First message here..
I've been using the latest DVD Shrink to backup DVDs. I've successfully done this on a variety of titles. I recently started putting them on DVD-R. (Taiyo Yuden 16x - Supermediastore). I never compress titles though I reauthor sometimes. Discs work fine on a couple of players here.
I am using Win XP Pro w/ LG GSA-4163B. Burning with Nero6 Express (before 6.3.25, now 6.6.05)
Recently I've tried to burn DVD-Video on DVD9...I have some Ritek DVD+R DL 8.5GB 2.4x. I've tried 2 titles so far - they seem to work fine on the HD,[B] but there is a problem in the DVD Menu system when I burn it to DVD9.[/b] The cursor doesn't show up or causes a lock up when choosing certain items - like scene selections. On one title, it is there - but using arrow keys doesn't show movement, though I can select items. Does anyone know what is wrong? The menus work fine on the copy on the HDD.
I upgraded firmware from A100 to A105 last night, but still have issues - on the 2nd title I burned.
Titles are 1) Cry of the Snow Lion - scene selection doesn't work and locks up DVD player and 2) Shaolin: Wheel of Life - menu cursor doesn't show up. Also temporary freeze on what I believe the transition to the 2nd layer - though I can work around this by just fast forwarding.
The only other DVD+R DL I have ever burned is a data one on a Verbatim disc a while ago - it seems to work fine.
Could this menu freezing be a form of copy protection? I downloaded DVDFab Express Free and DVD Decrypter. I ran an experiment on a different DVD and the file size using DVDFab Express vs DVD Shrink is larger for Fab. What gives? How do these 3 decrypters compare when it comes to copy protection?
