    can someone run through the process of ripping a dvd with "dvd decrypter", then compressing it with "dvd shrink"...I ripped a movie with decrypter, then tried to open it in shrink, but i get an error message saying it can't find the file!...yet i point it to the exact .ifo file that was made from ripping with decrypter...(was i supposed to rip a .iso file instead?...Any help is greatly appreciated

    Why not just do these whole process on dvd shrink. It can decrypt and compress at the same time.

    use DVD decrypter to rip the dvd as an .iso file to your harddrive, then open it up in DVD shrink and make your compressions.

    There seems to be a problem sometimes using Shrink and decrypter together. Sometimes file size doubles, sometimes other problems. I never had a dvd Shrink couldn't decrypt by itself. Another choice is try the trial versions of Anydvd and Clonedvd. Anydvd runs in the background as the decrypter while clone copies, shrinks if necessary, and burns back. Jerry

    sorry i meant .ifo

    the exact file you need to open in DVD shrink is the video_ts.ifo, after ripping it from dvd decrypter.
