    Using DVDShrink get all your files together and compress them as you want them, then when you click backup there should be an option there that will let you just backup to your harddrive without making any burns

    Good luck

    You need to change the target destination in DVD Shrink to "create an ISO". This way you can still mount it w/ Daemon Tools.

    When you click "backup!" you'll see this window. Select ISO Image File

    I'd try to clear up some space on your hard drive. Computers start acting funny when the hard drive gets close to full sometimes.

    Also if you can invest the money, maybe some more RAM. That will improve your computer's performance in everything you do, and will probably clear up this problem.

    I'd still like to know what movie this is...
