    What movie are you doing?
    Since Shrink is no longer updated there quite a few it can't handle.
    Shutting down is one thing it will do if it can't handle the copy protection.

    Rip w/ DVD Fab HD Decrypter 1st then open those files in Shrink.

    Sometimes this happens when you have shrink setup to auto-burn the video files to disk using nero. Try unchecking the burn with nero option in shrink's preferences section and have the video files saved to your hard drive, if all goes well you can then manually burn the files to disk using nero.

    When you click backup, set shrink to save the video files as a hard disk folder to a location on you hard drive for manually burning to disk later.

    If shrink is still closing, then it could be a copy protection issue that shrink can't do anything about. In this case try ripping with any of these free apps which can handle newer movie releases as suggested above.

    [bold]DVDFab decrypter
    Ripit4me[/bold] http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/RipIt4Me-Download-44816.html

    DVDFab will allow you to rip the whole disk to your hard drive or just the main flick, you can then use shrink to open the files with and complete the process as you have been.

    Ripit4me is a complete all in one solution, it uses shrink, DVD decrypter and FixVTS in a 1-click mode to produce a backup.

    Cheers.

    same thing happened to me while backing up the lookout, it analyzes then starts to back up and then shuts down no error messages or anything, just disapears.....
