    On disc one of the BBC version of The Office, the DVD size is too large for Shrink to back up. Unfortunately, there is really nothing to uncheck to make it smaller. Does anyone have a way that I can still back this DVD up? I have also tried DVD fab but the size is still to large for Shrink.

    Thanks.

    You can actually bump up your target size to 4400 and be safe. How big was the file after you used DVD Shrink? You can run that file through DVD Shrink a second time in some instances with no consequences. Another alternative would be to use DVD Rebuilder which should have no problem at all "compressing" what ever you want to do.

    Take your new files that DVD Shrink created the first time through and run those through DVD Shrink a second time.

    Rebuilder.
    Though Shrink is a good transcoding program and improved with the Quality Settings for higher compression in 3.2, it still can't compare to an encoder for high compression. Take LOCOENG's suggestion and use DVD Rebuilder. There's an entire forum devoted to it and I'm sure you can get someone to help you. If not, PM me and I'll get involved and see if I can help get you going.

    You still decrypt and rip your files to the hard drive the same as you would for Shrink. With RB set up, you open your files and encode. I have the RB Pro, so I'm not sure what the free version consists of nowadays. I know it's got the free encoder(s) included. You can set RB up with Hanks encoder and do the job for free. You can output in file or ISO format. With the Pro I can opt to burn automatically with ImgBurn (another freebie). Basically, your problem will only be doing the setup and learning the controls. Besides the Rebuilder forum here at AD, it has it's own website, http://dvd-rb.dvd2go.org/ .

    This is way too confusing to do. Is there a step by step anywhere?

    If you're referring to RB, you may want to ask those questions in the RB forum? Most of the old guides are for RB when everything had to be installed manually. The isntaller now takes care of all the bother. Pro includes the help files and guide. I noticed in RB downloads (from their website) there's a help folder. Check it out.

    Alkohol does some good guides and has this one here at AD

    This gives a step by step on how to do the setup.
