    I have a problem with dvd shrink.....after working well with several movies it now still analyzes the disc fine but when I go to burn it disappears for a few seconds and says like 100 hours remaining....I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling but it sill remembers the settings I had before.....can someone please guide me in the right direction here :bowdown:

    They have a great DVD Shrink forum there.

    Is this all happening with the same disc?

    I get random errors with DVD Shrink as well.

    So I use DVD Decryptor first, to decrypt/copy the files to my hard drive. Then I use DVD Shrink to shrink the files on the hard drive rather than directly from the disk.

    After using this method, I've only had problems with 1 disk (out of hundreds).

    Some discs may have a certain copy protection that messes up DVD shrink. You can find out by searching forums.afterdawn.com for the movie name.

    Also, look for a program called AnyDVD. It's a great program.

    Scratched and damaged discs can also mess up DVD Shrink.

    one thing you must remember is that in order to keep things running smoothly you must restart your computer after every couple of burns
