    You can use DVD Decrypter in the ISO mode to write to your hard drive.Then you can open it with Shrink by clicking FILE>OPEN DISC IMAGE look for the ISO image created by Decrypter.This works great with movies never tried a game but you can shrink an ISO file.

    If you try his method and it works that could be really helpful. Others have prolly tried but I don't know if anyone has asked except me and you(I asked in the dvd ripping forum).

    Good luck!

    Yeah that doesnt work cause all dvd shrink does is reduce the quality of the movie not the iso.
    There is no way of compressing an iso which is a game.

    Crap, well there is a tutorial for Ripping DVD9 to two DVD5's or maybe it's one, I can't remember. However if it is two, how would you play it with swap discs or a mod chip?

    Oh yeah, sorry I have forgotten where the tut is. I have it in my fave's list at home though.

    It is a good guide if it works. But how on earth do you play a game that is on one dvd9 disc off of 2 discs, with just swap magic and flip/slide or a modchip?
