PAL dvd with 2 languages, can't get english, now can't copy at all

hi folks-

i’ve got a PAL dvd with both german and english language narration.

my WIN 7 won’t use dvd shrink.
but, the dvd is only 2 gigs.

i used anydvd and copied it to my desktop. then, using VLS (VLC?) which comes up by default, i couldn’t find the english track. i also couldn’t play the whole video on my desktop.

can you help?
