    I have this particular DVD which like o compress into 1 dvd. (Original is also 1 dvd)
    It's concert dvd (Rush in RIO) which is about 7.3 GB,
    for some reason DVD shrink will not compress it to make it fit on 1 dvd when I use automatic copmression setting,
    I know it works fine with movies but that might be because dvd movies are not 7GB or more.
    Can someone help me & thank you.

    Hello RXV2300. :)

    Due to its compression algorithm, DVD Shrink has a limit to how much compression it can apply to a given video stream.
    It seems you've reached this limit.
    My guess would be it's due to this DVD containing a fairly big LPCM audio track.

    Your options are either to remove this track (if other like AC3 are available), or run the "shrunk" files through DVD Shrink a second time (ignoring the "Files are too big..." error message).
