As you already have DVD Decrypter installed you should see this option in the burning section of DVD Shrink:



Just select burn with DVD Decrypter and the burning should be done automatic.

If you can't find DVD Decrypter in that window. Reinstall DVD Shrink.

No need to uninstall Nero if you are going to burn with DVD Decrypter.

You can erase/format RW discs in DVD Decrypter.

If you have Windows you have Windows Media Player. Not very good - but it's a player.

Here's something for you to ponder. There is a price for automating the burning with DVD Shrink. If per chance, something goes wrong with your DVD when you preview your end-product, you're stuck with it unless you were burning with DVD RWs.

Anyways, I personally don't use the automated burn option. I burn my output to my harddrive and preview it manually. It gives me an opportunity for quality control on deciding whether or not to burn it. Decreases my chances on getting coasters.

That's why alot of users always say, test before your burn and of course you can't test if you have your automated burn option on.

you are very right...so as per what you do, what would i need to do ?

- i think i will have to create a DVD burn image & save to harddisk ...right ? to burn later ?
- will any player be able to play this image ?
- and will any burner software (eg decrypter, nero 6, etc) be able to burn this image file ?

thank you

Get PowerDVD free trial, $$ to buy
or get Media Player Classic it's very good, and free.

Yes it comes as a .ZIP file, just unzip to a folder of your choosing, it doesn't have an installer program if that's what you mean. But you can set the file associations in the Options to automatically play media file types when you click on them in explorer, or put a shortcut on your desktop and drag and drop media files to it (including .IFO and .VOB files).

I don't know of any media players that will play ISO files directly, but DAEMON Tools is a very good freeware tool that can mount ISO images, then you can play them back with PowerDVD, MPClassic, WinDVD or whatever just as if it was a physical DVD in your drive.
