First, I wanted to say I LOVE this forum. There were tons of questions I had about the DVD backup world that bystanders were unable to inform me of. Now, the world is mine. Anyways, I've started using X-Copy Xpress about 8 months ago. The copies were good enough - with the exception of the "Backup" flash screen. However, recently I discovered DVD Shrink and Decryptor. These work great - with ONE expection....for the dual layered backups, there seems to be more pixelation in the compression than with XCOPY. I would love to move further away from XCOPY, but I am weary of the quality of the copy in DVDSHRINK. Any suggestions on tweaking the settings so I can get a more perfect copy???!!! Thanks for the help!
