Used DVD Decrypter (rip and burn) and DVD Shrink (transcoding) combo to back up Spiderman 2 and was 98% successful. Only thing that didn't work was subtitles. Did the above again and am now at DVD Shrink final page. Ticked all "English" Subpicture options which I DIDN'T do the first time so that should help (right?). However, two differnt DVD Shrink Edit/Preferences guides offer different thoughts on: [bold]PREFERENCES[/bold] "Hide audio and subpicture streams of insignificant size" [bold]PREVIEW[/bold] "Select DirectX video renderer" VMR-9 or System Default Renderer (note: used default and worked fine) [bold]STREAM SELECTIONS[/bold] "Audio language and coding type" English. AC3 or AC3 or LPCM "Disable all subpicture except menus and forced streams" [bold]FILE I/O[/bold] "Read 32KB blocks (default is 64kb).
