Best DVD burning software

    I just wanted a recommendation on what software to use, or if someone could help me solve the problem I'm having. I am using NeroVision currently, and I am not too happy with the results. I have a movie on my hard drive that is 1hr 37mins and I used Videowave 5 to encode it to MPEG-2 48kHz audio, 352x480 resolution. I tried to burn it to a DVD-RW, the size of the file is 4.28GB, but Videowave told me the disc requires 5.8GB of space. So I tried using NeroVision and it worked, however about 23mins into the movie the picture freezes and the DVD time keeps going. When I tried burning it again, I tried adding chapters and NeroVision would lock-up at various times everytime I tried it. It's not my DVD player because it does it in Windows Media Player too. I hope my problem is just because Nero is not good when it comes to DVD's. I am thinking of trying Roxio Easy CD & DVD Creator 6. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanx...

    I suggest you read a bit. The answers are right on the second thread; the FAQ section.

    The new version of dvd shrink is nice...i have also heard good things about Record Now Max.

    but if your a newbie to all of this I still highly recommend 1. dvd decrypter 2.dvd2one, 3. nero or record now max...with the guides afterdawn provides(makes backing up process pretty easy)

    I would actually disagree with you there. If you were a Newbie, i would tend to go with DVD Shrink since it combines both ripping and compression into one. Just use a burner to write it to DVD-R.

    Here's a tutorial on DVD Shrink:

    Well, we all have are own methods & I have only been at this dvd backing up process for about a month now so you are probably more knowledgable than me, but I have found that the afterdawn guides and their recommendation of software work well...well at least they have for me.

    thanks dj
