Hi .. firstly let me apologise if this has been covered before - although looking through the forums I could find no answer to my problem. I have recently bought a DVD Writer (LiteOn 851s). So far I have used the writer to make backups of several films - including DVD 9's. I am using the following software .. DVD Decrypter 18.104.22.168 which I use for ripping and burning. DVD Shrink 22.214.171.124 which I use for compressing DVD 9's to a single disc. My problem is regarding the R2 PAL version of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. Although DVD Decrypter seems to successfully rip the files (to make a large .iso file as I have been doing with all the other films), when I try to open the image file in DVD Shrink, i get the message:- DVD Shrink cannot continue Failed to read file cVD_VIDEO.ISO I have also tried using DVD Shrink to get the files straight from the disc - and this too has proved unsuccessful. If anyone could help me to open the file using DVD Shrink, or inform me of any other software (pref. free) that I can use to make a backup I would be very grateful. Thanks a lot! PS - I have a limited understanding of how these things work, but I would not class myself as a techno wizard - so please be language / technical expertise friendly in any replies. Thanks again in advance!
