DVD Shrink Preferences
Target DVD Size: DVD-R is 4,489MB and DVD+R 4,483MB.
DVD-5 is 4.7GB which is really 4.37GB. 4464MB is the default for DVD-5
and gives just enough of a error size to be on the safe side.
Hide audio and subpictures streams of insignificant size.
Streams that are 1MB or less. Useful if you have 15 subtitles.
Automatically open VIDEO_TS subfolders.
When this option is "checked" and "Open Files" is
used, DVD Shrink will open any selected folder as long as it - or one
of its sub-folders - contains DVD-compliant files. When it is "unchecked",
you will have to make sure you select the folder containing the files.
Run analysis and backup in low priority mode (improves multitasking).
Always check this as it'll use 99% of your CPU when your not using it
for other tasks but when you do need it for a few seconds at a time (surfing
web, etc.) it will allow those programs to open relatively quickly. You
can always manually change this in Windows 2000/XP in the Task Manager
| Processes and right clicking on DVD Shrink and setting the priority.
Select audio preview mode suitable for your hardware configuration:
Stereo default and recommended will play 5.1 as stereo but not
5.1-channel surround sound your sound card must support
S/PDIF digital optical connection to receiver. DTS only
works with this option.
Select DirectX video renderer:
is the only requirement for DVD video playback and previewing. No other
mpeg-2 decoder is required unlike a few other free programs.
System default renderer if VMR-9 is selected but you have DirectX
7 or 8 it'll revert to this.
VMR-9 (DirectShow Video Mixing Renderer 9) DirectX 9
VMR-7 (DirectShow Video Mixing Renderer 7) default renderer
Overlay Mixer use for older video cards.
Macrovision protection prevents viewing DVD via TV-Out
on video card or copying DVD to VCR via standalone DVD player.
P-UOPs restricts user from accessing Title, Menu, FastForward,
etc. Forces one to watch FBI warnings, studio promos, etc.
Layer break playback is interrupted for a second while
it attempts to change to the next layer. A few dvd players have trouble
when a layer break is not removed.
Split VOB files into 1GB size chunks almost all DVDs
are produced this way. FAT32 has 4GB file limitation.
Logical remapping of enabled streams. disabled streams
won't be selectable by your standalone dvd player.
Audio language and coding type: by default have all select
or choose just one default language checked while all others are unchecked.
Subpicture language: same as option above but for Subtitles.
Disable all subpicture streams (except menus and forced streams).
Never have any selected except for (menu subtitles and forced streams)
are not deselectable as it'll create DVD playback problems when doing
1:1 copy in Full Disk mode.
All types includes DTS, AC3, LPCM
AC3 aka Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound
LPCM (Linear Pulse Code Modulation) typically on music,
RCE Protection Removal
Leave R.C.E. coding unmodified. it's your choice.
Regional Coding Enhancement (RCE) is an additional layer of protection found
a few DVD titles. Be sure to specify the region that your standalone DVD
player is in.

Most likely DVD itself is dirty or scratched. Try cleaning with water and
wipe in a inner to outter edge fashion (non-circular). Failing that try
ripping it with a dvdripper to your harddrive.
If you insert another DVD without closing out of DVD Shrink it may give
this 'secrets' error. Try closing DVD Shrink and re-opening it.
This prevents DVD Shrinking from attempting to backup without a source to
do it from.
Switch between four DirectX video modes VMR-9, VMR-7, Overlay Mixer, System
