    Try unticking the video preview box and see if it works ok then. I had the same problem so I downloaded the updates for my nVidia Gforce2 graphics card and this cured the problem.

    Hi x_dvd_x,

    Try to copy the DVD to your hard disk with DVD Decrypter (freeware). Then run Shrink and open the files from your hard disk. The rest of the backup procedure is the same.

    make sure you use dvd decrypter in the file mode,because shrink wont work on iso's.

    hello guys.......

    message for jim........latest shrink will now allow you to open/re-auther an iso image created with decrypter (i only found this out myself this morning)

    click on file tab (not open file but the file tab at very top) select "open disc image" then browse to the file.........all good stuff.

    another little gem from good old "Uncle ScubaPete"

    cheers guys

    have you had any success at all?

    Hi, I have used DVD SHRINK MANY TIMES. And today i have decide to backup Pirates of the carebean.
    I did it w/ one computer it burn the hold disk. when i put it on the dvd player it would not start.
    I did the same process w/ another computer. and this error came.
    DVD SHRINK ENCOUNTERED AND ERROR AND CANNONT CONTINUE.
    COPY PROTECTION ERROR
    THE REQUEST COULD NOT BE PERFORMED BECAUSE OF AN I/O DEVICE ERROR.
    I Have burned a dvd on th is computer w/ no problem. If anyone knows how to fix this please let me know
    THANKS

    hi zumogo,

    you have come accross one of the few disc that shrink cant read.

    easiest thing you could do is download DVD Decrypter (it's free)

    use this to create an image on your hd then use shrink in normal way on this image.
