    You have to uncheck some things ... usually checking the DTS in audio will cause this.

    Or manually compress the content more.

    If you're trying to do a DVD9 to a DVD5, than you'll have to comparess a lot or cut it into 2 discs.

    Hi all. :)

    venky, this can happen when DVD Shrink has reached its maximum compression limit (due to its compression algorithm) for a particular title.

    You have a few options:
    - If doing a full-disc backup, make sure you have removed all the unneeded audio/subpicture streams, and selected "Still Image" for unwanted extras.

    - If the compression is still not enought to reach DVD Shrink target size, you could try doing a movie-only backup using its Reauthor mode.

    - If the target can still not be reached, you will have to either "shrink" the disc a second time, ignoring the "Files are too big" error message, or split it to two discs.

    ddlooping,

    Your suggestions are quite useful, currently I tried double shrink, I did not check the quality of such movie yet ( did not play it yet)but I hate to keep two DVDs unless no option.

    Thanks, anyway
