     Go with DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter because they're both freeware and there's lots of available help in case of problems ... besides ... they really work ! ...

    Hi,

    I'm really liking the new version of DVD Shrink myself, 3.2.0.15 I believe.

    I've been messing around with Elby's CloneDVD2 and it's pretty good too :)

    If you are just starting out, you can't go wrong with Shrink. Once you get comfortable with it, and the quality differences between your backups and your DVD concerns you, you may want to check into the DVD Rebuilder/CCE combo. It uses a commercial encoding engine. However, as long as you stay within the 20 to 30% compression ranges, you shouldn't experience much of a quality problem.

    The best program will be debated but DVDshrink is a self contained program with ripping, authoring, previewing, compressing all built in and will autoburn with Nero, DVDdcrypter, and copytoDVD.

    With additional options for maxing out video quality it is the best program to start with.

    A number of us use a comercial encoder, CCE, with DVDrebuilder for backups because of its quality on large DVD backups. I believe this to be the best setup for backups and has never failed to produce the highest quality encodes for me.
