    I've been trying to make a copy of Friday Night Lights, using DVD Shrink . During backup after just a few seconds though, I keep getting a message saying.......

    DVD Shrink encountered an error & cannot continue.
    Programming error. The handle is invalid.


    I've never seen this message before, does anyone know what it means ?? and how can I make a copy of this movie ?? using Shrink??

    I'm trying to copy .Friday Night Lights (widescreen)

    Thanks,
    dabig25

    Just download and install AnyDVD restart you computer as instructed by AnyDVD.. Then just run Shrink as normal.. AnyDVD runs in the background you wont even know its there except for the little fox face in the system tray next to your clock, but it is doing its job :)

    @dabig25,
    You say you use Decrypter and Shrink? So the best way to get this movie to work for you is to first rip the movie to your hard drive and then pick it up in Shrink.. Shrink will not handle some of the newer DVD's out there so you need to rip them to the hard drive with Decrypter first. Let us know how your comming along with this one will ya?

    I've already got it on my HD using DVD Decrypter.
    I'll try it later tonight using DVD Shrink.

    Let you know how it works....

    Hey thanks,

    I stored the movie on my HD using DVD Decrypter, then I re-authorized it on DVD Shrink. I just burned the movie itself without the menu and extras and it worked , thanks again.

    I found BBmayo's suggestion of using AnyDVD the best. However it is retail. I find it to be worth every cent I paid for it and more. With DVD Decrypter and AnyDVD along with my favorite transcoding, encoding and burner apps I've yet to run into a movie that can't be burned and I've done almost all the recent movies with the difficult encrytions. I leave Decrypter on default settings and go. AnyDVD can be used with most Windows programs that use a decrypter. When using Shrink AnyDVD will work with just the Shrink. However, I still like to rip with Decrypter and open the ripped files with Shrink. I leave AnyDVD running during the entire backup process.

    Friday Night Lights was a bit larger than most discs, so I did it with RB using DVD Decrypter ripped files. Then I burned with CopyToDVD3. Even with the Analysis and quality settings, I don't know that I would use Shrink to record the entire disc on this one.

    i tried to follow the advices. however when i chose, to backup the files now.i chose the "select backup target" as "iso image file... with decrypter". during the encoding it did weel. but during the burning, the decrypter said theres an error on "volume label" sometihing. it asked me if i want to abort or continue. i chose continue and it did. it ever asked me if i want to verify the files after bruning. the decrypter did. however, when the dvd was finished, i tried it and its EMPTY. I spend almost 3 hours now to burn this "The Punisher" dvd. please help. dont know what to do. ASAP... thank

    carven,
    Have you tried using the first guide at my website? the link is in my signature. Try that movie with that method, and you shouldnt have a problem unless something is wrong with that original..

    Sounds like it's just a set up problem. Following BBmayo's guide should solve the problem if you go at it step by step and do exactly what's stated in the directions.

    I just tried DVD Shrink 3.2 on "Friday Night Lights" and had the same error problem, whether I used AnyDVD or not. I finally tried DVD Shrink 3.1.7 and it worked fine with or without AnyDVD. I tried DVD Shrink 3.2 again and had the same problem. I tried this four times. Using DVD Shrink 3.2 has the error and DVD Shrink 3.1.7 does not. Try it out... it may work for you.

    Hmmm... Jetster backs it up without a problem. BBmayo can do it. I have no problems. Then someone is having problems and a different version seems to help. Makes one wonder where the problem is. I don't believe a program would selectively choose not to work for some individuals and then work for others. Someone either has a problem or the software is corrupted. Otherwise, explain how some people are transcoding and recording the DVD without a hitch.
