DVD Shrink is the best program ever. I had a great conversation with a guy who uses macs last night, he didnt believe me that all I had to do was hit backup in dvd shrink and it would copy and compress it to the media. heh
I have a DVD drive and a seperate DVD Burner in my system. Can I just do a direct disc copy like I can with a CD? Would I have any problem with copy protection? For purposes of my own backups only of course....
I used dvd shrink most of the time. It is a good program. If you only want to back up the movie and none of the extras i recommend that you go to "re author" mode and just select the movie title and get rid of any audio tracks that you dont need(commentary, second language, etc) this will give you the best back up of the original film w/ the least if any recompression at all.
If you want to backup the whole disc but drop the quaility on the extras more then the movie, i would use dvd-rebuilider along with dvd decrypter.this involves recreating the whole dvd and can take a few hrs but the results are pretty good. I have a link to a nice guide on how to do this if any one is interested. just pm me for it or if a mod says its ok to post it ill post a link to the guide
