I ripped a DVD to the hard drive with CloneDVD2. I was able to encode with Shrink after I did and advanced analysis. It had first showed it was too big also. The backup plays fine. I have Recode 22.214.171.124.
I am not clear as to what your problem is. Could you try again?
I was able to encode the same file with Shrink. It first said it was too big as well but when I used advanced analysis is worked and I was able to encode. But I haven’t been able to figure out how to encode with Recode because it said the file is too big and I can’t find any “advanced analysis” on it to process again before trying to encode like with Shrink.
