    Play the movie that is giving you trouble a few seconds with your software player, then stop it and reopen Shrink and see if it works then. You sometimes have to play the movie a little to unlock the drive for Shrink to work. Be advised that there is a new type encryption just out the last couple of months that Shrink can't decrypt. You will then need DVD Decrypter or AnyDVD to decrypt these new movies. You need to download the newest version of either one to work. Good luck.

    Sorry, just re-read your post. You already have the movie on your HD. My mistake.
