    When I try to use DVD Shrink on VMWare Fusion (as the Mac alternatives are just awful...) it came up with a "trying to use DMA....reconfigure as a SCSI device" error.

    Both IDE controllers were set as using DMA already and running in UDMA. When I reconfigured the drive in my .vmx file as a SCSI drive, DVD Shrink errors out with "Failed to read file "D:\" The drive cannot find the sector requested."

    I have read reports of people getting DVD Shrink to work on Fusion (and Parallels.)

    What am I doing wrong here? WinXP SP2 on a new Intel iMac (3.06)

    Should I try Parallels?

    I've found MacTheRipper 3.0 14m to be the best of the bunch, the instabilities I'd encountered were a few very early beta builds and the developer was super responsive to users who bought his software. It sounds like new development (3.1) is around the corner too, with new deep scan functionality, although the 3.0 non-betas have had structural copy protection and damaged sector list support so it's on par with often-updated Windows apps.

    The alternatives, which I've found to be not as capable at ripping although some of these have a lot of merit on their own: FairMount, HandBrake, DVD Ripper and DVD Copy, Fast DVD Copy.
