    I downloaded the dvd decoder, 3.1.9.0 version, and it works great to burn movies that are less than 4.7 gb. However, most of my movies I want to back up are larger than 4.7 gb. I would like to learn how to burn these movies. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Try DVD Shrink, you'll love it. It will compress a 9 to fit a 5 or you can reauthor and strip out extras and reduce or eliminate compression

    are there any compromises when you reauthor?

    I'm not sure what you mean by compomises but I haven't found a way to keep the menus in tact when you reauthor. There is a lot of control in that you can even play with the start and end points to create a little more room thus less compression.

    mfurj, when you re-author, all you get is the movie. No need for the menu's, right?

    Now if you want to save all the content on the disc, then just shrink it without re-author. Then the menu would be needed.
