    What exactly are you trying to say? Did you backup the disc or not? If you did, what program did you use? We can't help you if you're not specific about what you did.

    If DVD Shrink has a problem opening a disc you can rip it with DVD Decryptor in File mode and then use Shrink to open the files (Open Files button) or rip in ISO Read mode, mount the image to a virtual drive, and open the disc normally, selecting the virtual drive as your source.

    Well, what I have done in that situation is- dont click on Open Disk, click on Open Files and then select your DVD drive. That should do the trick.
    Thats if you want to Shrink the files more, if you just want to make a copy of the copy all you have to do is open up your DVD drive and copy the files to your HD, then burn them onto a new dvd.

    You cannot shrink ripped files with Shrink a second time. You would have to re-use the original disc. Why do you want to shrink the files even more anyway?

    There is no point shrinking files when they are already the correct size to make a disc copy lol. Just copy the DVD using Nero or DVD Decrypter. ISO read > ISO burn, Done!
