    I was apprehensive about recompression at first, as well. The first one I
    backed up was "Brotherhood of the Wolf", and I split it to two DVDs because
    I didn't want quality degredation, but after trying out DVD2One, all my
    fears about quality loss were laid to rest. I'm sure there is some quality
    loss. There must be for a lossy compression scheme. But it boils down to
    noticeability, and with DVD2One, I have backed up probably 8 or 9 DVDs so
    far, and I have compared most of them side-by-side with the originals on a
    PC monitor, which should show the defects easily if there are any, and there
    is virtually no difference that my eyes can tell. If there was pixellation,
    it existed in the original as well. I'm very happy with the results from
    DVD2One, and I think you will be as well.

    I guess for me since shrink is free I'm using that. I so far in the stargate
    sg1 can't see a problem. i didn't watch anything tho more then a few minutes
    so i can't tell yet. I'm still today backing up stargate sg1. i wish it
    didn't take 2 and a half to 3 hrs for one disc. that pisses me off it's so
    slow, :(

    It takes like 50 minutes to anylise it, then another 50 for it to encode it,
    then 55 to burn it. when i get my 4x dvd-r from then it'll take
    15-20 minutes to burn, but still, the analyse and encode in dvdshrink takes
    basically 2 hrs just for that, 1hr 50 minutes, and i would desperatly want
    to speed that up as fast as possible.

    thor, what do you suggest I do to speed up the encode and analyse process
    from dvd shrink? i am only doing full back ups, not movie only, but if you
    can think of anything to speed it up, I'd love it, :)

    DVD2One has no "analyze" phase. It's much much quicker.
    See above.
