yes michigan you are tired.... you gave him the same link twice.
it's a guide for version 3.1 but the differences are negligible. if you want the actual software you can find it here at AD in the software section
evenstar, here is a quickie guide I wrote for shrink beginners that might help. Download DVDShrink 3.2, you will need a burning app like Nero or decrypter. Decrypter is free and can be found here in AD.
2-click on open disc
3-wait for shrink to analyze(about a minute) and the new screen will come up
4-here you can go into extras by cilicking on the + mark.
5-You can change compression on each or substitue still image for each until done. Each can be previewed in the preview window below.
5a- you can raise compresssion or substitute a still image on all extras at once before you hit the + mark if so desired. By using the still image you maintain a working menu.
6-if you only want the movie and don't care about a menu, hit re-author, when screen comes up click and drag anything from the right side to the left side that you want to keep and then you will go to set up the analyze and burn features.
7-To set up burn w/nero click on edit > preferences > fileI/O > enable burn with nero
9-under target device choose either file to your HD, your burner, or iso image file and burn with decrypter
10-choose your temporary folder
11- under quality settings(I use this if it's over 10% compression,you must make your own choices here, this will take much longer, but is worth every minute!)check deep analysis and adaptive error compensation. It has been said that max smoothness seems to deliver the best results.
12-hit OK and come back to a finished DVD, leave your PC alone, do not do anything on it while performing backup. No multitasking!
Hope this helps.
gee michigan, now evenstar is gonna think i'm crazy cuz there's only one link in there. and big o... when i get better at typing i'll go into more detail like you did.
