Hi all. I could use some advice. LONG STORY. My son has 6 DVD's he wants to archive. So last week I bought a DVD burner and some DVD+R disks and downloaded DVDShrink3.2 Yesterday, I checked my old back issues of MaximumPC and the April 06 issue mentions how to copy DVD's using DVDShrink. So last night I tried the first disk. I just had it do a straight copy without modifying anything. It copied to the hard drive, ejected the disk and asked for a blank disk. So I put in a blank disk, closed the door and it started to copy the back-up to the disk. (I thought DVDShrink didn't have its own software to burn a disk?) It took about 30 minutes for the whole thing. I tried Nero 7 essentials that came with the burner to see if it was any faster. Nero copied the disk to the hard drive and asked for a blank. Then said it couldn't copy to the blank because there wasn't enough room. That when I realized that my sons DVD's were dual layer and DVDShrink was compressing 56%. I had my son try the first disk to see if it actually worked in a DVD player. It works, but the picture is a little grainy. I managed to copy the first 3 disks with no problem. On the 4th disk it got to 91% and the program froze. No idea what happened. Had to use task manager to get out of it. Then a few minutes later, I got a blue screen. I turned off the computer and will try the last 3 disks tonight. Should I be worried? (Using Windows XP w/SP2) So, I take it the Quality section in DVDShrink can improve the image? Is there any other software that can shrink a DVD like DVDShrink? Sorry for the long story and dumb questions. This is kind of new to me.
