    If you want only the main movie DVD Shrink is free and does a great job. It also lets you choose the audio and compression levels

    Link to the latest guide

    http://www.afterdawn.com/guides/archive/dvd9_to_dvdr_with_dvd_shrink.cfm

    It gets to be a little more tricky if you keep the menus and want them functioning IfoEdit will do it but it requires some work with it but you can check it out at

    Noker, if you don't mind spending a little money, download the trial versions of Clonedvd and Anydvd which work together. They will let you edit similar to DVDshrink but lets you keep the menu active and working. 30 day trial on both, then abou $40. each. Well worth the money. I use them all the time if I need the menu to work. Very easy to use to edit out extras.

    If I use IfoEdit to make the menu functional, do I actually erase something from the original file, I mean, do I win some free space?

    InstantCopy 8 will let you drop things while still keeping menus. A very versatile program (needs a riper though), with excellent video quality.

    The easiest way I have found to accomplish this without paying for software is this:

    1) Use TitleSet Blanker to get rid of unwanted material, basically you preview each VOB file with MPEG2 player (BSPlayer is what I use)... then choose which titleset to blank and it will replace original files with very small dummy files so as to leave the DVD structure still working. The nice thing is that it is the fastest and it still leaves the original in that same folder but with an ~ at the end of the filename so in case you want to undo changes just clik "Go back to originals" and it will undo any changes made and go back to your original files. Gets rid of annoying FBI, Studio logos and cr@p like that, when CloneDVD still leaves those in and plus this little tool is FREE.. http://shh.dvdboard.de/titlesetblanker.html

    2) Next you use DVD Shrink with "Full Disk Mode" and get rid of the extra audio channels and subtitles.

    Hi all,
    I've downloaded that tool and haven't burned with it yet but I did run some titles through it and watched them on the Shrink preview window, after I blanked all of the VOBs. The movie turned into a black screen that lasted about three seconds. HEHE!
    The blanked .VOBs are very small so you shouldn't have to watch a blank screen.

    I'm going to find a player so I can preview.

    fasfrank Make sure you are not blanking out the movie files... DO NOT blank VTS_1_XX if that's where the movie is. If you mess up, just click on "Go Back to Originals" and you are back to normal
