    The PSL trick is fine if you don't need to compress it with Shrink. If you do need to don't bother with the PSL because Shrink won't be able to read it once you do. Get the trial version of AnyDVD and run it in the background.

    na thats not right, used the psl file trick to allow ripping of entire dvd to disc. then used shrink from there. if you're saying there's another way/quicker way, thats fine, but this way definitely worked

    Not true. DVDS has no problem compressing this movie after the psl file has been imported to DVDD.

    AnyDVD may be the easier way,but Shrink and Decrypter can do the job!

    for layer cake, i originally tried shrink with anydvd, no good. then tried decryptor with anydvd. then found the psl info and used that with decryptor - WITHOUT anydvd this time, and it sailed thru without incident.

    madreek you've done it again, thought i just saw your exact same copy/paste on another thread. we know what arccos is already, we don't like it, and just really want to know how to get around it

    You can get around Arccos using Decrypter with the PSL Files or by purchasing AnyDVD which is updated regularly.If you find a disc that you can not do with Decrypter and a PSL File go to the Decrypter forums for help.There are only a small number of movies causing problems.

    yer i know, my point was that we know what arccos and other new protections are , we do know the numerous fixes to get around this and similar films, what we don't want is numerous copy/paste posts that almost advertise arccos
