    Like gazza1233, your friends pc may have programs like dvd43 or anydvd running in the background .

    These are background programs that help dvd shrink pull off the encryptions. I believe dvd43 is not updated as often at anydvd. Especially the newer encryptions like the Grudge,shrink alone couldn't rip it. You can get a free 21 day trial of anydvd by slysoft and see if you can rip those dvd's.

    Another free program and a more powerful ripper is dvd decrypter.Dvd decrypter was just updated at the first of the year for those newer encryptions. Check out these great guides: http://home.comcast.net/~bbmayo/index.html

    It's always handy to have several different ripping programs in case you run into encryption problems.
