista has many compatibility problem's and the program that you are using (I'm guessing Nero?) may not be compatible with Vista. It's one of the benefit's of using Windows Vista.

    Have watched this forum thread with a kinda interest as my monies have drifted away as I've tried to tackle Vista .v. the world. Spent a few bucks doing it so be careful. At end of day there is only one solution .... well three...for consistency.
    DVD43 > 1 Click DVD Copy 5 > img burn
    Then you will regain have what you lost b4 on windows XP with DVDShrink etc. Quality and consistency is even better. In all may cost you but not more than $60 if you do it carefully. Also, read the guidelines for each software and post up if you have a problem.
    Never gone back on a Windows release before but was within 48 hours of doing exactly that. All because I like backing up my DVDs for pete's sake. PS DVD43 runs in background so no worries but switch off 1 Click before you open imgburn or you'll get an extra week of strife......

    Garmoon..

    I'm not sponsoring DVD43 mate (although find its now good on those newer DVDs with corrupt UDF) - use different modes of decryption for various things ... professional and personal. Combination suggested is only a fix for the problems guys & gals like me were having here with Vista ..... works 100% without any problems.

    I was never fond of DVD43 either.

    I'll stick with the biggies. DvdFab and AnyDvd.

    I didn't mean to sound condescending. You're one of the first I've seen to say something good about DVD43. If it works for you then it's good. I've never tried it. To each his own.

    Nero 8 and Dvd Shrink don't work together. Use Imgburn. http://imgburn.com

    Poor playback is typically an issue with poor blank media. The regulars here seem to favor Taiyo Yuden and Verbatim.

    Both Maxell and Memorex outsource the manufacturing of their media so from spindle to spindle if you don't know what to look for you could be getting a different disc every time you buy a new spindle. Playback issues such as pausing, pixellation, stuttering usually come down to the quality of the media being used. As suggested by Skrewz, either Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim are you best bet for consistent quality.

    Imgburn replaces Nero.... http://www.dvdplusvideo.com/DVD_Shrink_3_2_b_w_IB.zip

    when the movie does play the quality of picture is fine...it is just that the DVD player does not seem to follow the normal logic of play progression that I was used to...will play movie previews but when i press the disc menu button it jumps to end of movie as opposed to showing menu that has scene selection etc..fiddling around using skip button etc can get movie to play...will try using imgburn instead of nero 8...thanks for help

    ptaylor19,
    If this is a newer movie then you need to also use (along w/ better blank media) DVDFAB HD Decrypter as DVDDecrypter and Shrink can not handle the newer structural problems that the studios add to the movies

    DVDFAB HD Decrypter can be found here and it is free:

    Still sounds like a media issue to me. Try using a top quality brand of blank media, burn at 6x or 8x, with no multitasking. You would be surprised how important good quality blank media is.
