    I have been using shrink for some time now with no issue. this weekend I finally broke bown and installed service pack 2(Microsoft), and now I have to re-install shrink every time I want to use it. What do I have to do to fix this. Is it just me? The reason I did not install SP2 in the first place was it conflicted with sonic stage 2, but sony fixed that. Is there something with shrink too? Thanks for the help folks. Joe

    Microsoft definitely didn't get SP2 compatible with all systems. A lot of people have had trouble with it. I've heard the best luck with SP2 is from new installations or where people have reformatted and started fresh. Either way it boils down to a clean install. I have SP2 and Shrink is loaded on my system and there is no problem. In fact, I have a number of other recording programs and have no problems with the OS (XP Pro with SP2). I know some people who have had problems and went back to SP1, they've been using the SP2 blocker provided by Microsoft. Others who originally loaded it had to reformat their systems and do a clean OS installation. So, with SP2, I've seen everything from minor problems to major crashes.

    I'm not sure why you have to do that. I have SP2 as well and DVD Shrink doesn't give me any problems.
