DVD Shrink/Rip Programs

Anyone know a good DVD Shrink and Rip-to-harddrive programs compatible with Windows 7? I had DVD Shrink 3.2 when I had Vista and installed it again when I installed 7 and it crashed my comp...had to reinstall 7. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I have used this guide Rip any DVDs with RipIt4Me + DVD Shrink + ImgBurn full guide for newbies - AfterDawn: Forums
It uses RipIt4Me (DVD Decrypter + FixVTS) + DVD Shrink + ImgBurn
The link for RipIt4Me does not work had to search google fot it

If you dont want the output to VOB, the best two options are

HandBrake

virtualdub

Those two supports h264 ... so you get good quality of rip in a lesser space .

Or another good one

The Official ImgBurn Website

This rips to an .iso and completely clones the disk.

Use this to then read those images

SlySoft Virtual CloneDrive

These are perfect for when you are backing or what not.


Oh and they are completely free

I use the free version of DVDFab to rip my DVD's and Handbrake to encode them to MKV (x264 + AC3/DTS passthru).

I use DVD Shrink on Windows 7, never had any trouble with it since using it in Compatibility mode (Windows XP SP3).

Right click on the DVD Shrink program icon > Properties > Compatibility > Compatibility mode > Windows XP SP3.

The above method works for me but can't say for definite it'll work for you, try at your own risk.

I'm running DVD Shrink on Windows 7 64-bit and having no problems at all. I only use it to shrink the file. Typically use DVD Fab Decrypter to actually rip the file first.

I also use DVDshrink on win7 x64 and have experienced no issues at all. I didnt need to use any compatibility mode during installation or when i run the program.

+1. Using it on W7 32 bit.

A DVD9 to DVD5 shrinker with better quality is DVD Rebuilder. There's a free and a Pro version. The Pro version allows you to run a copy of the video encoder per core. For example HC Encoder. Another nice feature is .avs conversion of letterbox 4:3 dvd to 16x9. I've started using it to convert a lot of dvds I bought in the 90s before 16x9 anamorphic was the norm(many Hong Kong films were letterboxed.) Using HC "normal" profile on my quad I can process a 90 minute movie in about 35 minutes. If you use HC "best" profile figure on doubling the time for a bit better quality.
