    Your question is a little bit confusing.No way to move to what hdd ? if your talking the player then you have the option of transferring the ripped video to the players hdd,either by thumb drive & copy option or ftp if it supports it.

    The other option is convert the video to mp4,mkv or whatever file type your player supports including iso

    A little more info & better explained would help get this sorted

    Now I'm confused.
    If you used DVD Shrink in 'Re-author' mode to select the main title and saved it as an iso image and the media player can handle image files there shouldn't be a problem.

    If you select the dvd & let shrink scan,then now you need to select the re-author button.

    Once re-author selected,you will see a number of titles,the largest will be the movie & is usually title 1 but not always & is in the first column down.the titles in the 2nd column down are usually extras

    Right click & use add function,it will now appear in the left column.

    Select the compression tab and deselect subs & audio you don't need.

    In the left column right click on the title so you can trim the front & end credits if you want to get rid of the crap,it also reduces the size of the movie & will allow less compression if you have the intention of squashing the file size,which will help quality (since your placing this onto a hdd select no compression under the compression tab).

    You'll notice the left column has a preview window,this allows playing of the movie you've selected it can also be used to fine tune any cutting,so as not to display any writing from the credits.It will also help determine what file is what


    ok your all done so select backup option & then select place to rip dvd to.At this point you have other tabs to allow region free
    quality = select both if not grayed out this will help quality when using compression,the other two tabs are self explanatory



    once movie is ripped you can re-name the video_ts folder to movie name & play with the player,if it doesn't re-name it video_ts then place it in a folder named after the video then try again.

    transfer the whole folder of the movie you just ripped then select play,the player should automatically select the ifo file & will play the titles in order (you could manually select the ifo if required) as there may be more than one vob (vobs are the movie & you will need all of them as they are numbered)

    It would most probably pay to convert the ripped dvd's to either iso format (shrink should be able to do that or use dvdfab 8 or imgburn,for best quality select no compression or if using compression no less than 80%) or something like an mkv or mp4 & store them for later viewing use vidcoder to convert them

    DVDShrink has the following unbearable limitations that force me to find a DVDShrink alternative software.
    – Only available on Windows platform
    – Get errors when use to shrink many recently released DVD movies
    – Only supports to strip off Region code, UOP and partial CSS/Macrovision from DVD disc, not work with many other DVD copy protection types such as RCE, Key2Audio, ArccOS, FluxDVD, etc.
    – Offer very limited output format options
    – Stop outdated for over 10 years, it has poor compatibility with the new Windows 10 platform such as Windows 10.
