thick bitch alert!
when using shrink it occasionally will not let me back up because the file size is too big. all compression settings are on automatic. I thought I could get round this by not including subtitles and other features but no go.
Depends what you're backing up to.
If it's an ISO image & you're not using NTFS then I imagine you might get this error as fat32 is limited to 4gb. Solution here is just backing up to a HD folder.
More detail is really needed as to file sizes etc.
it's a straight burn of an original movie dvd disc, nothing fancy. I always use shrink to back it up on HD, then burn using nero
As this is not a problem I've experienced myself can we go through the steps you take & I'm not taking the p*** here, just want to establish at which point the error occurs.
At which point does the error occur?
hey Tim,sorry for not replying sooner, my first problem occurs when I hit 'compression settings'. the screen is totally blank, there is nothing to select/de.beats me
Katie.. Search the forum for DVDSHRINK, and download the most current version and reinstall. There have been problems in the past with people not having good versions of DVDSHRINK.
you know what? I'm just going to buy some dvd-9 and save the hassle!thanks everybody this site is pretty cool on helping stupid new people
I think harley could be right. A simple download from www.afterdawn.com might resolve this for you & save you some money & hassle with DL media.
By removing commentary tracks you can often save enough. If the original has both widescreen and fullscreen you can replace one or the other with a still image (stating that this version was removed).
