just got my plextor p708 and an asus 16x dvd rom

i went to copy my rage dvd

i first used dvd x copy platinum and it copied and burned real fast, i dropped it into my xbox and it only plays till chapter 6

i was like wtf, so i did some more reading here at cdfreaks and realized i hadnt compressed the video

so i took some users’ advice here and used dvd shrink to rip the dvd so with compression to make it fit a 4.7 dvd+r (the dvd is around 5.6 gb) I did that then ripped the image to my hard drive, and it came out to be about 4.5 gigs and it created a nero image

i then burned the image, this by the way took alot longer than dvd x copy, after all this, i put the dvd and the same shit, doesnt get past chapter 6, but i can put this dvd in my rom and watch all the vobs

does anyone know wtf im doing wrong and what i should do before i blow another $3 bucks?

much help appreciated

You are wrong about the compression part.
DVDXCopy compressed the movie for you automatically. If it didn’t the movie wouldn’t have fit on the DVD.
Many people don’t use it because it’s options are a little more limited but it does all the steps you mentioned above automatically.

The problem sounds like a crappy media issue to me.

Use DVDInfoPro or DVDIdentifier to scan the disc and post back the media code.
Go here (skip the Kprobe section because it only works with LiteOn driver) and scroll down the area on DVDInfoPro & DVDIdentifier to see how to get the media code.
