As noted DvdFab Gold does not compress so if the movie is double layer you will need to either use two discs or use a double layer disc with a double layer burner. DVDShrink was an excellent program but is not longer being upgraded which means it will not handle the latest protection schemes such as Sony is using on some movie DVDs. DVDFab Platinum Express Mode decrypts, compresses, and burns (via either VSO or Nero). Gold decrypts, splits the files if needed, and burns. DVDFab Descrypter just decrypts It does not burn. To burn a file after decrypting you may need to compress the files or split them up for two discs, and then burn.
I suggest that you use an RW disk for first burn or to at least watch the movie from the temp files on your hard drive. Chances are that your problem is with you DVD burner hardware or even more likely with the DVD blank discs that you are using.
BTW, I find that the compressed files using DVDFab Platinum in Express mode are excellent quality. I only use the Gold mode for movies that I consider collectible and want to keep to watch again and again.
