Default dvd burning problems

i usef dvd x copy to burn rambo 3. When I try to play the dvd using power dvd it freezes my computer and i have ejaect it manually for the computer to respond. If i point to the drive in power dvd or go straight to the files in mu computer it plays fine i also used dvd shrink do you think there is some special copy protection.

What sort of system resources do you have? To you have enough RAM? What sort of processor do you have? Could there be some sort of software conflict whereby both programs are trying to play the video at the same time? Try associating one program to play the video only.

Still weak, I know, but getting better:
CPU: AMD AthlonXP 2500+
1.8GHz @ 333 FSB
512 DDR 2700
160 GB westerndigital hd
Dual booted with XP/Fedora Core 5
PCchips M848A mobo

If i were you i would stick with dvd shrink or go with dvd decrypter,both of those do a pretty good job at removing copy protection for backing up your movie's,i myself use both and i have never had any problem's what so ever,as for dvd x copy it's not able to update since the company no longer exsit's so it wont be up to speed with all the latest encryption's.

r u able to play the dvd with any other dvd playing software on ur PC? how abt in a standard dvd player (the ones that r hooked up to ur TV) ?! If it still has problems then most likely the dvd wasn't burned properly .. or like u said, some sort of copy protection (although, i dont think a movie as old as rambo3 would have that good of a protection). good luck.

it look like your ifo stucture is mess up or you rip a scratched dvd

rip it with smartripper in backup mode then use shrink to encode the movie if it is the second one

if it is the first one

rip it in file mode with smartripper. use ifoedit to create new ifo's, then use shrink

shrink doesn't do a good job on scratched dvd
