    Hi:

    While I was attempting to run ImgTool, I experienced the same problem as your subject. What I did after ImgTool had run(when I finally found the files) was to create a new folder and to move all of the files into it. Also, I believe that I know what caused the problem. For ImgTool, The name of Output File must have Video TS as partof the name. For example: G:\DVD-File\Video TS.

    My current problem is: Is there any way to save, say, one-half of a file if an error occurs before completion.

    I am becoming a bit frustrated. All of the steps in DVD Shrink take a few hours EACH. If an error occurs "midstream," I have begun anew--losing 2-3 hours of work. There must be some method to save whatever portion of a process has been done. . . .
    Alas!

    Good luck!

    WTF ?

    DVD Shrink should take no more than about 45 minutes (even in deep analysis mode)
    Start to finish of a DVD back up only takes about an hour or so , and that's burning at X2 speed.

    Hi:

    Please give me some idea of why all of the operations that I have tried over the last several days have taken AT LEAST TWO HOURS each. But I recall that my first run with DVD Decrypt completed(just that portion) in 90 minutes. All of the other steps such as DVD Shrink, ImgTool--on two or three occasions--all took over 4 hours--if they completed without error.(Please see my previous posting.)

    Well something defintely doesn't sound right as I have a fairly low spec PC :

    AMD900mhz
    256k SD Ram
    Pioneer 104 DVD-RW
    Lite-On 165H DVD-Rom

    DVD Decrypter usually takes around 8-15 minutes depending (one original DVD I own takes ages but that is because Decrypter looks for certain key to unencrypt & is a rare example)
    It will of course depend on what drive you're ripping/unencrypting with ... for instance I used to use DVD Burner but that old thing would only rip at X2.5 (at most)
    New DVD Rom I was able to rip upto four times faster than previously.

    I have a feeling that you have something wrong with the set up of your PC , cos none of the operations should be taking you anywhere near as long !!
