Hello, I recently purchased a DVDRW/CDRW drive for my computer, came with a disc that apparently had Nero on it, so I never had to pay for it (maybe its a trial though... never said anything about it being a trial..). I wanted to start backing up my movie collection because a few of my DVDs have broken or scratched and I had to buy new copies, which was a hassle, so here goes: I have DVD Shrink 3.2 (latest version downloaded from afterdawn.com) and as I said before, I also have Nero. I have successfully made backups of: Deja Vu, Philadelphia, The History boys, Children of Men, The Bone Collector, The Last King of Scotland, and (hurrah for it) The Boondock Saints. However, when I tried to make a backup of The Queen, after analyzing the disc, it only showed a 19 minutes main movie, which turned out to be a making of feature. I'm guessing that this is because of some type of DRM on the disc that DVD Shrink cannot decrypt. I'm not terribly concerned about backing up this DVD specifically, but if this one wont back up, then some other movies must not, right? Basically what I've been doing is: Opening disc with DVD SHRINK <DVD shrink analyzes> Clicking "Backup!" Selecting to burn to the blank disc in my DVDRW optical drive (since I have Nero it goes straight to burn). <DVD Shrink Encodes> <DVD Shrink Burns> Out pops the disc and I have a backup on my hardrive also (I cant find a way to keep that from happening so I just delete it each time after the disc successfully burns). So, my question is, what's a better way, program, etc? I know that some people backup the movie onto their hard drive, then shrink the movie, change the file type, then burn, but I have no idea how to do that. I'm probably going to have more questions... at least I'm posting in the newbie forum, right?
