DVDShrink Flash Guide 2.3 
[June 25, 2003] for total newbies. It attempts to show just how easy using DVDShrink really is without all the technical jargon.
Flash tutorial made with Wink thanksSatish

Many DVD Shrink errors are due to the dvd being dirty or scratched (one of the good reasons to backup your dvds). If you do experience an error, try cleaning it with water and drying it off by wiping with a lint-free cloth from center to edge (not in a circular motion). Or you can try ripping with DVDDecrypter. If you do, you must rip ALL FILES or to .iso.Main issues:
Layer break isn’t removed (doesn’t affect my dvdplayer just a slight pause)
–RCE protection isn’t removed if your doing a 1:1 Full-Disk copy. Doesn’t apply to Main Movie Only or Re-Author mode. See here for how to remove RCE protection.
Check out the excellent help included with dvdshrink

Notes about AutoShrink
DO NOT use funky characters for volume label [email protected]#$%^&(*).+|\. Only use _ underscore and abc123.
–If dvd is 1 layer (less than 4.37GB) then it’ll be ripped with dvddecrypter to an .iso and that .iso will be burned with dvddecrypter.
— If you don’t wish for it to burn do this check Skip 1:1 and you can use DVDShrink for a 1 layer dvd.
–If you wish to do 1:1 copies I suggest ripping manually first with dvddecrypter to remove RCE protection or verify that it doesn’t have RCE protection first …see here for RCE Protection Removal.
–If you forget to clean out d:\target_folder don’t worry as DVDShrink will prompt you to delete them.
–If you get ‘component comdlg32.ocx not registered error’ install install-ocx.exe
–If you run AutoShrink and the window doesn’t appear install this reg fix which will reset the position of the window to 0, 0 AShrinkFix.zip
