    The movies are most likely some form of AVI. Since DVD Shrink will only recognize VOB/IFO/BUP format you'll need to convert the files to that format in order for Shrink to work with them.

    You can use GSopt to determine what format the files are and if you have the correct codecs to work with it:

    Then you'll need to use a transcoding tool such as TMPGEnc to perform the conversion to MP2. Here's a link to the basic process:

    After that you'll need to convert the files to the proper DVD format using TMPGEnc DVD Author. Here's a link to an outstanding guide:

    Have fun :)
