    I did all 3 of those movies using dvd shrink and nero.
    You might try playing the movie for a few in your dvd player software ie.windvd, powerdvd, tray player, etc.
    Pause it, dont close it, and try ripping.
    If this doesnt work, you might try ripping with dvd decrypter in file mode, and open up the files in dvd shrink using the open file option.
    good luck

    I also did these 3 movies wth DVD Shrink, well i rencoded with Shrink.

    I personally always rip with DVD Decrypter first as it rips better then Shrink.

    I only use dvd decrypter, if shrink wont do the job, which in most cases, it does.

    I used to use DVD Shrink to rip at first but found that DVD decrypter was better and had more options to play around with so i just stuck with that method.

    Also sometimes i like to rip and then rencode later so using DVD Decypter is a better option for this.

    DVD Decrypter is just a ripper it will rip a disc of any size but you wont be able to just copy the files onto a DVD-R or DVD+R

    Unless of course you have a dual layer burner and can afford the blank media.

    not true,dvd decrypter will rip and burn in the iso mode just click mode/iso read/iso write.
    dvd decrypter can do this when the disc is under 4.36 gb
    I really dont see the point in using dvd decrypter when your just gonna have to use shrink anyway(for movies over 4.36 gb)

    Oh yeah LOL yes it can create ISO files.

    I should have said it is not a rencoder, rare to come across discs under 4.36GB these days so aint used that option for ages LOL.

    So i should have said DVD Decrypter can rip discs of any size but if over 4.35GB they will need to be rencoded to fit on a DVD-/+R, unless of course you choose the movie only option and this is below 4.36GB.

    Been a bit busy posting today trying to talk to peeps at work and answer some queries sometimes my brain turns to jelly LOL.

    I stand corrected big slap LOL

    As i said the only reason i use DVD Decrypter is because if i have ever had a problem with DVD Shrink then DVD Decrypter will resolve the problem and i just prefer it as a ripper.
