    im guessing it saved a copy of the movie on your hard drive.have a look through dvd shrink (menus/settings) and see if you got a file where it saves the movie.when img burn is running it might say burning file from c:\(file name).

    Push the 'Windows' key and the 'f' key and do a search for *.vob

    Didn't I mention that?
    "Windows has a search function."

    You don't need to use a wild card *. With DOS you did.

    Showing your age Attar.. Hahahahaha

    Did you do a search of your hard drive?
    It doesn't make a lick of sense unless the files are hidden.
    Do you know how to show hidden files?

    Still, I have yet to see .vob files being hidden

    The files are on the hard drive somewhere. You just have to find them.

    Is this some Hammerhead exercise in futility?

    Assuming you are not using the boot drive to store the files, just wipe the damn drive and Download DVDFab decrypter free.

    @hummer68

    ImgBurn doesn't create temporary files, so that's not the problem.
    Try searching for .iso files.

    My son in-law is Scottish. He owns a restaurant along with his sister and her husband.
    There's just certain things I will not eat.
    When food stairs back at you, sometimes you just have to say no thanks.

    I think you know what I mean.
