Hello. Hi Juhnny. You might try a different media. Tdk media is not too bad but you might want to try Verbatim, riteck ridata, or maxell. Tdk may vary in quality and a better media may help. you also might recheck your DVD Shrink settings,Nero settings just after backup. It sounds like your process time is not too bad. Mine takes 40 mins on regular encode and Nero burn. With the deep analysis it takes 1 hr 10 mins. Plus I rarely burn over 4x. You might want to list your pc specs: processor,speed,ram,harddrive,empty harddrive space and you burner model and specs. Do you have sp2? Have additional dvd software like roxio,sonic,etc? Are you keeping the size under 4300 mbs? This info will help, laterHP a1118x-b/athlon 64-3300+/BenQ 1650 BCDC/LG 8163B/Modded Wii/Epson-R300 and Ty Watershields!!!
