Im trying to hook my cousing up with the ability to back up his dvd's. He has bought an 8x +- external usb 2.0 drive for his HP pavilion xf328 laptop. We have succesfully encoded the movie with dvd shrink and when done with that dvd decrypter automatically comes up and starts to write lead-in. Once this happens it gets stuck. It dosnt actually freeze, it just writes lead-in and dosnt start the burning process. We have also tried nero 6 which is what came with the burner and we get the same results. ive read throught the forum and havent been able to find anyone else with the same problem, any suggestions.. Thank you.
