DVD Shrink 3.2

Hi all
I have just started using DVD Shrink 3.2 copy and burn my DVD’s.
I have had no problems apart from the dvd
this is what happens…

The analysing at 49%

then a box comes saying…
DVD shrink encountered an error and connot continue
Failed to read file “D:”
Data error ( cyclic redudancy check)

As i’m very new to using this program i have no idea what it means or how to put it right.

HELP please

Thankyou in advance

Hi and welcome to cdfreaks.

(Cyclic Redundancy Check) or CRC Error

This can happen on various reasons:

1 ) dvd media is dirty - you can try to clean it
2 ) dvd media is damaged , you have to replace it
3 ) your drive is a region locked rpc2 drive, which does not allow reading of scrambled sectors from a different region and try to read a dvd from a different region.
You can try to find a rpc1 patched firmware at www.rpc1.com
4) your drive is an rpc2 drive that has not yet been assigned a region. try to assign one, or try to find a rpc1 patched firmware.

The link is there takes you too the firmware page.

To find the firmware you currently have use this :


If it’s not scratched or dirty I suggest returning it and get another one due to the manufacturer bad press (burn).

The same thing happened to me once, and in my case it was due to copy protection that Shrink couldn’t deal with.

Try with AnyDVD running in the background (available from www.slysoft.com as a 21 day fully functional trial).


Yes, Anydvd should work in this case.

:cool: :cool:

I also think it is only a copy protection here…

Thx for you help guys, i could not get any of the abouve to work. But found a 21 trail free of DVD fab and all be it slow it worked :slight_smile:

Thx again
