Ok…I’ve been using DVD Decrypter to rip my movies (VTS files) which is working fine. My problem lately has been my DVD Shrink. I use Shrink to burn the full disc straight to a DVD+R disc (with the Nero 6: 6.6.15).
It use to work for the first 3 months but for the past 2 weeks it’s been acting up. It will encode fine. Right before it gets to the burning process, my DVD burner makes a loud noise and the LED blinks rapidly (if the burner is working, the LED would blink in a slower pace…don’t know if you needed that info). After the noise, the burn process would stay stuck at 2% for maybe 20-30min and then the “Burn Process Failed” window appears.
Before I would just take the main movie and it would work SOMETIMES…but not anymore. I tried Nero 7 but came up with the same results. I also tried using Clone DVD to burn the full disc but it does the same thing Shrink does. It would encode but will stay stuck right before the burn process.
I looked for updates for Nero 6 but everything’s up to date. I checked for updated drivers for my DVD burner (TSST Corp TS-H552D) but it already uses the latest driver. I tried uninstalling the burner then installing it…nothing. I actually redownloaded Shrink after uninstalling it. For some reason it worked for the first DVD but after that it went back to not working.
Other programs I have installed in my PC: DVDFab Decrypter, FixVTS, RipIt4Me, DVD Region Free CSS, Clone DVD, AnyDVD
I have a Gateway Computer with Windows XP Media Center.
I was thinking maybe I have a virus since it use to work or maybe I have a program that’s conflicting with Shrink.
If anyone knows what I can do or maybe another way of burning the full disc (with menus) please let me know…
