Thats kick ass ... thanks.
Anyway, I have had successful burning. I went and bought some dvd-r and dvd+r. I used dvd+r with DVD X Copy platinum. I must admit I really like this program as it is so quick, but found that about half way through the movie some blocking occured and froze the Pioneer DV-344. This only affected 2 chapters though as the rest of the disc was fine. I think that maybe it burns too fast, although I'm not sure.
I then re-tried still using the DVD+R's with DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink. I did and ISO with Decrypter then compressed with Shrink. Works fine - no probs at all. My only moan being that Shrink is very slow to encode (about 45-50mins) and burn (about 20-25mins). Also I think I wont bother with menus and extras in the future as it affects the picture quality due to extra compression needs.
Havent tried the DVD-R's but I like the DVD+R's I have which are 8x capable.
