    There are commercial DVDs that I own. I want to make a backup copy of that
    9gb DVD onto a 4.7 gb DVD blank dis.

    I have Nero6 Burning ROM. Where do I find Nero6 DVD Shrink. I don't see
    that as a feature.

    Is it a separate piece of software?

    Is there a freeware or shareware software that will accomplish a similar
    task? What do people think of MyDVD or SmartRipper? Any other

    Thank you.

    I have found problems with a lot of software and the lipsync towards the end
    of a film. The following software is what I use with 100% success:-

    DVD Region-Free - this runs in the background and removes Macrovision,
    Protection and Region Coding from the film
    Clone DVD - this is used to actually copy the film - it is in
    here that you can remove menus and subtitles etc.

    If you want to merge two films onto one disc, then use Clone DVD to rip the
    files to your hard drive, then use TMPGEnc DVD Author to put them into one
    folder on your hard drive, then use Clone DVD to shrink and burn onto a

    Hope this helps.

  5. As Cathy mentioned, you just need DVDShrink and Nero. The newest verison of
    DVDShrink (3.1) can automatically use Nero to burn the DVD when it's done.
    Still, I like version 2.1 better.

    I'm wondering what will happen when I try this from my limited user
    account. Currently, I have to use "run as" an admin to be able to burn
    from Nero.

    Why do you like the 2.1 version better?

  9. Perhaps he likes the lower quality grainy effect?

    And the fact that it cocks up the removing of subtitles!!

    I like it better too - leaves you in control more - freakin nero takes over
    in the new version and have never seen grainy picture with the older
