Wait until it's released through Windows Update.
It's not the best idea to install a beta or an RC service pack.

Well, I have had it happen on 2 of 3 of my computers. Can't say 100% it is the issue, becuase it had been probably a week or 2 from the time of SP3 install and when I tried to use DVDShrink, so maybe another issue?
1 computer will not copy any, 1 will copy some (3 of 5), and the 3rd still copied all 5.

That really sucks as I really like DVD Shrink. Will wait for final and see what happens.
