I recently installed a BenQ DQ60 dual burner. It came with Nero Express 6. I tried to copy a DVD and got a â€œwrite protectedâ€ error.
I then purchased DVD Shrink 3.2 and it wouldnâ€™t let me copy due to the region setting on my BenQ drive.
I then downloaded a free trial of Region free CSS and got Shrink to work in a compression mode to 4.75g but not in dual recording on a 8.5g disk.
I then downloaded a free trial of Platinum and got copies of Express Mode and Gold Mode. I then uninstalled Region Free CSS.
I made a perfect copy of a DVD on a 8.5g dual layer disk using the Express Mode.
I went back to DVD shrink and noticed that my region setting is still showing “region free” after deleting Region free CSS. (Thatâ€™s strange?)
I am wondering now if I should buy Platinum of just Express? Why would I need Gold? It appears that Platinum is just two programs bundled. Or is there something else there I donâ€™t see?
Also, Do I even need Shrink if I have Express? Platinum or Gold?
Itâ€™s just too confusing sometimes huh?
