    I tried to open a disc with shirink but when I went to do it it gave me this error "Dvd Shrink encountered an error and cannot continue, Failed to read file "d:\", the parameter is incorrect". If anyone know what this might be caused by, the help would be appretiated.
    P.S The first time I tried doing this it let me open the disc then i re-authored it and backed it up, but half way through the analysis it gave me the same error above. Ever since then it won't even let me open up the disc without this error.

    Hi there rookie45, welcome to aD,

    There are rare occasions that DVD Shrink has a bit "O" trouble with an encryption. When that happens I run DVD Decrypter in the "ISO" "Read" "Mode". When DVD Decrypter is finished, I snatch up the image by opening DVD Shrink, going to "File" then "Open Disc Image" and continue processing as usual.

    I like using the "ISO" approach as it takes everything exactly as it is on the "Mother disc" with, IMHO, less of a chance of corrupting or losing a little bitty, tiny, weenie, yellow polka-dot file-y to the "Aliens" that seem to come from nowhere and mess up my absolutely perfectly good day - (Ya know what I mean ?) :)

    See if that doesn't help make you day -

    Cheers,

    Pete
