    First and foremost welcome to AD. I feel you are going to have to get a basic understanding of this on your own through a little trial and error I think. Keep reading those Guides until they make some sense to you, they aren't too difficult to grasp. There are 3 basic things that are involved in backing up a DVD movie and they are:

    1. Ripping
    2. Compression/Re-Encoding
    3. Burning

    Of course there may be more than that from time to time but that's just a basic rundown. There is a wealth of info on all three of these topics, not only in the guides but also on the forums as well. Try doing a search on "ripping" or "Shrinking" and see what you get, may surprise you.

    Also a free tip: Stay away from Memorex if you can. Not very good for burning. Go with something like Verbatim, or Ritek/Ridata if you can find them. (Radioshack carries Ridata)

    Here are a few sites that can also be very informative.

    Again welcome to AD! :)
