Hello all, I have been using shrink for over a year now and have never had a problem with it. I have had a TDK DVD burner till that went bad and replaced it with a Sony DRU-710a. That Sony is nothing but a piece of junk. Always gave me pixelation problem when playing back on my Panasonic DVD player. I returned that and got a Plextor PX-716A DL burner. The plextor works fine. Dvd plays back with no problems. The problem i am having is that when i use shrink as of lately it is taking forever to encode the disk. I am backing up my Stargate SG-1 disks and it takes well over an hour per disk. I have checked my DMA setting, deleted and reinstalled them and nothing seems to work. Using DVD Decryptor and then using shrink seems to work but not using Shrink by itself. I also put shrink to copy files to HD if that helps?!?!?. My hardware is a Dell 8300, 80gb HD, 768 Ram. P4 2800.
