I have a DVD Burner, it will only write to certain DVD-R, and some other types will not work. I also noticed a similar problem with some game units. IE: some older ps2 will not read ps1 disks after time. Is there a fix for this?

Sometimes these disks reach the end of their life after a couple of uses and can no longer erase/write. CDs and DVDs have a shelf life of about 10 years, but sometimes data can be lost in as little as 2 years. CDs and DVDs are best for storing music and video, where loss of data bits is not noticable. Back up critical data files in several media types (Hard disk, CD, DVD, Flash drive) to prevent loss.
Unfortunately, DVD Shrink probably does not support your LG external media burner. Some programs are built just for certain CD/DVD drives. You can probably find another program similar to DVD Shrink for free online.
There could be several things which are causing your CD burner not to act in the way it should.
I had a similar type problem after installing Windows XP, .Service Pack 3 onto my Sony VAIO model VGN-SZ330P. The standard Windows burner kept saying there was no CD in the drive but it would play both CDs and DVDs.
I went looking for an alternative and now use IMGBURN which is a free lightweight CD / DVD / HD DVD / Blu-ray burning application . You can find it at http://www.imgburn.com/.
I also installed CDBurnerXP which is another free application to burn CDs and DVDs, including Blu-Ray and HD-DVDs. It also includes the feature to burn and create ISOs, as well as a multilanguage interface. You can find it at http://cdburnerxp.se/en/home
The above does not tell you why your burner is having problems (and they could be numerous), it will certainly get the burner doing everything you need.
I'm not entirely familliar with this system
and also it appears to be discontinued from the manufacturer, http://www.mfdigital.com/
it may be possible to "clone" a disk from a working one using Norton ghost or something similar. (but that means finding someone willing to let you dissasemble their working one), with norton ghost you should be able to copy entire disk from the working disk to a new disk.
the manufacturer does have a firmware update disk for this but that most likely only updates the system once it is working.
