If you want Anydvd to work the way you want, it would be in your best interest to (I suggest again) follow these instructions:
Anything else (including blaming Andvd) seems counterproductive to me.
This last bug in AnyDVD introduced a problem that caused Shrink (and NR2) to puke.
This issue appears to have been addressed. If not, again, I encourage you to visit the link above.
The author admits the change was introduced to make CD2 (one of their priced products) work better but it seems at the expense of Shrink and NR2. So now I have to take overt action to get Shrink and NR2 to work again.
I am not experiencing any issues with Shrink or the latest version of Nero Recode with Anydvd 188.8.131.52 (granted, I don’t own The Skeleton Key).
Don’t point the finger at Shrink.
Perhaps you would be kind enough to post a link to any previous post where I blamed Shrink for anything.
AnyDVD screwed things up.
To the best of my knowledge, the problem has been fixed. If not, please follow the instructions at http://club.cdfreaks.com/showpost.php?p=888927
For the sake of completeness, I am a registered CloneDVD2 user but still like Shrink’s interface, options and speed over CD2.
That’s pretty interesting considering it’s well established that Shrink is slower than CD2 at backing up DVDs.
Personally I like Shrink the best, then NR2 and lastly CD2. With AnyDVD in or out of the mix that’s six combinations and permutations.
Since CD2 only works with AnyDVD on, I leave AnyDVD enabled by default. Now I have to rethink that phylosophy.
Good luck getting NR2 to import protected DVD titles by itself.
Shrink is a great program. But it’s no longer being developed; it’s dead. I wouldn’t expect Shrink to be able to handle newer protected DVDs anyway, and I could hardly blame Slysoft for not supporting Shrink. Regardless, Slysoft still makes the effort.
