Dvdshrink is the way to go. Did you burn the disc correctly? Did you let dvdshrink do it for you? Is it a +R, -R, -+RW, -RAM, etc?

Some stand alone DVD players are picky about media you use. Sometimes they only like a certain brand (aka not cheap ones). Also I think some DVD players have a better time w/ different type of DVD recordable media .. one that plays +R might not play -R and vice versa.

-edit- You should perhaps go to a site like doom9.org and punch in your dvd player model and see if it pops up in there forum. Or you could even do a google search.

use dvdshrink and save the output and then copy to the VIDEO_TS folder of a nero Dvd video project, or let dvdshrink burn it directly.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
