    Are you using Shrink all by itself?

    If so give this a try
    Install RipIt4Me
    Backup using RipIt4Me

    Shrink is old and outdated, but still usefull when using RipIt4Me in conjunction with DVD Decrypter.

    Where did the file come from [DVD Decrypter] or straight from the disc.

    Thankyou for ur response now I have Rip4me and DVD Dycrypter have tried to run the file movie I downloaded from Torrent spy through both and when I attempt to open the file and click on the folder containing the movie nothing happens and there is a blank space in the opened file box could this be an extension problem, this is what the folder file destination looks like Pan's.Labyrinth[2006]DvDrip[Eng.Sub]-aXXo

    RipIt4Me (including DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink) doesn't do AVI files or downloaded movies/files (AVI, DivX, XvID, etc.) That being said, you'll need to use either Nero Vision or ConvertXtoDVD to transcode your files into DVD (i.e. VOB, BUP and IFO files).

    What is the file extension? at the end of the file there should be .xxx at the end of the file what are the 3 letters there?

    Make sure you go to "Tools" , "Folder Options" and un-check the below box

    Thankyou again for all the feedback..however Im not sure how to proceed, by unchecking my Hide extensions for known files will that allow Shrink or Ripit4me to open the file or do I need to convert the movie using convertXtodvd before shrink or Decrypter can do their thing?? thnks in advnce for all the help and ur patience...:)

    no by doing that we will know what type of file you really have so we can go from there. What is the extension of your file?
