    I'm using dvdshrink to condense a bunch of my dvd-9 to dvd-5 discs. I tried delting out extras, subtitles, extra languages, edit start and stop times. I was wondering what program (freeware if possible) I could use to actually delete out the non-needed menus (so dvd shrink can give me a better compression ratio). Also if I cut out the 2ch audio and just left in the dolby 5.1 would it still be able to work on a tv and dvdplayer? (with no dobly decoder)

    Thanks

    All you need to do is click on 're-author' in DVD Shrink. This will leave you with the movie only and nothing else. I presume you have the version 1.3? There is a new version available now - v.3.0 Beta which is currently being tested by members but you can still use v1.3. Yes if you cut out one of the audio channels it will still play OK but it's usually not necessary to do so unless you are within a hairs breathe of the target size.

    Thanks, but I just gave up and did the movie only option under re-authoring :)

    I have tried to burn 5 or 6 discs so far and 1 works on my pc, ps2 and stand alone dvd player. I think that I'm going to update the firmware or just try different media.

    I've heard ritek is one of the better brands. How do you know which other brands are ritek repackaged or is made by them? (same high quality)
