ok so here is the deal I have several different programs I have aquired for burning and ripping and shrinking etc. etc. that I am still trying to figure out how to use all of them however there are two main questions I need to get answered. #1. when I use a program such as nero to burn a movie that is an avi or mpeg or whatever the only way I have figured out to turn that into a dvd is to use nero's option to create my own movie but once I do it takes anywhere from 6 to 10 hours to burn ( why wont it go faster ? ) and question #2 is there any way to take mpegs or avi's and open them in a program like dvd shrink so that I can shrink them to fit onto a normal 4.7 gb everytime I open one of those types of programs it always asks me to insert a dvd into one of my drives but it wont just let me open a file is there a way to trick it or fix it ????
