    Default Guide: How to get DVD Shrink to burn with ImgBurn


    How to get DVD Shrink to burn with ImgBurn


    There is a version of DVD Shrink that will do this automatically for you. You can read more about it in this thread.

    EDIT: Unfortunately, if you are using the PSL2 wizard, this guide will not work. As the wizard looks for dvddecrypter.exe and based on its file size. ImgBurn is not the same size as DVD Decrypter so thats why it won't work.

    For DVD Shrink to call ImgBurn up to burn, you must have DVD Decrypter installed. So if this is your first time using ImgBurn, you would also need to download and install DVD Decrypter.

    Now we all know that you can automate DVD Decrypter to come up to burn after DVD Shrink gets finished encoding. We are simply going to "fool" DVD Shrink into thinking "ImgBurn" is "DVD Decrypter".

    First thing to do is go to your "C: \Program Files" directory. Now locate the "ImgBurn" folder. (Screen Shot Below)



    After double clicking the "ImgBurn" folder, you should now see a file called "ImgBurn.exe". Right click on that file, and left click on "Copy".



    After copying "ImgBurn.exe", click the "Back" button to go back to your "C: \Program Files" directory, now locate the "DVD Decrypter" folder and double click it.

    After double clicking the "DVD Decrypter" folder, find the file "DVDDecrypter.exe" and right click on it. Then left click on "Rename". (Screen Shot Below



    Then type in the new name you want it to have. I typed "DVD Decrypter Real". (Screen Shot Below)



    Now, right click in a open white space of the window, and then left click on "Paste" to paste the "ImgBurn.exe" file we copied. (Screen Shot Below)



    Now right click the "ImgBurn.exe" file, and then left click on "Rename" and rename it "DVDDecrypter.exe". (Screen Shot Below)



    <hr>

    Since we had to rename "DVDDecrypter.exe" to "DVD Decrypter Real.exe", we now need to update the shortcut icon on your desktop. So that when you double click the DVD Decrypter icon, ImgBurn doesn't come up.

    Go to your desktop and find the DVD Decrypter shortcut. Right click on the icon then left click on "Properties". On the window that comes up, the first box is named "Target". You need to change the target to ""C:\Program Files\DVD Decrypter\"put here whatever you renamed DVD Decrypter as".exe" so that the actual DVD Decrypter program will start when you double click the DVD Decrypter icon. (I renamed DVD Decrypter.exe to DVD Decrypter Real.exe, so I put DVD Decrypter Real.exe at the end.) (Screen Shot Below)



    Ok, your done with that part!

    Since we modified the file names, DVD Shrink will now load up ImgBurn instead of DVD Decrypter. So in DVD Shrink, after you click the "Backup!" button, make sure you select "ISO Image File and burn with DVD Decrypter" as your backup target. (Even though it says "..burn with DVD Decrypter", its not. Its going to use ImgBurn.) (Screen Shot Below)

    Default Setting the burn speed in ImgBurn

    ImgBurn will use the last burn speed you selected by default. (or if it is the first time to use the program, "MAX" will be selected.)

    My advice is to manually open up "ImgBurn" the first time and burn something at the speed you want to (preferably 2X or 4X). Then exit the program.

    Then when it is called up by DVD Shrink from there on out, it will default to your last speed setting you used.
