    Hi all -- I'm thinking I'm making this backing up DVDs thing much more difficult than it has to be.

    Here's my question:

    When I used to burn these to CDRs it was a MUCH easier process:

    1) Rip w/ SmartRipper
    2) Convert to MPEG1 with DVDX
    3) Burn onto 2 CDRs with Roxio EZ CD Creator 6

    I tried to do DVD+R like this:

    1) Rip w/ SmartRipper
    2) Convert to MPEG2 w/ DVDX
    3) Burn onto 1 DVD+R with Roxio EZ CD Creator 6

    Well -- the quality isn't great -- but acceptable but I'm having audio problems. About mid-way through the movie the audio loses sync w/ the video (about .5 second delay). Otherwise it works fine! And in my standalone DVD player... yay!

    Can't I just "tweak" this a bit to fix these minor issues instead of going through all the rigorous (though EXTREMELY helpful) work all the guides in this and other forums give me?

    Any thoughts anyone??
    I'd love it if I could.

    You are following a wrong way!
    You don't need to encode the video fomr the beggining.

    You should use DVD Shrink and re-encode the video in 30 minutes! See the guide here: http://users.auth.gr~ichatzim/shrink.htm

    You are so right! After I posted that I discovered DVD Shrink! I LOVE IT! It works PERFECTLY!

    Now I just use DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter to burn. Doesn't take all that long and the quality is nothing short of perfect! I don't know why anyone uses anything else!

    Thanks for the help! I'm so excited that I finally figured this out! YAY!!
