    I hope one of you experts can help me. I’ve been backing up my DVD’s for a short time now and every now and then run into a roadblock. Lately I hit more of a speed bump. This has happened to me before.

    I was trying to back up Night at the Museum. I first ran it through the latest version of DVD HD Fab, and then I ran it through VOB Blanker. (here I just ran the one Video_ts file) and set those files to a folder on my hard drive. I then was going to reauthor with DVD Shrink. I could only get it to 73% compression (I’d prefer to be at 80 or above) I broke down and used one of my DL discs. Everything appears fine except when I go to play it on a machine. The move starts out fine, be when it gets to the menu I can do nothing. I can’t “click” on the play movie. I press menu and it starts at the beginning again (20th Century Fox logo) I can then skip the chapter and get to the beginning of the movie.

    Should I do something else? I hate to waste the DL discs.

    Thanks!

    Alan

    When you use the "Re-author" feature of DVD Shrink, menus will not work. Did you start over, when doing the DL disc, or use the files after using VOBblanker?
    I had no problem doing this movie with DVD Shrink w/Nero (movie only), and AnyDVD running in the background. Don't remember the compression, but it looks good on my 36" tv, and my friend's 50" tv.

    My bad. I did not mention when I was burning to the DL disc I was not using reauthor I just opened files, so it was backing up the entire disc.

    Reauthor looked fine, just a lower compression rate than I thought was OK.

    You shouldn't even use DVD Shrink when burning to a DL disc...rip with DVDFab HD Decrypter and then burn via "Build" mode in Imgburn to DL.

    Thanks for the info!

    Imgburn a different program, or is it part of Nero?

    Hey here's an idea, I'll do a search on it.!!!

    Thanks again

    No, Imgburn is it's own entity...an excellent and free one at that.
