After beginning with Ripitfor U ..DVD decryptor all seems to be going well. Then I go to DVD Shrink which analyses speedily, but after a few minutes into the encoding my system crashes. I've uninstalled all three, and re-installed them.I also am not on the web, turn off everything else, and I have lots of memory and hard drive space.I've used system restore but this hasn't helped either. Does this have anything to do with trying to record dual layer dvds? By the way DVDcloneIII is the pits.Don't waste your $ Is there anyone out there who has had a similar problem, or can offer any suggestions. I will br grateful for your assistance. You can e mail me direct firstname.lastname@example.org if that's more convenient. Thanks.
