out of sheer curiosity, how is it more efficient?
because sometimes DVD SHRINK will have errors in reading the disc....using DECRYPTER to rip to your hard drive in FILE MODE can sometimes overcome read errors where DVD SHRINK may not be able to.....especially now with sony/columbia released dvd movies they have bogus vob files which will result in read errors or failure to rip at all.....there is a newer version of DVD DECRYPTER out....some have used VOB BLANKER to rip sony/columbia dvd movies because DVD SHRINK & DECRYPTER the version before 184.108.40.206 could not rip movies like RESIDENT EVIL APOCALYPSE & THE LITTLE BLACKBOOK.....although with the latest DECRYPTER 220.127.116.11 some were able to rip it.
i would suggest you check out www.videohelp.com to learn about backing up your dvd movies. it's a great site with many different guides to help you learn about dvd burning.....they have a world of knowledge at that website and join their forum if you want to post questions......
