    If there is a 8 GB dvd ISO file, but there aren't any 8 GB dvd's to burn them to, is ther any program a person can use to still shrink the ISO to 4 GB?

    If it's a movie file, then try DVD Shrink

    it's a DVD ISO movie file, but dvd shink doesn't "analyise" ISO files, only VOB and the other DVD files

    I would second that, use Shrink, mount the ISO to a virtual drive and have Shrink "Shrink" it like it is a normal DVD. This will give you a 4.7GB File so you can burn it to a DVD+/-R(W) disk.

    open dvd shrink, got to file, open disc image, browse to 8gig .iso, shrink, backup, job done

    no need to mount iso or change to .vob

    hi

    if its a dvd film structure inside open/extract it with ISOBUSTER or ULTRAISO you will then have vob/bup/ifo = nice!

    it sounds the size of a dvd9 so burn it to a dual layer 8.5 gig dvdr with dvd decrypter

    cept that cost $5-6 a disc and gets expensive when you can easily fit a movie onto dvd-5 with miminal compression by removieg all the extra fluffing

    Rotary is right. Use Isobuster to create the video files on your hard drive. Use dvd shrink to compress the files. Just use open files instead of dvd rom or player. Compress as necessary.
