    I have just started copying my DVDs onto my hard disk. I only want to copy the main movie, not all the extra pieces. Using DVD Shrink I notice that with some of my DVDs appear to have 2 identical tracks for the main movie. When I look at them in the small preview window they look the same. What is the difference? Will I be in trouble if I only select the first one? Thanks.

    It usually means that one title is in the regular screen format (4:3) and the other is in the widescreen format (16:9), either choice will do, it's upto you.

    Note: sometimes several titles could also represent different angle shots for certain scenes in the movie.

    I saw a comment about angle somewhere else. What does that mean. If I copy one track only do I lose something if they are different angles (whatever that means)?

    The only thing you lose is a different perspective of a shot or scene in the movie. Just think of it as looking at something happen from one spot then seeing the same thing happen from a different spot or area, you didn't lose or miss anything, you just had a different view of it.
