I authoured a DVD using AVS Video Converter and, then, use DVD shrink to reduce the size but when I try to burn it, it doesn't work. I tried this on two different discs (both times using a different one - first, I used Ashampoo 6 and, then, I used the Free Studio burner) and in the case of the Ashampoo, after the burning finished, the verification failed and in the Free Studio one, it gave me a disc error.
What should I do? Is my using DVD Shrink causing a problem?

Thread: Problem with burning DVD
DVD Shrink should be the correct size to fit within a DVD, I did take care of that and the size is not the problem. IF you mean something else, please clarify.
Also, you guys are telling me to use ImgBurn but I have VOB files, not an ISO image. So, I should convert it to an image first now? Which software should I use for that?
Thanks a lot for the help and I am sorry for the trouble my ignorance is causing you all.
DVD Shrink to begin with. You should have encoded it for the proper size in your conversion program originally.
So, I should convert it to an image first now?
DVD Shrink was that I was trying to put five clips of about 45 minutes in one DVD and for me to do that in the original conversion program, I would have to reduce the bitrate and, thus, the quality. From what I have seen on Youtube, they say that DVD Shrink doesn't lose as much quality and reduce the sizes a lot more (I have also done random clips on it and I think I would agree).
As for the ImgBurn, I don't really know how to do that. Which option should I use on Imgburn for that? The "Write Files/Folders to Disc"? Will this also allow me to play it on a DVD?
Sorry for the added trouble again!
AVS Video Converter you're using. In general, though, an encoder will produce better results than will a transcoder such as DVD Shrink. I don't know if your program transcodes or encodes. Maybe it transcodes in which case you're right - DVD Shrink will do a better job if you use it from the beginning. Transcoding followed by transcoding yet again still isn't such a good idea.
