    I'm looking to make a backup up copy of Minority Report which is 2:25 in length. I have no knowledge or experience in burning a dual layered disc to a dvdr and this will be my first attempt at doing so. The programs I have are Anydvd, dvdclone and dvdshrink. How can I burn a movie of this length using those programs, onto one single dvd and still maintain almost 100% picture quality? I don't care about extra features, but I would like to keep the main menu and subtitles. I'm trying to avoid using 2 discs, but if I must use 2, how is it done? (I will be watching this movie on a 32 inch hdtv, so quality is important) Can someone list how this can be accomplished in simple, straightforward steps?

    Use VobBlanker and blank out all the extra features.

    Rip the movie using AnyDVD. Then open the DVD Folder using VobBlanker.

    Go to "Titles=>Blank All"

    Next, find the VTS with the main movie. Select it and click on "Skip".

    Under settings, place a check on "use input folder".

    Hit process. VobBlanker should finish in about 5 seconds. Close VobBlanker.

    Next, open the folder with DVD Shrink. This will let you shrink the movie more if needed or just create an ISO if not.

    Process the movie and use the "Create ISO Image" option. Also, if it is compressing, make sure that Deep Analysis is checked. After a couple of minutes, you will have an ISO image.

    Next, use ImgBurn to burn the ISO to DVDR.

    Will compressing reduce the picture quality? I can not even fit an 84 min movie onto one disc unless its compressed; I'm not sure what compressing actually does.

    I'm even more confused by your method. I'm about ready to give up burning dvds and just stick to original copies.

    Is there a video tutorial of your steps somewhere?

    I will give that guide a go and let you know what the hell happens.

    What is the difference between 100% compression and 63% compression? Does it affect the picture quality or what?

    100% compression means it is not being compressed so it will be 100% quality.

    63% compression means it is being compressed to 63% of the original size. It will take a HUGE hit in quality. The larger and better your screen the more you will notice it.

    When you use VobBlanker to blank the extra features, you will scarcely find a movie that needs to be compressed. You can go 1 step further by using menushrink to compress the menus to still images instead of motion menus. For movies like Star Wars, it will save up to 1GB by compressing the menus alone!!!

    If you really want to avoid compressing, you can also cut out the ending credits. Don't cut all the credits if you do this. Leave a few seconds so that the movie doesn't just end.

    Im completely confused by vobblanker. I would really like to avoid compressing anything because picture quality is most important to me. Can I achieve the same results with dvd shrink or dvdfab as vobblanker? And what is the next step once I've turned the moive into an iso file? (some movies will burn in full with 100% quality, thank god)

    How about using a dvd+r DL and booktyped to dvd-rom and burnt with imgburn? 100% quality and no compression. BTW use verbatim dvd+r DL discs or in a pinch ritek 2.4x +r DL

    Ripit Used to do Movie+Menu

    I believe Dvdfab HD Decrypter Platinum Does Movie+Menu and a customized Rip. It's a Pay program.

    I'm always late to the party. I've nailed burning dvds/shrinking them down without quality loss, but I made the mistake of buying a 100pk of memorex dvdrs. From what Ive been reading, these discs are crap and will not last more than a few years. Is this true? And i cant return them because I opened them. Would brands like Sony, Fuji, Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim be better to go with next time around?
