BOTTOM LINE: Copied DVDs play on laptop, but not in DVD players. Problem started this week. Same procedure used now as in years past (DVD Shrink/Nero). Some copies may play, but start hours into the movie and have unremoveable subtitles.
I have used DVD Shrink 3.2 for many years with great success and have been using it as such until this week. I have a new laptop (Gateway MC 7801u) with Vista 64, so none of my old programs work anymore. I had to download DVD Shrink, Nero, etc. again in order to be back in business (i.e. backing up my DVDs).
Both programs appear to be working just fine and have in the month that I've had my new PC. The problem, which just started this week, is that my copies of DVDs either do not play in either of my 2 DVD players, or they start hours into the movie and play the foreign subtitles (with no means of turning them off). All of the DVD's files copy (I checked between the original and the copies) and play just fine in my laptop.
Does anyone have a solution to this problem? I've not really seen this specific problem posted anywhere yet.
