    1. Only two types of discs... DVD-9 = more than 4.7G up to approx 8.5g. DVD-5 = 4.7g or less

    2. Decrypter has it's own burn engine encoded into it.

    3. Self-explanatory. Think about the word [bold]shrink[/bold]... Then look at number 1 again.

    Hi skoalmint, 4468mb is 4.46 gig. Keep this in mind. The blank dvd discs are labeled 4.7 gig, but actually only hold 4.36 gig of data or movie files. Its best not to burn to the outer edge of a blank so it is better to keep total file size to about 4300mb or 4.3 gig. Just a little info for your notes. Good luck.

    Open Shrink, click EDIT--then Preferences--then File I/O. If you want to burn with Nero check that box and Shrink will automatically open Nero for burning when its done. If you UNCHECK the box for Nero, Shrink will automatically open Decrypter for the burnback when its done compressing.
