    Need more explanation - what version of DVD shrink are you using, have you updated your DVD player's firmware, does it work when doing a straight copy of other files, etc.etc.

    The DVD Shrink version almost has to be 3.2. It has been this for many years now. I use a purchased software called AnyDVD from Slysoft... I have only seen "read" errors caused by severe scratches on the DVD itself. There have been a few DVD 's that were "too large" to copy. The firmware update may be a good idea, and maybe a new burner is in your future. They don't burn forever ;)

    DVD Shrink won't copy all disks. You've managed to find some of the ones you can't copy with it.
