I am backing up a copy of one of my kids movies (they usually don’t last too long) and am having an issue with DVDShrink.
Now, I ripped with DVD Decrypter first, and I was shrinking to an ISO that I was going to burn with Decrypter as well. I have done this many times, and it usually works perfectly.
This time, DVDShrink says I ran out of memory. I have 8 GB set aside as virtual memory. Now, the memory usage jumped quickly from about 350MB of usage (commit charge) to about 1 GB, and then to around 1.5 GB after completing about 1/3 of the movie. After about 10 more minutes, it stopped… I didn’t get the total memory when the backup stopped.
Now, the question is: Is this a) a bug in Shrink, b) some new copy protection scheme designed to fool Shrink while encoding, c) Some limitation in Shrink to some maximum usable memory size, or something else entirely?
