    I'm sorry to say this but that can't be possible. Shrink on it's own can only rip and compress the files. It needs another program to be able to burn. Decrypter can rip and burn(ISO's only) but cannot compress. Plus it's a good idea to keep decrypter around for those stubborn movies that shrink has problems with. This is rare but does happen.

    Zippyd is correct, Shrink only encodes and compresses - it does not burn. It can be used in conjunction with DVD Decrypter and use Decrypter's burning capability to burn ISO files.

    Alternatively DVD Shrink can be used in conjunction with Nero to burn VTS type files.

    DVD Shrink and Nero are a good ripping/compressing/burning combination.

    Working trail versions of Nero can be downloaded from the Nero site.

    DVD Decrypter is not essential for ripping/compressing DVD's but is a useful backup for DVD's that Shrink may have problems with or for ISO reading and burning.

    Read some of the guides available from this site for more detailed information.

    First law of using DVD Shrink:

    Don't use Decrypter before using Shrink, since Shrink uses it's own version of Decrypter and you are wasting precious time in using two tools when only one is necessary.
