    I see that DVD Shrink can write to a DVD-9 disk.

    That being the case will the original video quality of a dual layer movie be retained and burned to a DVD-9 disk without compression?

    I did a search about this and did not find much info to be sure about.

    Thanks to all who respond.

    Hi,

    Welcome to afterdawn. First let me tell you that shrink does not have a burn engine therefore it does not burn..it uses another program (i.e. nero, imageburn and a few others) to burn to dvd. The purpose of using dvd shrink is to make dvd compliant files small enough to fit onto a dvd-5 (single layer dvd). Using a dvd-9 would not require compression as the movie that you do not wish to compress can be burned to it with a layer break. One movie that comes to mind is Lord of the Rings which most here have burned to a dual layer dvd without any compression. I suggest you look at the following link to get some information:

    If you have anyspecific questions on anything in that link please do not hesistate to post back here and someone will get you on the right path.

    The quick answer is yes, but there really would be no need to use Shrink at all for creating a Dual Layer disk it would just be over kill and unecessary. I would suggest you just use this method.

    1. Rip movie to hard drive with DVDFab Decrypter
    2. Burn Dual Layer disk with ImgBurn

    Thats simple, quick and will give you a very good backup!

    You were quicker than me that time Matt27

    bbmayo,

    No problem as I have used your guides to teach myself how to do backups or settings for certain programs. I'm trying to give back what you 'old-timers' have bestowed upon me :).

    What was I thinking ?? It must be the heat...

    Of course DVD Shrink does not burn the disk. Where was my head?


    But thanks anyway for the links to the other tools and the guide info. They make it easy.
