    use your original disc. Some backups dont burn properly, or poor quality media has been known to fail over time.


    is a little vague

    sorry i was being vague as well. was it a bad sector error?? or an incorrect file format?? or some thing else??

    either way your best bet is using the original

    use the original
    open shrink, open disc, wait for it to analyse.

    you have two options, backing up whole movie including menus/extras or backing up movie only which will still give you chapters but no menu (this is your better option on bigger movies as it will get compression down)

    option 1-click on backup and wait, if compression is around 80% or less deep analysis is recommended

    option 2-click on reauthor, drag main movie across to backup window, go to compression settings, uncheck unwanted sound and subtitles, backup. (i recommend running deep analysis if compression is around 80%).

    If you have a dual sided disc/2 discs which you do, use option 2.Go through the above steps with side 1 or disc 1, which will put that side on your harddrive. Then reopen shrink and go to open file, browse to the above file on harddrive, open it, click on re-author, open dvd browser and browse to dvd drive (which now has side 2/disc 2 sitting in it), drag side 2's movie into your window and you will now have [bold]Title1 and Title1(2)[/bold]. Back up this and shrink will output it as disc size. You will get a slight pause between title changes, much the same as from the layer change on original movies. This method can also be used for 2 completley different movies/episode discs however compression does get high

    okay sorry im so late with this answer, but to your last question deadcat..
    If you have a dual sided disc/2 discs which you do..
    I don't have a dual sided disc..i have to separate disks but the first part of the movie is on one disk and the second part of the movie is on the second disk, so i have the full movie on two separate dvds.. after i put both dvds in and use dvd decrypter, i will open the second disk with dvd shrink and it will analyze it and everything fine, but when i put the first disk in and try to open it with dvd shrink, i will get a box that says dvd shrink encountered an error and cannot continue failed to open file "C:\Americanhistoryx\video_ts.ifo" the system cannot find the file specified...or i will get an error that says invalid dvd navigation structure

    I tried useing dvd shrink (3.1.7version) to backup two movies into one disk useing methods described in this forum. whenever I opend IFO files of the second disk they replace first one.
    I tried renameing the files and put them in the same directory. However this is not a sound way of doing things...... any suggestins

    paulser99, what program did you use to get 2 discs?? I think IfoEdit may be what your looking for. Although using the original is going to be your best bet (and alot easier).

    NanoDVD dont open the ifo file with shrink, just scroll to the folder you movie is and click on it

    i think that the program i used when i first started to back-up movies, was dvd Xcopy...this program was the one i used and that is how i got my two disks for the same movie but i will try that Ifoedit and see if that will work thanks a bunch.
