Thanks for the responses. I will try playing disc tonight with AnyDVD running and post results. Would prefer to use AnyDVD as the ripper (rather than DVD Shrink) provided it plays off the hard drive and creates a file compliant with Shrink if I want to make backup. I agree with James that ripped file should be correct. I will also try ripping Deju Vu again tonight, just to see if same results obtained. BTW, I have AnyDVD HD but I assume that it uses same ripper for regular DVDs as AnyDVD?
