  1. I usually use DVD Shrink to burn my videos. Lately I decided to use imgburn. When I do, when it checks for errors, I get errors every second. Says over 22 hours left on checking. I stop the error checking.

    The DVD's play on my DVD Player.

    Why does Imgburn give so many errors? What's going on?

    Thank you,
    Chris.

  3. The imgburn post-burn verification algorithm conflicts with DVD decryption such as AnyDVD. You need to temporarily disable any decryption software before using imgburn, or its error verification will go bananas after the burn. Alternatively, if the disc being burned is not vital or irreplaceable, just disable imgburns verification feature until you really need it. Otherwise, you might have some other software conflict going on: even with really bad media, you would not get a readout saying "this entire disc is nothing but errors" like you're seeing. ImgBurn makes fantastic burns, perhaps the best, its just the post-burn error verification system can get stymied by other software you might be running in the back ground. If thats disabled, ImgBurn's error verification will almost always work perfectly. If all else fails, use other software to check for errors afterwards and you'll probably find the discs are perfect.

    I burned an awful lot of DVD's using DVD Shrink. Back when the code was written Nero was really the only burning software worth having. So dvd shrink was written to use nero if you told it to. That made the dvd rip and burn all one process. Never say never.

    Just to clarify: DVD Shrink had a feature that turned the burning process over to Nero, but DVD Shrink did not do the burning itself. (There is a mod version of DVD Shrink that can launch ImgBurn as well.)

    You did not describe your source video. I suspect the errors are a copy protection issue. (DVD Shrink has not been updated in a long, long time and cannot handle newer copy protection.) Better to rip to hard drive with DVDFab. If copy protection is not the issue, then the problem would most likely be with your disc media. You did not mention the brand of blank discs you use, but if you are not using either Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden, you are asking for headaches.

    Hech54 knows this.

    2nd, no NERO was NOT the only burning software worth having
    Shrink was written to utilize DVD Decrypter which was a much better program to burn dvd's with.

    But Hech54 is correct, DVD Shrink NEVER burned to disc's!!
    It had an OUTSIDE program do the actual burning.
    Nero or DVD Decypter.

    As for the OP's question, hard to say seeing as you have provided absolutely ZERO information!

    What was the original source ?
    What type of dvdr's are you using ?
    Ect. ect. ect. ect.

  8. I tried to play the disc in my home theater. "Cannot Play Disc" message.

    I thought heck with this crap (imgburn). I *Burned it in DVD Shrink and it plays perfect.

    *If I open DVD Shrink, it goes through the process, always showing DVD Shrink, I call that Burning with DVD Shrink. Even tho it borrows nero to do the actual burning.

    Thank you for the reply's,
    Chris.

    P.S. If you have trubble using Imgburn, remember, it sucks.

    most likely you used bum discs. nero isn't in the same league as imgburn. nero is one of the few programs i won't even allow on any of my computers.

    The most common sources of trouble are dodgy media and newbie pilot error, not the software. Imgburn is widely acknowledged as vastly superior to Nero, so your PS is BS. It's much more likely that you used bargain-brand media, or touched the surface of the disc prior to burning, or accidentally burned as data, instead of as DVD.

  12. Noahtuck,

    If you read what happened, you seem not to really know what your talking about.

    Maybe you didn't read my post, or got it mixed up with a different one?

    Oh, yea, maybe the media I'm using for the last year is the problem.

    Chris.

    I'm confused! Are you complaining about verify errors on discs that still work, or don't they work?

    Use Shrink to generate an *ISO* file (not VIDEO_TS folder), and burn that with ImgBurn...this will ensure the disk is generated with the correct filesystems (ISO9660+UDF)

    I KNEW there was a reason I was rude and dismissive to your original post...you really ARE an idiot.

    Next time when you decide to blindly bash the best burning software
    ever created...spray paint it to a wall somewhere where you won't get
    picked apart instantly by intelligent people.

    happydog500,

    If you post the burn log that ImgBurn provided for the bad burn in question, I'll be happy to tell you what the real problem with the burn was, and help you find a real solution.

  19. Just as Orsetto said, AnyDVD will interfere with disc verification. (And probably DVD43 will as well). So if you've left it running while attempting to verify, there's the source of the problem.

    If that's not the case, then consider the other probable suspects, most especially bad media.
    Pull! Bang! Darn!

  21. Never argue with a fool and never feed a troll.
    As to the original question: turn off verify and use better media.
