DVD Shrink is a free DVD to USB converter for Microsoft Windows. That said, Mac users are out of luck. Featuring ease of use, it allows you to compress and copy DVD to USB drive in two main modes, Reauthor and full disc. But it can't cope with new DVD copy protections owing to lack of update.

This is the real case from users - "If I choose a section of frames that totals something random like 15:00, and I play the VTS_01_1 file that returns to me, the time counter reads anything but 15:00. It reads 3:22 or 12:48 or 29:05. And as I sit and watch, the playback jumps over parts of the file I copied." And there's no support either. Thus many users are forced to seek for the best DVD Shrink alternative to transfer DVDs to USB flash drive.
