    Hi Guys,

    Sorry did do a search but I am really struggling to backup a dvd. Shrink wont rip it as it says its
    protected so I used dvd decryptor to rip it.

    I have tried ripping it as both an ISO image and the other way but I end up with files too big to burn.

    I read on the advice here to then run these files through Shrink but everytime I do it encounters and error
    and wont complete the backup.

    Has anyone had this before or know a clever way out as its sucking my will to live!!!!!!

    Many thanks Paul

    'DVD Decrypter' or 'DVDFab Decrypter'?

    I used dvd decrypter to rip it. I also tried ripping it using the fab one but I only have the standard version so it wont do anything with it

    Generally it's Rip with DVDFab, cleanup using FixVTS then DVD Shrink to transcode.

    I think that maybe a bit beyond my capability!!!

    I have now tried the fixvts but it still doesn't work. I assume i am doing it right by gogin to the correct folder and hitting full dvd button!!!

    I can watch the ripped dvd on the laptop but shrink is falling over at the same point everytime.

    any more tips greatfully received, I'll delete all the files I Have and try again, but I am sruggling to understand whats going wrong

    What's the name of the movie and are you selecting 'Main Movie' only in DVDFab.

    I ripped it using dvd dycrypter, I ripped the complete disc.

    It s not a main stream movie its a freestyle mx dvd called crusty.

    I'll try ripping it again and see how that goes
