Have you tried the disk in another DVD player to elimate the fact that the DVD player could be at fault.

Delete the software and re-install. Might work, there's nothing to lose by trying this>

As DVD Shrink doesn't have its own burner, what are you using to burn the discs? Possibly a repair/re-install of that may be in order as well

I use nero to burn discs reinstalled that yesterday burnt disc still the same cheaked dma support ok could it be the aspi drivers seem to recall somthing about that said somewhere.

"Just to answer to those with any difficulty playing videos back on different machines:

1) Shrink your videos in ISO format with latest version of "DVD SHRINK".
2) Burn the ISO file with "DVD Decryptor".

This has been based on our personal experience."

I also use a BTC 1008 which is the same as the Emprex and have been having problems lately, the problem with the drive is it is very fussy about the dye on DVD discs and unfortunately when you find one that works well they change the dye on it, I've been having terrible trouble recently finding some printable discs that it likes, at the moment I've 2 different ones both with supposedly the same dye it likes one and not the other, the picture breaks up and jumps on one. Could this be the problem? for myself I'm going to have to replace the drive at sometime because I'm nearly pulling my hair out and I don't fancy being bald
