Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC

DVD burning-shrink/decryptor & Nero

  1. I am having difficulty w/ creating a DVD.
I downloaded (several times) Shrink & Decrypter.

Decryptor would stop part way through w/ a message:
  • I/O Error Slimtype DVD a A58a1HWH66 (E:) (ATA) Status 0x02 inter[retation: read (10) sector: 863237

It will then continue to download.

Then when I attempt to burn on shrink it says there is not file. I go to the file and IT'S THERE! (I checked the file name many times)

What is the problem? How can it be fixed? (please say "easy"!)

*The original disc I am using was one made by Shrink on another computer. It plays just fine in a DVD player (but not on my computer). Is this a factor?

  1. I attempt to set up Nero through a trial program. It stops after what appears to be downloading and will not run. I called the company and they just said "some computers do that"! They would not offer any other explanation. Can this be cured? If not do you have another recomendation for a simular trial (or free) program that is the same?
  2. When people send me short videos by email they will not open w/ a message about "ActiveX" problem saying there is not a program associated w/ it.(They have zero problem on their end). I started to download a ActiveX program till I was told there are many fake & dangerous downloads w/ this name on it. Is there a safe one you can recommend?
(I thank you for your kindness in letting me borrow your brain. If you ever want to get rid of some of it call me!)

It doesnt duplicate dvd's

You need special software to do this, and a DVD Burner.
If your dvd player/burner has the mark "DVD-RW" on it, then it is a burner.
If you are using Windows, then I suggest a program called dvd shrink.
It can shrink your dvd's to cd size, but it also can make a copy from dvd to dvd.
It's free, and you can download it here:
Also, if you don't have 2 dvd players and/or burners, then you will have to first have dvd shrink back up your dvd into a file, and then burn from the file to a new dvd.
I hope this helped you :) -Denny

How to burn video todvd using nero7 ?

1) Please make sure you start Nero Buring ROM I show here and NOT the Nero SmartStart.
2) The new complication comes up. If you see a Wizard close it (there must be a button down right which says Close Wizard or something). Open the pull-down menu I show and select DVD.
3)Select DVD-Video (1) from the list. Then just make sure the settings (2) are the same as shown here. Then click on the Label tab.
4) Here just put the label that you want your DVD to have. (It's the name that you see before your drive's letter every time you go to My Computer). After that click New.
5) At the left of your screen you see the folders of the DVD we are going to burn. Notice the VIDEO_TS folder is red. Double click to open the VIDEO_TS folder.
6) At the right of your screen you can see your hard drive. Browse to the folder where you have your DVD files (the files that DVD Shrink created).
7) Select all the files. I repeat: ALL the files.
8) Now drag and drop ALL the files you selected at the step before into the VIDEO_TS folder we opened before at your left.
9) This is how Nero should look after all this. Note that the bat at the bottom should be all blue, or with just a little yellow where it finishes. Now click the burn icon that I show with the arrow.
10) Here select just Write. Put the write speed for your media (for slower media like here, Nero reduces the speed from 4x to 2x, nothing to worry about) and finally click Burn!
Wait for it to finish and you will have a very nice DVD-Video disc!
