    I just purchased Alcohol 120% and I am unable to finish burning because I receive the message that my disc does not have enough space. Not sure if I am completly doing it wrong, or what? Please assist.

    what are you trying to burn?
    how big is the file?

    Trying to copy a retail DVD. Do I need to use DVDDecryptor first?

    how big is the file?

    Alcohol 120% can make copies of DVD, that said it will not compress or re-encode (strip copy protection) of any movie DVD disk.
    Alcohol 120% is more a program for backing up programs and game (it dose certain CD Protections like Safedisk, scandisk etc.) If you are trying to back up DVD games it seems to have problems doing so.

    Hope this helps.

    Not sure off hand as I am not at my computer. If that is the case I should be able to shrink it and then use Alcohol to burn?

    Thanks

    you can do,but the easiest way is to use dvd shrink then burn with dvd decrypter...both are free.

    newcomer.....remember if you use shrink/decrypter,you must disable nero in shrink to allow for decrypter to burn the file.
    DVD SHRINK>EDIT>PREFERENCES>FILE I/O> UNTICK "BURN WITH NERO".
    with regards hursty
