    Hi all,
    I was wondering if anyone can help me. I been thinking of burning my collection of Family Guy into single DVD's. They come in two boxsets where 1 boxset contains 4 dvd's. My plan is to put 1 boxset into 1 dvd.
    I was looking at the features of DVD Shrink and the Re-author option but I am not too familiar with it for this plan. I have put these 4 dvd's onto my hard drive using DVD Decryptor and now wish to shrink them to fit into a 4.7GB DVD. Is there a way to do this so that I can have the menus working as well? If so, can anyone give me a step by step solution? Also, would I need any more programs other than Shrink, Decrypter, Nero??
    Your thoughts and points are greatly appreciated.
    I apologize if this question is repetitive.

    Your best off using shrink to compress and then a dvd authoring software like tmpgenc to put all movies to one disc.I would advise against 4 dvd's to one though the quality will be no where near the same as the originals as that is to much to put on one disc unless it is a duel layer disc you plan to put it on.

    yes i will try that TMPGenc software, thank you.
    I agree that the quality of the movie will diminish when putting 4 episode dvd's into 1, but its only cartoon so i am hoping it will not be so bad.
    I will give it a shot, and will post my success/failure :)

    i have opened TMPGEnc but i am not sure how to use it. I was looking through the guides here but it doesnt really give me clear step by step process after using Shrink.
    Can anyone direct me to some better instructions?
    Thanks
