Well i have both and unfortunately , i only have gotten shrink to work for me because i have a small hard drive i cant back up the file with decrypt , and then analyze and back it up to burn again after it gets compressed with shrin and I have had problems with nero ! And looking around this forum i have seen someone did the same thing i have done with the sellections to burn with Decrypter after shrinking it ! So shrink decrypts the movie backs it up and burns with decrypter ! All well and good but i am having a huge problem with the speed , Man alive some times it takes 2 minutes to analyze the movie but then it takes 3 hours to encode the movie ! I have looked into changing the drives from poi to dma and they are already set at that setting for DMA , does Anyone know what the deal is ! I have a dell inspiron 1100 2.4gmhz with a 20gig drive cdrw/dvd, with an external dvd-/+rw ! 256 megs of ram , What should i do BESIDES findind an IBM T-20 or 40 , lol ha ha ha ha Help..........Any ideas would be very helpfull I am using -r rw's thats the format my pc uses ! I just want to know what i could do to possibly speed things up a bit , thanks guys !
