    just my opion here..........

    don't know what you like to keep, but i usally just keep the main movie only, i don't care about the extras and all.

    don't know what proggys you are using but, you might
    want to try..........

    DVDShrink and DVDDecypter in this order......

    they are free and very good proggys aswell....

    what you can do is.....use DVDShrink and RE-AUTHOR
    and save the MAIN MOVIE only to your HD(that way most all will fit on one DVD-5 disks)

    then open up DVDDecypter in W(write mode) and burn your movie....

    if you need more help post again, there are also many
    guides on this forum you can read, that will walk you through this exact process..........

    being a newbie i wouldn't run out and buy any proggys
    until you get the hang of it. you can also use
    DVD-RW disks so you can practice then erase the disks
    over and over,

    this is a great place to be afterdawn.com...........

    you can also post your system/programs imformation to
    help everyone help you.........

    ok well great luck

    hey another newbie here with similar question.

    i'm trying to back up a dvd with dvdshrink, except that the contents seem to be over 4.7G even if the automatic shrinking reduced it to 65%.

    the red bar appears, and the green bar says 4464, the red bar says 5348. i tried to uncheck the menus, the red bar comes down to 4944.

    i tried unchecking everything else but the contents are 0MB, and didn't affect the red bar's status.

    i tried backing it up anyway with decrypter and the remaining 30% was not backed-up. obviously because the file was too big.

    additional info: the dvd runs approximately 4-5 hours. and i'm using decrypter also.

    doctors, any suggestions?
