Well, I found out what was causing the problem, finally. What doing some browsing this morning searching for a possible answer, I found a description of some problems caused by Nero 8 and DVDShrink. I have just recently upgraded to Nero 8 Ultra Suite and did not even think that was a possibility. Well, I uninstalled Nero 8 and went back to Nero 7 (7.10) and everything is working again. Just thought I'd let you know, temeteus82.
