    I've used DVD Shrink for years and years on my XP and then Windows 7 machines, and it simply worked perfectly whenever I happened to need it. Now I'm on Windows 10 though, and it seems that this faithful and reliable old workhorse has finally met its end.

    Any suggestions for a quick, easy and free solution which does the same job? I have plenty of more advanced tools which will rip DVD/BluRay content and convert to MKV files for my home NAS-based system. However what I really need at the moment is something that will allow me to do quick and simple re-authoring of my aging mother's DVD collection so she can watch her films just by putting a disc into her basic player (i.e. reauthor them to remove all the crap adverts, company messages, menus, extras, options, and just make the film itself auto-play when you insert the disc). Just want to keep the main film, its chapter marks, and the regular English soundtrack.

    DVD Shrink was perfect for doing this semi-automatically (and shrinking for single-layer DVD if needed) so it's really annoying that it has finally bitten the dust under Windows 10. What are other people using for this sort of task these days?

    DVDShrink still works for me in Windows 10, though I almost forgot that I still had it installed. Just tested it to make certain.

    If changing compatibility mode doesn't work for you, have you tried the free version of DVDRebuilder? It will not be as fast, but should give better quality results.

    Ah, I'll check again then. A quick Google search gave me the impression that DVD Shrink could not be made to work with Win10, so I stopped trying. I had already thought of trying a virtual machine (I have a Win 7 64-bit test system running in VirtualBox) but that failed to load the DVD contents into DVD Shrink, it just got stuck trying to scan.

    I'll go back and try some more though if other people have it working! Thanks all.

    Nope, still not working (won't even start when I try to run it). Tried various compatibility modes, inc XP-SP3 and 7. Windows error logs look like this, in case anyone has any ideas?

    Latest update:

    Still can't get DVD Shrink to load at all in Win 10, so I went back to my VirtualBox Win7 system (as at least that allowed the interface to load). I found that by setting ATAPI mode to passthrough in the storage device emulation settings, it now analyses discs fine. A lot slower than usual, but as it's not exactly something I'll be using every day any more, I think it'll do for now.

    Uninstall DVDShrink. Start regedit. Go to HKey_Current User-->Software-->DVDShrink and right click on DVDShrink so that you can delete it. Close regedit without touching anything else. Reboot.

    Reinstall DVDShrink using the version found at the direct link here: https://www.videohelp.com/software/DVD-Shrink

    Edit: Too late in my reply I see. At least you got something working.

    I had already tried an uninstall and clean re-install of DVD Shrink (I was already using the final valid 2004 version 3.2.0.15, but I did a file verify just in case). There were no orphaned registry entries left behind after the uninstall. Problem is still the same after re-installing though. The program has simply performed perfectly for so long (more than 10 years!), and while the virtual machine route kinda works, it's really slow and clunky.

    I'll keep trying to find an answer anyway, and watch here in case anyone else has any thoughts. Thanks all.

  11. You may get DVDShrink to work if you add the DVDShrink.exe to the windows DEP exception list. I am not using windows 10 so I can not test if this fixes your problem.

  12. Yes, it solved the problem.
    DVDShrink did not start anymore on my Windows 10, with the Event Log registering a trace such as:

    Nom de l’application défaillante DVD Shrink 3.2.exe, version : 3.2.0.15, horodatage : 0x4103f8b5
    Nom du module défaillant : unknown, version : 0.0.0.0, horodatage : 0x00000000
    Code d’exception : 0xc0000005

    and:
    Récipient d’erreurs -1118260693, type 5
    Nom d’événement*: BEX
    Réponse*: Non disponible
    ID de CAB : 0

    After having disabled DEP for the DVDShrink Exe, it worked again.

  13. To the OP, did you install DVD Shrink as an admin? i.e. right-click on the installing .exe file and choosing to 'Run as Administrator' (This is NOT the same as installing whilst logged into Windows as an administrator.) You might also want to set the installation directory to something like 'C:\DVDShrink' (if it lets you) rather than the more usual '\Program Files' or '\Program Files (x86)'. It's amazing how often you can get older programs to run in the newer versions of Windows like this.

  14. I don't remember, I installed it a long time ago.
    It worked until a relatively recent date, I think some windows update caused it not to run anymore.
    Quote Quote  
  15. OK. What about the times you've recently tried to reinstall? I only ask as there are people who claim to be using DVD Shrink on Windows 10, so it doesn't seem to be an absolute . . . ?
    Quote Quote  
  16. I've just installed dvd shrink out of curiosity on win 10 64 bit pro & functioning normally,may I suggest you uninstall the program using Revo uninstall & use advanced mode to remove left over files on scan mode(you can download a trial)reboot your system & apply a fresh install of said program,it may then run okay it's worth a try!
