    I have a movie that has a total running time of 2hrs.20mins.
    I comes on a disc with 1/2 on one side and 1/2 on the other side.
    I have ripped both sides to my hard drive with DVD Shrink.
    The question: How do I load the two files into Shrink to re-size them so that I can then burn them with De-Crypter onto one disc?
    When I try, I can only load 'side A' or 'side B'. Is there a way to get both sides onto Shrink together for shrinking?
    If not, what are my options, other than having to burn each side to a separate disc?

    Hint: Use Re-Author

    I have tried every imaginable way to get the two files into DVD Shrink with no success.
    It will load one or the other, but not both at the same time.
    If there is a way to do this, could someone please enlighten me?

    Re-Author is the answer. From here you can either double click or drag the files from the DVD Browser to the left. Once both files are selected click on Backup!. Did you copy them to your hard drive as files or ISOs?

    bb - So if I follow that, I have to rip them with Decrypter, not Shrink?
    I have the files on the drive as I said in my original post, that I ripped with Shrink. Should I just delete them and start over with Decryptor or is there a way to use what I've already done?

    No you can use the files you ripped with Shrink... How are they on your HD? Files or Image?

    They are image. When I click on 'open disc image' they pop right up. I just don't know how to get them into the Shrink.

    This is so frustrating. When I do as I mentioned in the above post and they come up, if I click 'open' or 'select' I can get either A or B to go right in, but not both at the same time.

    OK do this...
    Open Shrink
    Click on File
    Select Open disk Image
    Find your first Image Click Open
    Now Click on Re-author
    Drag title 1 from right window to left window
    Now click on file again and select Open Disk Image
    Find your 2nd image and open it
    Click on Re-author
    Drag title 1 from right window to left window
    Now click on compression tab
    Select or unselect the audio you want
    Click Backup!!

    :)

    I've used this a few times with limited success -

    http://www.videohelp.com/forum/archive/t222659.html

    i used this procedure again, just last night for the Three Musketeers (1993). Watched the movie straight after but there was a noticable black screen for a couple of seconds where the join would have been. Tried recopying and trying to alter the start end end frames but no joy. I think 2nite i will and redo the movie using dvd2one
