    I have been trying to backup my movies all week and i tried a bunch of different stuff. I tried with nero, copy to dvd, and decrypter. I have no problem backing up the files to the hard disk. When it comes to burning them to a dvd it wont let me. Nero and Copy To DVD say that the media is not the size (4.3 gb for Napolean Dynamite) and Decrypter doesnt even recognize the media. Decrypter says no medium or something like that. I have tried 3 different types of Dvd-R (DVD5 4.7 gb) and never had this problem in the past when using copy to dvd. The screen says at the bottom: necessary media DVD5. Please let me know what i can do.. THanks

    Have you used DVD Shrink to compress your files so that it will fit on a 4.7gb disc?
    Most movies need some compression to fit.

    So if you have not had this problem before, what has changed?
    There must be something different as otherwise you would not be having problems.
    Sorry that I can't help.

    Perhaps you should use a DVD-RW while you are trying to find out what the issue is, that way you are not waisting your media, and what is the media you have been trying.

    You said
    I have been trying to backup my movies all week and i tried a bunch of different stuff.

    First--Have you successfully burned DVD's of the same type? As bardie said, you have to compress the files--you also need to match the media type (-,+)You said you have used DVD Shrink before--do you use it before or after the encoding? There are several excellent guides--one you just got from Shark08--Here is another which helps quite a bit--
