    DVD Shrink will only recognize DVD compliant files - VOB, IFO and BUP. You'll need to use something such as TMPGEnc/DVD Author to convert your files to the proper DVD format in order for Shrink to recognize them :)

    keno72,

    Have you tried NVE(NeroVisionExpress)? It will allow you you to convert the files(It also converts faster than most of the other file conversion apps), add more than one file, create a custom menu for your compilation so you can navigate and go to any file you wish, set chapters, compress, and burn to DVD all in one app.

    It even has a software remote control with which to preview your work and make sure it works and allows you to make any changes you wish before you burn to disc.

    It comes in the Nero Ultra 6 suite, an entire suite of audio and video programs which you can use for free each and every month for the entire month til you decide to buy(which I highly recommend). You must reinstall it each month and then you are good to go for that month.

    Don't forget to install the update packs 1-6 with the exception of pack #3,InCD. You don't need it and it can cause problems.

    Good luck however you decide to go :>)
