DVD Shrink Errors when Reauthor

vbimport

#1

I’ve been using DVDShrink w/ImgBurn backing up my movies for a little while, just recently I get an error wen I try to rearthuor any movie.

I insert a disc, AnyDVD will come on, then with DVDShrink I can open the disc and it will analyize and finish. I click the re-author button and get an error msg. (see attached)

I’m guessing it’s a software issue from one of my other programs but I am not software literiate and maybe someone can read the error log and help me.

My other programs in the arsenal are: AnyDVD, Clone DVD, FixTvs, DVDFab5and Nero

This is the error:

Do you have latest version of AnyDVD installed? Yesterday a new version was released :slight_smile:

Can you try again to rip first the DVD on hard disk and then load ripped data from HDD in DVD Shrink?

Happy New Year

Yes have the newest AnyDVD. Used a file that DVDFab5 ripped on to the HDD. Clicked on Open Files in DVDShrink, found it and loaded it up onto shrink, clicked re-arthur and got the same error.

I really like using DVD Shrink, almost one-click and very easy to use.


#4

Have you tried uninstalling DVDShrink, cleaning out the registry entries for it, then re-installing it?


#5

Yep

Tried that - done that

I’ve had an error on the HD long time ago and had to re-intall XP and left some programs off as well as not to download all the fixes to Windows XP and Shrink worked fine, but as time went on and the downloads from MS were “downloaded” got the same problem. :doh:


#6

Your screen shot shows dvdshrink 3.2-n:\ try getting a different copy to use. The one you have could be corrupt.


#7

Here is the download at cdfreaks if you want to try it: http://www.cdfreaks.com/software/Copy-DVD-Movie-Software/DVDshrink/DVDShrink.html

Hmm, don’t know what to tell you about XP updates…my copy of XP is on SP3 with all critical updates installed…no problems with anything.


#8

Either use dvdshrink OR anydvd to create an ISO first.

Kerry 56- the link does not work for me.

Troy512- I did have those problems with the listed movies in that link, and had to use DVDFab, then CloneDVD to backup those movies.

I have uninstalled DVDShrink w/IMG Burn, defraged the HD, ran CCleaner, RegScrub powered down and restarted, then reinstalled DVDShrink w/IMG Burn and it still error on the re-author.

Did you install something just before shrink started to give problems? Maybe removing that software you’ll solve.

I wonder if a fresh install of Windows will solve everything. Then you can install a software at time until you find the culprit. It is a time consuming operation, but it is the only way to find the culprit for sure.

Maybe a windows update installed something that causes conflicts with DVD Shrink. Did you check the event viewer to see if there is some useful information?


#13

I’ve done that too. Had a problem with the PS and gave false HD poblems on the boot drive. Fresh install then loaded up DVDShrink and it worked, until one day after a MSN upgrade to XP made it error out again. I just wish I knew which program it is so I wouldn’t have to reinstall XP PITA.


#15

I’m afraid that if you will not find the real culprit, the only way to solve is a fresh installation, and I completely agree: it is a PITA :frowning:

I wonder if you can solve the issue trying to use DVD Shrink in “portable” way. Try to copy all files in the installation directory on an USB pendrive, uninstall the software from your computer, and then run the software from the pendrive. Some software are able to run in this way, and it is certainly a faster test compared to a fresh install of Windows :slight_smile:

if when you click on the more info tab and Dr.Watson Debugger pops up
then errors out,the problem is Internet Explorer 8
there is a known issue with IE8 somehow changing a file in
DVD SHRINK causing it to error out
so… uninstall IE8 and go back to IE7 and it will work again

You are de man :clap::clap:
