Can you use DVD Shrink with episode dvds?
I did one and it doesnt play.
I just ripped the Sopranos and Star Trek Deep Space Nine as well as Voyager with DVD Shrink/Decrypter. No problems here.
I simply use Full disc and minus some of the audio, ie everything except for ac-5. I have the lastest Shrink & Decrypter, maybe that could be a problem.
You can however you must realize that episode disks require much more compression because they usually have more data on them so a lot of DVD players wont play the compressed stuff to good, and this is where the good media really comes into play also.. If you want the best picture quality I would recommend that you split the episodes up to 2 or 3 per disk and you should have no problems.
No problem, copyed all fo CSI Vegas..season 1 to 4. Did have a problem with Sapranos disc 2..forgot how I got it to work.
I have been using cheap cheap disks before. My first attempt with an episode disk I used a brand new Sony dvd. It doesn't play on my Tosiba DVD player but plays on other friends dvd players. I even borrowed another Sony that was burnt and it played on my Toshiba DVD player. That person used DVDXCOPY. I am wondering if it is a problem with Shrink. I will check to see it is updated version.
For those disks that require a lot of compression I recommend you use AnyDVD & DVDCopy3.. DDC3 will produce far superior quality compared to Shrink or Xcopy for that matter.. You can download and use the trial version for both of those programs to see how good they work for you..
I am using AnyDVD and this time I used DVD Fab.
Disk worked. I then burnt another copy and my DVD player won't play that copy. Strange I have no idea why it works and why it doesn't.
I already gave you the solution...
