Hey all. First off I wanted to say thanks for all the great info on the forum. It was very helpful in getting started on backing up all my DVD’s.
I decided to go the route of Ripit4me, DVD Decrypter, FixVTS, and DVD Shrink. All was well once I downloaded each of them and got everything configured. I backed up the Indiana Jones trilogy with no problems what so ever. So, I was bit by the back-up bug once I thought I had it all figured out.
Now, I moved on to my 4th and 5th movies. I tried the exact same process that I had used on the I.J. trilogy and went to “Walk the Line” and eventually tired of DVD Shrink crashing so moved on to “We were Soldiers” thinking that Walk the Line was the issue. Still no luck. DVD Shrink is still crashing at the same part of the process.
Heres what Im doing and where the crash is… I use Ripit4me, then DVD decrypter, then FixVTS, Then once I’m in DVD Shrink I go to re-author and select only the main movie to copy to DVD. I hit back-up and DVD Shrink thinks on it awhile and just closes. Now when I did the I.J. movies at that part of the process it brought up a menu with 5 or 6 tabs for how you want to back it up and so on. This menu isnt even coming up now before DVD Shrink closes? With the first three movies I selected save as ISO and burn with DVD decrypter. It worked great and I am very happy with the copies for the most part. Any insight as to whats going on?
If it helps at all I’m using a LiteOn DVD RW SHW-160P6S and Imation DVD +RW’s. If I forgot any helpful info let me know and I’ll post it.
-EDIT- I just wanted to add I did uninstall DVD Shrink and downloaded a fresh copy and tried again. It failed at the same point.
