Default Burn Problems with Shrink

Hi guys

This is my first post, so greetings to all!!

And I hope that I am posting in the correct part of the forum.

My problem is with a recent series of DVDs I burned using Decrypter and Shrink

I have DVDShrink and am running MS XP. I have Nero 9 and Imgburn on my PC.

I am trying to burn a BBC DVD Life in Cold Blood it is a 2008 copy. I need to split the DVD into its various episodes hence using Shrink to re-author.

After using Decrypter then DVDShrink I can view the burnt DVD on Media Player but when I play the disk in my Panasonic DVD player I get the message “Unknown disk, please check disk again”. I have used the above 2 programs countless times with complete success so am confused this time. I burnt at x 1.

Is this a new form of encryption that Shrink can not yet cope with?

Maybe I have to finalise the disks somehow, although I never have had to before.

Shrink runs its full course and shows operation compete with no errors.

Thank you in advance for any assistance you can give me.

First - please carefully review rule 19. We can not diuscuss DVD Shrink or DVD Decrypter on this forum.

However, it sounds like you have an issue with your burning.

Post a burn log. In the meantime, read and implement the Golden Rules of Burning.

Thanks for the tip; I changed my burning program to Imgburn using a tutorial from your site. Now all is well.

Sorry to contravene the forum rules.
