how do i shrink a big file any one know a better software for shrinking 7.45
Nero Recode 2 is nice.
Anything that big I would use dvdrb/cce,its a little tricky to setup but after its setup it a one click tool:http://www.afterdawn.com/guides/archive/dvd_rebuilder_tutorial.cfm
the only drawback is the time it takes,but picture quality is unmatched imo .
Welcome. As you might know there are alot of programs that can compress the 7.45 gb file.
I agree w/ jim_dandy that for the best quality use DVDRebuilder w/ CCE ( cost $ 58.00 ) NeroRecode is also excellent as is DVDShrink. Nero Recode is part of Nero Ultra ( $49.00-99.00 depending on where you buy it) DVD Shrink 188.8.131.52 is FREE and if you are using the 2 pass encode is excellent.
All of the above programs are not quick but they will give you above average to excellent results.
Shrink is the best to get started. It can do a good job and has a lot of options and even if you move to something else your likely to still need it for checking out or ripping DVDs or making ISO or editing ect...
I use CCE/DVDrebuilder preference wise.
domer, along with the excellent choices already offered, there is also Pinnacle InstantCopy 8 and Intervideo DVDCopy2. Along with recode, shrink,and Rebuilder/CCE, these are my top 5 burning apps.
i agree with jim dandy that RB/CCE is the absolute best, but shrink is free and you might want to get your feet wet before using RB/CCE. Altho it's easy to use you will need some knowledge to set it up.
