I'm having weird problems with my Pioneer DVR-A05. I'm trying to back up my DVDs. Specifically, I'm working on Scarface at the moment and I'm using Imation DVD-Rs.
I've used Ulead Video Studio 7 to burn my home movies all the time - that seems to work well.
But when I try to burn the shrunken DVD files from my hard drive to a DVD-R using Nero, it doesn't want to work.
This is what I do:
1). Rip with DVD Decrypter
2). Shrink & save the shrunken files with DVD Shrink (the free software).
3). Burn with Nero 5.10
It does it at 1 speed but Nero has conked out on me whenever I try to burn this.
I'm thinking it could be the Imation disks but I use them for home movies and they work.
I also did a firmware upgrade to 1.33 but it wasn't working before the firmware upgrade also, so I don't think it's that.
