    That title may have Sony's new ARcoSS protection on it. DVD Decrypter is able to bypass this protection so it may be worth a shot to use it to rip then open the files with Shrink to compress them :)

    I backed up my copy with no trouble at all. I also backed up just the movie with no menus or extra's.. Works great..

    I used shrink followed by decrypter in ISO mode for Van_Helsing.Worked fine at 2.4x write speed.
    Did you select the directors comentary version in shrink"s re-author mode by mistake,as they're basically the same size.

    Thx you guys for your help :O))

    I found that i got it working when i left the ac ch 5.1 checked

    i tried unchecking it at first to get better quality (like i do on some of the movies i burn)...but buy unchecking ac ch 5.1...i got nothing but commentary

    when i checked it...it worked great :O))..thx again ya'll.. if anyone knows how to compress any more in automatic....please tell...some movies are already 100% compressed...some are only 47 % compressed....thx again

    Hi all. :)

    flabob, removing AC3 5.1 is usually a bad idea, as more often then not it will be the movie main soundtrack.
    In general, AC3 2ch streams are commentaries of some sort. ;)

    To decrease the required compression, have you tried doing movie-only backups?

    You're welcome. :)

    If you have the time, I'd suggest you check the other guides too. ;)

    I used Decrypter and Shrink with no problems. I do have a question though. Did the quality of this movie off of the orignal seem sort of "rough" to anyone else?

    Yes, it did seem rough. But, after comparing the original and the DS 3.2 version, they had the same appearance. My guess is that the final output was something the production company wanted...a celluloid or "shot on old film" look. Kinda like the real b/w photos that were shot/developed on silvers; not the digicam look of today.

    You're welcome, flabob , glad you liked the tut. :)

    Keep in mind it is only an example, so simply drag the title(s) [bold]you[/bold] want to include on your backup. ;)

    Use DVD Shrink preview feature to identify what each title corresponds to.

    Whether you make a movie-only backup, movie+extras, or a compilation of titles from different DVDs is entirely up to you. ;)
