    no this is not normal

    What are your PC specs
    is your system generally slow

    DVD Shrink default settings should be fine

    well, sorry it took so long. my os was just recently reformatted. I had an older version of shrink and had no problem. I updated to the newest shrink and now it takes like 3 to 4 hours to shrink a movie.

    Using the "Quality Enhancements" as well as "Perform deep analysis" will add considerable amount of time to the backup process.

    It would help if you posted your system specs.

    NEPT,

    Adding to what Flip218 said -

    Your increased time is the product of much increased quality. No problem, simply un-check the Perform Deep Anaylsis and the Quality Enhancements and your old speed will be right back. As a matter of fact - when unchecked, your new DVD Shrink is exactly like the 3.1.7 -

    Speed on my friend, speed on -

    Pete

    Just make sure to stop back and let us know if you're happy with the increased speed after the un-checking -

    Cheers,
