    Hi jd6576, welcome to aD,

    As you say, this is a "Newbie" question and belongs in the "Newbie Forum".

    The vast majority of DVD's are DVD-9's and therefore if not being split between 2 DVD's OR being backed up to a dual layer discneeds to be compressed a bit in order to fit on a single DVD. This can be done without any noticable quality loss. Using DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter you'll have no trouble doing it at all.

    Checkout the guide about the middle of the page on this thread -
