    I'm a newbie have both Shrink and DVD Decrypter installed. My success in copying movies has been limited to transferring the DVD or main movie to Shrink and then burning w/Decrypter. Every movie I have tried to decrypt w/Decrypter ends up with at least one unreadable file that I abort, and then Shrink is unable to read the decrypted DVD due to the missing file(s). Now, Shrink won't read Bowfinger (data error) and Decrypter can't read a certain file. Can someone please help me with this title and with how to work through the file errors I have with Decrpyter? Thanks much

    Perhaps you could run AnyDVD in the background when you are ripping with DVD Shrink, Then use DVD decrypter to burn.
    Or, do the same but use DVD Decrypter (latest version) to rip and burn.

    Thank you, Bardie. I will download AnyDVD and give it a try. What do I do, just open AnyDVD and then go through the normal Shrink to Decrypter process?

    Yes, open AnyDVD and you will see the icon down in your toolbar. Then you just use the other programs as usual.
    Lets know if you are OK.

    Bardie, the AnyDVD allowed me to rip the DVD to DVD Decrypter, but Shrink "couldn't find the _TS file" when I opened it. Conversely,AnyDVD also let me rip the DVD to Shrink, and when Decrpyter opened up the ISO file to burn to the DVD, it couldn't do it. Frustrated, I downloaded a trial of DVDFabExpress(?) and it was truly a simple, one button experience. Put the Original in one drive and the blank in the other, choose full disc or movie, and click. It can burn from computer files, so theoretically you could shrink the DVD and save it as ISO and burn it with Fab Express. I may actually purchase FabExpress.

    Thanks much for your help.
