I am new but thought I was doing well until I went to burn the dvd. I'm using RipIt4Me with DVD Decrypter, DVD Shrink and FixVTS. After Shrink was done the file size was fine (it was compressed) for a DVD but when I went to burn it it stopped about 75% into it and said the DVD was full!!! Another funny thing was that when I went to burn (XP) it said the DVD wasn't formatted so I formatted it - but haven't had to to that B4. Anyone know why I ran out of room and why I had to format it?? My big issue is why I ran out of room. I tried it all again on another computer (XP) and got to the same point when it said it was having trouble copying (burning) the first file...I think it was thinking it wasn't formatted too but didn't say that and I couldn't even find a way to format it on that computer...and it's the computer I want to do my DVD backing up on. I'm so frustrated after 3 hours I could scream/cry (yes, I'm a woman, lol). Please Help!!! THANKS!!
