Totally amazed right now. DVD Shrink 3.2 will rip all New Releases of Disney DVDs. I just ripped The Lion King DVD that comes with the Diamond Edition.

Seeing that DVD shrink 3.2 is no longer supported I've now recently discovered that new encrypted cells are not affected using DVD Shrink regardless if the encrypted cells are on Blu-Ray (must convert to dvd before using dvd shrink 3.2)

@ Stackner: What's with the 1's across the board? Value for money is a 1??? It's f'n FREE! Though it is no longer updated it still will rip many dvds, especially older ones and there still is no better free compressor of dvds. This is still the software that other rippers are judged by. It is very customizable (if that's a word ;>)) and you can still do things with it that other newer software can not do. Give it some love dude.

A DVDShrink Software is an application that allows a user to shrink the original DVD and make copies and backups. One good thing about the software is, it is easily available only and thatís also for free.

I almost Sh*t my pants no need for DVD Fab anymore. I was able to copy Avatar and Twilight New Moon just only using DVD shrink 3.2. I found from a blog that Twilight New Moon has Rovi (Macrovision) Rip Guard on it. Perhaps the industry is not applying all protections any more. These two DVD's I have are made in Canada so I don't know if is by country instead of region perhaps this might be due to the fair copyright protest that has been happening in Canada for the past 3 years, but however DVD shrink 3.2 will copy new DVD releases in Canada.

Yep, DVD Shrink is very well designed and can still be used to rip 90%+ of movies. It's also very useful as a reauthor tool. I don't compress movies anymore, but when I used DVD Shrink for that purpose, I was happy with the result. It's also fairly easy to learn how to use.

There are a few quirks. For example I always leave it in DVD-9 mode, because there is a minor bug in DVD-5 mode where the total file size may not be calculated correctly. I know the maximum that can be burnt to a single layer DVD is 4464 MB and edit things accordingly, if I'm intending to burn to a single layer disc.

It helps to use RipIt4Me in 1-click mode as a predecessor just to see if the movie is protected. If not protected, DVD Shrink works great. If protected, use DVDFab first.

I also run FixVTS on the ripped product before burning, or after using DVDFab and before loading into DVD Shrink, to make sure there are no pointer errors. This also gets rid of unreferenced cells. Then I use ImgBurn to burn to disc.

There are a few rare cases where only DVD Decypter can rip a movie (when both DVDFab and DVD Shrink fail). DVD Decrypter may also be the only way to rip or recover damaged discs. Otherwise the above procedure works like a charm! :)

Re AnyDVD or DVDFab Passkey: Who needs them? I don't. Of course that's an alternate method to try in case the usual methods fail, but I've never had to use it.

Shrink is still the cat's meow, works great, but no longer updated by the author (he now works for Nero); the built in decrypter is not supporting some of the later movies. If you decrypte it first with DVDDecrypter (no longer supported) or DVDFabdecrypter (free) or maybe AnyDVD working in the background you will find Shrink is still a very nice program and a keeper.

Used it to select part of a DVD folder and to combine several titles into one DVD. Works perfectly for that.

This tool is still finction after upgrading to Vista. I just installed the 3.2.0.15 version + IMGBurn support.

My test:

Shrink a self made 7.5 GB ISO file, generate ISO file and burn it automatically with IMGBurn 2.2.0.0.

I also ripped and shrink another self made DVD and it is working just fine.

For using DVD Shrink with IMGBurn just follow the link.

Re: crashing

I had this probelm after I upgraded to a 3.0Ghz processor from a 2.5Ghz processor. Could reliably work around it by underclocking my processor back to 2.5Ghz, but processing was slow.

Recently replaced by system memory and presto, no more crashing when using processor at full speed. I had one old memory stick that was reporting wierd speed in system resource utilities. My guess is either a bad stick or mismatched sticks. I had three that I removed and replaced with 2 larger and identical sticks.

Hope this helps - the crashing problem bugged the hell out of me for the many months I had it.

I had the same problem using Nero6.6.14 and the answer from Nero as follows:
Do you use DVD Shrink?
Don't let DVD Shrink burn the DVD. Instead copy it to your harddisk and import it from there to Nero

Anyone else having a problem with Shrink v3.2 crashing when it gets to the burn phase? I started having the problem after upgrading Nero to the latest version (v6.4 ?). Will probably end up rolling back to v6.2.
