    I'm trying to use Shrink to rip a DVD. The DVD is located on a networked PC's dvd drive. I've trying mapping the drive but Shrink doesn't recognise it as a valid drive. Any ideas? :lease:

    I didn't really want to do that. It's my lad's pc and I was hoping to use it for ripping DVD's without kicking him off it.

    AFAIK you can't, it needs to be able to talk to the DVD drive as a real drive to be able to break the CSS encryption, this low-level access isn't possible using a network share.

    Thanks, I was wondering if that was the case.
